Update to my post below...he mapped it and it's only 1.15 miles from the McDonalds to CSR, so no so bad at all! And the part about crossing the intersection and then taking the sidewalk back the way you came...that sidewalk actually curves into the parking lot, so you wouldn't be looking for another sidewalk to take like I originally posted...you just follow it around and you're in! If you play around with Google maps, and pull up that McDonalds in the street view, you can do the "virtual walk" all the way to CSR, cross the street, and you'll see the sidewalk that goes into the property.

HA! Nice job Cripey and BF! I'll be staying at CSR so I'm good to go if I decide I must have the shoes. I'd be more inclined to stand in line to be first at KT booth!

We're at CSR too We'll probably be in line early on saturday to get BF a pair...I was lucky enough to get mine at Tink, but I said I'd wait in line with him anyway...and then use that to guilt him into giving me a foot massage before bed saturday night!

I'm doing the 5K so not sure I'll be early enough on Fri or Sat. but I promised my wonderful cancer survivor sister I would try to get her a pair! Might be a long line- but I'll try!

I think that is a GREAT idea. We are going to drive over from CBR early. I don't need to worry about the traffic so I plan on being there early but we have never done this before so I have no idea what to expect.
I'm heading to the race retreat and DH and son will "nap" in car then head to TTC for spectator viewing.

For those asking about how far the walk is from the bus to the start of the race: after the race last year a women on the bus had a pedometer that she started as she got off the bus before race and stopped when she got back to bus after race. She said it registered over 20 miles (I can't remember if it was 21 or 23). We were all joking about how we should have trained for a full marathon because of the bus drop-off/pick-up point.

I don't remember much from my 1st PHM in 2011. (I think I was so nervous that I blocked everything out.) But I did think that we walked a lot farther in 2012. Did anyone else notice that?

Yes, it does. Buses pick up from the "host resorts," which you can find by going to the Run Disney website and looking under "travel."

Would love to meet up at race retreat to meet everyone from the thread. Should we all wear some kind of name tags with " DIS thread "username" " ?

I would stand in line for your BF's shoes if he would give me a foot massage !

20 miles total...wow...anybody else thinking that their long runs should have been LONGER !?

Told DH that others have started packing....he almost had a heart attack when I told him I hadn't even gotten the suitcase out yet !

More or less, yes! I've got a pile of things sitting in a hamper for now. Can't really pack regular clothes, though, since I'm still wearing them for the next 2 weeks.

I'm in! I'll be there with a group of friends - all of us met many years ago through the DIS. But I'd love to at least say hi to the awesome Princesses on this thread!

That's a good idea. I think I will make a little tag with something like "The_Princess on the DIS" and put on my t-shirt, maybe on the back.
Does anyone know the number of RR-tickets in total??? I'm having trouble finding out how crowded it will be.
