A Short Weekly Update (Weekly Wrap-up Edition)

This week I spent most of my time in Disneyland participating in the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend. Here are a few highlights. Full recaps will come in the next few weeks.

First it has been a real fun trip. I'm here with my friend Kelly who I happened to meet here three years ago during Tinkerbell weekend. For the first time I am staying at the Disneyland Hotel and I have to say that it has been very convenient.

The races have been a lot of fun. The 10k was the hardest of the three as I was so tired that everything and everyone irritated me. The half was just as much fun as I remember. 

We went to the Disneyland Park one day. It's been awhile back since I've been to that park as I have gone to California Adventure land last couple times I have been here. We also ate at some great restaurants.  

The Star Wars infused weekend has been a blast for this Star Wars fan. It's great to be around so many fans and characters. I really cannot wait for Star Wars Land to open (picture of the Star Wars land construction). 

Tomorrow I am heading to Universal Studios. I am excited to see the new Harry Potter section. Hopefully I'll get some of the recap posts going quickly as I cannot wait to share this weekend with everyone.

Linking up with Holly and Tricia's Weekly Wrap Up.


  1. Sounds like an awesome weekend! Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. I wish we had more time to spend in California when we went out for Tinkerbell a few years ago. I'm glad you are liking the DL Hotel and everything you've done so far. Can't wait to hear all about Universal Studios (and your races)!

  3. Being in the southeast and fairly close to Disney World, I've never been to Disneyland. I may be able to convince my husband and kids once Star Wars Land is finished though! I know you enjoyed those races. I can't wait to hear the details. I love the pic with Chewie! Thanks for linking, Heather!

  4. So glad you've had a fun time! I've never stayed at the DL hotel but would love to in the future!

  5. I know for sure the next time I go to Disneyland, I want to go to Harry Potter World too.

  6. Congrats on your races! Sounds like a fun weekend! I can't wait until Star Wars Land opens!

  7. I did the Star Wars half too! I live in Florida so I'm super excited for Star Wars land to open here. Next time I go to California I want to actually visit the parks though- I didn't have much time to do that because I was working. Oh and next time I do a race in Disneyland I'll remember to bring money for snacks! I didn't know everything in downtown Disney opened so early here! At the one in Orlando, there's nothing on the way to the start line so you don't need anything other than what you carry on the race course!
