My estimated completion time came in a separate email that was from some autogenerated email address. Maybe that one got caught in your junk mail file or something?

And I'd be thrilled with Corral C. Here's hoping.

Why can't they keep it open through Marathon weekend and THEN start the refurb? It would seem the smarter thing to do, with the higher crowds that weekend.

Maybe the refurb schedulers just aren't clued in to marathon weekend.

(edited bc I was wrong about BTMM being down too, so I took that part out! Also... one ride being down is not as big of a deal, I originally thought it was two right next to each other. Never mind! )

It needs some serious attention, I think they're just hoping to get through New Year's before taking it down. It was down a LOT when we were there in June, and then in September it was running, but the hopping Bre'r Rabbit was missing from one scene, and none of the fountains were going in the Laughin Place. Really needs some work! I'd actually rather miss it than have it be operating in that kind of shape.

I got the same. I got 2 separate emails, but neither gave expected time.

I gave the time of 4:30 when I registered. When I sent in my 1/2 time, they upped it to 4:55. Dang! Should've kept my mouth shut, LOL

I can only dream of being that fast I just don't want to be in the last corral. So far I've been lucky and I've never been in the last. Even with not submitting a time. This is the first time I've submitted a time. It will prob backfire and I'll be in the last one

TOTALLY agree. I thought it was in bad shape back in February 2011 when I rode it after the Princess Half. I'm glad they're finally giving it a long refurb and I really hope it addresses all of the issues Splash has been having.

Yeah, you are right. I just selfishly want to ride it while I'm there! But I agree, I get so sad when parts of it aren't working. Or when my flume log is all out of sync with the action. Or when the logs "logjam" constantly. Or when the jumping fountains aren't happening... Etc.!

I'll just have to plan a trip for another Disney race post-refurb!

I specifically remember the music not being in sync, and I'm pretty sure some of the AAs weren't working. But the worst was getting in a huge logjam as the ride was ending. My legs were pretty sore from the Princess Half and to just be crammed in that log with no idea as to when we'd get out was awful. So yeah, I'll all for the refurb!

I would expect that RunDisney is just using a training/pace calculator to provide you with a finish time. There are several out there you can use to provide the same estimate. Here's one from Runner's World, and the second from Running for Fitness, which factors in age/gender.

My news is that I have been cleared to run, but will not until November. Reason #1 is that my ribs hurt too much to even think about running, and reason #2 is that I just don't feel confident that my foot is entirely healed and that I can just start up again. So another 2 weeks is bound to help that.

I love this thread because everyone is so supportive and positive! That being said, do any of you ever freak out about running 26.2? I have had a HORRIBLE running week. We have a new puppy, which I love, but I am getting 2-3 hours of sleep at a time. I'm tired and not eating well. Intellectually I know this is the cause of my bad week. Emotionally... I am freaking out! I feel like I hate running and feel like I am crazy for signing up for this. I start thinking about running that far and I almost feel a panic attack coming on. I just want to give up I have my long run tomorrow and I am already dreading it. Does anyone else ever feel this way?

Yep, I've felt that way before. It happens - sometimes, you have a bad run, or a bad week. It's okay. Do your best on the long run, but, more importantly - get some rest!

All runners are equal. Some however, are apparently more equal than others.

Yep! I think "the most I have done is a half marathon and I have to run 2 of those at once!" But my goal is to finish and get that Mickey medal so I keep slogging through!

Once of our dogs was spayed last Friday and I was up all night with her. Then got up at 6 a.m. on Saturday to run a half marathon. ZZZZZZ. But I made it through and actually felt like I could have done another one! (okay, well maybe just a few more miles, but it gave me confidence that I can finish the full!).
