The expo will be Friday and Saturday. It won't be a problem if you are referring to the Half Marathon or the Kids races. And I think they had bib pick up at the race for the 5K last year and the year before???

Definitely the half! We originally had booked a cruise that would have worked with the old dates, when moved it when the race was moved; but it means we will be getting off the ship that morning (if they hold us up at customs we may not get out until 9:30 or 10) and will have to book it to the expo! Do you know when they have closed it in the past?

I want to say the expo closed at 4 or 5pm on Saturday last year.

Based on the transportation info here: http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events...rathon#pip-3-3
It supports jeanigor's guess of 4 or 5 pm.

I am very disappointed about this! We were planning on doing the relay this year, luckily hadn't booked anything yet, but its super disappointing. Drat! Back to the planning drawing board...

I hadn't noticed. Thanks for bringing it up. Some travel companions enjoy doing the relay. Guess they are either going to need to pony up to the Tower of Terror 10 miler or just come as spectators.

I'm going to participate in this one too. My wife wants to do the relay with her SIL so I'm hoping they are still going to do it.

As for travel arrangements, I'm making plans under the assumption that the "host resorts" will be the same....if not I'll be changing my reservations.

Last year we did the 5K in the morning of the W & D and I was sooooo jealous of the shirts the 1/2 marathon people got!! I told DH that I wanted to do the half this year.

We go every November due to school break and are thrilled the race was moved. I am really concerned about crowds due to Jersey Week, end of F&W and VD. DH still wants to do the 5K in the morning, so I am thinking about doing both morning and night and sleeping all the way home the next morning!

I am planning on doing this race this year. We had actually already planned our trip for that time so I was happy with the change myself. Not sure howI will fare with the nighttime start but we shall see.

Maybe just as well since I've had bronchitis for 2 weeks and can't imagine running even 5 miles right now. A fall race would be better in terms of training... it's harder to stay active in the cold (we live in Maine.)
I say go for it! Just adjust your sleep schedule a day or two before the race. Its dark when you start any Disney half - whether it be a morning or night race. Your body wont know the difference if you feed it and rest it right.

$155! Holy moly thats expensive. I did Tink, which I got from a travel agent for I think $120. Why is this race so expensive? I'll still be doing it, but just wondering. Maybe Disney is raising prices for races right now across the board.

Hi Guys..

Just out of curiosity... Which ones were the host resorts last year and for the total newbie here.. Why is staying at a host resort a good thing?
