An early morning tray because we needed to get our runners package at the ESPN World Wide of Sports for the Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5k we are running tomorrow.
Within 15 minutes we both had our bib and our special event pin and we moved on to the merchandise section. Danielle instantly found a new running jacket saying “Every mile is magic”. Afterwards we learned that it was from the new Run Disney collection.
With the first merchandise bought we went on to the expo to get our runners package. It was a bit confusing for us first timers but if you follow the crowd you’ll be at the right place at the end. With our transparent bag and a t-shirt we checkout the expo floor where numerous booths with running merchandise were selling their stuff. There were some really beautiful outfits available although most of it was designed for women. I ended up with a shirt with short sleeves from the Run Disney collection of this year and Danielle went for a full Disney style outfit for the race tomorrow. And before we left we got a free digital photo for usage on Social Media.
After we had seen everything we left and went for something to eat at a Firehouse Sub on the way to the Mall at Millenia. At the Mall at Millennia we browsed to some upscale stores without buying something, yes we can do that! After shopping we went back to our hotel to get something to drink, drop of the new clothes and get our vests.
So why would we need vests in Orlando? We had tickets for THOR: The Dark World, the newest Marvel movie which was released in theatre yesterday. We had our ticket reserved through the Fandango App for the AMC Downtown Disney 24, in the Auditorium 1. Never had a better sound experience. And the movie itself did exceed our expectations. In addition I was lucky enough to find a new better fitting and fully black colored running short at the new Fit2Run store.
After the movie we wanted to grab some sushi for take-out at the Kobe Japanese Steakhouse along the US192, but the wait was 35 minutes. That is way to long for take-out which make us drive to the Kobe nearer to our hotel. At 21:00 we were done eating and started preparing for tomorrow morning and finishing todays blog. And off course we went to bed early because tomorrow at 6:15 we need to be standing in our starting corral at Animal Kingdom for the start at 7:00!
