I just couldn't pull the trigger on the Princess - too many other things planned for next year. Maybe in 2015!

Oh yes! Can't wait to register! And I think I'm one of the few crossing my fingers that the 10K challenge happens this year!

if Tink adds a 10k, I can see how that will sell out quickly, but the Princess Half is at 55% and 10k is at 84%.

I want to do Tink every year, that's my goal, so if they have a 10k challenge and it sells out, and I still get to do the half, I need to be ok with that. At least the first year! LOL. they typically do not change medals, so getting one for a Tink 10k challenge in year 2 would probably look the same as year 1, hahaha!

This may have been reported before but the rD website still shows the expo as Fri and Sat only, I just noticed my Tink confirmation from the GSC registration also lists Thursday 2:00-7:00. That may mess with my travel plans as all of the "good stuff" might be limited by Friday :-(. Does the Thursday shed more light on a 10k and challenge. The suspense is driving me batty!

Last year I didn't get to the expo until Saturday and there was still lots of official merchandise avaialble. I was worried I would miss out on something good but I didn't. Of course if you're looking for one of the Dooney bags or something thats another story! I think the expo was on Thursday last year too. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't remember when it started last year. My head says that it's probably disney realzing if they open up shop earlier on a 3-day weekend more people will go down on Thursday, but my heart is saying yes! It's for the 10k and they're setting it up like PHM Weekend w/ the 5k on Fri so they can take more of my money and not doing it Sat before the 10k like DDD.

And now the question is will there be a 10K challenge or just the 10K?

At first I told myself I would only do it if its a challenge, but then I decided it would be cool to do it anyway since its the first year....oh decisions, decisions.

I can't imagine they'd be adding a challenge if people are already pre-registering. At this stage in the game with registration next month and pre-registration begun I don't see anything being added this year. Not a 10K, not a challenge. Maybe in 2015?

I'm of the opposite opinion. Since they added a 10k and Challenge for the DL HM weekend in September of this year, and since both events were extremely popular and sold out the first day of open registration, I think they'd be very much inclined to add those events for Tink in January.

I agree.

I was at Tink in January 2013, and the DDD sold out so FAST. Disney is $$ driven, they'd likely get more if they added a challenge to Tink.
