What I found was using both goals really kept me focused. That not only aided weight loss, but also gave me more ways to see success! Good luck with your journey, wherever it leads!

DDD and C2C via W&D

3Hi - Subscribing and planning to run the Wine and Dine with DH after completing the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare for our C2C in 2013. So excited! These will both be our first Disney races. Have done a few 1/2 marathons before here locally in San Diego.

We have been thinking for awhile about doing W&D half. It will be the last night we are there, my mom will be there to watch my young girls, so why not end it on a high note.

Add me to the list!!

Just booked January stay for the Goofy. 10 years after my first marathon at Disney, it will be my 10th full.

Just checked out the blog Matt and I love it! What a great story! Neither the DH nor I could believe the pic at the bottom is the same guy as the one at the top! You go buddy. Can't wait to meet up with you and all the W&D Dis'ers again this year!

Hey guys - do you know if there will be a pre-registration period for Disney Visa cardholders and if there is how do you do it?
Do you think this race will sell out very quickly?

Also - will there be relays this year?

I don't think there is a pre-registration period. The word from last year is that it won't likely sell out as fast as Disneyland. And I don't know about relays for sure, but it doesn't mention it on the website and they removed the relay last year so I would say it doesn't look good.

Awww, congratulations, that's wonderful! This is my first half, too, and I'm super pumped! Have you checked out Jeff Galloway's training program on runDisney? I LOVE his program, and it's so easy to follow. I've been at it for a while, since I've been planning some 5Ks and a 10K before I do the half, and I don't find it as painful as I thought it would be.

The relay option returning for this race is highly unlikely. It caused too many logistical issues. If runDisney is planning on rehashing a relay race, I think it would be 2015 Chip & Dale.

Has anyone ever booked with run with the mouse? I inquired with them and feel as though they have been a bit harass-y. Where have people found the best deals for All Star sports? I'm flying in Friday night and out Sunday morning. Just in for the race.

I've never heard of them but you may want to try Mouse Fan Travel http://www.mousefantravel.com/. They're recommended by allears.net. I've never used a travel agent to book my Disney trips, but they really seem to have all the bases covered. I've read about someone who booked through them, and received an email stating they were able to get an ever lower rate as the agent checked and found a cheaper AAA rate. I guess they check rates on a daily basis, and if there's any way to discount your trip, they are right on it. I've already contacted them for this year's race and may book with them once it's confirmed which hotels will be the host resorts. They don't seem to be pushy at all and once I told them I was just waiting to see what the host resorts are, they replied simply stating they're looking forward to assisting with whatever I need when I'm ready. So far, I'm impressed with them. Just a suggestion...
