We all felt amazing after finishing – everyone was so happy and proud of what they had done. Beth had an amazing day – she wasn’t even sure she was going to start the marathon and, in the end, she finished it and finished it strong! And – we were smart enough to have a couple of extra days to spend at WDW after the races to enjoy.
Sunday after the marathon – we had late lunch plans at Raglan Road (2pm ressies). Gil, Jared, and Jason joined us and we had a wonderful time.
Then we wandered around Downtown Disney – they were having an “after-party” which consisted for us of pictures with the race banners, a free cupcake, and a few discounts.
I also started my post-marathon eating frenzy with a Ghirardelli chocolate ice cream cone – delicious. It wasn’t quite as big as it looks in this picture
We finished up the night by going to Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Towers to have a drink and watch Wishes.
Monday started with a nice breakfast in our villa of cheesy eggs and bacon and then a day at Epcot – fastpass to Soarin’, Living with the Land (one of my favorite rides), a Mickey pretzel, pictures with characters and then some drinking around the world.
It started pouring – so we had to huddle in the German pavilion with some caramel corn and wine – tough life! I had to head back for a video interview, so we ran through the rain back to our car. It had rained so hard, that we had to wade through ankle deep water at Mexico!
Dinner that night was at Jiko – one of our favorite restaurants. It was amazing as always.
Tuesday was our last day there. We headed to the Magic Kingdom so I could finally get the food item I had been planning on for months: nutella and fruit waffles from Sleepy Hollow refreshments! Yum – it lived up to my expectations.
We did a bunch of rides in the Magic Kingdom and met up with other DVC friends (Nick, Barbie, Kandi and John). Then it was time to head home…but I had one last treat before we headed out:
A wonderful trip to the World again – just adding to the many happy memories we have.
