    My husband and I are IN!! We had to defer our registration from the 2013 to the 2014 due to injury, so we are particularly excited! Our first 1/2 and first race with Disney! Thanks for starting this thread!

    My DH and I are in. And soooo excited first trip to Disney without our kids:cool1:, one will be married and the other he thinks he is too old(can you believe it) at 19 to love Disney. When he really grows up he will love it again.

    Boy I hope so. Totally bummed I'm not running it this year. I'll be at the world for a conference next weekend and couldn't pull off going two weekends in a row.
    Does anyone remember when the full sold out this year? I kept stalling and then it was too late to register.

    Don't quote me exactly, but I think October (or even before), because at that time I was trying to transfer down from full to half because of my injury, but I couldn't because I think it was sold out already.

    I'm in for 2014! I couldn't swing this year because I had a baby in May and I wanted to do the full or Goofy, and wouldn't have had enough time to train, but I'm definitely in for the Goofy next year!

    Can't wait to get registered! :goodvibes

    I think me...FINALLY! planning a honeymoon to Jamaica in early Jan, so i casually mentioned to the fiancee how great it would be if we did a few days in Disney before heading down there, since there are so many flights to the islands out of Florida. He was like great, idea! And then, I was like oh hey...isnt the marathon weekend early Jan? Would you care if I ran one of the races? and....he agreed! rather easily! As much as I want a mickey/goofy medal, I'll probably just do the half. Since it starts so early, I'll probably be done around 7:30, before he even wakes up, and would have a pretty minimal impact on the overall trip (versus the marathon which takes longer, and the recovery time would make it tougher to do adventure type excursions once we get to Jamaica)

    I am hoping to be back at WDW for the full next year. Hopefully training will go better and I won't have to ditch the race in the middle of October.

    Still mad that Tinkerbell and the WDW race are one week apart again.
