    YAY! If I lived closer and was running a race there I would be all about this runner meet up. It sounds like a great time:)

    Sounds like a very fun morning so far! I love Disney! ๐Ÿ™‚ The best is being in the parks first thing in the morning before they open. I did a Segway Tour around the World in Ecopt with my fiance and it was such an incredible experience!

    This is so cool. I didn’t know Disney had meet ‘n greets like this. I’m obsessed with Disney races too (ever since I ran the Disney World Marathon last year) and I wish I lived in Florida so I could do more. Good luck with the half on Sunday!

    Loved this post! And all the pictures ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am a big fan of Disney, especially after running my first marathon there in ’08. I would like to follow the Disney Parks Blog–I clicked on the link but it seemed to bring me to a main website. Can you tell me how to get directly to the blog? I’d love to follow it!
    Wishing you a great run this weekend, and even more Fun!

    What a fun experience! Disney races, though pricey and crowded, are top notch. Everything from the shirts, to the on course food and entertainment, to the expos, to the post race parties. It’s pretty special.

    Running around Epcot sounds like so much fun! Definitely right about Verizon’s service in the parks. Had no issues in December!

    How was that such a great meet-up? Someone would be forced to stick with the run/walk group if they were not fast enough to keep up with the other group? I would be pissed.

    P.S. Jeff Galloway is a former Olympian too.

    I have gone to Epcot six times (drink around world-ing) since last summer and my Sprint phone has never had an issue.

    Wow, that all sounds so fun! We can’t wait to take our kids to Disney World one day! We have Verizon and can vouch for the reception anywhere! We are waiting for the new iPhone; we still have flip phones (the horror!) and just use our iPod Touches.

    Odd question but are any shop and stuff open during the race? I want to run the 2013 half marathon and mom will be attending but not running. Trying to find her something fun to do! (:

    • Meghann

      There’s a shop set up at the finish line, but it’s also a great race for spectators do she’ll have a few opportunities to see you running.
