I am going in search of other RunDisney threads right after I send this. TIA!
I can't speak for the 5K, but I know someone that did it this last weekend and she has a bad knee-she did it in around 1hr 10mins, which is under pace. I know with the half I had the pacer lady on my tail the last 5 miles or so because of my restroom break and stop to put biofreeze on. I know she said once we were in Epcot's parking lot(mile 11.5 or so) we wouldn't be swept-had to be off the main roads, but there were alot of people behind me. don't know if that helps much.
