A few smaller races were held yesterday morning

They made use of the old Green Army Men stand that used to be outside the Esplanade promoting Toy Story Midway Mania

The starting point for most of these smaller races was the Timon parking lot

One of the few times that Heelys are welcome in Disney parks

Signs directing people to each of the different races inside DCA

The finish point in Paradise Pier

The Toy Story characters were there to celebrate

This basically looks like a crawling race for very young kids… A bit stupid if you ask me!

Now moving away from the Half Marathon… Halloween Time is now being promoted before the security tents

Filming of some sort going on in New Orleans Square

Construction walls in front of the old Fantasyland Skyway Station
