Thanks!

Registration appears to be scheduled to open on March 12, 2013.

It is possible this might change though, because the RunDisney website for this event seemingly has been changing quite a bit for the last few days (i.e. every time I go on to check, it seems to revert back and forth between current info and dates and 2012's dates.) As of right now, the site shows all of last year's information and dates, but under the Registration tab displays the registration opening date I listed above.

I really really hope we can make the trip happen so that we can run in November!
Fingers crossed!!

Here's my registration question. Do you have to create a profile before you can register? Should we be doing that now to save time when registration opens? I don't want to miss out on getting registered. Did they let people early register for Wine and Dine during WDW Marathon Weekend, or Tinkerbell, or even Princess weekend coming up I wonder? Just want to get my and DH's registration in and worried about it getting partly full before registration even officially opens. Lol.

Do you have a preferred site for the t-shirt design?

I realize this is all speculation, but does anyone suspect that this year's race will sell out quickly? I know it doesn't typically but the way registration for the Disneyland half went is making me a little nervous. I would rather not commit to this race until May.

Disneyland sold out pretty quickly last year, too. I don't know if it will make it until May, but I don't think it will go as fast as Tinkerbell and Disneyland.

It can't hurt to fill out an account beforehand. Shouldn't be required though. California races sell out much faster than Florida ones. Just like park visitors, there is a larger number of locals (or within a couple hour drive) for DL races. In addition, the runDisney brand is doing particularly well at advertising and getting people on the course, so there is increased demand. Also there are fewer races on the West Coast as opposed to Florida, therefore limiting supply. Last year they added the Tinkerbell and that drove up excitement for the DL½. This year they added the 10K & Dumbo Double Dare, increasing demand and only slightly increasing supply. The Florida races can also handle more race participants than the California ones.

Although I will be one of the ones signing up the day registration opens, I will only be doing it because of my impulsiveness, not because I feel it will sell out as quickly as the DL½.

I can't figure out how to post it here, but I found a great wine picture, added a little Mickey Mouse head and a witty saying front and back. I designed it on Zazzle.com. Just holding it there until registered. And in honor of the W.I.S.H.'ers, I added my name in WISH green!

Sounds cool! Good idea with the saying on back too!
