I know a lot of people are staying at the Candy Cane Inn. I couldn't get a room there, so I booked at the Ramada Maingate.

For those not staying at CCI, where are you staying?

We're staying at the Grand Californian because it's closer for my DW to bring the kids from the hotel to the start and back to the finish. Plus, it'll be our first time staying there! :thumbsup2

We're at the HoJos with a Disneyland view!

We're at Grand California, too. This will be our first trip to DL!!! :goodvibes

We are also at the Ramada Maingate. We stayed there before, it is a very short and easy walk to the main entrance of Disneyland. It will also be a good warm-up walk on 1/2 marathon morning and a good cool down after the run! I think we are there from the 14th thru the 18th.

Anyone going by themselves? Or are you going with your entire family? There is no way that we could afford to go out to DL again (we were there last August before the repo cruise) but I would love to do the 1/2 but I'm scared to go by myself. Just wondered if anyone else was being adventurous on their own.

As of now, I'm on my own. Nobody wants to go to the expense and time of flying out just for the weekend (I leave for WDW 2 weeks later, so I can't really afford to stay longer and treat this trip as a vacation).

Terri---I have the same problem. We leave for WDW 2nd week of October and then cruising on the Magic. I haven't told my DH that I would like to do this 1/2 yet. He would think I was crazy. If I could find a way to get away for the weekend and it not be too expensive...... I just think it is cool that it is the 1st one and I would love to be a part of it. I've never done a 1/2 before. Just finished the Minnie 15K last week so now I'm psyched to do more. Will be at the Race for the Taste in Oct and thinking about the WDW 1/2 in January. At this point the race registration is full for DL so I would have to be part of one of the teams for kids. Debi

Deb- I am going on my own. My mom is thinking about coming with me, but I will be running the 1/2 on my own. There are a lot of WISHers who are going, and we will have WISH meets and be easy to spot with our cool lime green racing shirts. So you may arrive alone, but you will NOT be alone on the trip. We will be there with you! :goodvibes

P.S. The castle medal is awesome! I got to hold it at the WDW marathon expo in January. I have got to have that bling!
