Day two involved traveling to the ESPN Wide World of Sports and exploring the expo! I had set up a budget prior to leaving Pennsylvania and I was determined to not go hog wild buying a lot of things.
The bus from the hotel did not immedately stop at the WWoS, so I knew I was going to have to bus hop. I teamed up with another woman, Vy from California, who was also going to the expo, to get on the right bus! We went to EPCOT, then Pop Century to the runDisney bus. We had great talks about other runDisney things and about what we do for our careers. Enjoying the sunshine, we made our way (finally!) to the expo!
We stuck together and agreed to do character pictures! I’m 27, and I’ve never done character pics before in my life.
While we were in line for Snow White, the cast member mentioned that Cinderella was arriving in about five minutes. What luck!!
Vy and I got our photos taken in front of the Children’s Miracle Network backdrop. I knew I wasn’t going to be taking a lot of pictures on teh course during the races, so it was the perfect time to go picture crazy!
Another highlight was purchasing one of the runDisney MagicBands (in pink, of course!). When I saw the preview on the runDisney Facebook group, I knew that I wanted one, so I budgeted for its purchase. I went to the woman at the booth and to my surprise, there were quite a few still left in both pink and blue. She had mentioned that the previous day, the Dooney and Bourke bags had sold like hotcakes. Only 2,000 were printed, and they were gone within hours. Who knew that something such as a handbag could be so coveted?
I do enjoy browsing about and taking pictures of all the things. I believe it helps to curb impulse spending.
I finished the browsing of the expo and headed back, ready to run like a princess!
