So do you think you love Disney? Do you think you love Disney enough to run 13.1 miles? If the answer is yes to both questions, you are not alone. Christine Cheng and Anthony Tsang’s love for Disney and each other have put them on the course to love runDisney.
“We run because of runDisney,” Christine recently told me when I visited them at home in San Francisco, just before they completed the Dumbo Double Dare at the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna at Disneyland Resort. “We have really never exercised too much before, but Disney gives us the motivation to get out there and lead a healthy, active lifestyle.”
Saying Disney is a part of their everyday life is an understatement. Their home is filled with Disney keepsakes, they enjoy using their annual passes and visiting the parks several times a year, and of course, one of their greatest Disney memories – a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding.
“We just love that Disney opens so many new experiences to us, so there’s always some way to incorporate Disney into our lives,” the couple said. “Even if you don’t think you can run, you can do a runDisney race.”
I hope Christine and Anthony’s love story inspires you to add a little runDisney to your life.

From “it’s a small world” to “Frozen,” the pumpkin carvers design an elaborate display showing their Disney Side each day at the Halloween Carnival in Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree at Disneyland park. I recently caught up with one of the creative carvers and asked her about her colorful creations.

I have exciting news to share about the next evolution of Glow With the Show. Introduced in 2012 at Disneyland Resort, this ear hat technology allowed guests to become a part of a show by lighting up in time with or in the same color scheme as a nighttime show or fireworks display. Last year, it was added to nighttime spectaculars at Walt Disney World Resort such as Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Wishes nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park. This fall, we are adding some new merchandise items that contain this interactive technology under a new name called “Made With Magic.”

Party for the Senses is a blowout way to end the day at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – an evening of discovery with a roomful of fantastic chefs, good wines, magical entertainment from Cirque du Soleil. All in all, there are nearly two dozen tasting stations with wine, beer and cocktails to pair. You won’t know until you arrive what you’ll be having, but the discovery is part of the fun.

It’s nearly the holiday season. Time for warm wooly sweaters, hot cocoa by the fire and snowball fights on the front lawn. Or at least that’s my dreamy vision of winter (speaking as someone living in Florida). But even if winter to you means shoveling your driveway and deicing your windshield, you can experience a truly heavenly winter wonderland on the Adventures by Disney Winter in Wyoming Long Weekend vacation.

Well, they aren’t exactly photos, but I think some of the coolest images we shared this week appeared in our “999 Happy Haunts” series, in which we’re taking a closer look at the residents of The Haunted Mansion attraction.
