Thanks but I am referring to Park tickets, not the Villains Bash. The process is similar but it's not allowing me to view park tix. You have to use the link they send in the registration confirmation, which does not appear to be working

Ah, sorry!

But, I just tried that going directly through the runDisney website, and it appears to work - or at least it did for me up to the point of picking what type of tickets. For this, from the rundisney.com website:
- use the 'Travel' drop-down at the very top of the page, and select 'Walt Disney World'
- Scroll down to "Travel Packages for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler Weekend" and click that
- Scroll down a little again and select "Online Ticket Store" under 'SPECIALLY PRICED THEME PARK TICKETS'
- that will open a new window or tab where you need to enter the 'Event Code' that is found in your 'Registration Confirmation' email (I don't know if I should simply list that code here or not...?), and then click Login
- there is then a screen for arrival and departure dates for your trip
- scroll down, accept the disclaimer, and 'Continue'

On the next screen I was able to scroll down to arrive at:
Multi-Day Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets

I didn't go past that point, but perhaps this work-around will help?

That solution worked for me! Also, just saw where you can split payment and use Disney Gift Cards. You can only use 2 forms of payment online, but wondering if you call in you can use more than one.

When I first tested, I used 10/20 as a departure date, and that didn't work for me either. I think the problem is that the tickets are supposedly only good for a certain amount of time before and after the event; per the disclaimer: "These specially priced Theme Park tickets must be purchased in advance and are valid during the specific dates of the event and for a limited period of time before and after the event." When I put in 10/10 as a departure date, it worked fine. edit: Just a guess, but perhaps the tickets can be used up to 1 week before or after?

I'm an annual passholder, so I haven't actually used these tickets, but hopefully someone else can chime in as to what the exact limitations are on use of the tickets before and after the race (i.e. how many days?). I don't see that information listed anywhere I have looked.

runDisney tickets -

I'm an AP holder, so I'm clueless, but I asked my friends who bought tix through runDisney for Princess: they report that A. they're substantially cheaper than any other option, by about 20% off regular price, B. they think there was a 14-day date restriction, and C. they are not eligible for upgrade.

Hope that helps some!

when i priced out a five-day ticket for my sister, it was around a $22 savings.

i haven't bought it yet because i want to see if any other special offers come out for our dates. my kids and i are planning to get APs.

Characters/Course Map for 5K

I am doing the 5K. Does anyone remember what characters were out last year?

Also, I have not been able to find a course map for the 5K. Does anyone know where to find it, even if it is last year's?

Thanks,

I don't know about characters for the 5K, but I have last year's 5K course map from the Official Race Program. Just trying to figure out the best way to post it though... Should have it up sometime soon once I figure out how to do it, unless someone else is able to post it first!

It was so nice getting dropped off first after a long day and if the bus filled up at Sports first then it didn't stop at the others. I'm not sure if that happens all the time or it just worked that way when I was there, so correct me if I'm wrong, but it was definitely nice!
I'm sure I will be the same way. I will be a bucket of nerves on race night.

Hmmm now you have me thinking I should switch to Sports. I agree with you that it's so nice not to have to wait on the bus or deal with the full busses. that's one of the reasons why I like POP so much..as of right now it's still the only stop on the run (Doesn't include AoA yet). but since this is a budget trip, the All stars are cheaper than POP so I went with Movies. Gotta think about switching now.

Thanks,

Just saying hi! I am only doing the 5k as well. I have done a couple of the princess 1/2 marathons and some of the 5ks as well, i would have liked to do the 10 miler, but i have my dd12 with me, and she would not be able to hack a 10miler!

I am writing down the park hours now and getting my thoughts together to decide on dining! (My fav part.. ) Right now my schedule looks like this:

Thurs Oct 3 - arrive
Friday Oct. 4 - a.m. emh at DHS then off to the expo - and hoping for MNSSHP at night??
Sat. Oct 5 - 5k day then hanging out by pool and DTD
Sun. Oct 6 - MK
Mon. Oct 7 - AK
Tues. Oct 8 - Epcot
Weds. - leaving.

Now... i gotta decide on food. For us, Poly breakfast at Ohana's is gonna be post - race. that's about the only thing i am sure of.. ah... life should be full of such hard decisions to make!

What time are you going to try and do your post 5K ADR? I am doing the 5K too and trying to figure out what time I would book an ADR for -- still debating if I want late bkfst somewhere or early lunch somewhere.
