Can someone recap any of the potential get togethers before or after the race?

I get in line for Race Transportation at 3:30 a.m. If driving 3:30-3:40. The roads (World Dr, Buena Vista Dr.) become 10 mile/hour parking lots at like 3:45 a.m.

Sure, most of them are really small things individually, but together they pile up and diminish the experience as a whole, in my opinion...from registration day to the starting fireworks. I hope they can get it all sorted out and properly organized before they decide to take on any more.

Good luck getting your run in today...stay warm!
i agree. i'm sure the race will be awesome but the lead-up is falling behind a little!

Two weeks from now we will all be sporting our medals!

I got my emails, but I am seriously wondering why they didn't spread out the runners a bit more since there are a good bit more this year and the race is starting a little earlier. Would it have hurt to add another corral? I mean I love this race, but man its gonna be tight in MK and after we leave on that 2 lane road. Oh well, no matter it will be a blast. I just wonder if they have been so distracted with the DDD they didn't think alot of things through for the Princess....and on the emails and such have someone double check the stuff.

Got my 10 miler in and so ready for the weekend!

OMG, I can't believe it's only 2 weeks from now. I will either be in traction, on a stretcher or in a wheelchair! But.....I will have an adult beverage in my hand. 😀

Emails? Plural?!?! I would settle for one. Anything important I should know? I've been reading here so I feel prepared, but I shouldn't have to rely on a message board to gather info.

I had a weird glitch with logging in so if you can't access it for some reason, they will send it to you via e-mail as well. I was just trying to find out which Disney Princess I picked for my bib but they sent me my whole entire registration record.
So if I go back to the original email I got from Active.com and check my registration information, and it still lists the race I registered with NOT the new information, that probably means that the new race information was NOT used for corral placement, yes?

I am. I figure it won't take up much space in my luggage, and if it's really hot, it might be nice to get in the pool for a bit.

I'm in the same boat with you. No e-mails from run Disney. Without this board I wouldn't have my wavers. I did get a link from facebook for the commemorative poster. Thanks everyone.
