Disney runs are the best! I agree once you get going, seeing all the sights and the wonderful CM's & volunteers cheering you on all the nerves will disappear!
Dont be nervous, I'm sure you will do great! Just make sure your properly hydrated and wear very light clothing as its going to be hot but looks like the humidity will be ok and around 46% which was a lot better than the last two previous years. just make sure you run 3 days before at least 3-4 miles then take it easy until sat - Dave 10978.8 #2 8-20-14 12:02PMLike(1)Reply
Yay! You will do great! My first race was last year's half marathon, and I was really nervous, but I relaxed once I got going. There's so much to look at and everyone is so positive and energetic, I almost forgot we were running! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 517.3 #338 8-19-14 7:28AMLikeReply

My birthday is Sept 4th! I had planned to spend it in the parks, sadly an office move has come between Mickey & I celebrating 😩. First time in 4 years I didn't get to spend my special day in my special place.
Have to say a solo Dland trip is on my bucket list lol!!!!
Going solo is a lot of fun. I do it and love that I can do what I want, when I want and how I want. Just relax, take in all the sights,sounds and smell. You will be surprised what a great day it will turn out to be!! - WhatTiggersDoBest 247.7 #1237 8-18-14 3:27PMLike(5)Reply
Honestly, I think those looks are all in your mind! Go, have fun, and don't worry about any looks. - MeridaFanHasNoAP 3247.5 #27 8-18-14 8:05PMLike(3)Reply
Hi and welcome! I always have the same advice: get there early, skip breakfast until later. You can ride major attractions and get fast passes while everybody else is eating and window shopping. Then you can eat and use your fast passes and enjoy your day without standing in line the entire time. Have fun! - ShariRenee 3862.1 #23 8-18-14 2:43PMLike(2)Reply
Welcome! And my first advice would actually be to soak the magic in. Let it consume you and just have fun. Sometimes we plan the trip so much that we forget to just enjoy the magic - EnchantedTiki 7.1 #11361 8-18-14 8:56PMLike(2)Reply
Welcome. Take your time and enjoy everything you do. Have fun. - truk78 6.2 #12683 8-18-14 9:01PMLikeReply
Get to the gate an hour before stated opening time! This is good advise no matter where you stay. But if you stay at a Disney hotel you will get early admission to one or the other park daily anyway. Use those early hours! - DeneciePie 298.8 #798 8-18-14 9:05PMLikeReply
Lol I know everyone brags about it, BUT does it live up to the hype? YES YES a million times yes!!!!! I have to admit the $16 price detoured me a few times cause that's like 4.5 churros lol, but SO yummy! Next fried pickles & More...

What a neat necklace! Thanks for sharing! Please add me 😍
Thank you for doing this. I have a port a cath in my neck for infusion and had a near choking with a lanyard and a patient years ago. I just do not wear necklaces anymore. It is very cute. - Plumiegirl 7728.9 #3 8-10-14 9:49AMLike(7)Reply
I just want to say what awesome work you do! The quality of your jewelry really is unparalleled. Your love of Disney and your artistic talent is so obvious in every piece you design. Thank you for being you and for being a part of MW! 😘 - MeridaFanHasNoAP 3247.5 #27 8-10-14 10:13AMLike(5)Reply
I have experienced some of that as well, however, there are quite a few friendly MW'ers that are always helpfu
If your post gets pushed down by other posts, just bump it yourself by adding a short comment. 'Can anyone answer this, please ' would work. Sometimes posts don't get seen. Sometimes people don't have the answer. Sometimes an answer might be found by reading other posts in the lounge. You're right that people have becomes friends and friendly on here. It would be a pretty boring place otherwise. I do understand how it might feel cliquey to a newcomer. But for those who want to feel a part of things, the answer is to jump in and become a part of the community. There are folks on MW from all over the world. I can think of at least two MWers from Australia who have managed to make themselves part of the fun here. They certainly aren't in the parks all the time. Far from it. If you enjoy a picture that someone has posted, please tell them so. You can also show appreciation my 'thanking' quality posts. By not thanking or commenting on other posts, they will get pushed down. How this helps! - MeridaFanHasNoAP 3247.5 #27 8-9-14 6:43PMLike(11)Reply
I don't think people are intentionally ignoring questions, but I do understand what you mean. I don't post much anymore because I noticed that even when I was in the parks, by the time my pics would load, it would be waaay down the page, due to flooding of pics in the lounge. I definitely don't think people were ignoring my pics/posts. It's just impossible to keep them bumped with the high volume of pics posted daily by people there every day. - RCmom 5020.6 #15 8-9-14 7:14PMLike(6)Reply
I always try to answer questions if I know the answer. I'm in the Phoenix area and am not in the park that often. I would say that posts do get pushed down often and if nobody comments on it, they will never see it. If you post late at night and then 100 people post after it, the question might get pushed down. Same thing could happen if it's in the morning. I don't think anybody purposely would not answer. They also might have been afraid if they said nope crowds have been light that the next day they would be overflowing. Crowds can vary and they might have been afraid to give the wrong answer. Or they were in the park and never saw the question. Don't give up on asking questions. - warchanted 119.3 #3031 8-13-14 7:03PMLikeReply
The Halloween Season at the parks has really gotten better with every passing year...a suggestion...if you would like to attend one of the Private Halloween Parties, buy your tix as soon as possible...this event has become very popular and dates sell out way in advance...they are really fun to attend :-) - uscdisneyteacher 7112.5 #5 8-1-14 8:31PMLike(1)Reply
As a RunDisney participant, we really appreciate all the volunteers! Most may not know how much that smile and "good job" and "keep going, you got this" means!!! You all rock!!!!!!

