Star Wars Dark Side 2016 Rememered (Friday Five Edition)

So I am down at Disney World this weekend enjoying my time and running a few races.  This is the second year that I've done this.  Here are some highlights from last years race.  And remember to follow me on Instagram and Twitter throughout the weekend!

1. Port Orleans Riverside - This was the first time I stayed here.  I've stayed at the French Quarter, which is part of the same hotel, but both have a different theme and feel.  I enjoy both very much and are a go to for my stays at Disney World.

2. iPhone Case - The last few times that I've done a race at Disney World, you can get a specialized case for your phone about the race.  This was not different.

3. Hollywood Studios - Till Star Wars Land is complete, the place to go for Star Wars fans is Hollywood Studios.  I was able to see Chewie and Kylo Ren.  There are also shows and rides that are themed to Star Wars.

4. Fun Character Photos - Before and after the race there were set up some fun character photos.  Most of the lines were very long, so you would need to get there very early or not be worried about getting to your corral late.  But it was something fun to do while we waited.

5. One of the Coolest Medals Ever - I do love the Millennium Falcon medal so much!

I'm linking up with Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy for Friday Five 2.0


  1. Great pics and cool medals! Disney really does a good job with their medals! We have stayed at both the Riverside and Port Orleans and they are both great resorts that have a different feel to them like you said. I am not sure which one I like the best. But it is Disney, so you can't go wrong!

  2. Have an Awesome race this weekend!!
