Last weekend Renée and Andrew made their way out to Disneyland for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, and of course some Disneyland fun on one of the hottest weekends of the year.
Here is our first of two (yes, count em' two) Disneyland updates we'll have this month. The next one in a few weeks.
Written by Renée Girard and Andrew Cunningham
We're at Disneyland this weekend to run. Or walk. Or crawl, depending on how we feel in this excessive heat.
"Shade? No bag line?..."
Halloween signage starting to appear at DCA. Can't wait to see their new additions this year!
If you're out enjoying the SoCal parks this weekend- make sure you stay hydrated!
I'm sorry, the old DCA can't come to the phone right now.
CAUSE IT'S DEAD.
Hydrating or carb loading?
Walt's message on a breadstick packet. Dreams come true.
Rise and shine! It's time for the RunDisney Disneyland10k!
Loving the Pixar theme this year. The 10k is Monster's U
Current line for the Disneyland metal detectors...
Jk! People as far as the eye can see at the #rundisney #Disneyland10k starting line
We're already sweating 😖
Not a terrible view to be dying to
Starting to get some daylight around #NotMyTower 😜
Backstage areas decorated to look like a college campus!
Sun coming up around Disneyland
Really enjoyed our ride on Pirates at Disneyland with the woman in front of us filming the whole thing on a tablet. Vertically.
Delicious dinner at Blue Bayou tonight with the Fantasmic dining package. Worth waiting extra time to get seated next to the water.
Blue Bayou package seating for Fantasmic gives an amazing view of the show. And wow, we were impressed with the new updates!
The addition of Pirates was one of the many highlights. Can the WDW version please finally ditch Pocahontas for something like this??
Another early morning with several thousand sweaty friends. Stay safe and hydrated!!
The finish line will be a welcome sight in a few hours.
Jeff Galloway is in my corral!
Time to start! And sweat!
Here's a rare sight, no line at Cove Bar!
Still a warm morning run on Main Street, but grateful for the early start and clouds.
The horses of Disneyland were out in the backstage areas.
Running through Angel Stadium is always a highlight of the DisneylandHalfMarathon
It was a hot one out there today. Hope everyone stayed safe and hydrated!
Pizza Planet delivery truck at the finish area.
Well, I finished. Not my fastest or best, but the course was enjoyable and it's become my favorite Labor Day weekend tradition. -Renée
After running, we feast!
Decorative Mickey leaves seems to be the new water art at Disneyland.
Epcot and Pirates 50th merchandise from D23 being sold at store on Main Street in Disneyland.
Halloween theming is starting to show up in Cars Land at DCA.
A closer look at the Pirates 50th shirts at Disneyland.
Star Tours 30th anniversary merchandise from D23 is available in Tomorrowland at Disneyland.
Just noticed that Tower of Terror is still on the Disneyland drink cups.
So as of 12:15pm, California Screamin has a 90 min standby wait. FP return time is 12:35. I don't understand.
Wait time for California Screamin dropped to 45 minutes now but I'm about to board and can already get another FP.
Cove Bar, is it worth the hype? I've never been but every time I visit DCA, there's a huge line.
The new FP system at Disneyland seems really inefficient. Radiator Springs Racers return FP line wrapped all the way around the building!
Had a wonderful visit Disneyland resort this weekend for the runDisney marathon! Might just be making a trip for Halloween soon!
