Yes, we did. It looks like alot of fun. Wish we were going to be there.
Forget Cruises, Forget Camping, Give Me Disneyland! Acts 4:12
No email for me. Not like I can go anyway. Nice to see they are keeping Carsland open for the event.
Have a Disney Day!
You don't have to walk on water, it's how you walk on land.
No email for me... can't go to the first one, but might be able to swing the second one. Maybe I'll wait to decide until I see reports from the first one :-)
None received. Went to one of these in Feb and was so crowded I left early.

I'd LOVE to go, but we get there on the 8th and leave the morning of the 19th! Too bad it wasn't a day earlier. I did get the email, but didn't register.
I understood that APs could register at ticket booth #4 starting at noon on the day of the event. Oh, and no email for us either. We'll try to hit one or the other, not sure which one.
I got the email (and live in the Los Angeles area), but already have plans to go on the 6th (MouseAdventure practice with my team) and 13th (for the special event). Adding the Thursdays would be admittedly overboard.
2014: Avengers 5k
2015: Star Wars 10k + Avengers 10k
2016: Star Wars 10k, Paris Half and 5k, Avengers Half?

The email that I received said that I couldn't register until the day of the event. It appears that not all AP holders received the email.
Thanks for the feedback.
You're right. I didn't read too carefully since I knew I couldn't go. :-)
To passholder event veterans: We are flying in on the 5th, but won't get to the park until about 1:30pm. It states limited space several times. As registration starts at noon, need we fear getting shut out?
Thursday is a no-school day for the Los Angeles Unified School District. My few moments of considering switching our plan to go to the parks Wednesday to going Thursday and getting wristbands for this are over- I suspect Thursday will not be a week-after-labor-day-uncrowded day at the Disneyland Resort, but perhaps I overestimate the effect of a school holiday for the LAUSD (I don't think Orange County schools, in general, are closed that day).
Should I expect the line/wait at ticket booth to be long? Just wondering what is the best way to fit this into our day. Send one person ahead early to get a spot in line and all meet up closer to wristband distribution time? How good would our chances be of getting wristbands if we show up close to 12:00?
Can anyone recommend a good time to start lining up for the DCA event in September if they are going to start handing wristbands out at 12:00? Obviously I want to get there before all the wristbands are handed out, but I want to spend the least amount of time in line as possible. Thanks!
Anyone go to the event yesterday? How was it?
I went last night with some friends. We didn't check in to get our wristbands until around 7:30pm. There was no wait in the wristband line and that went very smoothly.
Overall, I'd say the crowds in the park were light-moderate. 20 minute wait for ToT, 30 minutes for TSMM, RSR was down when we walked by. No wait for Soarin' at 10:30.
The only complaint I have is that the AC was off in all the rides early in the event. CM at ToT said the AC went off when the park officially closed at 8pm and they had called maintenance to turn it back on. AC was still off in Little Mermaid when we were there around 10, but on in Soarin'.
The 'gifts' get handed out starting at 9:45, so you could not just check in at 8, get your gift and leave. However, the gift was only a Little Mermaid magnet promoting its release on Blu-Ray so I'm not sure you'd be missing much.
It was a fun night - I'd do it again.
Did you guys see the next one is Nightmare Before Christmas will be shown in the Muppet 3D Theatre? I don't remember the date, but there were 2 show times.
Thankyou. Both A and I have reacted to something and I itch from head to toe. Doesn't leave much brain power behind.
Interesting. So they're doing an AP exclusive thing in DCA on the same night they're doing the extra hours at Disneyland for everyone for the kickoff of Halloweentime. I'll be at Disneyland, enjoying pumpkin beignets and villains.
Watching them play hide-and-seek in the suite - priceless.
