    Officially registered for the Half!!:thumbsup2

    I am doing the 10K over Labor Day weekend and will submit that for my time. I hope to be able to move-up in corrals! I will be running with my sister (a non-Diser) and this is her second Tink!

    I am soooo excited!!

    As of now I'm registered for just the Half. I might add the 10K in the next few days...I'll post again if I add it! Trying to convince one of my friends to join me. We're doing a half relay in October and that will be her first race. She's a disney lover so I know she'd love doing a 10K at Disneyland!

    I have to laugh at myself- I was crazy Friday morning trying to register the second it opened... Now 8 hours after regular registration opened, it looks like I would have been fine...I guess I didn't need to wake up at 5:45 am on my first day of my Hawaii vacation!! Who knew!!
    Still excited- now its time to think costumes!! I registered for 2 races, so I better get 2 costumes :)

    Hi everyone! Can I join this thread too? :-). I signed up for the half along with my sister, her husband, and my husband. This is my first ever half marathon and I'm nervous but excited at the same time. My sister and I were going to sign up as a team. Is there any benefit to that or would keeping it as individuals be just as good?

    I'm jumping in too. I'm usually a lurky loo but I think I might have a few questions since I've never done anything like this before. My two sisters and I are running together. I signed up my DD to run the 200M dash too. No idea if she will actually do it or not.

    Where is everyone staying during the Tink half? We are DVC members, but sadly no room are available for those dates at the Villas. Any suggestions on where to stay and when I should book a room?

    Added you guys to the list!

    Added you. For the teams, it's all a personal preference. I think the only difference is you have a team bib and I think a sash or something. They might list the results differently, but that's all.

    Got you down. Are you doing the full or the ½ w/ Nike?

    I'm at BW Stovall's across from the finish. They might have some rooms, but check them out fast; I think someone on the WISH thread said they might already be sold out. If you're going to stay at a resort hotel, the cheapest way to go is through Get Travel ~ they're the travel company for the DL races. If their site isn't updated yet, it will be w/in the next week. I think pretty much anywhere around the resort is good. If you stay on Katella b/w DL Drive and Harbor it's a short walk to the staging area and from the finish; it's in the parking lot of PPH. And if you're on Harbor, you can either go down to Katella to the race area or cut through DTD. I stayed at BW Park Place which is on Harbor at the crosswalk to the resort and cut down DTD and through the Grand Californian to the start area, it was really easy. But rooms are open and w/ MLK weekend as well, don't wait too long. :goodvibes Also almost all of the hotels offer AAA card discounts so make sure you use it if you have it!

    Forgot to mention, the ½'s already at 92% so if you're thinking about registering, jump on it before it sells out! The 10k is at 51%, 5k is 55% and the kid's races are at 62%.

    We are at BW Stovalls Inn. I think you can still get rooms through last minute travel.com. The hotel is very close to the start and finish line.

    I just cancelled a room at Stovalls so there might be one available. Posted this on the WISH thread also.

    Thank you I just scored two rooms for at Stovalls for $68.00 + tax a night. :) I've stayed at Stovalls twice before, so I'm happy with this choice!
