Do a couple of evening runs this summer/fall.

Stay off your feet race day. (I fail at this 10 miles on my pedometer at race start)

The night races work for us because my folks can tag along to watch the kids.

My only concern is that after running ToT I felt too sick to do anything but walk back to YC so I am wondering if November will prove to be less humid so that maybe I'll be able to hit a few rides/character meets in the Epcot after the race rather than passing out on the sidewalk?
We ran W&D in 2010 & 2011 when it was early, this year was much easier
to enjoy the party.

I am a brand new runner, just started training for my first 5k in hopes of doing the Wine and Dine half marathon in November. I am so excited and terrified at the same time!

Package or no package?

I am SO in!!! Dragging my DS (15) with me. He says it's better than the Princess half-marathon. Am hopeful I can stretch the trip to cover both the Hallowe'en and Christmas festivities!

Am nursing a sore hip from an unrelated surgery and can only manage 5k at the moment and then I am sore after. The longest race I have ever done is 10k (and that was 5 years ago)... Am doing another in May, a duathlon in May, an Army Run half-marathon in September and THEN... W&D in November. WOOT!!!

I am not fit so will join the peeps over in WISH.

Does anyone know if traditionally it works out better to take the race/room package or just to maybe hold out for a free dining package?

Much thanks!

Bad news - I won't be able to register until the 16th

Good news - I will be on a Disney Cruise (our first!) when registration opens, so I can't be too sad!

Cannot wait to get registered!

If I recall from last year, the Friday before the race was the first Very Merry Christmas. We went to MK the weekend before (for Fantasyland preview) and it was all Halloween, when went back the following week for W&D it was all Christmas.

It would be possible to do both a MNSSHP and MVMCP if you are there long enough. As lerxst said, the 1st MVMCP was the Friday before the race (my non running friends attended that one).

As for package vs hold out for free dining....I think it depends on what is important to you. Choice of resort? "Value" of money paid to Disney? I went with free dining last year. I could have gotten a better deal if I booked room only and paid OOP for food, but I was splurging for my birthday and spent the extra $30 to have set plans and stuff prepaid (if I have a TS credit and an ADR, I am far more likely to sit and enjoy a nice meal than if I were just walking around the park and wanted to eat.). I am also a huge fan of renting DVC points if you are not a DVC member.
