It sold out in january 2011, but not until feb 20, 2012

I usually do parks Friday, easy on Saturday for no more than half the day, then full out Sunday and Monday.

The room prices are giving me a headache. Last year there was a good AP discount in October, so I have my fingers crossed

That ticket price is way off! 3 days with park hoppers was 190 I think on the website. Did you price it on the special website?

Yeah, rundisney was pretty bad today I think. I talked to 2 people who really seemed confused. Had to keep putting me on hold, which is ok, but it was clear something wasn't working right today

I think I will let the dust settle from all these things being released at once and call back in a few days to get a better quote since we do already have our rooms booked!

On your race confirmation of registration there will be a link to theme park tickets website and a code to use to get into the site.

Woo Hoo!! I'm all signed up! We are DVC members, so I have to wait till July 21 to book my room. I'm a little bummed that SSR isn't a host resort again (our home away from home), but I'm hoping to book Boardwalk and I have never stayed there. So it will be fun to check out a new resort! Just wanted to book my room toay so it was one more thing checked off the list.

Cool!!! Very new to running and it's been very slow going with very very painful shin splints that I just can't get rid of. I'm registered for the ToT 10miler and would really like to see how I do before I spend the money on this.

First Timer- Scared and Excited at the Same Time!

I just signed up for this tonight! As I stated in the title I am scared and excited at the same time.

Here's a little background on me: I'm 42. I'm what most nice people would call the Pooh Sized. I have gone from the low to mid 300's to 265 lbs. since October of 2011 when I had emergency back surgery when I ruptured 2 discs. I have done a lot local 5ks at about a 17 minute pace and know that if I put my mind into it, I can do this half as well. I work out 3-5 times a week at our local gym.

I am looking for any advice that I can get.

Can't wait to read all the posts and get to know everyone.

BTW- my favorite princess is Belle.

Just booked Beach Club on DVC points for Fri Sat Sun and Mon. We plan on flying home on Sunday night but I wanted the room so that I could shower, change and relax. I don't know if it is a host resort but one of the EPCOT resorts I would think would have to be. I couldn't locate the list of host resorts on the Run Disney site.

The host resorts are listed under Travel Details. It's in the purple box in the upper left corner. Looks like most of the resorts are except SSR and OKW.

Well, I did it. I am registered. I also added the Race Retreat for me since I will be alone in the AM and then the Platinum Cheer for DH! I am getting so excited.

We are in the same boat but our home is OKW. Who knows, once the dust settles they might add those too (we can hope right?) because SSR was a host last year

Why can some people book dvc already and some have to wait? I know that we are booked at boardwalk with friends and have been booked for a few weeks already.

I would definitely recommend using that code. I saved over $100 on my park hopper when all was said and done for 2012.

They also have the discounted tickets available at the expo. They are listed as half day tickets for $56.00 but were able to use them for a full day. Just putting it out there for people that may not stay for long time but want a day or two in the parks.
