As expected, I'm near the beginning of the cutoff for C. I will be towards the front. Any of you in C, see me, say hi. I will post a pic of the costume later, it's on my facebook page, just need to get the link.

I know for sure, via their FB posts some weeks back, that Hippie Runner and Running Princess were "uninvited", for lack of a better word. Hippie Runner in particular voiced their displeasure on FB in a post saying basically that runDisney was forcing out alot of smaller, repeat vendors in favor of letting in large corporate vendors and giving them more space...and evidently there was no sort of discussion or choice given to the smaller vendors. I was really bummed...I buy from Hippie Runner every time! And why they chose to boot RUNNING PRINCESS from this expo in particular is beyond me! I'm betting the new addition of a pretty large New Balance booth was partly to blame. I'm not sure if there were others that will not be returning...I just know of those because I follow them on FB and saw their posts.

Hello! I'm doing my first half marathon at the Princess, feeling a bit nervous about it now!

I'm in corral H, I think because when I registered I put down my time as 3.30. I'm now expecting to finish in about 3 hours, is there any chance of moving corrals (I haven't done any races so no proof of time) or not at this stage?

The more ppl post in this thread the more anxious I become! So many questions being asked that I didn't even think about, like the sweepers, or as I call it, the van of shame. Ahh! So I'm in D and my bff is in F. Did anyone go thru with making a race retreat meet?

No meeting yet, but I'll wear something that indicate the DIS and then hope I run into some of you :-)

I am in C ....woot woot.

For those who randomly get placed, I think they must have to take some of the people who don't turn a time in and just disperse them among the other corrals since there are probably more of them than the timed spacing of porjected pace. Its not guaranteed, but it happens. If you are not comfortable with your corral, thinking you are too slow, you can either start in the back and stay to the right - be courteous or move back to a different corral. Consider it some extra pixie dust!

On Rundisney it says that there will be a 20 min walk to the start but people on Facebook are saying that it's more like a 45 min walk. What's your take on that???

Btw, I don't know what I would do without you all, answering all of my questions. THANK YOU :-)

It's been 20 and its been 45! Last year was longer.

Joan mentioned they are calling corrals by letter now so that might help! "Corral a and B only please head to the corrals". I hope that's what they are doing. Should help spread out the congestion.

I think RunDisney scattered pixie dust my way. I will "C" some of you at the back of corral C!

I figure the time difference is probably due to when those people started heading over. If they get out of the staging area early and ahead of the masses, I imagine they can get over there faster. If you're in the thick of it, it takes longer...stop and go, stop and go...it's like bumper to bumper rush hour traffic, only with tutu's and tiaras

I am 11913 and DH is 11914 and we are proud to be in corral "E" ...doing my best to do a little rhyme ! we self reported a 2:52 time and have not submitted a proof of time from a race but did register day one it was open so maybe that's how we got a little further up than most.

All in all I'm taking the advice of "Joan" and not getting hung up on my corral placement. The way we are pacing right now it is exactly where we should be. I would like it if they had us line up in exact number order but realize that is not going to happen so we will try to be in the front of the corral so we don't have to do much weaving.

Moving along... in the dark... like cattle. It's already making me claustrophobic!

Seriously, I don't understand how they came up with these placements - how on earth do I end up in C with a 2:45:00 estimate and no proof submitted of anything?

I guess I'm happy: less time waiting = less time for my muscles to tighten up in the cold. And I'll start waaaaay in the back, far behind all the men-folk. But I can't help but feel a bit perplexed...
Hey you got company at least! I'm also in C. Just stick to the side And keep out of the faster runners way and you'll be ok!
