Princess Half Marathon 2018 *pre trip report*

In one month I will be back at Disney World yay Once again I am running Princess. I am running the 5K and the Fairy Tale Challenge ( 10K and Half marathon). I just love Princess weekend muchlove I am flying in on February 21 and staying at All Star Movies then moving to Animal Kingdom Lodge Feb 22-26. I have most of my plans made but I'm sure they will change multiple times before ( and during) the trip.

Here's what the current plan is:

Wedneday

Land around 10:30am and head to All Star Movies to check in. Shopping at Disney Springs. I currently have a dinner reservation at Trails End but I'm probably going to cancel and get pizza at the resort instead.

Thursday

Check out of All Star. Head to Epcot. I have fastpasses for Living with the Land, Character Spot and Test Track. Lunch reservation at Beaches and cream ( also might cancel). In the afternoon I'll head to the expo to pick up my race stuff and check out the merchandise. After the expo I'll head to AKL to check in and get some sleep for an early morning.

Friday

5K is at 5:30am. After the race I'll head back to shower and change and then head to Animal Kingdom. Fastpasses for Expedition Everest, Safari, and meet Mickey and Minnie. Another early night tonight.

Saturday

10K at 5:30am. Once again after the race I'll head back to change and shower. Then it's Magic Kingdom time! Fast pass for Big Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion and Space mountain. I have afternoon tea at 3:50pm with Joann and then metting up for pizza and a mini pool party with Kristen and company.

Sunday

Half at 5:30am. Last early morning awesome After the race it will be another Magic Kingdom day. Fast passes today are for Space Mountain, Peter Pan, and Mine Train. I have lunch booked at Be Our Guest (again, might cancel). I doubt I'll stay for any fireworks after all those early mornings, but we'll see.

Monday

Breakfast at Boma this morning (will NOT be cancelling this one laugh ). After breakfast, I'll finish packing and catch the Tragical Express sad

I'm trying really hard to save money so I plan on ordering groceries from Publix this trip. This is why I might cancel most of my ADR's laugh Although I love Publix so I may end up ordering more than I should laugh
