Yes!!! I saw this- asked TA about it and she said it was just added today as far as she knew. Very cool for those looking for choices! I'm still sticking with BC.

Signed up at opening. DH and I will be on first "no children vacation" since 1999 I think. Yikes! Been too long!

They do have them at ESPN but you can also pick up the tickets at any Guest Relations window at the parks. I picked mine up at AK.

Newbie question....I have my hotel reservation made separately at Pop (which is a host resort) will we be able to use the transportaion since we didn't book as a package? I'm still considering renting a car for the freedom it provides, but would like to know as a back up. Thanks!

Maybe we'll stay at SSR or Beach Club Villas. Or HOPEFULLY I can convince my wife that we stay at Poly a few nights on the race price and then move to another resort. She hates changing resorts...but we're planning to be there 9 nights so maybe that'll make it feel not so bad.
Super bummed about the change in host resorts. They took off a huge one (AKV) and added small properties that have been booked tight for almost 4 months. No studio availibility at BWV or VWL for me.

Feels like they're trying to push DVC members into paying $$$ for a room. I'm going to have to wait until my 7 month booking window opens for SSR to sign up and hope that something there is available!

All registered! We were going to rent points at AKL but decided to save money and booked a Mermaid room.

Registering myself was super easy getting DD into kids race was crazy. Kept telling me I was told old to run but if I used DD it kept saying she wasn't old enough to register. Kept doing the same thing and it eventually worked.

I know that people have booked Dolphin and used the BC bus for transportation. I see no reason why you have to book through run Disney vs TA to use transportation from a host hotel.

Just food for thought...

For what it's worth, we're staying at the Royal Plaza at Downtown Disney. They're obviously not a host hotel, but it's quiet and has it's own dedicated taxi service. So we're going to take a cab over to Epcot, ride the race bus over to WWoS, and call for the taxi to pick us up at Epcot after the party. I would suggest to not count out the non-Disney hotels but check with them and see if the provide any services like the Plaza does. And since it is where it is, you're not in the middle of chaos like I'm sure some of the other hotels are that weekend!
