In 2010 & 2011, I did the Halloween 5K and the Wine & Dine ½. There was a similar time set up. And my schedule is brought to you by the letter "G":
•Get up at the crack of dawn.
•Gussy myself up for the 5K.
•Go do the 5K (with ALL the photo ops, of course).
•Gobble up some breakfast.
•Gingerly stroll DTD.
•Grab a siesta at the resort or by the pool.
•Graze on some food for dinner (depending on when your preferred pre-race mealtime is)
•Gravitate toward the buses to take me to the race start (or my rental car)
•Galivant toward the finish line (still taking in most of the photo ops)

I can't sleep in between the races. Partially because it is daylight, partially the adrenaline from the 5K and the jitters about the longer run. SO I just take it easy and use it as a 'down' day.

Awesome that you have a place to crash so close!!! And have no fear, where there is a Disney race, there will be a WISH meet.

Um.......all the good villains are women. Translating them into a costume suitable for running may be difficult, but at least you have something good to start with.

Time for me to flip through my Disney Villains book to see what I can pull for a Boy Baddie.

True...I'm just finding it hard to find any sort of basic iron-on to use...the ones that make those tend to stick to the "cuter" stuff I guess...probably because they are usually for kids! oh well...I'll have to contact the lady I've been using for this stuff lately...she's pretty good about custom stuff so she might be able to come of with something for me. When I think of villains, Ursula is always the one that comes to mind first...so maybe I'll run with that.

sidenote...due to unforseen circumstances, the BF and I had to celebrate Valentine's day a little early last night...and he surprised me with the large Disney Dooney tote with the Minnie bows all over...OMG, it's sooooo cute! I'm not quite as sad about missing out on the Tink one anymore

While I am sure the Tink Dooney would have been nice, I think the one with the Minnie bows is a tad bit more special. Congrats!!!!

jeanigor You have it down to a science! I love it! Looking at that plan makes me want to do both races, and it seems totally possible doing it like that. Smart! Good luck on finding a boy villain! Maybe the snake from Fantasmic, and possibly rig up some kind of light up eyes in a hat?

Wow! What a nice and thoughtful gift! I personally think that bag is cuter. I didn't care for the pale purple of the Tink bag (for all they hype, anyway).

As far as costume, I'm thinking bell hop to go with the Tower of Terror theme as opposed to the villains theme. I haven't run any since my 4.5 miler last weekend. I have 5.5 miles coming up this weekend so I'm really hoping life will let me sneak my short training runs in this week. I'll be registering tomorrow. It will be my first Disney race.

Hi all!

Just wanted to pop in and say I'm also planning on registering for this race tomorrow! It will be my first Disney race EVER, and also the first race I've ever registered for, although I'm planning on doing others in the Spring. I'm sooooo excited!!!

Right now I'm planning it as a solo trip, but possibly I'll find someone to bring along with me, lol. But, if not, it'll be my first Disney solo trip ever, which is kind of exciting.

And it would be really cool if there is a DIS meetup at some point for this race!

What about Cruella and her sidekick? I can't remember his name, and I don't think they were a couple, but it may be a cute idea?!

This has probably been asked or answered 100x, or Im just too blind to see it on the site but..

Does the race registration come with the villains bash party ticket or do I have to purchase those separate?

Also Disney had a promo for those who ran a race previous for the marathon, do they have a promo code for this one also?

From the wording, I believe the party is included in the race fee.

I think Disney issues promo codes for races it has a hard time filling. I doubt they would have a promo code this early. Maybe once it gets to a closer date, or if runDisney is at a race expo and the race is still open for registration.

I'm not sure about a promo code, but registration does include a ticket to the party.
