Not sure if we are doing the party the same way this year too, we will have to see once they release the party dates and go from there

I will tell you that the Friday Halloween party was very crowded, it was a sold-out party, and one of the CM discount parties, but it was a BLAST!! Still nowhere near the crowds you see during the day!!

Definately doing a Halloween party again this year
Thanks so much! We are coming from Mountain time zone and would frankly like to try to stay on that time (it will help DS12 if the race/villains party seems to be from 8-2 rather than 10-4, kwim?) and we think that being up for the party the night before will do just what you said--force us up late Friday and to sleep in on Saturday. We also are not doing any of the events Sat. morning.

We already arrive late Thursday (late in FL, anyway) so we are set to sleep in Friday morning. If we can maintain that schedule, then I think we will all be better off.

Thanks again!

Is it normal for people to bring kids to the after-party? We definitely won't make it to 4am, but just curious.

If the race is at 10pm, what time do you need to leave to get over to start location?

Just registered with DH.

This is my first kids-free Disney vacation in 10 years. We will only be there 3 days but hoping to do Key to the Kingdom. really would like to do it on Saturday. Just don't know that I can "do nothing" all day.

Rundisney will give definite times in the final race instructions, but I want to say that we left at 7:00..no later than 7:30.

Yeah, I saw a lot of kiddos running around at the after-party! It is a kid-friendly environment They can even get into the park at 10:00 as the race is starting so they can start riding rides

Last year we left our room at 5:00 Not doing that this year LOL!! But last year we stayed at the Poly- not a host resort- so we left our room at 5:00 to get a cab, then took the cab to ESPN, then hung around there to get on the bus right at 7:00! The busses took off right around 7:00, got to the staging area before 7:30 and just hung around!

This year we are not planning on leaving that early- we are staying at the Boardwalk so we will walk over to the staging area and avoid all the transportation stuff

I have a question about the theme park tickets. I am trying to buy through the online store with the special password for the race and it says that the store does not exist. Anyone else have this problem??

my two older kids (11 and 8) will be at the after-party with my sister. they are excited for the party!

the youngest (age 2) is staying home with dad. (and it will be hard to leave him, but i know he wouldn't enjoy our schedule for the weekend.)

My family is all registered!

I'm running the 10 miler and it's going to be my first "big" race.

This thread has been great reading for all the tips and advice. I'm sure I'll be in and out with questions!

I was able to get in fine when I just tried. I went to the "Travel" link at the top of the Run Disney site, then chose WDW, then chose the 10 miler and then it had me enter the code and I was able to get in and do it. Maybe the system was loaded earlier with Wine & Dine registrants? That just opened today.

Of course, we all know Disney's websites would never experience problems...
