    Most likely. You have to reserve a spot for one of the dates on 10/8. I would imagine that the available slots would go quickly.

    I got the email about this today, and read all that is on the AP site, but one thing is missing: there is no indication where I should go to register (on the 8th). Do you suppose it's the same page on the AP site?

    I really don't want to miss this, and I know it's going to fill quickly, so it'd be gerat to know where to go, eh? ;)

    Anyone know how this has been done in the past?

    Even without the preview that weekend is already crazy- Wine and Dine Half, 5K, Children's Miracle Golf, last weekend of F&W, and some artist thing at DTD.

    We will be there for the half marathon, so I am excited to at least know that I will be there, but really....did it have to be on a weekend, an already very busy weekend? Why not during the week?

    We are in the same boat, but today I keyed in the numbers on the back of the voucher, and it was accepted and now I see the option to register for the preview tomorrow. Let's see if that works.

    Yes. We ordered online. On the passholder site there is page to add your passes, one of the options was to add a voucher. not sure if it will let me register for the event tomorrow, but it is worth a shot.

    The registration was pushed back to Oct. 15 because they're having technical difficulties. :(

    Yes, there's a major upgrade to the WDW computer system taking place today and tomorrow, probably the reason for the delay.

    I also read where D23 members are also eligible to register for the preview.

    Mad D23 got in and they hung AHP out to dry. Nov 3rd overlap with Early/Late slots between AHP/D23.
