    Quick question regarding kid's races. My daughter will be 6 in January and my twin sons will be 4 in Feb. For Tinkerbell kids races, can I register them in the 4-6 category so they can run with their sister? Will anyone check this ad they will only be 3? Thanks for your help!!!

    For those that have stayed at the GC and completed the Tink half marathon in previous years; how easy was it to get back to your hotel room afterwards?

    GC looks somewhat close to the finish line; but part of the last mile looks to be on Disneyland Dr (if they go along the same route as last year), so I'm not sure how you'd back-trace right after the race. Or, if you'd be forced to walk up Walnut St. and cut over at the DLH.

    The fact that the starting line looked to be right outside the hotel made me happy - though in reality I'm not sure how close it would be; or if I can even afford to stay there.

    TIA

    5k will be Mr. Smee, Capt. Hook for the 10k and Vanellope for the 1/2.

    Really easy to get back to the room. We come out in the area b/w PPH and DLH, so you just walk to the stoplight across from GC to cross the street. I've cut through GC to get to DTD and my hotel the past 2 years, have been super easy.

    Newbie w/ Tink weekend. So technical question.

    Doing 5&10k only. Planning on staying onsite. Will I we done (metal,photos,goofing off) in time to make EE? If not seems silly to pay for onsite, right??
    What time does EE start that weekend?
    (I'm not going to be fast on these races... If that helps!! I hope to stay a few steps ahead of he sweeps :) )

    EE (Magic Mornings) are usually cancelled on race weekends, so no need to pay the $$ to stay onsite if that's your only reason to stay in a Disney hotel. However, the Disney hotels are closer to the starting line than most other hotels. We stay over on Harbor in a non-Disney place. We consider the walk over to the start to be our warm-up for the races.

    Is the Holiday Inn on Walnut going to be more of a walk than a hotel on Katella? It seems like it would be an easy walk down to the DLH but I wasn't sure if part of it would be blocked off.

    Fri DL opened at 9, DCA I think was 10. Sat/Sun DL was 8-12 and DCA was either 9-10 or 10-9.

    I've never stayed in Walnut so can't help w/ which is easier. But if the course is the same as last year, we cut through the DTD/Mickey parking lot to Walnut on Magic Way, so that gate should be open race morning to cut through.

    I'll be dressing up too but just a tutu over my regular running clothes probably. There is just something fun about running in a tutu. Oh, and a tiara!

    So excited! I registered last year and injured my leg and was unable to run. I'm pretty psyched to actually do it this year!

    Usually the park isn't ready to open in time for an EE on the day of the races so it gets moved to Monday I believe.
