    The Official 2014 Tower of Terror 10-Miler Race Program is available for download on the runDisney site. Or you can click here for the PDF.

    Waivers will be available two weeks prior to the event. No sign of corrals at this time.

    So I've seen rumblings on the web that runDisney may have accidentally used the 2013 ToT 10-Miler participant list for their recent "more information" mailing. Folks who participated in 2013 but did not sign up for 2014 received the emails while those who signed up for 2014 only did not (although it appears runDisney may have started to correct that issue).

    Anyone receive an odd Tower of Terror 10-Miler email from runDisney?

    Excellent! runDisney confirmed they accidentally used the wrong email list but it sounds like they have corrected the issue.

    You are so going to enjoy this race. The number of villains available for pictures is pretty incredible!

    Looks like Lasting Commemoratives has changed from offering a free art card to a free book mark in the iGift Bag. Bummer...

    We should do that! When do you arrive? I'm there Thursday night and plan on hitting the Halloween party. Expo first thing on Friday morning.

    We get in Thursday evening. We're doing the party Friday night. I'm not sure when we'll hit the expo. I need to see if it's open Thursday night. What parks are you doing? What corral are you in?

    I'm in Corral E. Friday I plan on visiting Epcot and Magic Kingdom on Friday. Saturday I'm doing the 5k in the morning and then relaxing in DT Disney and at the hotel in the afternoon prior to the race. Staying at All-Star Sports.

    You?

    We're staying in sports too. We're doing MK Friday and then staying for the party. Saturday, we're doing Hollywood Studios. My sister is bummed about them ending the backlot tour, but we already did out FP+ selections, so we'll still go there. Sunday morning we're going to do brunch at the Grand Floridian to explore a bit.

    Perhaps breakfast Friday morning at the hotel? Mickey Waffles?

    Sunday I'm heading out on a 7:00 a.m. flight as I have to be on client site Monday morning. Yuk...

    We have reservations at The Crystal Palace at 8:45 Friday morning...breakfast Saturday morning?

    That won't work...just remembered you're doing the 5k. What are you doing for a pre race dinner? How many hours before the race should we eat?

    Generally, you want to eat your biggest meal about 18 hours before the race which would put dinner around breakfast time. I have a good carb dinner Friday night and waffles after the 5k on Saturday. The rest of the day I tend to graze. With the heat and humidity of WDW I try to avoid eating heavy prior to the race.

    Runner tracking for ToT is open and is NOT the same AT&T tracking they had at the Disneyland Half!
