I did the W&D in 2010, and didn't run again until I started training for this year's Donald - I was pregnant for a good bit of that time BUT - when I did start running again, it only took a couple of weeks for my body and muscles to remember what they should be doing, but it felt much better the second time around! I hope it goes well for you!

I hate to be that person but really $175?!? I mean I love Disney and they are marketing geniuses and supply and demand, but it's not like this one sells out super fast!

That being said... I'm still in I want my C2C again this year!

Last year's was:
$150/$165/$180

A $25 increase across the board.
Although I do not like it, I think that they can 'get away with it' when they hike up the entrance fees for the California races, as there is more demand. But this race doesn't sell out like those do.

Wonder if the 2014 (5th Wine & Dine Half) will be $200.

WHOOOOAAAAA.... I guess that's what ya expect from Disney, but $325 to run a race and meet my wife and niece at the after party is a little steep!! Oh we'll, all for the love of the mouse!

The worst part about starting back up for me is always that my head and heart are totally in the game but my lungs and legs go- "hold on a minute! We're not with you yet!" it's tough but it isn't too bad for too long.

Host resorts are up on the website.

Value - All Star resorts
Moderate - Caribbean Beach
Deluxe - Saratoga Springs, Animal Kingdom, Beach Club and Boardwalk

I know last year they added a couple after the initial listing. But I think they started with a few less resorts with the first listing last year.

So what does this mean? They run transport from these resorts only? And is that to race & to packet pickup? Are there other things that go on at 'host' resorts?

And the price doesn't shock me. I mean, this is the same place that charges $450 for a 'deluxe room' the size of the Holiday Inn Express room or the $15 pin...or $45 t-shirt. Yhea, it's a racket & they have us all! It's the crack they put in the water at Disney- makes us think it's all good & pixie dust is raining down on us. (P.S- I am guilty of all above purchases!)

If you are at a half now, you should be in good shape to enjoy the after party.

That is typically what host resorts offer. Transportation to and from expo, start and finish.

I just put my BWV wait list in last week, now it's just waiting, either for the 7 month point to book SSR or my WL to come through.

ROFL! Yup- got us hook line and sinker.

When I update the first post I will add some useful information to it as well. That can be my project during the Friday and Saturday storm that is going to add another 2 feet of snow to the new foot and then some that came Monday. I'm not sure I will be running outside tomorrow- it is really icy out there!
