How To Make The Most Of A runDisney Expo

Today, I'd like to share with you how to navigate a typical runDisney Expo. The expos on each coast have some differences (location, order of pickup, placement of booths) but the process is very similar. When I went to my first runDisney Expo, I was in a great big hurry and the organization of the event made things go very smoothly! Every expo I've been to since has been exactly what you would expect from runDisney: organized, energetic, full of smiling volunteers.

Shopping at the House of Good Fortune in Epcot’s China Pavilion

Epcot's China Pavilion is one of the more beautiful locations around World Showcase, and it's also a hidden gem when it comes to great shopping.

When visiting the pavilion, we always stop and take time to explore the garden. The lotus pond in front of the temple is stocked with floating water lilies and other plants and fruit trees, and also features a small waterfall. The area was designed to create a mood of serenity and if you stand there long enough you might feel a sense of calm wash over you.
