As a family of six, the free dining always works out better for us than a discounted room.
I crunch the numbers each year and for now it still works for us.
Even if we stay at a value and upgrade the dining.
We'll see what happens next year!

I'm so excited that I'm not the only one who runs to Hey A Movie! I feel validated, thank you. The Disney's Dreams Come True has a good beat to run to as well.

Len has Iron Maiden on his playlist? I knew I liked him!

I'd love to see both Len and Scopa's complete playlists.

Share and Enjoy!

Thanks for the running playlists, folks - one question: where can I download the Epcot entrance medley? I love hearing that song on MWR, and I would love to have it on my running list. Really appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks!

Suggestions for playlist- Just about anything by The Hives or The Black Keys. I use the Nike+ application for the I-pod, and you can choose a "power song". When you need a boost, just hold down the ipod pad and your power song comes up. Currently my power song is Kanye West "Touch the Sky"

Thanks for posting your running playlists! I'm definitely stealing Lets Go Crazy and Whisper to a Scream from Len, and I'm TOTALLY with Scopa on the Black Eyed Peas and GLEE!

I'm a beginning-ish runner (I'm up to the run 1m30s / walk 3m30s stage of my running program) and find that having the right music pumping really makes a difference in both my motivation and my stamina. I've got a crazy goal of doing the Disney Half Marathon in January 2012. Maybe I'll see you guys there?
