Thanks for the heads up on the changes. I'll change the 1st post when I get home tomorrow night, down here getting my DL on. No Cars preview but it's still DL you can't go wrong there. Watched the fireworks from backrow of Thunder, it was AWESOME!! Highly recommend it!

As for costume ideas, a lot of people dress up as Tink, wearing green and wearing wings. I wore a lime green shirt and got Tink Mickey ears and pinned them on top of my running hat.

I have to say that as much as I loved seeing everyone in their great costumes, being hit in the face multiple times by wings and having to dodge and weave around em was NOT great. Kind of wish they had made it a Wendy and Peter Pan race....then I'd just have to worry about people with swords and books...

I'm in too! Tink will be my first half and I'm super excited! I started couch 2 5K in March, ran my first 5K on Mothers Day and I'm registered for another one at the end of the month. I'm also registered for a 10K in September which Im just now starting to train for. I think for Tink I'm going to try following Jeff Galloways program once he posts a training schedlue for Tink.

Wow, just saw the change to the 5am start...so we're going to have to be in our corracls by 4:30 then? I'm booked at the Hojo's also. How long does it take to walk from Hojo to the start of the race?

I am also signing up for this race - first half marathon. A bit terrified about running that far! I will have my 5yo and 3 yo with me (well, they will be with my husband while I am at the race) but I am looking at a decent, close by place to stay that offers a separate sleeping area for the kids - like bunk beds or something. Any recommendations?

I didn't wear a costume last year, but there were tons of them. I just have a hard enough time running 13.1 miles w/o fancy wings and skirts.
This vendor had an amazing booth at the expo- I bought some awesome tinkberbell leg warmers that said "I can fly" with wings. Their skirts also looked nice and comfortable (you wear them over capris)

It was really warm last year.

I am def signing up first thing tomorrow. Last year was awesome!!

I'm in. This will be my first half marathon, but I'm hoping to find more runs in between to help train, maybe a couple of 5Ks. I will not be wearing a costume, not a chance.

Yeah, wasn't a big wing fan either. Especially at the beginning when we're trying to space out and when the course narrowed going in and out of the park areas. Love the Wendy and Peter theme. I dressed up as Mr. Smee for the 5k, and I saw these 2 ladies who ran as Peter and the other all in black as his shadow.

It takes 8-10 mins or so to get from Hojos to the entrance of the park and figure another 15 -20 to the start, so if you're going straight to the corral, not doing the bag drop, and want to get to the corrals by 4:30, I would leave no later than 4. But if you're doing the bag drop, a little bit earlier. The staging area is in the parking lot next to Paradise Pier and the start is near the underpass of DTD.

The Anaheim Hojo has a kids suite w/ a bunk bed area. I'd give them a call to see if it's still available. I think there are a few others, just can't think of them right now, but when I remember I'll let you know.

Disney race are SO much fun! The Disneyland Half in 2010 was my first Half Marathon.

There will be quite a few Diva's around that weekend for you to meet before the trip.

I just registered and my young kids will do the kids dash the day before. I will be staying at the Ho Jo. I did see a half marathon rate for the Portofino. How is that compared to the Ho Jo?
