Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend - Expo!
Welcome to day one of Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend! My first days are typically jammed pack with plans, but this time we took it a little slower. Our plane from Atlanta didn't leave until almost 1 p.m., but luckily the flight was just over an hour, so it didn't take us very long. We arrived in Orlando and immediately headed toward the Magical Express so we could head to our hotel. Our check in with Magical Express was very quick and when I saw our bus pull up I got very giddy. If you know anything about me, I love anchors and all things nautical. So I got super excited when the Disney Cruise Line bus pulled up in our spot. I have been waiting to take this for a few years now and it has never shown up to get me...until today!!!
After we arrived at the hotel we quickly dropped our items in the room and headed over to the expo to pick up our bibs! I am typically at the expo very close to opening when there is a ton of people. We arrived at the expo around 4 p.m. and there were not a lot of people. Bib and shirt pickup was a breeze and we were able to look at all of the shops because it wasn't really crowded. The one change to the expo, which I loved, was they put all of the Run Disney merchandise in one building, away from the other vendors. This building is also where they had the Star Wars Dark Side photo opportunities!
After the expo we headed back to the hotel and decided we were going to take it easy. Since it was close to 6 p.m. when we arrived back at the hotel we at dinner at End Zone Food Court, which was pretty good! When we arrived back at the room we started getting ready for the race the next morning, check out Flat Kristen!
Check back for my race recap and my other days at Disney!
