I had chafing on both of my arms, my bra line was raw, and I had a total of 20 blisters between my two feet and heat rash on both feet and my chest. I wore the same clothes I trained in and used body glide. Darn weather. Then I've been dealing with sick kiddos since (ear infections, strep, and pneumonia). I think I'll be able to get out this afternoon for a short run.

It was my understanding that the expo was at Coronado due to a scheduling conflict at WWoS. Just think though, ALL the race expos are like that in DL. The WWoS is a far better venue to accommodate the crowd.

Yes. You do NOT need to book a package through runDisney in order to be able to take advantage of event transportation. You simply need to be staying at a host resort. Doesn't matter if you booked it yourself, had your travel agent do it, are staying on DVC points or are doing a package through runDisney.

As long as you have your confirmation number/receipt to give them at the window, you should be able to do it at any of the parks' or DTD's guest relations booths.

Like many of you, I have to wait to register. I need all the stars to be aligned to make this happen. Keeping my fingers crossed. Disney is just the all time best place to run.

Am I crazy or what?! I just made a 2nd booking for Disney for the week of 11/8 - 11/16/13. My dd and I are participating in the Jingle Jungle 5K. I already had a booking through Disney for this week at POR. (I am soooo glad they added this as a Host Resort!) I thought I would check through iRun Disney and see if the rate is any better. I say! About $760 better! Sweet. The only thing that would be better is if Disney comes out with free dining for that week. I'm thinking about holding my original reservation open for a couple of months just in case that happens. Am I crazy or what? Please let me know!

I wouldnt say that's crazy- but I also would HIGHLY doubt a free dining with those dates. At least not the front end with the race and a holiday weekend going on. They may have it after Monday though- but you'd have to rebook that anyway. Soooo... it doesn't hurt anything to hold off until what- July or so when discounts for the fall come out?

Free Dining was offered last year during this time. So you never know...

I am 100% sure that hubby will tell me 100% NO when I ask about signing up for this...

But, it hasn't stopped me from starting to price it out.

I'm hoping to convince him that we can make the trip (without kids again) and stay at the Poly for an adults only relaxing weekend. I am even prepared to agree to no parks (since we were just there for Princess) if it *really* comes down to it.


Sorry I haven't read through this whole thread. Does the monorail run during the after party?

If you do not have a car and you have DD with you the bus should get you there in plenty of time.

DD really liked running with the other kids. Before the race they had all the kids dancing in center field and Mickey was there for hugs after the race. She will definitely do it again this year. And parents can run beside their kids if needed.
This will be the first year that my dd and I participate in the JJK. Do you remember the route? Does it go through Animal Kingdom? If so my plan after the race is to stay at the park and make Animal Kingdom the park we tour that day. I assume we will have to exit the park after the race and then reenter once it opens. Did anyone else do this in the past?

The course starts and ends in the parking lot. The first 3/4 mile or so is looping the outside of the parking lot before entering the park.

Here is the course from last year's program:

That's what I was thinking. I would wait until July or so and still have plenty of time to cancel either reservaton before the 45-day mark. Just wanted someone to reaffirm my thinking. Thanks.

Never say never! I asked dh after I got back from Princess and he was a firm no, especially since I'm traveling 700+ miles for another half two weeks before Wine and Dine. But I asked again yesterday, and no turned to maybe, which turned to a yes, and I'm registered now.

DH and I are thinking of getting tickets to the finish line party. (Not included in 5K.) Do they sell out? How soon do we need to decide?

I want to say they sold out in September last year. I could be mistaken though. It was certainly after the half marathon sold out.
