Dopey Challenge Training -Week in Review

Another week of Dopey Challenge training is in the books and this week brought more success and consistency.  On tap this week was a true Dopey simulation run and a few easier runs on the weekend.  I'm super happy to get the first of three 20 milers on the training plan this week, as opposed to having to knock it out on Thanksgiving.

Monday: 5 miles

Tuesday: 7.1 miles

Wednesday: 10 miles

Thursday: 20 miles!!! (This first 20 miler went well.  I felt about as good as you can feel when running 20 miles).

Friday: 2 miles...which went about as well as you can expect having run 20 miles the day before.

Saturday: 5 miles

Sunday: 7 miles with Nicole.

The training will dial down slightly this upcoming week with a 5-7-10-15.  Still 15 miles on Thanksgiving gives you license to eat as much pie as you want!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Date Based Ticketing Coming to Walt Disney World

In a move that had been highly rumored for months, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida introduced date based ticketing today.  Here's what we know:
What is Date Based Ticketing? -Instead of paying one set price to enter any of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, your price will vary depending on when you go.  Busier times of year (think school breaks and the holidays) are more popular times of the year to go to WDW, so those tickets will be more expensive.  If you travel during a less crowded time of year, those tickets will be less expensive.  This is a system that has been in place at Disneyland Resort in California for single-day tickets for some time now.
Disneyland Resort already has date-based ticketing What about Multi-Day Tickets? -The date based ticketing will also apply to multi-day tickets.  So your three day park hopper ticket will vary in price depending on the time of year you travel.  You must also select the time-frame in which you plan to use your ticket when …

Storybook Character Dining to Debut at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

I'm so excited about today's update!  Character dining is coming to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This winter, Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen will welcome guests to dine with them at Artist Point. 
Information is limited at this time, but we do know that it will be a prix fixe menu with shared appetizers, a delicious entree and dessert.  We're still eagerly waiting for information on the opening date, menus, and how many dining plan credits this experience will require.  However, I immediately thought of my fellow Dopeys when this information was released.  How great would this be as a celebration meal after completing the Dopey Challenge?
What do you think? Are you excited for this option?

The Saratoga Palio Melanie Merola O'Donnell Memorial Half -Recap

On Sunday, September 16, Nicole and I, along with hundreds of other runners took to the streets of Saratoga Springs, New York to run the Saratoga Palio Melanie Merola O'Donnell Memorial Half Marathon.  It was a great way to spend a Sunday!  Both Nicole and I had a great experience with all aspects of this event.
Adding this race to our calendar was a last minute decision.  I have been wanting to do a fall half marathon before our planned Wine and Dine honeymoon trip.  With so many trips planned for this fall, it was hard to find a half that fit our schedule.  We also didn't want to travel to a race, since we'll be doing so much traveling already.  While in Saratoga last weekend, Nicole and I saw a sign for this race and figured since it's local, to check if there were still spots open. Lucky us! We were able to register on the Tuesday before the race. When you come from the world of runDisney, where you have to register months in advance, sometimes it's nice to jus…
