I headed out of work later than I wanted and didn't get down to Disneyland until 7. I took some crazy streets but made it there! There wasn't dedicated Expo parking so I parked at the downtown Disney lot behind paradise pier which was easy to get into and pretty close to the expo.
I headed to the basement to pick up my bibs and up to the expo floor to get my shirts and then straight to sparkle athletic. I gave them an adorable pic of myself and got my skirt for 50% off!
I had just enough time to get in the KT Tape line and get my left shin taped. While there they still had the limited edition USA Rio tape so I got the last limited edition black and also a role of blue.
The expo was pretty busy for it being 7:30 at night. I didn't get to go into the merchandise area so I knew I would have to go back.
I headed back to the expo on Friday when Mallory arrived. We got the rundisney drink, visited the Emmy and got into merchandise. I don't need anything and I didn't buy anything which may be a first. They had a ton of merchandise so I'm wondering if they ordered more or if it's race merchandise fatigue.
I went back to the expo on Saturday just to do the screening room. We saw the screening for American Housewife which has potential but the pilot was not as funny as I thought it would be and also Speechless which was so awesome! For watching and filling out the post survey, we got gifts: an American housewife collapsible water bottle and a speechless drawstring backpack.
One other thing (as you can see below): Disney photopass had a booth set up. They dont tell you this, but they have the course maps and little green dots where the photographers will be! I took pics of them and we were able to remember where they would be and got some awesome shots which you will see in the race recaps.
Overall I really enjoyed the expo. There were tons of photo opportunities that I didn't wait in line for that Cigna did. I really hope the other expos are this quality.
What was the last expo you went to?
