Happy National Pet Day Pluto!

In honor of both the start of the Year of the Dog and National Pet Day, I thought I'd focus this post on Mickey's beloved pal, Pluto.  Yes, Pluto and Goofy are both dogs, however Pluto is the more pet-like of the two.

You can meet Pluto in all 4 Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

Magic Kingdom
At Magic Kingdom, Pluto has his meet and greet right on Main Street U.S.A. in the Town Square.  The times of his meet and greet vary, but today he is meeting from 12:10PM to 2:35PM.  You can also see Pluto in the daily Festival of Fantasy parade.
Epcot
While many of the classic Disney characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy) meet at the Epcot Character Spot in Future World, Pluto actually meets in World Showcase.  He meets at the World Showcase Friendship Ambassador Gazebo which is located on the lagoon between the Mexico and Canada pavilions.  Again, his meet and greet times vary.  Today his is meeting from 11:30AM-2:30PM and again from 3:10PM -6:30PM so you have plenty of opportunities to meet this pup!
Disney's Hollywood Studios
Looking miserable running through Disney's Hollywood Studios during the Marathon (I have no pictures of the park lol)
At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Pluto meets all day (from 9:30AM-6:30PM currently) in Animation Courtyard.  For those that don't know where this is, its the path from Sunset Boulevard (where Rock N Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror are) as you make your way to Pixar Place (where Toy Story Mania is currently located).  Since Disney's Hollywood Studios is under so much construction right now, this location is subject to change.  Check your My Disney Experience App for the most updated information.
Disney's Animal Kingdom
Nicole and I in front of the Tree of Life
At Disney's Animal Kingdom, Pluto meets with Goofy (because they're both dogs, I guess) in Dinoland U.S.A.  He's there most of the day, currently meeting from 11:30AM-2:30PM and 2:40PM-5:30PM.
After the Jingle Jungle 5K in 2015
You can also meet Pluto at various character meals: Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort, O'Hana at Disney's Polynesian Resort (breakfast), Garden Grill (Epcot's Land pavilion) and Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Where is your favorite place to meet Mickey's favorite pup?

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 …

My Favorite Race in 2017

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!  For this week's Tuesdays On the Run, the topic is "favorite race of 2017"  I have to admit, I was having a hard time choosing which was the best.  2017 was a fantastic racing year for me.  I set new PRs and even earned my coast to coast medal!  However, my favorite race of the year was the 2017 Cedar Point Half Marathon.

The Cedar Point Half Marathon is part of the Run and Ride Race Series which features races all around the country ranging from 1 mile fun runs to half marathons at some of the best theme parks out there!

This past June, Nicole and I both participated in the run and ride weekend at Cedar Point.  Nicole ran the quarter marathon and I ran the half marathon.  The main reason this was my favorite race of the year was this happened:
Yup, I broke the tape!
I still can't believe this was a thing that happened!  I had so much fun running through the park and then the streets of Sandusky, OH.  This is my proudest racing moment …
