I think I've been talked into do this one. The twisting of my arm was very difficult.

Right now there will be three of us.

Three of us will be coming over from TX for this race. We're all excited as it'll be the first Disney race for each of us.

One question: if you aren't staying at a host hotel (but are staying at another WDW resort) can you still get transportation to packet pickup and back to your resort after the race/after party?

We stayed at a non-host resort for Wine & Dine and this is how we did it...saturday morning for packet pick up and the expo we just took a cab to WWoS. This seemed so much easier and less time consuming than trying to figure out how many busses we would need to take to where to get to a host hotel and then take another bus from there to the expo. As for getting to the start area of the race, it was a little easier since it was a night race and normal park busses were running. Busses were picking up runners that drove their own vehicles in one of the Epcot parking lots, so we just took our normal resort bus to Epcot, walked over to the parking area where the race busses were and hopped on one to the race starting area. It was simple and we had no issues whatsoever. I later read that traffic got to be pretty terrible and others that did this barely made it in time or arrived late. I leave myself PLENTY of time for stuff like this and am normally earlier than I need to be...but also normally miss out on the anxiety and stress of being late, missing the start and having to run to my corral. After the race, we hung around the after party for a bit but when we were ready to leave we asked a CM to point us in the direction of a cab line and took that route back to our hotel...there werwe plenty of cabs waiting there for runners and we got right into one.

In case you don't want to go all the way over to the Run Disney site, here are the Host Resorts:
Disney Value Resorts
Packages start as low as $214 per person for a two night stay.*
* Disney's All-Star Movies Resort
* Disney's All-Star Music Resort
* Disney's All-Star Sports Resort

Disney Moderate Resorts
Packages start as low as $259 per person for a two night stay.*
* Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter
* Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside

Disney Deluxe Resorts
Packages start as low as $458 per person for a two night stay*
* Disney's Beach Club Resort
* Disney's BoardWalk Resort
Not the resorts I was hoping for. Are these rates really that much cheaper?

If that is based on single occupancy, it is $107/night for the All-Stars. Not exactly what I would call a deal. But it isn't really about giving us a great deal to stay on sight, its to keep us all corralled into certain hotels if we want to use Disney's Transportation Services.

If pass holder rates are released, I may just rent a car. Sooo much easier.

....still wishing they would offer the choice of either a men's or women's cut shirt rather than the unisex...but oh well...it's not a deal breaker, I'll be there and I'll get the pin too because I'm a sucker!!! The BF and I decided at lunch today that we're going to splurge and stay at BW...at least that's the plan now...hopefully nothing happens in the next 7 months that will force us to change our minds. We've never stayed there before so it'll be nice to try something new...and that one has always been on his "want" list. Now seriously, what has happened to the fares to Orlando from Houston??? They've been insane lately! I'm trying to swing a trip in April and they are currently not budging from around $330-$370 and it's driving me nuts!

One perk is you can walk back to the Boardwalk from HS and the after party, if you so desire.

Am I understanding this correctly? A ticket to the Hollywood Bash will be included with registration? If so, that is an awesome deal. Much less than the Princess 1/2 registration and an after party included.

Glad to finally see details! I thought the price seemed reasonable. I'm surprised there is no chEAR squad or race retreat packages though. I guess the after party replaces that? I thought there might be a pasta night, too, but maybe they don't do that with the night races? I would also like to know the theme for the 5k. Maybe a villains theme? I'm kinda liking it so far. Now to keep training, training, training!
