Disneyland Expo

 

Whew what a fun but exhausting day! I know I am skipping telling you all about several things, but I am trying to keep race things grouped together right now and will go back and talk about the hotel, parks, etc. So yesterday in my post I spoke a bit about going to the expo, so be sure to check it out for a few photos, but I was able to actually do some shopping today and walk around more so yes, you get to see more expo pictures.

So we actually woke up and went to Disneyland for a few hours and then walked over to the expo. I needed to get my coast to coast challenge bracelet and we needed some GU. I had ordered some before we left, but with the hurricane, the mail didn’t get delivered. It was a lot of fun but wow was it a madhouse!! So. crowded. We walked back over to the Disneyland hotel where the expo was, and went downstairs to runner relations to get my coast to coast bracelet. It was an easy fix.

We then went back upstairs to the expo floor where I was able to finally get to hold in my hand the new 20th anniversary medal. Friends, it is awesome in photos, but WAY more awesome in person. It is heavy, it is beautiful, I LOVE it!

I also got to see the new Donald medal, and of course the goofy medal I will get in January as well!

There were a lot of people around so i didn’t get as many photos as I wanted, but it was so nice to finally see them up close.

We did some walking around, bought our GU, sampled some products, and ran into some friends I used to work at expos with or have booths near, etc.

I also picked up my free poster which I will show you later when I get home. SmileIt was a great expo, lots of workers and volunteers, just crazy crowded. I was sad I didn’t see a Disneyland Half Marathon mug (unless I totally missed it). They had other kids of cups and glasses but I didn’t see a mug. Anyone else? All in all, if you haven’t been to a runDisney expo, you don’t want to miss it. You can still sign up for marathon weekend and the Princess half so don’t miss out on all the fun!

    I am doing th wine & dine half do i have to sign up for the expo or do i just show up to it? I didn’t see amywhere online saying i had to sign up for it so i am a bit curious as i am the only person running the race out of 6 people going.

    • The expo is where you have to go to pick up your race packet and bib, so everyone has to go and it’s open to the public. If you go to runDisney.com you will see info about the health and fitness expo

  2. I hope you did well today 🙂 I was at DL in 2009 and found the contrasts to WDW to be quite fun.

  3. What fun! I love the excitement and energy of packet pick-up and expo! My favorite is a toss up between the Chicago Marathon and the Cincinnati Flying Pig.

  4. I didn’t see a mug either so I don’t think there was one.
