Starting to plan my WDW trip

I’ve registered for my races and I’ve finally decided on my hotel. Planning for my big 2014 WDW Race-cation in November is officially in full swing. And I’m really starting to get excited!!

Running the Wine & Dine Half to get my Coast to Coast in 2014 has ALWAYS been my plan. Running this race AND having an awesome vacation in Walt Disney World has ALWAYS been my plan. This has been my plan since I first started running in 2011 while training for my first half marathon (first half marathon being the 2012 Inaugural Tinker Bell Half). I was fortunate enough to go to WDW twice in my youth with my family. Now returning to WDW nearly 20 years later as an adult to run and have an awesome race-cation is a huge thing for me, especially since I’ll be earning my Coast to Coast medal as it will be my first. WDW trips and earning multiple Coast to Coast’s aren’t in my budget and those who are able to do so, I think that’s great. I’m glad that I’ll finally be able to join the ranks of the coveted Coast to Coast.

I will be able to do a day at Universal Studios as well. I can’t pass up going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I GET TO DRINK BUTTERBEER AND BUY MYSELF A WAND AT OLLIVANDERS!! HELLLOOOOOOOO!! And I just read that the Hogwarts Express will be completed this Summer so I’ll be able to go from Hogsmeade and Diagon Valley via the Hogswart Express. UMM HELLO!!

So that leads me to this…what are YOUR favorite places to eat at WDW? Please give your top foods/restaurants to eat at while at Walt Disney World. I will be getting the Disney Dining Plan while on this vacation, so I’m looking for suggestions on EVERYTHING! (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, quick/counter service, sit down, etc.) Oh, and please don’t suggest Via Napoli as it’s already been decided that I’ll definitely be going there as I’ve had too many people tell me their food is awesome. 😉
