Disney World's Marathon Weekend is always a busy and hectic few days for us. We've covered all the races in previous posts, but we didn't cover some of the other things we did during that trip.
There were a lot of characters on all the race courses. We also stopped for a few other photo opps.
Theme Park Connections. It's a large warehouse that combines flea market with Disney's trash bin. You can find old employee handbooks, Disney magazines, old awards (with names of recipients on them), movie props, ride items, blue prints, etc. lots of fun but smells like your grandpa's attic. We purchased a "Dave" cast member name tag, a Peter Pan Imagineering pin, and a Disney Magazine issue from WDW's 25th anniversary (the year we first went to WDW together).
After that we drove to the town of Celebration. This is a Disney created planned community. Lots of parks, nice houses, shopping, and dining. We had a good lunch at the Celebration Town Tavern.
We also did close to two days of park touring with Eddie and Anna McCoy. We had a blast, even though we may have come close to losing our annual passes due to an incident with a puppet. That may be a story we share a year from now ;)
