I was wondering where you were getting your numbers. I'm looking at the runDisney page, it must be a little behind.
I think the fact that it's inaugural has a lot to do with it...that and people wanting one last shot at a Coast-to-Coast medal that didn't get in to the Disneyland Half.This seems even faster than Disneyland Half signups if I recall correctly? Maybe that was due to the site crashing for a long time for so many people last time.
Avengers Half Marathon - Sold out! Should have kept my 2PM guess!
Avengers 5K - Sold out!
runDisney kids races - Sold out!
Pasta in the Park - 93% full
People already whining on Facebook that more spots should be added to the 5K. Um...no. Sorry, but the courses are already crowded enough.
