I am planning on doing the 5K that weekend.

I'm in! It will be my second F*W half marathon 2012 was my first.
I'm thinking about it. I am doing my first Disney or any race in Feb-the Disney's Princess Half Marathon. Come June I will be living in Celebration so travel is not an issue. Just unsure how I feel about a night race.
Dates for the F&W festival as well as the Wine and Dine half marathon are posted on Disney.com! The race dates listed are 11/8 and 11/9/13.
I am considering doing this race. I want to to the Half in Disneyland then the W&D for my coast to coast. So far I have ran two 5k and one 10k.
I am in and so is DW. Unless the week moves, because the following weekend we have Florida at home.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Did W&D in 2012 and doing Marathon in 11 days. You can definitely use it as a training run.
Yes, it is at night. Yes, the first year was bad.
But every year has been an improvement.
Plan on being slower that normal because:
1) Even at night in December it is warm.
2) It's hard to stay off your feet all day at Disney, I had 10 miles on my pedometer by race start.
It's a great race. AK and DHS are fun to run through. The Osborne lights will be up. How's that for inspiration.
I really want to do this but we have a cruise the very next week. I will be on the rail until the dates are final and I can price travel.
I want the WnD to be my first half.
Does anyone know if I can use my time from a 7 mile mini to better my corral and what that time would have to be in order to help?
I don't mean to sound stupid, but where did you find that info? I was just looking on RunDisney and didn't see anything listed.
DH and I are headed down to do a couples weekend with friends but I'd love to squeeze in a race. Only problem is they are non-runners.
I could possibly do the 5K with DH, it wouldn't take a huge amount of time away from the friends.
Is the race at night like Everest?
I am all in! I'll be running the half marathon, and I can't wait!
This will be my first runDisney race, and my first (or second if I do another one this summer) half. I'll run with my brother-in-law, once I convince him! Most importantly, the race will be on my birthday! What an awesome present!
My sister and I will be running in this one! We just ran our first 5k this past October! If the 1/2 marathon doesn't kill us, we'll run a full marathon! The 5k was initially my plan and I almost quit but I couldn't let my sister show me up. Now look where we're headed! Me and my big mouth!
OMG I am totally in! Ran it in 2011 and loved it!!
Then ran the 2012 Princess, and the 2012 Disneyland Half, and the Wine & Dine remains my favorite.
Hope to also do the Disneyland Half in 2013 for my second coast to coast. Yay!
DH and I are throwing around the idea of trying this. It will be the first 1/2 for both of us. For those who had done this, any words of advice or encouragement? Anything a first timer (for any Run Disney race) should know?
My wife and some of her co workers plan on running in the Wine and Dine in 2013. I would have but ended up dislocating my knee cap and tearing up my knee pretty good. I guess they will have a cheer section now. They are going to run the Mini 500 Festival half marathon here in Indianapolis as a warm up run for the Wine and Dine.
2012 W&D was my first half- I loved it. we are definitely going 11/6-11/11. if the date stays the same I will run it again. last time I did the 5 k in the morning. I will skip that in 2013. WAY too long of a day since we couldn't stay out of the parks.
typing on my kindle and not doing well with caps I see
The dates are not posted on RunDisney. I found them on the main Disney website.
I am in! I did the princess half in 2010 and castaway cay 5k in April 2012 we coincidentally have a trip planned during this race so I can't not so it, right!? We booked before we saw the date!
I am prepared for an exhausting weekend. We are DVC and staying club level at AKL... And planning the sunrise safari on the morning of the 10th. Eek! We don't have a choice on dates
Can't wait to get to know some fellow runners!
If it is the 8-9th does the half take place the night of the 9th if so will the expo be open for packet pickup that morning? I work for a department store and are not allowed vacation time in November or December, so I was hoping to fly out the 8th at night or 9th in the morning and back the 10th
Yes- the half was at 10pm Saturday night this past year.
