Happy to help! There was nothing in the DVC member site, but I took a chance on using the code for Expedition Everest Challenge and it worked!

Hi all, we're planning to sign up for the run and I noticed in the email it mentioned discounts are available for 3-day park hopper passes and stays in POR. We're planning to stay 10/5 - 10/12. Any idea if there is a way to get these discounts for doing the run but for a partial portion of a longer stay? Figured I'd ask here but have no problem calling if needed. Thanks!

I think you can book through rundisney for your entire stay. The discount fades as you add days though. I know in looking at park tickets it was great for a few days... But the more days ended up looking closer to actual gate prices

Run In Costume

You absolutely should run in costume if you participate this year.

I ran the race last year but did not dress up...and I was kicking myself the whole night. There were a lot of people dressed up and some really clever costumes.

I am a big fan of this race...it was one of my favorites last year...although I have to admit that I think a 50% increase in the price is extreme

Check out my race recap for this race

There seems to be a limit to the number of nights you can book with the runDisney deal. When I called today to book a 7-night stay they said I had one night too many. I ended up booking room only through the regular reservation line. I think it was a $7/night difference, so not exactly a deal breaker. For the park tickets, I think only the first three days + park hopper are entitled to the 40% discount... any beyond that and it is at a regular price (not sure exactly the formula that is used).

I could be wrong on the above info, but this was my experience today. I am waiting to book park tickets in case I get FD, A girl can dream!

Anyone else have any intel on this?

Just registered!! I'm in!! Also ordered party tix for my family

Last year my costume was minimal- I was Minnie Mouse- polka dot sparkle skirt, black tank, yellow sneaks, and ears/bow on headband

This year, planning something a little different- going back to the 80's and I'm going as Rainbow Brite I already have the blue sparkle skirt, and rainbow knee socks that I am going to cut the feet out and wear as leg warmers, so when I get hot I can just whip them off! Need to find a top the right color, and a few more doo-dads and I should be set

In training news, for my easy 30 minute run tonight I ran 2.5 mi!! Usually on my easy 30 nights I run about 2.3 or 2.4, so I shocked myself that I managed 2.5!! Felt awesome

RAINBOW BRITE...OMG...LOVE IT!!! That is such a cute idea! Although the Minnie costume from last year sounds cute too. I thought about doing Minnie for ToT, but I think I want to do a Villian instead. Now that registration is complete its time to start thinking about it.

Aww thanks guys

Last year I decided on Minnie Mouse because that was my absolute fave Halloween costume as a kid!! If I remember I will take a pic of my scrapbook page that shows me as a kid as Minnie, and me running in the race as Minnie! It is super cute

So, keeping with the whole 80's vibe, that is when I decided on Rainbow Brite Then in 2014 for the Tink, I'm going as Tink (duh LOL), and for the 2014 Wine and Dine for my coast-2-coast I am seriously thinking of Sailor Moon!! (Isn't it so sad I have my costumes planned out that far?? LOL)

I hope to have a little time this weekend to play around with my rainbow socks- I haven't wanted to do anything until I was officially registered
