DH is running it solo...I will be on the trip with a friend, but she and I will be at the spectator event in epcot while DH is running. We will head to the finish line when we get the text that he's close

Are there usually any Dooney and Bourke purses available at the Wine and Dine half marathon? I really like the "run around the World" bags and I see that there is a "run around the Land" available for the Disney Land race.
Thanks

I didn't see any last year. They have only been doing the special Dooney patterns for WDW Marathon, Disneyland Half, Princess Half and Tinkerbell Half. But who knows, maybe they'll do a pattern for the anniversary year?

Has anyone flown Allegiant from NY/VT for this race before? Getting ready to book my flights and they have some good prices. I know it's Sanford airport, so no DME, and I'm fine with using a rental or car service.

Since no one has replied, I will at least tell you we had a decent experience in May with Allegiant from Chattanooga to Sanford...and my input regarding flying into Sanford is that it is a nice airport, not anywhere near MCO congestion and crowds...I would easily fly into there again and rent a car.. We used Alamo, very easy, but a little bit of a walk to the counter area)

We easily drove the 30-40 minute trip to Orlando area (DTD area)...easy drive, but our Iphone made us take toll roads the night we flew in (we may have been a little travel tired, so didn't input things correctly) and this certainly is not required...we knew better on the return trip (from Hard Rock Hotel) and had no tolls...

Allegiant is a little tricky when it comes to the final cost of the ticket, since they a la carte the entire process...bag fees, seat selection fees, etc.

Thanks David. I may go with Allegiant and the rental to check out Sanford and the outlet shopping, if I can squeeze another day into this trip.
