I'm in with 2 friends. This was my first distance race and I can't wait to see what Disney does to improve on last year.

I'm pretty sure I am in the the ToT! Woohoo!

Random question - is there pre-registration for Disney Visa holders for every race? How do I find out about it (I didn't get my Disney Visa until very recently)? Thanks!

Is there any discount for AP holders or DVC members?

I haven't seen anything yet, but I did use a DVC discount last year, so I'm sure there will be.

Thanks, do you remember how much the discount was? Was there a code to use?

Not much - $10. But hey - that's a beer at the end, right? Yep, there was a code on the DVC member site to use.On the new member site, it's under Member Extras, Special Offers.Scroll down to a link for runDisney Discounts. TOT isn't there yet, though.

I'm in! I ran last year and am hoping to do it every year -- provided they don't keep messing with the date. I have a work event that is mid-end of October every year...

A friend of mine is also in -- this will be her first race distance longer than 8K and she's only walked in the past. Hoping this will be the one to get her running

I just wish registration wasn't so early. I just got home from running the Tink where I also registered for the Dumbo Double Dare, have the Princess in Feb and have a trip planned for Star Wars Weekends in May. Not to mention my AP renewal in April and registration for the 2014 Goofy that also opens in April I think. My Disney fund is taking a beating! LOL!

Debating trying this. I'm just now starting to get into shape though. It might be too soon to try it this year.... Hm.

You can do it! I started running in April last year and did ToT at the end of September

I just started working out this week, but I really wanna do this. I'm gonna start walking/running this weekend. Then do the training they have online when it gets closer. I wanna ask my coworker to go running with her, but she's super fit and I'm considered "obese." Bi don't wanna be embarrassed.

Don't be embarrassed! One of my biggest motivators is a girl I work with who is super fit and wants to run with me. I'm also "obese" but I have never felt an embarrassment... People will motivate you!

I have a question about the host resorts (I have only done Marathon Weekend and all resorts are host resorts, plus the race is in the morning/during the day).

What if you stay on a monorail resort (which aren't host resorts)? Are there buses to Epcot/Magic Kingdom to pick up the monorail? Or are you pretty much stuck either staying at a host resort and catching a bus or not staying at a host resort and renting a car?

Last year we stayed at the Poly, and there were no busses at all.

What we did, we took a cab to ESPN, where they were directing everyone who was not staying at a host resort. We then got on a bus to the staging area at HS.

After the race we just went in the parking lot at HS, and there were tons of cabs available, and by that point it was great to be away from people With so many people getting ill last year, it was nice to just be us in a cab (even though it was on the cab ride back that I joined in on the puke club lol, thank heavens I had an extra bag inside my bag check bag!!)

We ended up eating dinner at the boardwalk and then taking the bus from there. We rented a car because we were staying at Animal Kingdom. hopefully this year we can stay at a host resort and avoid that step completely
