Disney Princess Weekend: Sunday

 

If you missed my first two non-race recaps, you can check them out below:

Disney Princess Weekend: Thursday and Friday

Disney Princess Weekend: Saturday

Sunday morning we got up and ran the Disney Princess half marathon, but were back at the hotel by mid morning. Unfortunately, We missed breakfast in the lounge by just a couple of minutes, but were able to get some coffee from the wonderful ladies who work in the lounge to warm our freezing selves up! We showered and changed, and decided to go to the Magic Kingdom. We were starving, and I knew I wanted something yummy and greasy as a recovery food!

Why yes I did wear my tiara to the park, along with my medal.

We took the monorail over to the park, and the crowds were really not that bad.

We ended up in Fantasyland at Pinocchio’s and I ordered a fabulously greasy pizza with fries and a coke. I didn’t really care that it wasn’t healthy, my body was craving calories and carbs!

We used my magical fastpass to ride Peter Pan, then we did Mickey’s Philharmagic,

Haunted Mansion, and Pirates. About this time, I was getting really sleepy. My mom and I decided to go back to the hotel for a nap while Karen and her mom finished up in the Magic Kingdom. I know my limits, and if I wanted to be ANY fun at dinner, I needed a nap!

I slept about an hour, and it was glorious! I decided to run down to the shops at the hotel for a few minutes before getting ready for dinner. When I got back in the elevator, it was me, and another couple. I thought the man looked very familiar, but I was still half asleep. It hit me when I saw they had runDisney shirts on…It was Jeff Galloway and his wife!!! (he wasn’t wearing his Disney hat which is why it took me a minute!) He saw my medal and asked me if I had a fun race. I said I did, and I told him I had talked to him Friday at his meet up, and thanked him again for spending so much individual time with everyone. His wife laughed and said Jeff loved talking to people so it was no problem for him! Then Jeff told me the meet ups really had been taking off and taking on a life of their own and how he loved it! By then we were at my floor and I said goodbye. I of course immediately tweeted about it!

I had such a great time racing in my tutu, I wanted to be able to wear it again. I somehow convinced everyone that we NEEDED to wear our tutu’s to dinner that night at 1900 Park Fare.

We went to the lounge for appetizers and were having WAY too much fun. Let’s just say I get really silly when I have a glass of champagne! As we were sitting there, Jeff Galloway and his wife were walking by with their appetizers and went and sat at a table. my mom wanted to meet him, so she kept trying to “get his attention” with her medal.

They left and didn’t see us, but then he ended up coming back and walked right up to our table and started talking to us about the race! Of course we had to get a picture, too. he was so sweet and let us take about ten photos.

I of course had to tweet…again.

It was finally time for dinner, so we headed down to 1900 Park Fare we were ended up having to wait FOREVER to eat. We someone managed to entertain ourselves though.

Karen’s mom wasn’t feeling good so she went back to the room, and it was time for us to be seated. The food was excellent of course, and I had to keep apologizing to the table next to me because every time I would try to squeeze by to my table, my tutu would hit them in the face.

Have I ever mentioned I love Disney mac n cheese?

I think they thought we were crazy. But then the characters started to come by…and they thought we had lost our minds.

When the first stepsister came up, we were already standing and she came up behind me and scared the crap out of me so I made a kind of “ah!” scared noise (not loud) and she looked at me then walked off! Luckily she did come back…but when I tried to tell her about the race she told me she didn’t need some medal to feel secure and confident in herself.

Then when we tried to take a picture, she did this.

We finally got her to take a normal one

and as soon as we did, she turned and screamed right in my ear and said “not so funny when someone does it to you, huh?” We were absolutely dying laughing, it. was. hysterical.

Soon enough the other step sister came by, and she wasn’t very nice either. I told her that her sister was mean to us and she said we probably deserved it.

Finally, it was time to go, all of the fun from the day was catching up to us. We headed back to the room, and fluttered down the hall.

and for some reason decided to take a jumping picture. We actually hit it just right on the FIRST TRY (when does THAT happen?) until I realized my eyes were closed.

It may have taken us about 100 more tries to get it right (in between fits of laughter, of course!) I will just share a few of these little gems with you.

Comments

  1. Love all your recap posts – I also ran the Princess half and loved it!

    I am totally the king of jumping photos – I nailed it when I was about 13 and literally so many photos of me jumping around the world!

  2. Ya’ll are crazy. Looks like a ton of fun and I loved all of the photos =)

  3. You guys are so cute! What an awesome day! I’ve never eaten at 1900…but I did work there in the past…hmmmmm :)

  4. I don’t know that I have ever taken a jumping photo, but totally need to try it! It sounds like yall had a blast!

  5. Love your recap and definitly doing that race next year. looking forward to wine and dine and disneyworld marathon. your recaps are so fun!

  6. That was too funny!! :)

  7. Haha, LOVE this! You? Get crazy after a glass of champagne? Never ;) Love that your mom was trying to get Jeff’s attention. She is too funny!

  8. Ah- I want to go to a Disney race. They look like so much fun!

  9. Love this post. I ate at 1900 Park Fare a couple years ago and loved it. The Stepsisters are awesome. So fun!

  10. I LOVE it!!! I am definitely adding the Princess and TinkeBell halves to my running list for next year!!! I wore a green teamsparkle skirt for a Shamrock run on Sunday, and we went to the mall right after…and I got quite the looks, and some pretty strange comments! {referring the fact that I might still be hungover from Saturday night, reallly!?!?!}

  11. I love this post on so many levels! The pictures are amazing :) B Lee and I talked about going to 1900 PF next vacation – I think you just solidified it! :)

  12. Hilarious!! I love that you wore your tutus to dinner. That is just awesome. I was recently on vacation and my friend was the jumper and I was the taker of the jumping photos. It can take a lot to coordinate between the jumping and the photo taking to get that perfect jumping photo! :) Love your photos!

  13. That looks so fun! I need to get down there for these races! :)

  14. looks like sooooooooooooo much fun!!!!!

  15. Your evening sounded like so much fun! How can you not act silly while wearing a tutu?

    My husband and I did jumping shots with me in my wedding dress and him in his army uniform. It was so fun.

  16. Okay you are officially crazy, but runDisney will do that to you! What a fantastic experience!

  17. Absolutely love this!! Especially about the “step sisters” being so mean. ;)

  18. love that you guys wore your tutus! ADORABLE pics!

  19. It is so flipping adorable that you guys wore your tutus to dinner! I wanted to wear mine to Epcot but everyone else thought that was dumb! :-) I left mine in Florida because it was kind of beat up but I miss it! Sounds like another great day at Disney!

  20. Ok I just giggled so much my stomach hurts! That sure was a fun night!! I look more like I’m spazzing rather than fluttering….too funny!!

  21. Stefanie says:

    I read your blog, love it but never comment. This post made me laugh out loud at work. Oops . It’s been a rough day this hilarious recap I just what I needed to cheer me up.

  22. But again, don’t cop out and go thrifty either, especially if you
    see yourself spending a lot of time strollering.
