Walt Disney World day 1

Wow! I am so behind on this blog. I haven't even recapped my trip to Walt Disney World in November! This blog will cover the first day.

I was so excited to get my Coast to Coast medal by completing the Wine and Dine Half Marathon! I worked hard and although I could have done better, I feel like I was as ready as I was going to be.

I had been watching the weather and it was supposed to be HOT! I was glad that the race was at night. 

We took a red eye and arrived the day before the race. We got to the expo as it opened and I made a beeline for the expo merchandise. I didn't see anything I must have so we stood in the very long line to get my sons ears and then headed to the parks. 

Our first park was Disney Hollywood Studios. My little Mouseketeer loved the Great Movie Ride!  We ate lunch and let my son run around on the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids playground to burn some energy. 

We then headed to Epcot for dinner at Via Napoli (carb loading is yummy!). My son has multiple food allergies and once again Disney came through with awesome food. The small dish below is gluten, egg, dairy and peanut free pasta. 

Epcot is my favorite place in the world and I was so excited to be there with my son! 

We had an early night since we had gotten no sleep the night before and I had a race the next day. We had a great first day though!

Up next, day 2!


  1. Disney chefs - whether from Disney restaurants or third party restaurants on the resort - are all awesome! We have had a successful allergy-friendly meal at Via Napoli, as well, and can't wait to go back. Looking forward to seeing what Day 2 was like for you!!

  2. I agree! Disney Chefs are the best!
