Fit for a Princess Expo

This morning I woke up bright and early like a kid on Christmas because I was so super excited to go to Disney’s Fit for a Princess Expo. I couldn’t’ wait to get there! I made my group show up 30 minutes before the doors even opened because I wanted to be one of the first people inside.

I was happy we got there early because we got a special greeting from our Fairy Godmother for the race tomorrow!

It was cute. She came out and was really excited about the race (and life in general!) and wished us all luck tomorrow! I think when I get older and retire I want to take her job! How fun would that be!

And then the doors opened! I was so excited. I had my credit card ready and rearing to go. I wanted to buy EVERYTHING Princess.

I tried on this crown, but I didn’t get it. I think I might pick one up AFTER finishing the race tomorrow and then wear it around the park for the rest of the day with pride. The rest of the Expo was overrated. There wasn’t much official merchandise, and what they did have was only so-so. They didn’t have much size varieties for anything. I feel bad for the people who came later in the day!

The Expo was held at the ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex which is pretty cool. I played soccer here when my team was in the National Championship competition. It brought back some nostalgia of back in my glory soccer days!

I also thought there would be more in the race swag bag. It was ok though. I like the shirt, but the sizes are all screwed up and mine is a little big. I also kind of wish the shirt was pink, but that’s just me!

I do enjoy the fact that my bib says “Princess Leslie” and it says Ariel on the bottom (my favorite princess!)

Who is your favorite princess?

We also got a bunch of info about other races with coupons, but I always loose this stuff in the shuffle!

I did purchase one thing at the Expo – A princess mug!

disney 147

I love the heart on the side and the pretty pink logo. It was well worth the $10 bucks! I plan on drinking many a tea in this cup while reminiscing of my (hopefully!) fabulous half marathon! :)

disney 148

Wish me luck in the morning! It’s going to be a 3 am wake up call! We have to be at the race by 4;30 to check bags and get in our coral! The race doesn’t start until 6:00! This is going to be nuts tomorrow, but hopefully it will be lots of fun and another great race to remember! Fingers crossed!

Epcot

After spending most of yesterday morning at Animal Kingdom, we decided to head over to Epcot and hang out for the rest of Friday afternoon.

disney 069

I love the Park Hopper option. We got to see and do so much in one day. It was a lot of walking around, but it was worth it!

disney 058

I love the Epcot Ball. It’s so distinctive.   disney 061

It also looks so pretty against the blue sky!

 disney 062 

I also love Epcot because of the World Showcase! It so fun to go around to all the different countries. We started off in the U.K. so obviously I had to play in a phone booth!

disney 064

Then we hit up France.

disney 066

And then China.

   disney 071  

And lots of other places in between. It’s so fun to just get lost walking around to all the different areas. I love Epcot.

After walking around for a while checking out the different scenery we hit up a few rides in Tomorrowland. We got one of the last Fast Passes for Soarin’ (which was awesome!) so we did that and some other low key rides. It was fun.

When dinnertime came we all wanted Mexican, but the only place there had no reservations available. Boo! We walked down a few countries and decided on some Chinese food. I got a chicken salad. It was very yummy.

After dinner it was dark out and we were all so tired! We watched a bit of the fireworks and then headed back to the hotel!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Wow! It has been a crazy long day. We have been up since 8 am running around like crazy people. Our little foursome did two of the Disney parks today! In this post, I’’ll share with you some of our Animal Kingdom experiences!

The day started off bright and early. We got up and were ready to catch our shuttle to the parks. I started off my day with some oatmeal and tea. Bringing this oatmeal for breakfast was one of the smartest things I packed. All you do is add some hot water, and you are good to go! It held me over for a while and I didn’t have to buy breakfast! Win!

disney 021

One short shuttle ride later and we were ready to hit the park! I tried to stay hydrated all day, so I was always drinking water! Walking around all day takes a lot out of you, and I still want to have a good race on Sunday, so I’m trying to take it somewhat easy.

Lots of water!

All the girls! Left to right – Me, Michele, Jen and Ashley

disney 057

I love the tree of life.

disney 023

Me and Michele – Best friends since kindergarten, both brides to be, and both each other’s maid of honor! Yay for best friends!

disney 024

The girls with Minnie Mouse! I love this picture!

disney 027

There are only a few main rides at Animal Kingdom. First we hit up Dinosaur. I love this ride. It’s always so fun, and I always get scared! I was holding on to Michele for dear life!

disney 038

We were all scared of the dinos! Such a funny picture!

disney 039

PS – How cute is this shirt? I kind of wanted it!

disney 040

And then we headed to Asia. We had our sights set on Everest!

disney 042

Yes I am that crazy girl that takes her camera everywhere – races, rollercoaster’s – It is always attached to my hand and ready to point and shoot at any moment’s notice! I love this picture of the ride on Expedition Everest. This was a fun ride!

disney 046

We had a blast!

disney 047

My favorite ride at Animal Kingdom would have to be the Safari ride.

disney 028

We got to see lots of animals. It was very entertaining.

***Side Note – Whoever can tell me what’s ‘funny’ with this picture first will get a present from me from Disney! It’s tricky! Leave a comment below***

After a few good rides we decided it was time for lunch. And since we are all on vacation we decided to have beers with our lunch! I enjoyed this Safari brew. It was delish!

And yes that is 22 ounces. You know how I roll.

disney 048

I snacked on some bars throughout the day and didn’t want to drop too much cash on lunch, so I ended up getting a bowl of jasmine rice with chili sauce. It hit the spot!

disney 050

Check out my fortune! I hope this will bring me good luck on Sunday!

Stay tuned for more on our journey to Epcot!!
