I think RunDisney NEVER should have posted the dates for the Wine & Dine and then moved it 1 month.

I was one of those who planned on the Wine & Dine Half, and even made a commitment based on those dates to be in Florida for the days surrounding Wine & Dine Half.

But, having said that, as I considered more, I'm okay with doing 16k that weekend instead of 21k:
-- "Tower of Terror" implies start and/or finish at DHS: I'm booked in at an Epcot Resort for the week, so at least WDW hasn't screwed me up on that!
-- My game plan was/is do a HALF in Toronto 2wks later, both more for the experience than for a PB. I'm just going to be that much fresher for that STWM Half.

So, I'm signing up for the Tower of Terror Ten Miler!

I'll be anxiously awaiting all the details from RunDisney!

I guess my current ticker will have to be revamped.....
Woo Hoo! Did the Dopey 2014! Disney is THE BEST PLACE to do your first fun Marathon!!!
In fact, loved it so much that I'm Dopey again in 2015!!!!

Havin no direct knowledge, other than of the 94 course, one could easily bang out a course starting in the Epcot parking lot and following the 5K course to the I Gate then head out.

DHS is my favorite park too and I also started running after they stopped the 13k. I was considering signing up for my first W&D but the more I think about it, the better this race sounds. I'm definitely excited to hear more details about this race.

Last week I booked an 8 day stay at Fort Wilderness from Sept. 28-Oct 6 I was anticipating the Wine & Dine being that weekend so I could get my coast to coast (doing the Tink next month). I must say that the more i think about it the more excited I am getting about it being the ToT.

I like it. I had already booked to do the Wine and Dine, but I'll happily run this instead. Something new to try, and it is Disney!

Like the idea, just going to depend on what the price is. Probably with the after race party it will be out of my limited budget.

Not sure that I am running as we have a local 10 miler the following weekend. Plus, I am just not a real night race person. I have to wait for more details before committing.
I, too, love the 10 mile distance AND I much prefer night running so I am super excited about them brining back this race! Of course, that means another trip to Disney. With my goal of doing every race Disney has to offer in 2012, that makes 7 trips to Disney in 2012. I think I am going to need some more DVC points

I think I'm in for this one. I kept hurting myself this winter in my training for the Princess half and was disappointed there was really nothing I wanted to do the rest of the year until the NEXT Princess. Now, this has popped up and it's a perfect distance for me, plus I'm a night runner for sure, and we LOVE ToT. We were also planning on staying at Beach Club, within walking distance to HS. Couple those facts with the fact we were already planning on being there from 9/22 through 9/29 and we've got a winner!!

Now, I have to decide how to center the race in my vacation. Do I do the race at the end of my vacation after I've been walking walking walking in the parks all week, or do I center it around the beginning of my vacation when I'm fresh but recovery might take up precious park days? I don't care about F&W, really, so I'm not concerned about whether or not we have more F&W days.

DH and I are heavily considering this race. It's a good length for us plus we like night running. Have DVC points to burn this year as well, so that works out well for us.

I'm excited about this one! We did the W&D last year and loved it. We are planning on a trip with our extended family in September and were hoping to fit a race in. We thought it would be the W&D, but this one sounds great too. I am due in February, so that should be plenty of time to get ready for a 10 miler.

I found a partner in crime so I will definately be doing this race! I am also planning on doing the DL Half and the Wine and Dine half so I will have a busy three months! I also have friend trying to convince me to do the WDW Full in 2013 so if I added that that would be 5 months of crazy traveling!

I'm in! We're huge fans of MNSSHP (WDW in 06 & 07, and DL in '11). The new race is just the push I needed to get me back to WDW for '12. Now that I think about it, I haven't been to DHS since '03, so the race really is perfect for me.

Any ideas on what the hotels will be? I'd love to stay at BC but I'm not sure how close/far it would be.

I may be in, but it depends on registration cost. It's already expensive just to get to Florida from where I live, so having to pay $100 or more for registration really hurts. I do love the night races, though and I'm a sucker for an inaugural medal, so I may have to save every penny to make it there.
