    runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend

    Just a heads up - if you’re looking to support a charity for this race weekend, many have already opened registrations. I’ve personally seen posts by GKTW, Girls on the Run, and ACS but I’m sure there are more as contracts are being finalized. I decided to support ACS this time around (because...

    Epcot's 40th Anniversary

    Right?! That original planning thread was my reason for joining these boards. I hadn’t yet met my husband at that point, but he would have thought I was a wacko too. 😂 Thankfully my mom was totally game for all the crazy fun. I also don’t want to believe it’s been 15 years - where has the time...

    Epcot's 40th Anniversary

    Oh gosh, the deluge - I think we were around the African Outpost when it started? “Do you feel raindrops?” *Floodgates from above pour down instantly* 😂 I feel like I might have been one of the ones to plant the idea early on in the planning stages of sticking around for the burn-off, I...

    Epcot's 40th Anniversary

    My mom and I still refer to the 25th as our favorite Disney memory, and just one of our best days ever. We were one of the first to arrive at the park that morning, and were amongst the “Inferno Barge Burn-Off Sing-Along” group to be escorted out well after closing. It was a long, but absolutely...

    All 3, I believe, since it’s still 19.3 on the graphic and the 5K will cover the missing 3.1 miles from the 10-miler.

    News Disney Vacation Club billboard wrapped in scaffolding for refurbishment

    My memory is fuzzy, so I’m more than welcome for someone to tell me I’m wrong, but I seem to recall it being built in secret around fall/winter 2005. It was wrapped up like a present with a teased unveiling (typical huge fanfare for little payoff) and I think that happened around early/spring 2006?

    News Disney Vacation Club billboard wrapped in scaffolding for refurbishment

    This one is positioned at the intersection in such a way that you would directly face it as you were leaving the Bonnet Creek resorts. The idea, as I always understood it, was that after you sat through a timeshare presentation at one of those non-Disney resorts, and you’re waiting at the light...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    For anyone still looking for non-challenge bibs, GKTW has opened up spots. They also have bibs for all races (including challenges) for W&D and Princess.

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Yeah, unfortunately with the inclusion of the hotel package, it’s quite pricey. If I see any other charities post that they’re available, I’ll try to mention it here!

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    For anyone looking for a charity bib, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society/Team in Training will be opening their registration tomorrow, April 21st at 2:00pm ET. FYI - You are able to get a bib-only registration for the single distance events (I believe it’s a $1600 minimum fundraising amount regardless...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Absolutely insane. I want to say the 2021 races (which were capped much lower, and eventually didn’t happen) took longer to sell out than today. I wonder if we’ll see more registrations trickle through over time, or if that was literally it.

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Saw this on the runDisney Marketplace FB page: “Please consider Sophie and Madigan's Playground (https://www.facebook.com/Sophieandmadigansplayground/)!! Charity groups aren't allowed to take registrations yet, but if you send an email to Jack at info@sophieandmadigansplayground.org we can let...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    I agree, GKTW as a wonderful charity to run for - I ran the WDW Half this past January on their behalf. However - they started taking an interest list for W&D, Marathon Weekend, and Princess a few weeks ago, and I’ve heard their waitlist for Dopey is full. The other distances might still have...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Right? Like any other “normal” event (a la Ticketmaster, etc). It’s terrible. I know there are bigger things in life, but it’s rather frustrating to see this crumble and fail time and time again…
