Hoping to be back next year, praying for better weather and to not be stuck at Coronado Springs for the expo.

I'm in!

So glad I found this forum. I want to do the Disney Princess next year and trying to convince a couple of my girlfriends to do it with me. I just started running again as I am trying to get healthy and lose weight. I'm excited as I am a big kid at heart and I love Disney! Plus I live less than 2 hours away. Currently I'm on week 5 of the Couch 2 5k. Doing well and plan on doing my first 5K in a couple of months. My goal is to lose about 80lbs, so between my cardio, running, and chasing my toddler I should be good to go! Looking forward to running my first half in a tiara!

How was the weather? And the new expo location? Would you mind telling us a little bit about this year's experience? I'd love to hear!

I'm so jealous- I'd love to run ToT and go to the villain after party! Unfortunately, I'm a broke college student who can't afford that many trips

The weather was horrid this year. High amounts of humidity shot quiet a few people's chances mine included. A sharp contrast to the 2012 edition which had temperatures in the 60s/70s with a bit of humidity but nothing severe. Hoping for 2012 conditions for 2014.

As for the expo, well it was a mad house to put it lightly. Lines for everything, bags and t shirts not ready, and an official merchandise area where the biggest question was 'Wheres the line start?' Them moving us to a smaller venue was a bad, bad idea. Hope they think of something better next year even going to WWOS which admittedly was a bit cramped would be better than Coronado with the current layout.

I will say though that the race organization itself was spectacular. They may have fell short everywhere else but they did a damn good job with the race itself.

I think the main problem was apparently no one at Run Disney actually though about the effects of adding several thousand more runners to a race does to everything. They were going about it like we had the same amount as last year which it wasn't. Hoping they don't make that mistake next year.

They generally put on a really good race it just didn't go that great this year.

Me! Me! I have had my eye on the Princess half for a few years and 2014 is the year I will make it happen! I have been set back in my running with injuries quite a few times, so I'm transitioning to barefoot/minimal running and plan to build myself up all year.

I was wondering how the expo move would go, I wonder if they will have it at CSR when it seems to have been a mess doing it there!

Well, the costume today was a two dress, cotton outfit. Also, had the tech shirt on the bottom. It wasn't too bad, but the design this time will be a tech material this time, just hope it's not cold next year since my stomach will be exposed.

I saw some really cool leggings on etsy. Google mermaid leggings. They were a little pricey, but way cool. I can't wait to see pictures of what you come up with. You did a great job on your Rapunzel dress!

I just realized the shells are purple, so I need a nude sports bra. Well either way, I decide the right color match, it should be getting altogether sometime in August

Also, I have a seamstress that is on etsy, my costume I wore and designed partly (took her original and modified it) she sells on there. I will work with her to come up with the design. Only thing is I'm in FL, she is in CAL.

I wasnt planning on doing ToT originally, but I kept going on the Run Disney website and it just looked so much fun that I decided to bite the bullet and do it. I figure it will be good preparation for the Princess 1/2 and I will get an idea of what Run Disney races are like.
