- January 5, 2019 at 10:01 pm #99177
runDisney events are just waaaay to crowded for me. An hour just to spend money on a meaningful experience? No thank you
Did I really use to think this? Oh how a boy can change in year!
It sure does look rainy at the Studios! And PizzeRizzo!!!!!!
Those expo pics look great! I really liked most of those!!!!January 5, 2019 at 10:16 pm #99181
I have no clue how you used to think this!! But I’m so glad you’ve seen the light! So much rain at HS! Deep puddles and our shoes were soaked through within minutes! The expo was exciting and huge!January 5, 2019 at 10:25 pm #99184
I’ve seen the light! It’s just one of the things you’ve opened up to me and I’m so grateful for all you’ve taught me! Holy cow, that is a ton of rain! I can’t believe it, that bad?!?!January 5, 2019 at 10:43 pm #99187
I’m so glad I’ve helped you to see the light! You’re very welcome!!! It seriously was so much rain!!! It really was that bad!! Crowds were low though!January 6, 2019 at 3:24 pm #99283
I bet they were low, only the right kind of crazy people would put up with that much rain!January 6, 2019 at 10:10 pm #99302
Absolutely! Not many people were willing to have to swim on the streets in Hollywood Studios!!January 14, 2019 at 12:03 pm #100230
Ugh, the cold is bad enough, but I bet the rain made it pretty miserable!! I’m so glad Teri was ok after her accident!! Is she feeling better now? You guys really snagged some great stuff at the expo! Can anyone buy the Dopey merchandise or do you have to be running the Dopey Challenge in order to buy it?January 14, 2019 at 5:46 pm #100273
@laprana Yes, the rain PLUS cold made it miserable! I felt so horrible for Teri! Ryan was about to put me on a plane the day it happened so I could go see her! She is still dealing with some pain issues from the accident. But is doing a lot better than she was a year ago! We got so much great stuff! Anyone can enter the expo and purchase anything they want. Which does actually stink because EBay sellers will go in and buy a ton of merchandise just to resell it online later! I really wish you needed to show your bib to make purchases!February 22, 2019 at 10:39 pm #103222
They day at HS looks disgusting! but Gertie looks pretty cute!
I had no idea the Expo got that busy! I am SO glad I read this! I was thinking we could arrive Wednesday, as long as we had time to swing by the Expo. Now I’m thinking we would need to get there on Tuesday like y’all did.February 22, 2019 at 10:42 pm #103223
Didn’t finish reading the thread before I started commenting I’m glad Teri is doing better! I can tell y’all are sisters! that really sucks about flippers getting merch! I agree with you, I wish Disney would do more to combat flipping. Do you know if there are quantity limits at least? Can you post pics of your merch or have you done that already in a later thread?February 23, 2019 at 10:28 am #103241
HS was so cold and wet! Crowds were low though!
I definitely recommend arriving on Tuesday! Specifically because it’s winter and you can’t control the weather! If there any weather issues, you have a bit more wiggle room if you travel on Tuesday. Marathon Weekend Expo is more time consuming because there are more races and runners. We were there for like 7 hours! Keep in mind it was the 5th anniversary for Dopey and theMarathon’s 25th anniversary. So there were a lot more participants than usual. When we do Star Wars, we can do everything at the Expo and leave within a couple hours!
Teri is still dealing with the after effects from the accident but is doing much better! We totally look like sisters, don’t we?! I truly wish Disney would put limits on merch, but they don’t! I think the Dooney purses are the only item with 5 per person person style limit. All other items have no restrictions! So it’s very frustrating! I’m thankful we got everything we wanted though! By the time we left the expo, much of the Dopey merch was gone! I don’t think I posted pics of merch! I think it took pics! I will post them in this thread!February 23, 2019 at 10:40 am #103263
Here are pics of some of the Dopey Merchandise! They change the designs every year.February 23, 2019 at 10:45 am #103271
Here are the shirts we received included in our registration. The 5k is a unisex t-shirt. All others are long sleeve tech tops. The cool thing on the long sleeve shirts is that it has the park icon for each park we ran through for that race!February 23, 2019 at 10:46 am #103273
That makes me feel better about the Expo! That’s a good point, we will look at traveling on Tuesday instead. I’m learning a lot here already!February 23, 2019 at 10:49 am #103286
Thanks for sharing pics of the merch! That’s some neat stuff! I love the park icons on your tech shirts!
