Jan 9, 2012 - Disney Marathon

Yesterday I ran a very long marathon. I know that they are all 26.2 miles long, but this one seemed longer. Sue and I drove to Disneyworld on Saturday afternoon for the Race Expo. We checked in to Disney's All Star Movies Resort and had some pasta in their cafeteria. It was early to bed for a 3:00 am wake up for me to catch an early bus to head to Epcot where the start was scheduled for 5:30. There were over 13,000 runners and it took over a half hour to funnel our way through a crowded walkway to the start area. The race started in waves...

Apr 12, 2011 - Magic Kingdom/Epcot

Wow what a day and we sure are tired. Spent the day surrounded by magic. We started off early this morning at Disney Magic Kingdom where we rode on the steam train, runaway railroad, did the Haunted House and then off to the Hall of Presidents, where beginning on July 4, 2009 Barrack Obama stood along side of the other 43 presidents there.

Apr 11, 2011 - Fort Wilderness Campground

This is our first full day here at Disney World's Fort Wilderness Campground. It is always a magical time of our lives to be at Disney World. The Mouse’s House. Today we decided not to do the parks since it will be record heat (around 95-degrees). This evening a cool front should come and bringing the temperatures back to normal in the 80s. So today we will do such things as taking a wonderful boat ride to and from the Magic Kingdom, we may take a dip in the pool, then we have reservations this evening at the "Boma". The Boma is a...

Apr 11, 2011 - Little Green Snake

This is way to funny not to post, but this morning when Tom went outside he saw a little green (garden) snake. A few minutes later he called me out to see it. I said wow he is really a bright green. I said lets take a picture of it for the journal. Tom said be very careful he may get frightened and leave. So I asked him to take the picture which he did. Then off to breakfast we went. When we were coming back Tom mentioned that our little green snake is probably long gone by now. To our surprise when we got back to the motorhome there it was...

Nov 6, 2009 - Disney's gift to me

Disney World made good on their promise to give a one day pass to one of their theme parks on my birthday. I spent 12 hours at Epcot and had a blast! They gave me a pin to wear that said "Happy Birthday Virginia", and because I wore the pin, cast members (employees) wished me a Happy Birthday all day long! It made me feel special and good, especially since I was by myself! Future World has 9 sections and I spent more than half my time there! I went on most of the rides and attractions. Inside the dome at the entrance is a ride that featured...
