Of course matching shirts is okay. Just like if you wore matching shirts to a park. Show solidarity!!! Keep it up!

Something came to mind last night.

Last year they had security check your bag prior to checking your race bag, since they were transported to inside the park. There was a big line on both sides of bag check.


Also looked into park tickets as I let my AP lapse. $126 for a two day non-hopper. Partial day on Saturday and I think I will sleep in on Sunday. Decisions, decisions.

I wonder if he/she is coming on the cruise with us
Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

"Don't try new things on race day. 5K isn't a terribly long distance, but if you are wearing brand new shoes for the event because they look nice and you get blisters or they rub your feet raw, you'll be miserable. Same goes with a costume. Giant Mickey hands and ear are a cute costume; but, will you be saying that after the race?
"Don't eat too out of your 'zone'. If you are used to eating an hour before you go out for a run, try to stick close to your schedule. Also on race day, try to eat familiar foods, or food that will not upset your stomach. I eat Thai food regularly before I run. If I eat oatmeal or yogurt, I end up heaving on the side of the road after a couple miles.
"Remember to refuel. Stay hydrated and rebuild your nutrients your used during the race.

I want to say Restrauntasaurus was open after the race last year? I ate my banana and drank my water and rode Kali River Rapids four times to cool off. It was HOT. If a restaurant accepts the dining plan during normal park hours, it should accept it after park hours for a Disney event/party.
Ahhhhhh, memories..... Looking forward to doing it again this May.

DH and I registered yesterday

I have a question about the race shirts, how do the sizes run? I'm a pooh sized gal,but have been toning up/ training for the last 5 weeks to prepare for the race. Just hoping that the shirt will fit.

I too am pooh sized and last year's shirt fits well. I got the XL and since it's a "unisex" fit, it worked find for me. Feel free to pm me if you have any more specific fit questions!

Thanks for your response! I ordered a XXL so I'm hoping I can exchange it if too big

Sooner is better than later. Especially with how quickly the last few percentage points seem to fly by.

I saw that too, and now I just checked again and it's back down to 85% full. I refreshed the browser to make sure. Maybe they're having some confusion over there at RunDisney!

Of course this means nothing as I could check again in 10 minutes and find it 100% full, so I'd say if you want to sign up, do it now!

The lead page with the percentage bar shows 85%, but the registration page shows 95%.
