Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend, April 2017 - A Report
DisneyDan  Friday, May 19, 2017 2:31:39 PM
Hello everyone,

Last month (April 2017), Jon and I took part in our second runDisney weekend, the Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World. Followers of my blog will know that in February we participated in our very first ever runDisney event at the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Well, here we were, two months later, ready to do it all over again for the Empire!

I won't repeat everything I said in my first Princess blog about our impressions of runDisney, training, organisation of the event, impressions, etc, as many of those aspects were very similar this time, but needless to say, we were exceptionally proud of ourselves for being able to achieve not just one half marathon weekend, but now two in the space of two months!

As per the usual setup with the runDisney events, we went along on the Thursday before the race weekend to collect our bibs and merchandise at the health expo, at ESPN. The setup was virtually identical to the Princess Half expo, down to the bib collection areas, the vendor booths and show area, and the official race store.

Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast Dining Review, April 2017

Hello everyone,

A couple of weeks ago we dined at Trattoria al Forno at Disney's Boardwalk (Walt Disney World) to try the new Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast character dining experience. You do not need to enter the Boardwalk resort hotel in order to access the restaurant; it is located along the Boardwalk area itself, and not within the hotel.



For those who like to know these things, for planning purposes or whatever, we had a 7.45am reservation. Our reservation was on a Saturday, and it seemed to be fairly quiet at that time.

Disneyland Resort Photo Trip Report, April 2015 - including Springtime Roundup and much more!
DisneyDan  Monday, April 13, 2015 10:54:46 AM
Hello everyone,

At the start of April Jon and I spent nine full days in the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland Resort in California.

I'm going to break this report down into themed areas of the parks, as we did so much in nine days, it's actually easier to group things together to ensure I don't forget, or even repeat anything.

You should be warned that this report is very photo-heavy, so if you have a slow connection you may want to save it for later.

NEWS! Spider-Man to debut at Disneyland Paris in April!
DisneyDan  Saturday, March 22, 2014 12:13:03 PM
Hello everyone,

Today various French Disney fan sites are reporting rather conclusively that the long rumoured Spider-Man will finally start greeting fans at the Walt Disney Studios Park (at DLP) from Saturday 19th April! He will be located next to the Blockbuster Cafe in the Backlot.

Quite by chance, Jon and I will be there that day, and are really excited at the prospect of being among the first to meet him! We have no doubt that we will be at the park gates bright and early, and will go directly to his greeting location at park open!

Of course, we have previously met Spider-Man at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, FL, even since the Disney purchase of Marvel. We could argue that in that respect, we have met him, as he was technically Disney when we met him... But of course it's exciting nonetheless to be finally be able to meet him at a Disney Park!

This is, as always, subject to change, and who knows, perhaps he'll show up even before the 19th. Whichever way it works, we'll be there at the earliest opportunity to meet him!

Have a great weekend everyone,

Dan.

Below are some pictures of when we met Spider-Man at Universal's Islands of Adventure.
