Thank you so much for the explanation about race registration differences in CA vs. FL. I felt like last year when we ran ToT there were still a limited number of W&D spots left. (Though I may be thinking of Princess slots.) I wouldn't wait that long to sign up, of course, was just concerned that Disney race entries were getting super competitive.

I couldn't remember, so I looked at the 2012 thread and it looks like the race sold out in July last year.

Hard to say what will happen this year. Disney races definitely now seem to have a 'frenziness' attached to them.

Here's the page from last year in case you are interested:

And contrary to many of my northern neighbors, anything below 80 is cold for me for layers are good!

I also used them to design my wedding invites, reply cards, and thank you cards, and they came out awesome!

Finish Line Party

So what happens at the FLP? Is there food and drink for purchase or is some of it included? I couldn't tell from the registration if there is an additional fee for the FLP (like the breakfast for the Princess...)

From what I have read, runners get admission to the finish line party with their race registration, along with a drink near the finish line and some small tidbit of food perhaps? Then you can sample the drinks and food at the party, but have to pay for your selections just as if you were there during regular park hours.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong!

A domestic canned beer or prepackaged sangria (it was a little scary) at the finish. I think there was pop too. $10 gift card to spend in epcot on food or drinks.

Food at the finish was (if I remember correctly) a banana and the box of food they have been giving out since Princess 2012. I actually really like it cause they have some g-f stuff in there. There was also powerade and water.

I'm definitely going to check it out!! Thank you!

I live in Tampa, and RARELY run in tech material for my shirts, I usually go with cotton tanks. It takes a bit for me to work up a sweat, I think living in FL almost all of my life has made my heat tolerance a bit higher than most!

Off to check out Zazzle!

I agree the sangria was a little odd, but I couldn't imagine a beer after the race. There was pop for minors and adults who didn't want alcohol.

The $10 gift card can be spent on anything, it doesn't need to be at the after party. I use mine to buy a Food & Wine vinylmation.

I too am a fan of the goodie box they have been giving out. It offers a nice variety than a bagel, an orange and a banana. It also is nice to be able to carry it all easily.

Planning to run the W & D 1/2 this year. DS who will turn 14 is August wants to run it with me.

Does anyone know which resorts are host resorts? I would like to get our resort reservations made soon.

Thanks

Most likely won't have anything official until they open registration.

I'm in! Add me to the list. You can add +1 to me if you want, as I'll be running with either my sister, or DH or both! So excited!
