Days in DisneyLand

Posted Feb 07 2013 6:36pm
Now that I've shared my Tinker Bell Half Marathon fun I wanted to share some other fun Disney moments from the trip.  Besides the race and 5k I announced at the Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend expo.  I love the energy of the Tinker Bell race and the expo.  The expo never gets too crowded and there are lots of great vendors and celebs.

I chatted with Sean Austin from Lord of the Rings on Friday and met Ali the first female winner of the Biggest Loser on Saturday.  The woman was in heels all day both days meeting fans and taking pics.  And she still ran the half marathon.  I'm impressed.
I picked up my first pair of Pro Compression socks, a new Raw Threads princesss "Cindy" tank, and Mom decided she "needed" the limited edition Run DisneyNew Balance 860's .
Naturally we had to show off our Disney kicks in the park.
Buzz Lightyear was impressed.
I also got to finally ride the CarsLand ride for the first time.  For those of you familiar with Epcot's Test Track it's similar.  However the CarsLand story is much better and the scenery you go through is breath taking. The line is still massive, however so use the single riders lane.  We waited 20 minutes vs 180 minutes!  We also still got to sit together.
Mom and I had a good time laughing about my ride photos.  Apparently I make the same face on every ride.  We call it "square mouth".  It's also the same face I made when I saw Santa as a toddler.  Square mouth for the win.
We also saw a cat.  At Disney.  Discuss this amongst yourselves.
After the race on Sunday, Mom and hit the parks once again in our new Raw Threads princess shirts.  Mom also got to show off her medal.
We walked about a very crowded Tomorrowland and Fantasyland.  We rode The Haunted Mansion before running across to Disney's California Adventure to see Aladdin again.  I love that show and the Genie is my favorite part.
 After the show we decided it was time for a celebration libation.
There's an al fresco bar that's upstairs of the Napa restaurant.  It was the perfect spot to relax with a Blue Moon.
On the way there we got a glimpse of the NewsBoys and Mickey performing.
Dinner was at Carthay Circle.  I liked our appetizer, but the service was very slow and the entree underwhelming.
Disney World will always have my heart of the special memories I made working there, but DisneyLand is so much fun to me.  Everything is so close together and easier to navigate.

What do you think? Disneyland or Walt Disney World?

Love and Mortimer Mouse,
Carissa & Kyle
