Registration Opens Today for Marathon Weekend!

Lucky for us, prices didn't go up much.  Goofy I'm pretty sure is the same price as last year too.
And if you have a Disney Visa, be sure to check your email and spam folder for an email that came out last week with a discount link!  You could get $15 off a regular race and $30 off of Goofy.
I'm interested to see what the 'surprise' is at Mile 20 of the marathon this year.  Since it's the 20th Anniversary, I think runDisney is going all out.  Also can't wait to see the medal! 
 The @DisneySports twitter account has been hinting at some other sort of announcement today so I'll try to keep you guys updated!

So who's joining me in January?  I already registered for Goofy using the Disney Visa discount!  


  1. I registered last night for the full. My first marathon. Gulp.

    Also registered yesterday for TOT along with DH and want to stay perfect with W&D (and W&D Galloway meet-ups) so I'll probably sneak down with some friends for it.

    Add in a trip to take the kids to Legoland/WWOHP/Star Wars Weekend in June and I'll be getting some money's worth from an AP this year!

  2. I'm already registered for the full thanks to my Disney Visa dicount. :)

    1. It's interesting to join a marathon. Let me ask, can I bring my whole family here with my 2 kids? Then it would be much fun if we come to Disney Garden Festival

  3. I registered last week for the Goofy!!! And today, I will be registering for the Family Fun 5K, making 2013 a "Dopey" Challenge for me.

    I look forward to seeing you out there as we complete our races! Can't wait to see what the new Mickey medal is going to look like! :)

  4. You know I'm in! Registered last week as well. See you at the meetup?

  5. Some day I'll run a Disney race....

  6. I'll be there doing Dopey for the third year in a row :)!

  7. I'm in! Well, not technically just yet -- but I will be!

  8. Crazy Jen and Goofy! haha :)

    I am running the full (only) - lol - I am thinking Goofy 2015?

  9. @controlledchaos...always makes me feel better when I get a ton of use out of my AP. My wallet begs to differ though :) Can't wait to hear about your training and experience with the full!

    @Julie...gotta love the Disney Visa discount :)

    @Rick...I am totally looking forward to seeing what both the full AND the half medals look like. Since last year was an anniversary year, it'll be new this year too.

    @Jonathan..yes!! See you there! :) (Hopefully)


    @Amanda...awesome! That 3 days in a row killed me this year.

    @FF...woot! I look forward to running into you randomly.

  10. I registered for the half marathon w/the disney Visa Discount! this will be my first time running this race. But i have registered for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in November

  11. I'll be there! It will be my first marathon and I'm stoked about it! :)

  12. I will be there for the Half marathon!! First (of many) Disney races!

  13. @Julie...both are great races! If you see me at either, stop and say hi!

    @B...couldn't ask for a better first marathon! Hope you have a great time!

    @hinsone...beware, they get SO addicting!! :)
