Guest Blogger, Rebecca: One Month Until the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend!

Hi Friends!

The Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is right around the corner! To those who have trained all spring and summer for your big race/s, I’m thinking of you and look forward to following along! I’ve asked my lifelong friend and runDisney sister, Rebecca, to be my guest blogger for today. She and her husband, Jake, will be running the Disneyland 10K! Here to tell her story is Rebecca:

Hi friends!

I can’t believe it’s the end of July. The back-to-school ads are in full force, and some home decorating stores are already selling autumn/halloween decorations. Geez! We still have a solid month until Labor Day! To fellow runDisney enthusiasts out training for their upcoming runDisney races, stay cool and enjoy the last few weeks of summer.

The Walt Disney World Resort is celebrating their 45th anniversary (2016, but you know Disney, they love to extend celebrations for over a year!) by providing Annual Passholders with a special summer dining discount: from now until September 30, you can receive a 30% discount on dinner either before 6:00 p.m. or after 8:30 p.m. at participating locations*. The standard dining discount for Annual Passholders is 20%, so you will save an additional 10% with this deal! This is a great opportunity to experience some of Disney’s finest dining establishments as a treat to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of the fall season.

Hey everyone!

Summer is really flying by! To put it in perspective, the Walt Disney World Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties begin next month. WOW! I’m certainly not complaining because autumn is my favorite season. But not to fear, there is still plenty of summer left!
