Those alligators, even the idea of alligators really freak me out !!!!! That's one thing we don't have to worry about in CA.

I hope the Caribbean Beach Resort is one of the host resorts.

We went to Disney this past February and by this time last year, I had almost everything planned out or at least had marked on the calendar dates when I'd be able to plan stuff--dates hours would be released, when our ADR window opened, etc. We had our rooms booked (then changed them once FD came out, but still...) and had a list of where we wanted to eat and what we wanted to see.

This time, I have NOTHING except our travel dates. Unless there's a whole lot of pixie dust and we somehow end up with FD, we probably won't be doing many ADR's except my little princesses birthday meal of course! (She turns 6 on the 27th!) Still...the waiting is killing me. It just doesn't seem real until I book something!

Me too! I fell in love with SSR when we stayed a few years ago and consider it my favorite resort out of all of them.
Regarding dining, all I know is that I'm going to devour a skillet (or two ) at Whispering Canyon after the race!

POR is my second choice of resorts. I love that they have queen beds, rather than the doubles they used to have!

If worse comes to worst and I have to stay value, I'll do either AoA (if it's a host) or All Star Music again.

Come on hotels!!!!!

I haven't posted much, but this is my first half marathon. I have been running only since January, although I used to run back in the univeristy days (ie 12 years ago!). I just started doing some races this spring - I have done a 5K (29:46), an 8K (45:16) and a 10K (57:29). I have another 10K in a few weeks that I will be able to use for my corral placement. I love the race day feeling! I am running with a girlfriend and "sole mate" who is also new to running, but we are determined to do The Princess together! 21K sounds crazy right now, the most I have run at one time is 14K...but we have time, right?? LOL

Jodi
Those are some AWESOME times!!! I have a 10k next month, but it's a trail run and I am not trying to run fast and kill myself on it lol!

I'm also planning on POFQ. I'm a huge planner, and we are going to WDW for our family trip in October, staying at POR. I'm still working on organizing THAT trip, so the PHM trip is sort of on the back burner for now, but I do know flight dates and our hopeful resort.

Speaking of planning is anyone running a 10k or another race for corral placement? I usually run our big 4th of July race and use that time but if I don't like my time then I will look for a race in the fall.

I ran a 10k two weeks ago, and I'm running a half in September

I'm going to be doing a half in the fall. I'm also thinking of doing a 10K because I think I could probably get a better time with that. I'm torn--the one I wanted to do is the weekend before my half (which I don't think would make for a good half) but the other one is in August which is A.) hot and B.) sooner than I'd like to do it for the best time. Haven't figured out what to do.

I ran my first 5K in April, my next 5K on Oct 6 then my first 10K on Nov 11. Will the 10K be in time for my placement for the Princess?

I'm sure hoping something local comes along, otherwise my TOT 10-Miler time will be it... and I'm not loving the thought of that long, hot, muggy run determining where I sit for the Princess, lol!

It should be...I did a 10k for placement the first weekend of December in 2010 for Princess 2011 placement with no problems.

I'm running a 10K in October. It is a Halloween race so it should be fun. Not sure if I'm going to dress up because I don't want to slow myself down by wearing something out of the ordinary.

I know what you mean. Normally I do not like summer races and do way better in the Fall. I am one of the people that my magic mile is between 4-6. My 10k time always look better than my half time.

Is the 10k in August in the early morning? The one I just ran was HOT, but I wanted to get one under my belt for practice
