The Command considers us a bunch of losers. But we’re gonna do it right this time, ’cause we’re the best. If we don’t... We’ll be drummed out of the corps.

In years past they have given racers a $10 gift card to use during the after party (or whenever they want in reality) toward food and drink. The after party ticket is admission.

There will be a booth to have your medal engraved in Epcot. Its location will be pointed out on the map of the after party. I think it is around $20 and was on the promenade as you enter World Showcase last year.
The countries are closed though, right? No going back over falls or finding Donald in Mexico, correct?

Seeing as how last year was the first year for the race to be held at that time, I am not sure "historically" fits as there is no precedent set. It would be nice if that is the case again this year though.

The countries were open. Most attractions in Epcot were open. For sure being tossed "back back over the falls" or chasing Señor Donald around México were available.

I'm not sure about being able to take a nap in the countries with movies though

Wow, for some reason I thought they were closed. That's pretty cool then... How bad are the lines?

Not terrible. Some attractions were virtual walk ons. Soarin' was only like 15 mins last year. (Getting to the attraction was harder than waiting for it--downhill slopes like that KILL me after a race)

LoL! Awesome.

Call me insane, but I'm dreaming of doing the race then doing Soarin, oh, about 50 times. Like I said, for me the victory of the night will be crossing the line and just being in the park after-hours. I've done MK after-hours, but EPCOT is my favorite park and I've never done an after-hours event there. I'm pumped to just be there.

It totally rocks. I don't think you are insane, and I doubt in this forum, anyone else would either. Birds of a feather tend to flock together!

I'll be running as solo as you can be in a WISH shirt. I love that you feel a sense of belonging! My parents will be at the end (hopefully!)

Historically that is when the first MVMCP occurs. It just so happens to be race weekend too now.

Agreed, WISHers never run alone. It's just you and a few hundred people you've already talked to! My DH and DDs will be at the end, but as for the run I am a solo. My youngest DD could easily place in Corral A, but she doesn't quite meet the age requirements. But I imagine they'll be riding Soarin' and TT until they realize I'm getting close to the home stretch!

I probably will be traveling and running solo.

Nice job on the Little Rock Half! I know all about those runners who you set your sights on, leave in the dust, just to have them reappear out of nowhere. HATE that!!
