I get to book my Ohana reservation tomorrow! We've never been there so I'm really looking forward to it. I was hoping there would be Wishes that night but no luck. That's ok. I don't want to fight the crowds getting back to our hotel anyway.

Under 6 months now kids!! Can't wait!

CONGRATS on your PR, that is an amazing time!!!

Why no wishes? If it is a Halloween party night there will be Hallowishes, which is an even better show (IMHO)!

Officially started training yesterday. I have a July 4th 10k that I am prepping for. So that is my prelude to this race and hopefully I can get a halfway decent time and not be in the last group!

The hardest part of training will be last half of July. We will be on DCL in the Med. for 12 days plus a few extra in Barcelona. Between heat and other activities I am going to do my best to keep up with the training. But it will definitely be the hardest part.

Corrals, proof of time

I'm really glad for all this corral/proof of time talk. Today I submitted my time from a 2012 half marathon. Hopefully, I'll be in a closer corral now. The DisneySports email replied within an hour or so.

I just looked for Sunday, 10/6 and there is MNSSHP that night. Are the fireworks usually the same time as Wishes?

That is amazing they got back to you so quickly! For the phm, it took at least a week...but I don't think more than two. I wonder if it depends on what races are nearing and how full things are.

I sent in my time from my 10k... I hope to hear back soon...but will be happy if I hear back by the end of the week.

And.. in case some of you have not seen some of the "new stuff"

2 things...

there are the rumors that for 2014 races, proof of time will have to be submitted if you think you will finish in a longer time (like for the phm it was 2:45 and now looks like it will be 3:15. Also no corral changes will be allowed at the expo.

The other thing was that runnersworld (I guess they did last year too) is offering a package where you get to buy your corral placement (as in a special corral for those with the package) and walk to the corral. (as well as get pasta in the park and race retreat) for the WDW marathon weekend...dopey challenge.

I am happy about the first (except for corral placement change at the expo... I think a lot can happen for people between registration and race day), but worry that the second will just have those who would not have submitted proper proof just buy their way in.

Yep. I just registered for the WDW Half in January and it's very clear that if you do not submit proof of your time under 3:15:00 you'll be placed in the last corral. I don't have a time I want to submit right now, so I'll have to email it in before the cutoff in Nov. I'm pretty happy with the changes, even though random corral placement has totally worked in my favor in the past, lol! I'm not a fast runner, but it would be nice to have corrals be mostly folks of similar pacing.

I agree... corrals placing people with similar pacing would be great. I imagine that has been the intent all along, but I know that some people just put down the 2:45 or even turn in "official times" that are not really all that accurate. I hope it helps to curb that a bit. I do think that the no corral placement changes at expo is a bit tough. So much can happen between the cut off and the expo. I was very committed last year to training for the ToT... but the cut off was too soon for me to get a time to submit. By the time the race happened I was running a much better pace than I was by the cut off. So what I think this will do is just keep less experience runners out of the first corrals... Now I have plenty of times to go off of since I have been at this for a year. That being said...even being slightly more experience this year than last... I imagine that I may have room to improve between July and October.

I hope someone has a more solid answer for you, but I think the fireworks (Hallowishes) were at about 9pm last year....

I was impressed by how fast they got back to you...but still thought I would hope for a week. Well, guess what???? They got back to me as well within a very short time today. Not only that... I got a confirmation not just from trackshack...but active. The one from active showed my previous anticipated finish time and my new anticipated time. I have never had a double set of confirmations like this. Hopefully this is a sign that rundisney is getting more on the ball with these races.

Thanks for the info! I booked at 7:55 so if they are at 8:00 or 9:00 I should be covered. And ask for a window seat right? We've never seen the EWP so I'm hoping to catch that too!

Good to hear! Thanks for sharing, guys -- always nice to know what to expect.

I would ask... I have always booked during a time where wishes might be going on... and never been able to see the fireworks. However... I have NEVER asked for a window seat. I suppose that would have been the thing to do.
