At night, with all the lights on in the parks, it's a great ambiance and a different feel than the daytime 5k in Sept.
Thanks!

Another question, my son wants to run with me age 6 in the 5k have you seen kids of all ages running in the 5k? He just did a jog a thon at school around the rack and ran 2 miles in 15 mins it was cold outside so they stopped the kids at 15 mins sure he could have ran longer. I did plan on putting him in one of the kids races but since it might be him and I going without dad he would have to run with me. Thanks!

Yeah, kids of all ages so the 5k. He should be fine, at one of them I saw a little girl, no more than 3 or 4 soing it w/o a stroller.

Someone pointed out on the DL side that they changed the schedule around. 5k is now Sat morning @ 5:45 w/ no park tix (yay) and the 1/2 is now @ 5am!! It's going to be cold and dark for almost the whole thing! Don't know how I feel about all the changes.

Vicki- got my purse today! Love it. But I saw so many people w/ cars merchandise and taffic cone cups, so jealous. That's alright, the 1/2 is only 12 weeks away.

YIKES! 5am!! I wonder if that means they are expanding the total # of runners from last year and need the extra time? Kinda bums me out though because most of the course pics will probably be dark now.

Kim--I'm so glad you like your purse
Did you go down to the park over the weekend ? They had plenty of tickets left for Cars Land preview but they were "paid tickets". Only 3 more weeks untill we get to go back down.

I can't believe the 1/2 is 12 weeks away. To me that means the end of summer....but then it's onto Halloween Time --yeah !!! Have you seen anything about the medal this year ??

Yeah, me too. That was the 1st thing that popped in my head. That and how warm it'll be at 5am in Jan. You'll have to run over 2 1/2 hours to get any pics that you'll be able to see. Hopefully the park will have all the nighttime lights on. I was thinking maybe the time change was b/c of MLK weekend, but Sept is over Labor day, so who knows what's behind the change. I would love it if the did that in Sept though.

I did go down this weekend!! Didn't do the paid tix thing, I was thinking about it, but then I figured it would be a better experience to go in blind on Sat. for the 5k. I don't know about you, but everytime I see the road down the middle of the land, I just see 1,000s of runners running down it. Haven't seen anything about the medals, maybe they're keeping it the same.

I'm excited for Halloween too. I've never been there when they've done all the decorations, so it's going to be a ton of fun.

You are so right--who wouldn't want to run on "route 66" !!!

The Halloween Party @ DL (extra $$ for the tickets) is really a lot of fun and tons of candy. You see lots of great costumes and now it's the only way to see Halloween Screams and Zero flying over the castle.

soooo annoyed! I'll probably have to wait a day or two to register...oh well. BofA decided to screw up and process a payment TWICE last week...and of course it had to be when I made a LARGE payment to pay off a balance. GAH! They've reversed it, but said it takes "5-7 days" for the $$ to be back in my bank account...today is day 7, and it's still not there of course. They may have meant business days though, who knows. Funny how fast the $$ comes out when it's going TO them, but not the other way around. Grrr. Oh well, hopefully it'll be back by tomorrow and I'll be able to register then. I just love the excitement of getting in and registering as soon as it opens though.

WooHoo!!!

I am signed up for the 5k and the Half!! Now time to book the hotel room. I want to stay on Disney and this will be the only time I will make it to Disneyland ( I live in Ontario so the flight is like $600 ) When I called the number it was a machine telling me to leave my name and number. What is up with that?

Anyone else staying on Disney and know how I could book my room today and still get the discount?

I know, I'm so excited for the party too. I'm going to do the combo Happy Haunts Tour w/ the Party. Just waiting for the calendar to be released, pretty sure as soon as all the Cars craziness dies Friday it'll be out soon.

Holy cow you should have seen the parks yesterday, it was absolutely crazy!!! It was kind of crowded Sunday, but it was like an extra 20,000 people showed up over night. I was doing the Agriculture Tour and we went through Fantasyland around 11:15 and the lines were insane. I have't been to DL during summer months in 15 years and was blown away. Sunday they had all the extended poles and ropes out for all the rides, never thought they would all be in use the next day. I can only imagine what Thurs. is going to be like when your only option is DL.

Sorry about that one! I'm the same way. Even though I know it doesn't matter when I sign up, nothing can really beat the 1st day.

Get Travel usually have the best rates for the 3 resort hotels. They don't have stuff up for next year's race yet, but they'll be updating it soon.

They also do the discounted park tix.

How was the Agriculture Tour? I've never done the Halloween tour either but I've seen it around the park and it looks like a lot of fun !! Last year we got over 18 lbs of candy--really we put the bags on a scale. (Hint-bring along those great Disney resuable shopping bags to empty out the ones they give you) And that was for just the 3 of us. We ended up giving so much away and took the rest of our son's dentist who sent the candy and treats to the troups overseas.

The crowds --I can believe it. It seems like every school has a end of school fieldtrip at the park. So many school kids in large groups--crazy.
