    Woo Hoo! Thanks for this info! This was my first Disney race and my first half and I loved every minute of it! My daughter is going to do the 5K this year, which means I'll be doing the 5K in the am and the half at night (and spending a whole lot of $$$ to register!) Good thing we have Grandma to stay with!

    Would love to have a meet up if anyone else is going!

    My sister has just talked me into doing this race to get our Coast to Coast. The only thing that is making me hesitate is the cost. I have two questions.

    1.) Are there any discounts on room/tickets for runners? If so, any idea of how much?

    2.) If I booked through Magical Journeys, which I've never used before, would they be able to get those discounts applied?

    Thanks!

    I know there are discounts offered. I think once registration opens, there will be information on this.

    I'm not sure about booking through MJ, but would suggest contacting them to find out.

    Have fun! Maybe we'll see you there!

    We're going to be there that week, but leaving on the day of the running events. I'm considering the 5K, as I can be back at BLT by 9 a.m. and we just have to be at the Auto Train in Sanford at 2 p.m. Hmmm. I have to think about this, but I only have until March 12th to make my decision.

    The Wine and Dine half is a lot of fun! It's been my favorite of all so far.

    As for a discount on the run, I don't know about MJ being able to discount your run- those seem to be more thru runDisney at registration with a code (DVC offers a code, usually about $10 off)

    For room discount, they do offer a room and richer package, but I would definitely check with MJ to see if get can beat it first- they would know the best deal going!

    Registration day is getting close! Does anyone know what time the registration opens up? I signed up for a reminder email, but I want to make sure I'm ready. I think that when I signed up for the Disneyland Half the registration time was noon (Eastern), 9:00 (Pacific). Is it the same for this one?

    I'm sure it's the same. So funny, no one has really ever worried about exactly what time registration has opened in the past, until the Disneyland Half craziness. I certainly understand wanting to be ready, but with the higher capacity races at WDW, I don't think it's as much of a concern. Boy, I could certainly be wrong though!

    Thanks for letting me know. I feel a bit better hearing that. The first one that I registered for was the Disneyland Half so that's my only experence with these. I was thinking it was going to be a challange to get a spot.

    My sister and I both registered yesterday. There was some question if we'd be able to go because of finances but we made the commitment.

    I registered on Tuesday for me and DH to run the 5K. Now I just have to start training and lose some weight because I never have (and swear that I never will) run a race as a Clydesdale.

    Default Running at night

    The Wine & Dine will be my first half-marathon and my first big race at night. How do you adjust your training/ eating habits to run a night time race? Not so nervous about the distance, just the time of day.

    Good for you!

    I'm not an expert but I'm trying to add in night-time training at least once a week and plan to do a few of my long runs (over 10 miles) at night.

    The ToT 10 miler last year was my first long night time race and I altered my eating habits to mimic a morning run. I stopped eating early in the day and only had easy to digest snacks in the evening. I chose to have my banana and half a bagel (what works for me for a morning run) about two hours before the race start. I also followed Jeff Galloway's suggestions for a hydration plan: Water or electrolyte beverage on night time "rehearsal" runs and fine tune to your needs.
    Morning - 6-8oz every hour
    Afternoon - 6oz every 2 hours (stopping or minimizing fluid intake about 2 hours before the run/race start)
    4-6oz with each snack


    The best advice I've receievd is to be sure to "practice" your race day eating plan and don't introduce anything new on race day. You don't want any surprises.

    I hope this helps and others come along with what works for them. Happy training!

    I think we will be going to WDW 11/8--11/17. I hope to firm up plans this week with MJ. If we go, then Kourtney & I will run the Mickey Jingle Jungle 5K. That would be lots of fun.
