So a couple random questions about this year. I'm guessing there aren't answers at this point.

1. Do you think the monorail will be running early enough to get to the 10k start? In prior years they run it early on Saturday and Sunday but not on Friday.
2. Are they going to have to change the finish area for the Marathon? It seems adding the people to give out the Dopey medals to what's already going on could make it crowded-er.

If anyone finds out anything for sure about the AP early registration/discount you should let me know. :-P

I just got my pass a few months back and I'm still figuring all the stuff out. :-/

We don't know any definites about the 10K yet, but the official press relase states that the 10K will be at the Wide World of Sports. My guess is that they tweek the marathon route a bit and have the 20 mile timing mat in the Wide World of Sports. Then they can use it at the start of the 10K and the last 6.2 of the marathon will be the 10K route. If this is the case then the monorail won't be transporting people to the start of the race on Friday. As far as the marathon finish area, they will probably just add a Dopey area to the Goofy tent area.

Obviously, all of this is speculation.

It does? The version I have near the end of this blog post says it will be at Epcot: http://***********************/rundis...afraid-to-ask/

"After the Disney Family Fun Run 5K on Thursday, runDisney’s new Walt Disney World 10K, a 6.2-mile timed event, takes place Friday, at Epcot. Runners completing the race will receive a Minnie Mouse inspired medal."

Here is the official press release

http://disneysportsnews.com/2013/03/...athon-weekend/

If you scroll down to the bottom they list all of the event dates, time and location. The 10K is slated to begin at 5:30 at Wide World of Sports. The breakfast is at Epcot so definitely will finish there. The start is just my speculation.

Yep, that's exactly the same press release as I put in my blog post... I'll be interested to see if you are right. It certainly makes sense, logistics-wise, but I really hope you are wrong. Since I will have run 4 Wine & Dine's by then plus marathon 2013, I'd like to cover some new territory instead of the same old thing!

I wonder what the hours are going to be for the expo on Wednesday. Normally I arrive early on Thursday like 9am but this puts a cramp in that as I will have to fly in Wednesday afternoon/evening due to school.

I've seen this. The official press release info doesn't match up. The only reason I think the official press relase info may be correct is because all of it is so specific and the 10K is the only race showing a different location starting point. So it seems like it had to be specifically noted. The runDisney website has the start/finish designation for all the races. They may have missed the detail that the start is in a different place than the finish. The race description still applies to the course if it is the last 6.2 of the marathon. Though I would think they would add something in about the Studios too. I know nothing. I'm just speculating and I wouldn't be suprised if my speculation is wrong. Until they release a course map we really don't know.

Do I just need to go on the RunDisney website on Apr 3rd to use the early passholder discount or is the another website? Any help would be great. Thanks

There's been conflicting info out there. One blog I followed indicated APs would be receiving an email with a link and password to register. But when I called I was told I would register via the AP Landing website. However, I haven't been able to gain access. I'll post as soon as I see anything. Although, I'm planning to register for the RWC.

Is there a web portal for annual passholders? I don't see anything when I search for it on google and there is nothing on the back of our passes.
