Pre-Trip Report (or How I Spent Super Bowl Sunday)

While everyone’s watching the Super Bowl today, I’m working on videos for my YouTube channel. But I can’t even get them uploaded cuz there’s a weird electrical issue that began at about 3am this morning. Hopefully they get that fixed tomorrow.

In the meantime, how about I give you a little Pre-Trip Report action for my Princess Half Marathon weekend? I’m SOOOOOO excited because there are a few things going on during this short trip that are on my Disney Bucket List.

1. I’ll be staying at a Moderate Resort for the first time ever!
I have only ever stayed at the Disney Value resorts (with Pop Century being my favorite and my “go-to” choice the past several years). So I’m so excited that I’ll get to stay at Coronado Springs!

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort2. I’ll be having an early morning breakfast at The Crystal Palace.
Ok, that’s not really a Disney Bucket List thing for me because I don’t care much about eating at the table service places, but it’s one of the highlights of this trip!

3. I’m running my first runDisney half marathon!
Ummm, it’s going to be my first EVER half marathon, and though I fulfilled my bucket list item of participating in a runDinsey event when I did the Expedition Everest Challenge back in May 2014, this is a bigger deal to me because I never would have thought that I’d decide and train for a half marathon!

The fact that my family trip to Walt Disney World is less than a month after the Princess Half Marathon, has me even more giddy! I’ve never been to my Happy Place for 2 different trips so close together! I’ve got some surprises in store for that trip, but you’ll have to wait until after this race weekend to hear about any of that! And using my travel agent friends has proven such a great decision! If you want help planning your Disney vacation, definitely contact Don and Tina with World of Magic Travel by going to their Facebook page Destinations With Character. Click the page name to visit their page and get their contact info. They don’t charge you agent fees, and they can take care of everything, so it’s a no-brainer!

It’s time for me to watch some Super Bowl commercials…and Katy Perry’s half time show was awesome! 🙂

See Ya Real Soon!



  1. We are staying at that resort as well. How did you like it? Corando Spring resort. I hoped I spell it correctly

    • I thought Coronado Springs was beautiful! Considering that I usually stay at Pop Century which is not as spread out, I thought it was way too big. There are bus stops that take you around the resort to get you closer to whichever building your room is in. It was still a nice change!
