    I'm in for another try! Last year would've been a lot more fun had I not been in so much injury-induced pain, so I absolutely want another shot at it. :thumbsup2

    I'm still on the fence for this race. I'm not sure if I should do this one or W&D.

    I'm still trying to decide between ToT, Wine and Dine, or 2014 Half or Full Marathon. :confused3 Basically, I don't know which Disney race to do! :rotfl2:

    I am just waiting to sign up. I have done some of the other races at Disney and looking forward to this one. Trying to decided if I also want to do the 5k.

    I'm in. I enjoyed last year heat and all. Of course, I live in FL so I'm used to it.

    Just saw this on rundisney's site that tickets will go onsale Feb 12th. Also, their site states that the Disney's Villians Hollywood Bash is soldout. How did I miss this?!?!? Plz tell me there was an error!

    Disregard last part of my last post. RunDisney removed the soldout part of the Disney's Villians Hollywood Bash. Scared me for a second!! I got people who want to go with me. Does anyone have an idea of when the bash will go onsale?

    I'm not sure when it went on sale last year, but I remember buying the tickets for the Villain Bash and the tickets for the MNSSHP at the same time :)

    I'm in for this race! It's my first run disney race. I've done a few local 5k's but this is also my first longer distance race. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Does anyone know which resorts are serving as host resorts with transportation to the race? The site lists last years resorts and didn't know if they would change this year.

    I'll be there! It'll be my first Disney race. And maybe I can convince my husband that he wants to run the 5K with me. Hmm...do they sell commemorative pins for the 5K?

    This was my wife's first race of any kind, and we were joined by both daughters (30 and 22) and grandson (12). Yeah-that's special.

    I'm in with 2 friends. This was my first distance race and I can't wait to see what Disney does to improve on last year.

    I'm pretty sure I am in the the ToT! Woohoo!

    Random question - is there pre-registration for Disney Visa holders for every race? How do I find out about it (I didn't get my Disney Visa until very recently)? Thanks!

    I haven't seen anything yet, but I did use a DVC discount last year, so I'm sure there will be.
