I just called runDisney and they said visa card holders are on the list for early registration along with DVC and AP. She said the emails will be going out tomorrow and registration opens at noon. I know information can be unreliable at times, but I really hope that this is correct.

The new pacing requirements were not an April fools joke. I went and looked as if to register for the Runner's World Challenge. It is indeed a change in policy.

I should have said corral placement proof of time. I misspoke.

Proof of Time

If you believe you will finish the Half Marathon in less than 3 hours and 15 minutes and/or the Marathon in 6 hours and 30 minutes or less, proof of time is required for start corral placement.
Please reference the Race Pacing Chart at www.rundisney.com.

Odd, considering 7:00 is the max (16:00/mile). Probably does a major disservice to people who fall in the 5-6 hour range (12:00 - 14:00) if they don't submit a proof of time and end up with the "walkers" in the last corral.

That's a much more lenient policy than I thought they had.

Isn't it the opposite of lenient? Used to be you could claim to do a 5:00 marathon and get moved into a better corral without proof of time. Now you have to submit proof for anything better than 6:30. That seems a ton more strict.

I thought the policy was you had to submit proof of anything faster than 5:00

That was apparently the old policy. New is proof required for better than 6:30. So it's more strict. More people will have to submit proof of time.

Far more strict.

I honestly don't think the corral change is a huge deal, other than you have to go with the time you register with.

First time doing a disney run for wife and I, and we were so excited for the Goofy Challenge until they announced the Dopey Challenge and we knew we had to do that instead. Does anyone know what time the registration opens on the 9th? We're terrified it's going to sell out instantly and we won't get in!!!
