longhorns2 : if you want to nerd out, look for a ride vehicle speed; then you could extrapolate the distance. Prob easier to find a distance though.

Any thoughts on e 5k question I asked about spectators?

Also, here is what the corral placement was for the W&D. Might be similar??...
Corral Bib Range
Elite 1 - 30
A 31 - 2165
B 2166 - 4535
C 4536 - 6935
D 6936 - 9335
E 9336 - 11735
F 11736 - 14300

I have NO idea how they work the 5K with spectators since it ends in DCA and starts in DL! The only 5K I ran at WDW was through Epcot and there were not spectators in the park. On the outside they could see you, but not inside.

I think the Tink instructions or program showed 5 corrals- and over 21K runners for the entire weekend. I'm thinking there will be more like 2500 in each corral if there are only 5 corrals- or maybe the last corral is just really big? Dunno- but we should know soon!

Good point about speed- I may have to see if I can work that out. I had to do a little math with HM. Found a sight that said it covers 2 feet per second and lasts for 6:50 minutes... so I came up with 820 feet.

Can someone else check that math? Not sure I did it right... 6 min = 360 seconds. + 50 seconds = 410 So on the omnimover for 410 seconds, covering 2 feet per second = 820 feet, right?

**Tinker Bell Ride 5K** is almost complete... I found a lot of info, but need to find about 1,311 feet of ride for us to go on! It's taking us all over the park, but sticking to DL only (not DCA) I'd love to add Peter Pan but I cannot find the track distance listed anywhere! I can get the time length, but not the track length. It's getting annoying- but I will find it, oh yes, I will!
Me too about the hotel. Splurged on the DLH and that will be my motivation to haul my corpse across the finish line!

I'm so excited to do the ride 5km! You do know I'm planning on being a tag-along, right?

I am totally nerding out this morning.
Love the nerding out - you're awesome girlie!

I've been sick for the past week and haven't had time to train. Hopefully I get better soon or it will be a slow race for me.

Bib number 5328.
Not bad for a first timer, I think.

Can we put our bib numbers on the first page?

Totally expect you to tag along! Anything you wont ride? I added in Splash Mountain, then took it out, then added it back in. Time to face my fears. LOL I don't like big drops, but Splash wont be open in WDW when we are there in Feb, so it's time to be a big girl and give it a go. I think. I do have a back up ride just in case... lol I'll ride HM 2 more times if I need to chicken out.

We can do the ride 5K after lunch on Sunday! I might have a little liquid courage in me to get me through... he he he.

I have not done them before. Seems a bit pricy for pasta in my eyes. But I bet it's fun. Aren't they having characters?

Slow is the new normal! I'm going to be WAY slower than I expected, but it's still going to be fun. Good luck on training!

I'm not in charge of the editing, but that's a good idea! Wish they released the corral info for us. Probably tomorrow- or I fear they will make us wait until after Christmas! Pretty sure my corral is A... but I DO NOT belong there. Just had a good (old) 10K time to submit and had high hopes of being closer to there than I currently am. But I'm not. I'll be moving back.

I'm not a fan of Splash - the drop kills me - but I do it every trip because its my daughter's favourite ride. I'll be the one curled up trying to get under the seat crying that I'm about to die. Seriously. Its bad.

I'll have the liquid courage in me too!

OMG... maybe we are sisters separated by countries. LOL I'll have a back up plan in case it's "too cold" for us to do splash. I'm all about the ride- it's the drop that I am just a freak over as well. I bet that would be a CLASSIC picture though of both us looking like we are going to die. ha ha ha

I'm 1448. IF anyone asks- I will be stopping for lots of pictures and that shall explain why my real time does not match up to the expected time. But in all honestly, it's just going to be slow because of this leg. It's better, but not A corral fast. Not by a long shot.

I'll probably start in B or C with my friend.

The only place spectators could see the runners was halfway through the race in the esplanade in front of Disneyland. No-one was allowed in either park unless they were doing the 5K.

There were 5 corrals with 12,000 runners. For 2013 they had 14,000 runners to start with and then they added more in November. The race program for 2013 shows 5 corrals so it looks like it will be different than W&D. It looks like each corral gets larger as the paces get slower. Corral E is the largest.

Actually, I ran the Cars Land 5K and my family was allowed in the park to see me cross the finish in DCA.

They did not allow spectators in DL, but they were allowed in DCA.

DD LOVES Splash! I actually like it too as far as rides go. I think its cute and fun and I like the drop. My issue is I hate being in wet clothes. So on warm weather trips I'll ride it with her. But in January, no way!

I'll be at the Tinker Bell Half. I'm not running it. I'm working it as a volunteer. I'll be in the Expo collecting waivers and handing out bibs on Friday. On Sunday, I'll be reporting for duty at 2:00 am to set up the finish line area. Not sure what I did to draw that duty, but I'll be there.
