RUNCATIONS WITH THE WHOLE GANG
One of the best things about runDisney "runcations" is that there is something for everyone in your family. With all of the different races to choose from, plus the Disney Parks and Resort areas, the only problem you'll face is how to fit everything in that you want to do!
For the 2010 Princess Half Marathon, I came with my family and extended family. We had kids in the Kids Races, family members in the Royal Family 5K, and seven of us doing the Princess Half Marathon. Even my 80 year-old grandmother got into the spirit by joining the ChEAR Squad. It was a great weekend!
When you travel with a party this large, it's not easy to stay together the entire time. That's why I usually recommend making one dining reservation per day for everyone to gather and eat. I try to make ours close to parade, fireworks, or stage show times so we can follow our meal up with a big event. This way, everyone can do what they want to do during the day. Because, let's face it, my boys love hanging out with their girl cousins, but that does not mean they want to ride the Prince Charming Regal Carousel with them!
Some other ideas for large parties:
- Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage
- Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
- Mickey's Backyard BBQ
- Chip 'N Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long
- Disney's Family Magic Tour
- Catch an Atlanta Braves in a Spring Training game at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
- La Nouba by Cirque Du Soleil at Downtown Disney
