Day 4: EPCOT

For our final day at Disney World this past August, we spent a half day at EPCOT. Luckily, we were able to book our fast passes back to back, which enabled us to go from ride to ride without any difficulty.

We woke up bright and early and had a breakfast of leftover pastries in our room!

It was all delicious, even on day 2!

After breakfast, we dropped our luggage off at baggage claim, then hopped a bus to Epcot. Magical Express was set to pick us up around 1:30 p.m., so we had plans to stay at Epcot until around noon.

We visited the Spaceship Earth first, followed by The Seas with Nemo and Friends. After a little Journey Into Imagination with Figment, we decided to visit the DVC lounge at the top of the Imagination Pavilion. We still had a good 45 minutes before it was time for our next fast pass (at Frozen), so we decided this was the best way to pass a little time!

It was definitely a nice way to recharge our devices and get out of the summer Florida heat, too!

While there, a cast member came around with a cart to deliver snacks. This has been hit or miss for us in the past, but it was nice to have this time around!

After cooling off for a bit, we stopped for a quick potty break where Brayden had his first "wall" photo taken! I definitely giggled at this a bit!

Frozen had been down, but it was reopening just as we walked up! Another bonus: this meant zero line for us!!

Brayden loved this ride, too because he loves Olaf!

Before leaving the park, we decided to stop for a snack of a cronut! These are currently available at the Electric Umbrella but I'm not sure for how long!

Also for anyone who's curious, this was our first Disney trip to travel with our Summer Infant 3Dlite + stroller and we LOVED it! It's basically a heavy duty umbrella stroller with all the perks. I seriously recommend this one!

Although we were sad to say goodbye, it was time to leave Epcot and make our way back to Old Key West for Magical Express! We did have a small bit of a wait for our resort bus which left us wishing we had taken a Lyft, but we made it without any problem.

Thankfully, we had about a 10 minute wait for Magical Express which gave us just enough time to snag our luggage! While Jason was off doing that, Brayden and I did a little exploring, where we discovered a color table! Fun times!

...and with that, our magical, quick, extended weekend trip had come to a close! We loved being able to visit and spend time with just our little family. It was such a special time for all three of us!

Oh yes, and last quick note - these are delicious...and by delicious, I mean freaking good! Needless to say, the bag didn't last long at my house!

Thanks so much for following along! Our next magical adventure will be just ahead! We are visiting Walt Disney World for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon, boarding the Disney Dream for a 4 night cruise, then returning to Walt Disney World for the very first Christmas party of 2019! As an added bonus, we get to do all of that with our friends! I'm SO excited and cannot wait!

Have a magical day!

Wine & Dine Half Marathon Costume Reveal

Happy Halloween! What better way to celebrate than with a little runDisney costume reveal?

The ideas for my Wine & Dine Half Marathon costume have been absolutely all over the place. Since I'm traveling with a group of friends for this trip, our original plan was to run as different characters from Toy Story. Well, that idea got scrapped a while back and after a lot of deliberation in my own head, I finally decided what I wanted to do.

This costume has been sitting in my closet for a while...actually, a long while. You see, about 6 years ago, Jason and I were invited to a Disney themed 16 year old's birthday party with the catch that everyone who came had to dress in costume. So, Jason and I did just that...and our outfits were a huge hit!

I'm still not quite sure how I convinced him to dress up as a Wildcat from High School Musical, but he agreed!

So, with the reboot of an all new High School Musical on the upcoming brand new Disney+, I thought it was due time to pull that old costume out of the closet and finally wear it to a runDisney event. I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before!

Although this costume took a little bit of tweaking from its previous state, and I look a hot mess because I currently have pink eye (seriously), here it is!

As you can see, the inspiration for this one came from the cheerleaders in the middle of this shot.

I used all runner-friendly material for this costume:
  • Shirt: BCG Brand from Academy
  • Skirt: SparkleSkirts.com
  • Jacket: Adidas from Academy
  • Headband: Red Sparkle Sweaty Bands
  • Earrings: Red Paw Logo from Amazon

The EHS letters were cut from the Silhouette machine on red heat press vinyl and the red/white stripes are pieces of ribbon that were heat pressed onto the shirt. The wildcat logo was printed onto a heat press sheet, pressed onto an old piece of white t-shirt material, then hand stitched onto the jacket (so it's not permanent).

This should be a fun (and hopefully less rainy) Wine & Dine Half from the last one I ran (can anyone say splash & dash?). If you see me out there, don't hesitate to say hello!!

If you're running this weekend, I wish you the best of luck! Happy running!!
