RED Episode #27: Star Wars 10K at Walt Disney World in Orlando

RUN

In this episode, we recap the Star Wars 10K that was part 1 of our First Order Challenge in Orlando at Walt Disney World. 

You can find out more about this Orlando and Walt Disney World race weekend on Run Disney’s website.

It was a nice and flat course that started through the streets around Magic Kingdom (not inside the park), then took us inside Hollywood Studios, along the water and the awesome scenery of the BoardWalk, and we finished running through a short portion of the World Showcase at Epcot.

EAT

At the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, we had so many delicious offerings to choose from, and the Northern Lights (the Canadian area of the World Showcase).  We headed there for dessert.  Can you say warm maple pound cake with peach compote and sweet corn gelato?  We can...

DRINK

Also in the area best known as Canada but currently known as the Northern Lights during the festival, we discovered that there were several tasty beverages that we needed to try.  One was a Maple Popcorn Milkshake featuring Crown Royal Maple Whiskey.  And of course there was a beer flight, but this one has a special place in our hearts because Unibroue beer helped us recover from Hurricane Irma in 2017.  Here’s what we got to sample:

Unibroue Maudite Amber Ale

Unibroue À Tout Le Monde Saison

Unibroue Éphémère White Ale


THAT’S A WRAP!

RED Episode #26: 2018 Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon in Orlando

RUN

In this episode, we recap the Dark Side Half Marathon at the 2018 Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend. You can find out more about this Orlando and Walt Disney World race weekend on Run Disney’s website.

It was a nice course that started through the streets around Magic Kingdom (not inside the park), then took us inside Animal Kingdom and the beautiful new part featuring Avatar-themed adventures. We reached the 10K mark outside the park and headed to Hollywood Studios, along the water and the awesome scenery, down the BoardWalk, and we finished with a lap around the World Showcase at Epcot.

EAT

At the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, we had so many delicious offerings to choose from, and Mexico is one of our favorites. Chilaquiles was our selection and it did not disappoint.

DRINK

Also in Mexico, was the tasty Rose Margarita.  It was not too “floral” in flavor, but a perfect blend of tequila and sweetness to complement our dish.

THAT’S A WRAP!
