    I did not have a proof of time when I registered for Princess, but now I have one and I'm sure it will move me up a corral or so. I am currently in E, but have a 10 miler time of 1:39:52 (~9:54 pace), so I hope to move up.

    Do I just bring the print out of the race results? It just looks like a spreadsheet from the race organizer's website... will this be enough?

    Thanks in advance!

    That's all you need. You could also have the race results website pulled up on your phone as a back-up

    That is what I did when I brought a proof of time into the expo. It was just a printout from the race results site with my name and time. Didn't have any problems getting moved up.

    if it is not too late, you can email the new result to trackshack. check your registration confirmation.

    I did this for the marathon. I brought a printout and highlighted my name and time. The volunteer processing it thanked me for doing that, as it sped up the process a bit.

    I have read several people saying how nice the CMs were about changing corrals for you. I must have gotten a dud at marathon weekend. I had proof that I knew based on WISHers was good enough for E, but was in G. Well the girl told me it was good enough for F but she didn't have F stickers. Then she proceeded to tell me that F and G were the same anyway. (Huh? 7 minute start difference). I asked since they didn't have F stickers if I could get E which she refused to do. I was truly upset and walked away and started to cry. My BIL took my number and my proof and time and he and DH stood in line again. They got a different CM and with little discussion she put an E sticker on my bib. So the moral of my little story here is to try again if you don't get the Disney magic you need! I wanted that cushion so I could take pictures and maybe ride EE. (This was for the full - and I did ride EE!)

    Can you use your run times from a triathlon, such as an Olympic distance (10k) or a Half Ironman (half marathon)?

    This is good to know. I did the Goofy challenge this year and was in the dead last corral. I didn't complain because I didn't expect to be anywhere else but next year I plan on doing a whole lot better.
    I will print out my best results of any marathon or half marathon I gather? I guess it doesn't matter which race...whichever has the best results so I can move up at least to E or something.

    If they don't change requirements a 10k or longer will suffice. They have a chart that predicts a marathon or 1/2 finish time based on your race distance and time.