Sending good thoughts your way. Condolences for your loss
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. It's hard to lose a grandparent. I don't have any living grandparents and I think about them all the time. I miss them all very much. I try to remember all the good times and tell my kids about them often. - minniemonika 72.0 #0 4-28-14 12:01PMLikeReply
Would you be willing to smuggle it back in you suitcase?! I miss it😞 - Bassplayerswife 135.8 #2768 4-20-14 11:22PMLikeReply

You had the Mickey ears surgically attached?!? BRILLIANT! 😂 In all seriousness though, I am glad to see you're ok. Sending pixie dust for a speedy recovery! *hugs* - SPandEvLover 2723.7 #34 4-11-14 2:28PMLike(10)Reply
The DLRR station! I love hearing the announcement.. sounds old timey. I also love the Rivers of America! Especially before watching Fantasmic! :) - MusicallySoundsational 111.6 #3175 4-9-14 4:50PMLike(1)Reply
Nightmare's neighing and the sound of Cast Members saying "Hi Matt" as I walk around my locations even as a guest proving we really are all a big family. - CM_Shadowgamer 2317.2 #46 4-11-14 6:21PMLikeReply

Hope you have a fantastic birthday 🎉🎁🎂! Please add me for the Barker Bird sticker! I actually have 2 parrots (Foster & Calypso) so that would be super awesome! Thanks for thinking of others on your special day!
I would suggest...a pic in front of the castle (that's a given), dining inside The Blue Bayou, watching the fireworks (I get ready EVERY single time) & the cheapest memory is what I call "sights & smells of Main Street" (FREE and somethin More...
Ok...this will take awhile...get comfortable. :-)But seriously, make sure they get multi-day Park Hoppers as there is so much to do and see. They do not hsve to come consecutive days as the ticket as good for up to 13 days after first use. - MickeyLumboCM 563.3 #299 3-20-14 5:36PMLikeReply
Ok, we did this before and I know Skechers won, but what type of Skechers? I know they came in wide. I'm just going to add my own glitter and have @Tinkerschelle put some lights on them. I need to know though since I need a pair. Anyone remember? - MrsSchnooks 2666.4 #36 3-18-14 12:34PMLike(2)Reply
Have you ever brought "finished" pictures like this back with you to the park to ask the CM if they want a copy?..... I love candid photos and they are the only ones of I ever keep of myself. I bet she would like to be able to keep this shot; frame it, add it to her portfolio; give a copy to mom for the fridge? - georgieporgie 180.2 #2099 3-17-14 12:18PMLikeReply
I want to be the one that makes everyone's first impression of Disneyland exceed all their expectations! Every time I walk into Dland I get the same feeling as if it were 25 years ago when I first entered the parks.
A dancer in the parades! I've wanted this job for years, ever since my dance teacher told us about her experience as a choreographer for the parades. I'm actually working really hard right now (dance classes, good grades-- i want to go into computer programming) to go to college in California so I can do DCP😄Dream big!!! - princessvg 40.4 #4627 3-16-14 9:34AMLike(2)Reply

Definitely!! Especially since we were there the day before AP previews started, couldn't go Thursday because of work, and are blocked out until Monday. - GotMouse_aka_JRoseAllister 87.5 #3519 3-14-14 12:58PMLikeReply

There's PLENTY to do in Disneyland to fill up a day 😍😍😍
If it's your first time to DL, then I would get just DL. if you've been to DL before, then a park hopper is a good value. And it's nice to change it up a bit and get some variety. Just my $.02. - antetr95 1620.9 #77 3-11-14 2:26PMLikeReply
when it gets warmer there are more meetups, maybe we can schedule some small ones before big ones. a few people who get scared before their first reunion will either go to the attraction takeover the night before, or post they want to meet before the larger event with any other shy or nervous peeps. strangers are only friends you have yet to meet!:D - secretagentangel 1235.4 #101 3-4-14 4:54PMLikeReply
