In Which Jenn Shares Her Rarest Character Race Photos

Pat and I were talking the other day about how we hope we can ride Splash Mountain one more time before the refurb starts. Now, I have gone on record as being 100% on board with the overhaul. But still, a final ride-through to say goodbye would be nice. That got me thinking – once, a long time ago, during the 2016 WDW Marathon, I got a photo with Brer Fox and Brer Bear. It’s the only time I’ve ever seen either character, in the parks or as part of a runDisney event. Perhaps they’ll appear one more time...

In Which Jenn Can runDisney Photo Dump Again, Hooray!

Despite my better fiscal judgment, I have an WDW Annual Pass once again, and you know what that means, kids – I CAN ACCESS MY RUNDISNEY PHOTOPASS RACE PHOTOS FOR FREE! And then I can make you look at them. Wait, no, don’t click away! Don’t you want to read my commentary??? It’s pithy and judiciously deployed, I promise! For context, if you like that sort of thing: WDW Half Marathon Recap | WDW Marathon Recap HALF MARATHON Arranged in height order. MARATHON I spent entirely too long making this. I don’t know what it’s for. “How horrible our Christmas will...

In Which Jenn’s Marathon Photos Will Blow You Away

Mini trip report! Read all the posts in this report here. Did I say I was finished with my WDW Marathon trip report? Just kidding! See, I let my Annual Pass lapse because I knew I wouldn’t be taking enough trips in the allotted time frame. No doubt I’ll get another – after all, I think we can all agree I have an addiction and I can only be strong for so long. But in the meantime I’m tragically devoid of parks… and perks: restaurant discount, merchandise discounts, and of course, free photo downloads. Therefore I thought I was out...

Baltimore Marathon

In Which Jenn’s Baltimore Marathon Photos Tell An Epic Story (About Someone Else)

One nice perk the Baltimore Marathon offers its participants is free race photos. No $35-for-a-single-photo-file nonsense here! Mind you, I usually look, shall we say, less than radiant in my race pics, but of course I always check ’em out anyway. And I was scrolling through the available shots, a saga unfolded. Let’s start from the beginning. Here I am running along happily, because my IT Band hasn’t started misbehaving and I don’t yet wish I were dead. And here I am approaching the finish line. I now have an unhappy IT Band and wish I were dead. Ah,...

In Which Jenn Insists On A Photo In Front Of Cinderella Castle

The trip report proper is over, but we’re not done yet – I’ve still got lots of thoughts, including food reviews and photos! You can see all the posts in this report here. Onward! Having failed in locating a non-swamped PhotoPass photographer outside Spaceship Earth, I was bound and determined to make it happen in front of Cinderella Castle. The closer you are to the castle the longer the lines – but if you’re willing to accept a slightly less impressive backdrop, the photographers further down Main Street are much easier to secure. And may well be even better – or...

Haunted Mansion

In Which Jenn & Pat Are Frozen With Fear At The Haunted Mansion

The trip report proper is over, but we’re not done yet – I’ve still got lots of thoughts, including food reviews and photos! You can see all the posts in this report here. Onward! It was Pat who spotted the PhotoPass photographer, not me. I blazed right past her in my quest to ride the Haunted Mansion, but he saw and asked if I wanted to stop on the way out. Post doom-buggy exit, we pulled off to the side of the path, just pass the pet cemetery. The mini photo shoot seemed unremarkable. The photographer took the usual pictures –...

In Which Jenn DID NOT PEE HERSELF DURING THE DARK SIDE HALF, SWEAR

Perhaps you are rolling your eyes already at the subject line of this post. Perhaps you are quite sick of looking at me. Perhaps you have written me off as a narcissist. It’s okay. I understand. But my Annual Pass expires in December, and with it, my free PhotoPass downloads. Will I ever get another? Maybe. As of now, though, these are the last free runDisney photos I will ever download. SO NATURALLY IT LOOKS LIKE I PEED MYSELF IN HALF OF THEM. It’s thigh sweat! THIGH SWEAT! And possibly some anti-chafing gel? I tend to slather it on...

In Which Jenn Might Be In Your Disney Photo Album RIGHT NOW

Do you ever wonder, with all your trips to Disney parks, how many random strangers have random photos and video of you? Billy Collins can explain: Think about it – all the times you walked into someone’s photo because you didn’t notice the guy several feet away snapping a pic, or the many, many more times you walked behind a group posing. All the on-ride pictures, where your Splash Mountain log is filled out with any number of people you don’t know, and on Expedition Everest when the girl in front of you put her arms up too and...

The Favorite Photos: Universal Studios, 2011 – 2015

My last retrospective album post focuses on Universal Studios. Here are my favorite photos from there. (See also: First Photos and Last Photos.)

There are different...
