I just got home yesterday from our week long family vacation to Walt Disney World! But for now, I need to tell you more about Princess 1/2 marathon weekend! If you’re just now joining me, you can read the first three installments by clicking

If you remember from the end of Part 3, Cynthia and I split up from the group. While everyone else went to go ride Haunted Mansion, we headed to Tomorrowland. We got on the People Mover first. I love riding this! It’s relaxing and there are such nice views. Here’s some random video I took as we rode.
After our circle tour of Tomorrowland, we headed over to see the area where Dumbo and the Casey Jr Splash and Soak Station is in Fantasyland. After a bit of looking around there, we headed back to Tomorrowland to meet Shari for our FastPass+ for Buzz Lightyear.
I’d already forgotten all of the high point targets for this ride so my score wasn’t that great, but it was still fun trying to get a good score! Once we were done here, Cynthia and I went back towards Fantasyland while Shari and Maria either went to get a drink or maybe went to the smoking area. I don’t actually remember. What I do remember is that I convinced (or maybe the correct word is forced…) Cynthia to ride Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel. She didn’t really want to ride because there were mostly adults taking little kids on the ride but I told her it didn’t matter. We rode it despite having trouble climbing on and off of the carousel horses. I got a shot of an almost empty carousel as the previous riders exited and before they allowed us to get on.
Since we still had some time before our FastPass+ for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, I decided we should go watch Mickey’s Philharmagic. I love the songs they play during this show, but I caught myself dozing off while we sat in the theater for this one. I was more tired than I wanted to admit. Shari and Maria were there too but I went into the show before they met up with us so we didn’t sit together. After we exited the show, we found Shari and Maria and we all headed towards Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
Again, no pictures of BTMRR…but it was super fun! It seemed faster for some reason and there were a couple of times that I felt like I stood straight up during the dips down along the track! I love that ride!
We were feeling hungry so we decided to get lunch. I was going to have to leave the park soon so that I could go to the race expo and get my race packet. Pecos Bill’s was close by so we had lunch there. I ordered the pork barbeque sandwich with french fries. It was pretty good! It was a lot of food and I didn’t completely finish it all though. I always forget how big the portions are at Disney World. If I had been thinking I could have shared a meal with Cynthia. Oh well…
Once we were done with lunch, I was ready to head to the expo. Cynthia decided she would go with me. So we made our way back to Coronado Springs so that we could catch the race weekend transportation to ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
I’ll pick it up there next time!
See Ya Real Soon!
