You're headed to being perfectly Dopey and perfectly Goofy.

I signed up for Dopey and I signed DW up for the 10k.

Guess it makes no sense to wait for the Visa email now.

There is a discount with the Disney visa..I believe it's 15 for a single race and 30 for a combo...not sure how Dopey is affecting the discounts.

I am actually betting on a sell out of the 10k and Half in short order. The expected registration limits for the Dopey are 6k and the Goofy 10k. That would leave between 3-5k spots in the 10k and between 5-8k spots in the half. I would suggest to friends and family who are thinking of either of these two events to register earlier rather than later. At least keep an eye out for the countdown clocks.


Spoke to eD concerning the new time requirements and thanked them. They indicated that they plan to have more corrals starting with the 2014 event and hope to keep runners of similar speed starting closer together.

I applaud their efforts with working to smooth out the congestion.

Yes Coach, it is a good thing. I have no business in A but getting in B makes it tough to clear the field. Hopefully they can break what would have been B into a couple of groups.

I don't think we'll see anything sell out for a few months, but it'll probably be earlier than usual.

I am having trouble getting in thru Active. It says that registration is Closed. Is there a specific link to use to get in? Thanks.

Looks like Active caught the fact it was open to all. I can still get to the DVC registration link though. Am guessing it is open only to APs, DVC, and Disney Visa now.

Still no success. I am hoping that they just shut it down temporarily. Thanks for the advice.

Wow smaller corrals would be a big change. When running rock and roll DC I was noticing how they had 30+ corrals but they were 1000 people each and only spread out by a minute. It seemed like it helped with congestion.

That's actually one of the things RnR does very well. Now if they were only as runner-centric as they were a decade ago....

Yeah I had no problem booking but I just booked through Disney so I'm sure I didn't get the best deal. I was originally booking through a friends DVC property but when that was already booked and decided not to play around and just booked myself through Disney. If I waited I probably could have found a better deal but I've wanted to do this for a while and I am going with my family so didn't want to leave anything to chance.

@ram if you booked directly through Disney they will reduce your rate anytime a new deal is offered. Thanks for the info. I called Disney travel not Disney sports and was able to receive a quote.
