What to Pack for a RunDisney Racecation Weekend

One of the best parts about running is that there are so many different places to go! A destination race will surely get me up off the couch and training because it’s a lot more fun to run somewhere new than the same ole route I do each week. Because a destination race requires a few days of time, before you know it, it’s become a full blown racecation.

What is a racecation? It’s a trip that’s part destination race, part vacation. To me, a RunDisney race weekend has been the ultimate in racecations. In just over a week I’ll be embarking on mine and I’ve been thinking about what to pack for months. I ordered my first Disney themed shirt just days after signing up for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon and I can hardly believe the day is almost here! I’m so excited, I might start packing tonight.

Toddler-Friendly Attractions at Disneyland Paris

Most people are familiar with Disneyland or Walt Disney World, as there are parks in many countries around the world such as Japan, Hong Kong, France, and of course the United States. As residents of France, we chose to visit Disneyland Paris. They feature two main parks, Disneyland and Walt Disney Studio. We chose to only visit Disneyland, as it would be a good choice for our little girl.

Flashback Friday: Disney Dreaming

It’s happened. It’s finally happened.

I have four, that’s right, F O U R, days of school left before I’m officially on summer break! (Bless you, Memorial Day Weekend) That just makes me as happy as a clam. Tonight, we are headed home for my younger brother’s high school graduation. It’s also my husband’s cousin’s graduation from the same school. It’s sure to be a treat, and of course, gets me all nostalgic about my own time in high school (10 years ago, say what?!). When I was a senior, we had a senior trip to my favorite place ever (Walt Disney World, duh), and since my hubs and I have a trip coming up this year, I’ve really got Disney on the brain lately.

Today, I thought, I’d take a stroll down memory lane and relive some fun times in the Disney parks. Please fasten your seatbelt and make sure your arms stay in the ride at all times.

2015: Most recently, I was so blessed to go to Japan in 2015 to visit my cousin. Before heading back to the city she lived in, we stayed in Tokyo a few days. We visited Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea and I loved every minute of it! These parks have all your favorite rides — Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, and my favorite, Space Mountain (plus many, many more). It was so interesting to experience these rides I’ve loved for years with a little twist and a lot of Japanese narration.

Tokyo DisneySea reminded me a lot of Hollywood Studios in WDW. It even has the Tower of Terror, although it’s not the Hollywood Tower of Terror and the storyline is completely different. My favorite part of the park was Mermaid Lagoon. Isn’t it beautiful?

 2013: In 2013, I went back to Walt Disney World for the third time. I am lucky to have a best friend who has been literally like 15 times and has dragged me along twice. I mean, she really had to twist my arm, y’all. Just kidding.

We stayed at the beautiful Boardwalk Resort and loved having JellyRolls within walking distance. A dueling piano bar?! Yes, please! Going to Disney as an adult definitely has its perks. I keep telling my husband this, but I’m not sure he believes me. 🙂 On this trip, I took complete advantage of the dining plan and had dessert with every meal. We added the dining plan to our trip in November and the glutton in me can’t wait.

2007: Myself and eight friends visited in April our senior year of high school to celebrate our impending graduation/the fact that we were done with standardized testing while the rest of our peers stayed back in Texas to take four days worth of tests. When I sat down to write this, I went hunting on Facebook for the pictures from that trip… But remembered I took them down when I graduated college and started trying to find a job. 😀

Just imagine nine teenagers at the Pop Century Resort with Extra Magic Hours in an off season. Our chaperones met us at 9:30 each morning to pass out our cash for the day, but other than that we were pretty much on our own. We also spent a few days at Universal Studios where we were even less supervised. Looking back as an adult, this was a terrible idea and probably why senior trip is no more. But it sure was a lot of fun! 😉

2001: My first trip! I attended with aforementioned friend and her family and I instantly fell in love with the parks. I think I was probably terrified to leave my mom, as it was really only about the second time I’d ever even left Texas and maybe the third time I’d been away from her for more than a couple of days. I remember running through O’Hare because we thought we might miss our connection. At that time I thought, “Is this even worth it?!” But as soon as we arrived at the Beach Club, I knew it was. 🙂

Next trip, 2017: …For the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend later this year! I am ecstatic and have loved every step of the planning process. This will actually be my husband’s first time visiting as an adult and it’s my first time planning the trip myself.

All of you veterans, if you have any tricks of the trade, I’d love to hear them! Happy Friday, y’all! Enjoy your holiday weekend!

Today, I’m linking up these five years of memories for Five on Friday!
