    I'm in!

    This will be my hopefully 4th Run Disney race by then! (TOT 2012, then Princess and Disneyland in 2013).

    I only like running in races at Disney, too bad it's so expensive and I want to do ALL of them!

    Ugh tell me about it! I'm trying to make all of my race trips short, weekend trips at value resorts but then I see the room-only discounts and all of a sudden need to stay at poly :rotfl:

    I don't think it is possible to ever be alone during any Disney race no matter who you are.

    I really hope for my DH and I to be able to do this one for the first time in 2014! I agree that Disney races are the best!

    I have to wait and decide on this one. As much as I want to, I also want to run the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon and it was the same weekend. Waiting for them to announce the 2013 date which I really hope doesn't conflict!

    I completely agree with this! The only reason I finished the ToT 10 Miler was a group of ladies that I ran with that told me I could :)

    I am still deciding on this one. I would LOVE to do it again since I had such a great time at this past one...but it would depend on several factors. So I am going to have to wait until much closer to registration before making a decision.

    I certainly thinking of running again next year. Ran my first half at this year's W&D. Did not make the time I wanted to due to several factors. Now that I know what to expect on the course and not to do leading up to the race, I know I can do better next year.

    My wife and I will probably not decide until sometime after registration opens next year.

    I think I'm in!

    Have been looking at a family trip to WDW in 2013 and keep moving the dates back. After reading the reports and seeing how great this race looks, we finally decided we would give it a go!

    Probably just me running the half and the family doing the 5K together.

    I'm tentatively planning on Marathon or Goofy in 2014, so this would just be another training run, right? ;)

    I am OVERLY excited for this race. It will be my 6th or 7th half, and I've also completed one full. But, it will be my FIRST Disney race. Please keep us updated on when you think registration will begin. I also have some questions as to when I should start booking the trip. Do I wait til registration, or plan ahead? Are there good packages that encompass the race, food, parks, and resort? Anyway... Thanks for the info in advance...

    Personally, I would wait until registration opens to make all your travel plans. But, if I was to choose one Disney race to recommend as your first, this would be it! Definitely wouldn't last year, but this year was so much better!:thumbsup2 Congratulations on finishing all of your other races!
