    This race sells out faster every year!
    I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

    1 hour this year, after it opened to the general public! Craziness. But it had been open for a few weeks prior at both the WDW Marathon and Tink Expos, and also to Disney Visa holders.

    Default So fast

    couldn't believe how fast this one sold out, I got the email reminder and within 2 hours was on the computer and it was already 65% full and the Dumbo double dare was completely gone. I would have liked to give that one a whirl, maybe next year. I will need to set an alarm on my phone to go off 5 min before registration opens so I can wake up and get on the computer for next year.

    I'm in for the 10K. Can't wait! I did the half last year to get my Coast to Coast and I didn't know if I was up to another long run in the summer. I'm slow and it was getting quite warm on the streets of Anaheim. What a thrill though!

    Anybody going to the pasta party?

    Me and my husband have bibs for this. It did sell out fast. We couldnt get into Dumbo and we wanted to and now we are sorry we even bought the bibs at all. I love RunDisney but it seems that this "trend" is getting out of hand, as far as we are concerned. THe princess race, I thought, was a nightmare. I am trying to be positive and get to land and get my coast to coast without resigning but I am so tempted to not fight the crowd this time. Maybe I am just burnt out, idk. I did Goofy in Jan. and then the 5k and princess half in feb. I guess the Expo and the loss of internet and the serious crowds of people and waiting all weekend then the parks exploding with people just made it not magical at all. Ive never been to Disneyland. What is the difference in the wdw races and lands races?

    There were a lot fewer people at the DL half last year. 15,000 was the field I think. I don't know how many slots they sold this year.

    There is a lot of Anaheim street running and you run through the two parks about two miles of the start. This almost got me caught up in the sweep because I was in the next to last corral and wanted to get a few pictures. I had to really hustle once I exited the parks. The parks were crowded but once you hit the streets, the group was able to spread out. Running through Angel Stadium was amazing! The stands were filled with people yelling your name as you went by. So fun!!

    So, are there any Intercotee's that are going to be running this half marathon?

    I've signed up, as have my two sisters. It will be the first half marathon for all three of us.

    Congrats on taking the plunge! This race is really a good one to do as your first half - the course is flat, it's well organized, and it's, well, Disney! Soak it all in and enjoy the ride.

    I do love how the Dumbo medal is like the signage for the double Dumbo's in Florida.
    Not crazy about the 5K one.

    Default Disneyland 1/2 Marathon Weekend : August 30-September 1, 2013

    Did I miss it or did we not have a thread for this race going yet?
    A month away and I'm getting SO excited to race in California and to see Disneyland for the FIRST TIME!!

    Who's going?

    I got my corral placement and bib number today. I think the only corral after me is the people who run it blindfolded and backwards but I'm doing it!

    This seems real now! I HAVE to start planning!

    Happy training to all! Let us know if you'll be in Cali next month!

    Look about 6 threads down.

    Do we have enough folks to do a mini-meet?

    James (DH) looked at his stuff yesterday and he's in Corral A. hahahaha! I promise we didn't fudge anything. Maybe it's just because he's done so many already? Hey, we aren't complaining though. Earlier he's done, earlier we are out of there and I'm in the parks.

    Really Christine, with the exception of maybe a few dining reservations (yes, it's called a reservation there), don't stress.

    I still don't see a thread, but I'm only ever on my phone, so that may be why

    Anyhoo, I'd be up for a mini meet! I think after the race we may do the cheeky Hollywood bus tour, but other than that we will be at the Disneyland hotel Tues-Monday.

    I wouldn't worry about your corral area. From our experience last year (as a volunteer), the area is hugh. They use the parking area from DTD as the staging area. We passed by it on our way to the volunteer staging area at Mickey & Friends parking.

    Like Melanie said you might need a couple of reservations. We had one for breakfast at Storytellers Cafe on Labor Day and I was glad. It was a madhouse waiting to get in without one.

    I so wish things were different for me so I could be here. Guess I will just have to find a way to volunteer for WDW's races. You are so going to love Disneyland. Take it all in.

    Thanks! I'm booking some things tonight - world of color package for sure.

    This seems too easy?! You just book a room, buy tickets, and go to the parks?! No calendars? No apps? No regimented pre existing schedule 180 days out? No restrictions? This wdw girl is in shock!


    Very excited! As you may know, the doctor I work for (and go to) is te medical director at WDW runDisney events. He has since gotten his California license and is now going to be in California too staring this race!

    We are all in good hands!
