Cool thanks!

I'm trying to figure out my lunch options before the expo. Does the ESPN place, where the expo is located, do they have any food/concession options?
TIA

There is a counter service place called ESPN Grill or something similar,it was open for the expo during Marathon weekend so I assume it will be for the TOT expo,but I can't tell you for sure.

Yep - and some pretty decent food, too! I had a nice turkey sandwich there once, and a yummy grilled cheese another time.

It was last year - I ate there during our expo visit.

I bought tix for DH and DD to attend the Villains Hollywood Bash. We are staying at a host hotel. They'll be able to use event transportation to get to the park, right?

You are going to LOVE your Disney cruise! We went on a 3-day Dream cruise in April and re-booked on board for the Fantasy. Don't try to do it all!

This is fun!

TOT Plans:
Friday: Pack and brief my parents on taking care of DD for the weekend.
Saturday: Attempt to PR at the Marine Corps 1/2 Marathon in Jax while DH takes DD to swim lessons. Immediately followed by a shower and nap in the car on the drive to Orlando. Hit up expo, lunch, and check-in to CBR. Never stayed at CBR so I'm really curious. Light dinner & slow 10-miler. Drink beer while I wait for DH to finish. Ride TOT until I puke!
Sunday: Sleep in. Hang out poolside at CBR (weather permitting). Hit up F&W at Epcot. Eat and drink around the world.
Monday: Wake up and hit the road for Jax. Work. Pick up DD from school.

Are you considering the (casual) Castaway Cay 5K? Will feel like nothing after the 10 miles.




Whoops! I have a question.

How do I get to the Expo from POR on the 4th? Are there buses? What's the timing of them? Would a cab be possible?

Hi
For all the newer runners what is your longest run/ walk? I have only done 7 miles not running the whole way. I am behind in my training.

My TOT plans:

Wednesday: fly into MCO on standby tickets. Really hoping I'll get on the first flight so we arrive at ASMo by noon. After lunch we plan on going to MK.
Thursday: MK opening and then Epcot
Friday: DHS and then to the expo
Saturday: AK then lunch at 11 and then back to resort to rest before the race.
Sunday: fly home and cry


Anyone see anything in my plans that I should be concerned about?

With the official training plan I'm not sure you are behind. Is that what you are following?

Though it occurs to me that I'm following the "to finish upright" plan so maybe the total newbie plan is different. But I was just coming in here to be proud of myself that I am back on the plan and did today's (well the plan calls for it tomorrow) 6 miles. That's as far as I have ever gone, and the last time I hit it I hurt myself and I've been resting my foot for a couple weeks.
