    2014 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend

    Mark your calendars. Looks like open registration for the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon weekend events starts Tuesday January 28, 2014. Of course, stay tuned to Team MousePlanet to get all the latest on early any registration opportunities for APs, DVCs, VISA card holders, etc. Based on previous experience, don't be surprised to also see early registration at the WDW Marathon expo in January!

    2014 is year #9 for the Disneyland Half and 5k! Seems like just yesterday we were lining up for the first annual event. Time does fly when you're running.

    I said at this last 10K that I would never run that miserably hot weekend again.

    And, since then, I've decided that I'm going to go for Dumbo next year. Because, I'm kind of stupid crazy.

    First 5K - Neverland - January 19th, 2013
    First Half Marathon - TinkerBell - January 19th, 2014

    It's amazing what is possible in just one year.

    Do you know if there will be early registration at the 2014 Tinkerbell Expo? I'm not sure if that has happened in the past since this will be the wife's first time running the races in January.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they offered it at Tinker Bell but I would say no guarantees. runDisney usually doesn't announce per-registration at the expos - it's kind of a fun surprise when you stop by the runDisney booth.

    runDisney sold out so many pre-reg spots for the 2013 event that it sold out within a day of open registration. I would definitely watch the Team MousePlanet forum for any pre-reg announcements and get in as early as you can.

    Yeah, and I was one and done for marathons after the 2013 event and then I signed up for Dopey. I'm in that 'stupid crazy' boat with you.

    One alarm not to rely on is the runDisney email registration announcement. It's usually hours (if not a day) late!

    VERY true! With as much presence as runDisney has on Twitter, they sure are slow on those all important announcements (meet-ups, registrations, etc.) Which is why i follow forums like these and other Twitter peeps for breaking runDisney news.

    FWIW, the runDisney email I got the other day says registration starts at noon EST.

    Tobacco and earth are apparently quite tasty.

    Ok - LOVE the frog picture! That must be a mistle-toad.

    Noon EST / 9:00 a.m. PST is pretty standard for runDisney openings. It's usually also when the servers crash due to overloads which is why we recommend getting in earlier if possible.

    2014 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend

    I have to have my charity group order in Jan 7. It looks like DDD is having a $50 increase, half a $15 increase and 10k a $10 increase.

    Looks like the registration link is live but a password is required. Nothing updated yet for APs. Anything for DVC or Disney Visa?

    And proof of time for the half must be from a certified 10k or longer race completed after August 1, 2012.

    Not really surprised, but a little disappointed in the pricing.

    Completely agree. We're about 95% going to skip it this year and probably do Dumbo in 2015 for the half marathon anniversary medal.

    I'm priced out. I already scoffed at myself for $175 races. $200? Pass. Nice try RunDisney, but I'm tapped.

    Has anyone heard if they will open up early registration for DVC, AP or Disney Visa?

    Haven't seen or heard a thing for AP. Been checking the AP site but no updates so far.

    I was pretty iffy on doing the DL Half this year but looking at this price I think I might just pass entirely. Wow.

    When you consider how pricey a Disney trip (DLR or WDW) is in the first place, adding this expense is over the top for me. I felt this way when the Tink 2014 prices were posted, and this pretty much seals the deal. If I registered my family for the same races we ran during the 2013 Disneyland Half Marathon weekend, I'd be out $885.00 is entry fees alone.

    I feel like runDisney is more focused on first-time racers who want to check "ran through the Disney parks" off their running bucket list. As a Disney fan, it breaks my heart that I won't be able to combine my two favorite things (running and Disney) in one trip, but for the cost of our park visits, I'd rather focus my time on parks, and save my race entry fees for the many other races out there (local and destination) that are less expensive but can be just as amazing to run. After Dopey, I guess that's it for me for a while.
