I live in Seattle & took my first trip to Dineyland as a baby. I finally made it to WDW for the first time in 1998 & Disneyland Paris in 2007. Finally, in 2012 I became a proud Disney Vacation Club member!

I just wanted to wish goofygal good luck running the inaugural Lumiere's Challenge at WDW this weekend. Oh, the memories I have of this race!!! Good luck and have fun Nancy, I'm thinking about you!
Good Luck ✨☘️✨☘️ - tracsant  1534.7 #3 6:05PM
Good luck Nancy!  - disneycm  768.5 #11 6:19PM
I finished the 10K! I ran a little slower pace so I'm sure to be good tomorrow but I'm very happy! It was easy! My training is really paying off. The humidity was pretty ridiculous though. Luckily it was cool out.  - goofygal  13378.6 #7 6:45AM
Yay. Congrats  - mmddgp  1572.5 #2 6:50AM

I have officially returned to the real world following my European adventure. It was not the trip I planned. At times it was good, while others completely disastrous. So, I am already thinking about my next trip back! #DLParisHalf #CastleToChateau #MedalTour
Can't wait to hear more about the rest of your trip 😀 - Andrea84  743.3 #12 8:54AM
Nice collage! Planning the next trip is always good.  - disneycm  768.5 #11 9:46AM
Glad you are home safe! Love the collage. Sorry things didn't work out as planned but sounds like you got to do a lot of great exploring! Would love to go there some day! - goofygal  13378.6 #7 6:59AM
Thanks Nancy. You know how it started, but that was only the beginning... - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 8:23AM

While it was a long 13.1 miles... The Inaugural Disneyland Paris half marathon was a blast! The CM support was awesome (those French CM's have ENERGY!) and there was great entertainment on the course. Most importantly, it was a great excuse to get back to Europe! 🇫🇷 🇮🇹 🇬🇧
It was fun, congratulations on your castle to chateau, that medal is awesome. Such a shame we didn't make contact. :( - rink2  310.8 #30 12:50PM
We start our week in London tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to exploring the UK! 🇬🇧 - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 1:17PM
Where are you headed? - rink2  310.8 #30 2:14PM
We will be based in London and have 3 days of tours outside of London including Leeds, Canterbury, Stonehenge, Windsor, Bath, Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon, and Warwick. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 12:26AM
Leeds? That's a long way north - by our standards anyway. It's not far from me. You are certainly getting around. You've chosen some beautiful places, full of history. Hope the weather picks up for you.  - rink2  310.8 #30 9:30AM
Those are some great tours! Stonehenge was closed for that foot and mouth when I visited, but I liked Warwick castle and Stratford and Oxford. My parents loved Bath - timonT  441.1 #21 1:23PM

Ah...the metric system! For someone accustomed to seeing mile markers, it was very interesting to see kilometer markers. This was seen at mile 13.0488! 😉
I was surprised to see all the km markers too - gave me a headache trying to work out how far to go!! Lol! - rink2  310.8 #30 12:52PM
At least you know how far a km is! LOL! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 1:23PM

Here is a photo from the starting line of yesterday's Inaugural Disneyland Paris half marathon. There were only 4 corrals (A-D). But, they divided each corral into very small groups to start. We didn't start until at least 7:45!
Cool!  - disneycm  768.5 #11 12:49PM
That's different. I am also surprised at the start time being so late.  - mzdisnee  574.2 #15 1:42PM
The French (and the Italians) don't do mornings! The theme parks don't even open until 10 am! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 1:27PM
Wow that is different. Hope you had a great time  - mmddgp  1572.5 #2 8:30PM
I must be more French than I realized- I don't do mornings either. (French is what I teach all day.) - teaching76  39.2 #0 2:03AM
I knew it: my parents must've adopted me from France, Italy, or Spain 😂 my husband's side of our family are all out the door by 6 am and in bed at 7:30-8. Everyone thinks I'm a weirdo  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  686.7 #331 6:31AM
That's an early start time for here! I'm guessing it was because they wanted to open the parks promptly   9am would be more typical.  - rink2  310.8 #30 9:24AM
We like our leisurely breakfasts ! - rink2  310.8 #30 9:25AM
I am part French so now I know why I'm a late morning person! 😂😂 - secretagentangel  9288.3 #11 4:21PM
Do you know how many runners? Was it as crowded as your other Disney races? - jacdanfan  14334.5 #5 9:45PM
I don't know how many runners there were, but it was comparable to other runDisney race weekends. There were a LOT of Americans as well as French and Brits. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 12:23AM
There were a lot going for that C to C medal. Do you think it will be as popular next year? I must admit there were less runners than I expected.  - rink2  310.8 #30 9:26AM
My guess is there will be fewer resources miners next year. I wouldn't expect many of the Americans who made the trip this year to make it again next year. But, some people f those who couldn't make the inaugural year may go next year! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 3:39AM
Wow that's interesting--did you like the smaller start groups?  Seems like that might help alleviate congestion.  Is that the hotel peeking through, under the arches?  What a great experience!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  686.7 #331 6:33AM
I didn't like the start set up - it seemed so slow. Once in the course which was very narrow in parts it made sense. That is the Disneyland Hotel in the background.  - rink2  310.8 #30 9:22AM
Thanks for the feedback.  I don't know if you've done a DL race or not, but it can get very congested since it's so narrow, and I'm guessing that this would be somewhat similar.  Luckily I've been placed in "B" corral at DL the last couple races--so that helps a lot, but I've always wondered what it would be like if they metered people at the start line a bit more.  It would be hard to wait though, I see what you mean.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  686.7 #331 4:01PM
I agree, it was a VERY SLOW start! But, it did help with congestion quite a bit. I was back in corral C and from asking around there was a BIG variety of paces in that group. But, I didn't find it to be a problem due to the staggered start. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #4 3:42AM

Here is the view of a busy Main Street from the train station. We were surprised to learn they have a small Grand Canyon diorama too! Clearly the French's view of Americans is rooted in the Wild West!

Halloween has arrived at Disneyland Paris! It made me feel better about missing WDW this Halloween season. I wonder how (or if) the French celebrate?
There is a Halloween party. Last time we went it was mainly adults, but I think they have made it more child friendly! - rink2  310.8 #30 2:05PM
