Mine is -
300 Wake up
330 out the door
Relax and stay off my feet until the herd mooves to the corrals. Newspapers are great to sit on in the staging area.
500 I eat a greek yogurt and oatmeal sip a couple oz of water
530 begin to warm up and stretch
545 ditch my long sleeve warm up shirt
549 Start
Sometime during the morning, Finish

I fully believe in the keep it simple plan Wake-up, Eat, Stretch, Run, Finish

I was told they may be able to accomodate but couldn't put the request in ahead of time.
When I did the 1/2 in 2009, I stayed at WL and used the microwave at Roaring Forks to cook my instant oatmeal. So you should be fine.

Somewhere in the 4:30-ish time frame, I think.


My routine is to get up as late as possible--3:30 (which is silly since I am inevitably awake), eat an instant oatmeal and maybe a banana and drink some water--no dairy for me and try to eat at least 2 hrs before race start. Was hoping to walk from OKW--just hope there is no issue--at around 4:30 with DD on Saturday and on my own Sunday. Will think this part over--would get the 4-ish bus otherwise.

Hit the portapotties at least twice and head for the corral. Coach Will you whisper where the secret ones are?.......and bushes don't count!

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this or not but I purchased a pre made box breakfast the night before the race. They were selling them in the food court. If I remember correctly, the box contained a banana, a bagel, cream cheese, Peanut butter and a granola bar I think. It was very convenient. I think it was like $10. Maybe a little less. We took our boxes with us and ate them once we got to our corrals.

Wow, Coach - what time does breakfast start in your villa? Do we need an ADR? Sounds loverly.

Carnation instant breakfast for me. Liquid, carb, little protein, all in a convenient to-go bottle. And a granola bar to soak it up. Win-win. I'm lazy.

Thats the way to do it! You are basically still in your room until the crowds move. You pretty much have the best of both worlds...staying at Disney in YOUR place, getting it a much better rate than a hotel and just driving your home to the lot. I assume its a class b or small class c...you are lucky for that!

My plan is to be on the last bus out of my resort (I usually am not but I shoot for it anyway) because the least time I can spend standing around before the start the better I like it.

Breakfast is usually a half a bagel and a banana in the room before leaving- or on the way to bus if something happens.

I have yet to finalize my times, but since this is my first Disney race, I would rather be at the start earlier to take in the experience rather than getting a little more sleep.

Also, although this goes against conventional school of thought, I actually like/need to have something a little greasy like bacon and eggs on race day, so hoping they will be serving breakfast like that at Pop food court on race morning!

Better grab your breakfast choice the morning prior and microwave in the food court.. You can usually get a refrigerator if not already there

Will the buses go to the bus stops in Old Key West or only the main stop at the HH? I am planning on getting up at 2:45 and catch the bus around 3:30. Not planning on checking a bag. Just shorts, t-shirt, and maybe some knit gloves to throw away when the race starts.
