I notice they still haven't posted the course for the 2013 Half Marathon. Is it likely that they would change it from last year's course?
Which half marathon course are you referring to? The 2013 Disneyland Half course is slightly changed from 2012 due to construction. The course was posted a few weeks ago on runDisney.com.
There is also the WDW Wine and Dine Half course, which will likely be the same (course posted in early October). There's the Tinkerbell (Disneyland) and Princess (WDW) half courses in 2014. And then there is the 2014 Walt Disney World half marathon course in January, which will be posted in December.
They almost surely won't change that one...I'd be shocked if they did. If you google the 2013 course that should be it - starts near Epcot, goes to and through Magic Kingdom, back to Epcot through Future World to the finish. The Princess Half course is exactly the same.
I figured it would be the same as previous years. I just thought it was odd that they have it listed as coming soon on the website. Odd...
Lately it seems like they've been taking awhile to get the course maps up on runDisney.com (for example, the Wine & Dine half is in November and there's no map for that one up yet. Ditto to the Happy Haunted 5K which is in October). It's weird. They pretty rarely change the courses though.I figured it would be the same as previous years.

Yeah, I wish the Disney Half and Princess Half courses were a little different...but I guess they found something that works and just want to go with it. I think if they took out the Magic Kingdom portion there would be an uproar. The races would still sell out though, they always do.In a way, I wish they WOULD change the courses up from race to race, even just a little.
There is a link on the USATF certification site that had a newer half certified course listed. But, it was under Princess and had no part of the run in MK. It's the first one in this link: Disney Half
...that is really interesting. HMMM.....It's similar. But, no it's not the relay. There's another cert for the relay specifically
Agreed - 3 parks! The traditional course is in Epcot for...like...a second.I like that course. I would rather run that than the traditional half. It's similar to the W&D course.
