Let's hear it for ressies! We'll be staying 1 night at ASMu (we have a free night from a previous stay) before moving over for 11 nights at CSR.

Count me in too. I'll be turning 40 at the time and can't think of a better mid-life crisis! I'll be running the 5K with DW, DD, and two good friends and then on to my first Goofy!

I already booked AKV at Jambo House and can't wait!

Please take my name off the first page. I decided to do the Space Coast in December and no way I can do back to back Florida trips.

I am 99% sure I am in. We have gone to marathon weekend every year since 2007 and various other disney races. We where going to take a year off since Goofy 10th Ann is in 2015 so Goofy is a for sure in 2015 but can't stand the thought of not going back in 2014 but not sure what race I am in for yet. Either the full or half. Did Goofy in 2010 and Dopey in 2013 so thinking just going for fun this time and sticking with the half but would love to do the marathon....decisions decisions..

Made our reservations at BLT... we are going Jan 9-11, then getting on the Fantasy after the half. Do you think we'll have enough time?

You should have plenty of time depending on how fast you run. Race starts at 5:30 with Corral A. I was in C and stopped at every character picture stop and took it easy and was done by 8:00. Got back to BLT by 8:30 and in the tub shortly after. We were at the parks by 9:30.

It only takes an hour to get to the ship. If you are taking the ME, you should look at a pickup after 10am or so. Unless your Port Arrival time is later, then schedule around that. Enjoy your cruise. We love the Fantasy.

I'm in!!!!

I just booked OKW for Jan. 8 - Jan. 12.

This will be my first FULL marathon. I've run three halfs before.

If all goes well, my wife will run the half, which will be her return to distance running after knee surgery a couple of years ago. Before the surgery, she had run one full and several halfs.

Plus, I'm hoping that my kids will run in some of the kids' runs! All this and I hope to hit theme parks. Can't wait!

Add me to the list - I'm in! Did my first half this year at Tinkerbell - it was awesome! WDW 2014 here I come Going to the do the Half and hopefully my big sis will be joining me. (Her pace is faster than me so I have a lot of work to do in the next 11 months!) Then DH and I plan to do the 5k together. Just made our ressies at Saratoga Springs. Hoping to move over to Boardwalk when we hit the DVC 7 month mark. Yay

I broke my toe over the weekend so I am sidelined for a couple of weeks... After having to defer the last race due to a different injury, I sure am glad we still have several months!!

I am planning to do the goofy and rent DVC points. Does anyone know how quickly the Boardwalk Villas fill up? I was hoping to get a 2br but may not be able to book until 7 months prior.

I've put in for my vacation time. I know it's far in advance, but if my boss approves it, I won't have to worry.

My reservations have been finalized. My DW is doing the half and I'm going to join her for that and go Goofy and do the marathon too. It'll be a great experience to cross that finish line with her!

I plan to do the marathon!

I LOVE Disney, but don't have the opportunity to go very often and I knew almost nothing about the race weekends. A friend of mine mentioned doing the Disneyland 1/2 at some point so it was in the back of my mind. I actually despise running (how ironic that I am going to try the marathon ) but looked up the info on RunDisney just for fun. I had convinced myself the 1/2 marathon was doable, but then I saw the 2013 course for the full and I just HAD to do it.

I might be crazy, but we'll see!
