Me neither (see well at night) - it kinda just added to the creepy theme, lol!

Good luck on your race! I can never remember: Pt St Lucie is east coast or west? Bet it's a pretty course!

I'm local(ish); I can't ever justify rack rate, so it's either snag an AP or FL discount or stay off site. Assuming I've used up all of my DVC points... which is nearly always a safe assumption!

I'm on the east coast, about 1 hr north of WPB. Yes, the course should be nice, goes through the community of Tradition, that's where I live 😃

When does RunDisney usually put up the registered percents? It isn't listed for this race yet. I'm not sure if that's a good sign, or a bad one.

I think they start once it reaches 50% but not totally sure that is just what I have gathered from reading other threads. .. does anyone know for sure?

Nearly a local.... 95% sure to be one for this race. I AM in the same boat with DVC.... I think I have 18 points left for the next use year. Thankfully that rolls over before the marathon and I have more than enough points for January.

Most definitely... the count down bar popps up at 50%. Do note that in 2012 this was a fast fill race. I would expect it to be full before Memorial Day - that is unless the capacity was grown.

Just signed up and am really excited! This will be my 2nd Disney race. Coming down with my sister (who's not running) and staying at Art of Animation. Since it's not a host resort, we're going to have to figure out transportation. Probably end up renting a car for a couple days.

DH and I are thinking about AoA too so after some reading I found out you can actually walk from AoA to POP (which is a host resort) so maybe something to consider so you don't necessarily have to rent a car :0) (I will say I do not know how long the walk is though lol)

Lucky! I'm borrowed through 2014, lol! But thinking of switching things around...
And great news on almost being local - fingers crossed for you!

Any guesses on how much runDisney might bump up the cap for TOT? Having Princess to compare with now, I much preferred the smaller feel of TOT. I really want to be a legacy for this one, but not if it becomes a giant fiasco over time.

Thanks! It's lovely here. I can walk to Publix, if need be. 3 minutes away are Target, BBB, Sports Authority, Longhorn and Olive Garden, just to name a few.

i am 99.9% sure that i am in!!!

we're planning to stay at AofA! we will probably get a cab back to the resort though. i'm thinking it's going to be worth whatever it costs. ha!

i'll be going with my sister and two oldest kids. we're going to leave the toddler home with Daddy. that will be HARD (to leave him home), but i'm thinking he wouldn't enjoy himself at the after-party or at MNSSHP.
