The Disneyland 1/2 Marathon in September is 73% full now (or 27% empty, depending on how you look at it). If you're a procrastinator like me, hurry up and register before its all full! πŸ‘

I'm strongly considering the 5k. I normally don't run at all so that would be a HUGE accomplishment for me!

Hey, run a little,then walk a little... then run a little, then walk a little... baby steps! Plus, you have plenty of time to train! JUST DO IT! You'll be proud after. Next step... the 1/2! 5 years and I'm still wanting to do the 1/2. Next year I will for sure! - DiscoSteve  279.8 #1118 7:25PM
Same here ( I signed up)! I don't run at all but I know I can get through this 5K cos if my mom can survive breast cancer I can survive as well! - iamdugsmaster  878.8 #220 7:31PM
I really think I'm going to register once I get my tax return. I looked into it, and they only require an average of a 16 minute mile, which I could do walking I'm pretty sure. I really want a finisher medallion to commemorate that I actually did something outside of my comfort zone. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 7:31PM
If I can do a half marathon, just about anybody can!! - LilSterner  5828.4 #24 11:14PM
I think I'm going to sign up for the 5k as well. But I want to try to run/jog the whole thing. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #192 10:11AM
Jen, the 5K I did a few years ago was what sparked my love for running! Before training for that, I couldn't run 10 feet without getting massive side aches and out of breath. It is the perfect distance to really prepare your body and it won't take over your life training for. :) I'm excited for you! - Melliott  301.2 #961 10:44AM
Jen, that's my goal too. I thought about it last night and 7 months is plenty of time to train to run 3 miles - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 10:49AM
Look into the couch to 5k program. There are apps for it too. It's an excellent training program. - KissDclown  1089.2 #179 11:29AM
”walking” a half marathon at a 16min/mile pace not doable... The average walking pace is well over 20min/mile. If you properly train (to walk or run), it can be done... like Ive said on here last year, its great to encourage people to set goals and reach them but we dont want to be giving running advice that could potentially hurt someone. - michelledork  696.2 #302 11:15PM
you should do it!! you'd be surprised at what you can do and what you think you can do!! I did a full marathon and that was heck!!! but my mind just blocked out the pain and ran haha!! :)) good luck!!! - emariegee  127.9 #3146 11:08PM
Since I can't go to Florida :( I might sign up for this tomorrow.
- Nyghtngale  572.3 #379 11:11PM
Like michelledork and Mimmy have said, training is a must if you plan to do the half marathon.  13.1 miles is a long distance to keep up a brisk walking pace.  But with the time available, it's definitely doable. - LilSterner  5828.4 #24 11:23PM

@ladylikesdisney You should! Honestly like BooEve said on a recent post, a 5K is the same amount of walking we do on a day trip to DL! Doing the 1/2 at 16min miles is totally doable. We still have almost 7 months to train, you can do it! ;) - Melliott  301.2 #961 8:00PM
Thanks for the advice! - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 8:05PM
@teajack9 (sorry, I can't reply on my own post lol) It's $150 - Melliott  301.2 #961 8:01PM
@ladylikesdisney: try the couch to 5K program! It makes it totally do-able! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #162 8:03PM
Is that an app? ;) I'll look it up, thanks. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 8:05PM
There is a whole online program and some great apps that use the program! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #162 8:07PM
A 5K is totally do-able. A lot of people walk two or three times that in a single DL day :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  641.5 #335 8:04PM
Is that an app? ;) I'll look it up, thanks. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 8:05PM
@ladylikesdisney: you should look into the couch to 5k program. It slowly helps build your endurance over a 9 or 10 week period. I'm on week 2 day 3 and doing pretty good (except the days I have the stroller...ugh!) - kss4tink  218.0 #1828 8:05PM

I completely agree with michelledork. While most people can walk a brisk 15 min mile, it's very difficult to keep that pace up for 13 miles. You need to train to be able to cover that distance either running or walking. That being said, you all have plenty of time to train, more than 6 months! Challenge yourself and commit to a training plan and you CAN do it! - Mimmy  1442.3 #126 11:19PM

@michelledork I was never telling anyone not to train. When I said she had almost 7 months, I thought that was a given. I don't think anyone could do 13 miles without training, and didn't suggest that. - Melliott  301.2 #961 11:33PM
I'm only doing the 5k, which is certainly doable. And of course I plan to train 😊 - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 8:31AM
Yeah I think any type of exercise or race that is outside of your normal routine requires training! Though I'm sure some people do go into the 1/2 or even 5K thinking they can do it with no training, I can't imagine they get far. ;) - Melliott  301.2 #961 10:47AM
I believe the 5k is about 3 miles so It's definetly doable. - HollyGolightlyPrincess  406.5 #578 11:36PM

Want to SO bad, but I tore my Achilles and I'm not sure I'll be up to snuff by then. Wouldn't want to waste the money. Might try for the Tinkerbell half in Jan if they do it again. - MissFortuosity  61.0 #4551 8:18AM
Ouch! I definitely don't blame you, you need to recover! I think I'd be scared to do anything active after having that injury. :/ - Melliott  301.2 #961 8:32AM
They are doing the Tinkerbell half again next year. My mom found the dates. I'm pretty sure it's around the end of January again. :) - PixarDreamer  245.8 #1466 8:46AM
Yes I just looked as though I can't remember the dates because I'm a dork, I know you have 344 days to train. ;) - Melliott  301.2 #961 10:48AM
I'm on the mend, but all I've been cleared for so far is walking, and I have to admit that doing anything more dies scare me a bit. I'm really excited to hear that the Tinkerbell will be back next year, the should be plenty of time :) - MissFortuosity  61.0 #4551 1:27PM
When? My brother ruptured his Achilles and had a repair back in may, so he isn't allowed to run until a year has passed. - bluefairy  643.8 #332 6:12PM

I just booked it last night! I'm excited! - PrinceTeaJack  944.8 #207 8:38AM

I signed up for the fun run last week. If i can walk 18 miles in 4 hrs for breast cancer i can walk the fun run. I dont want to have jello legs. - ScarfGirl  644.8 #331 8:44AM
That is awesome. Such an amazing cause. Yes...you can do this especially after that!! - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #657 8:47AM
After doing the 18 miles i was out for 2 days! I couldnt feel my legs. But it was all worth it! - ScarfGirl  644.8 #331 8:51AM
I'm sure!! I hear its like that for a lot of people but everyone said it was worth every bruise and blister. I would love to accomplish that too. It's on my personal goal list. - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #657 8:55AM
Funny thing was that when my lil sister signed me up n told me from where to where we were walking i was like ehhh piece of cake! So i didnt train nothing! I did it with no problems but yeah i dont recommend you just jumping in. But when i finished it felt so empowering! Now everytime i pass where i did it i smile! - ScarfGirl  644.8 #331 9:04AM

@ladylikesdisney consider getting a kettlebell workout!  I'm doing the Bob Harper ones to strengthen my legs and core muscles.  It's pretty intense, and will help tone the muscle in your legs for a comfortable run or jog even :)  They sell it at Target.  Just be sure to get a weight you can handle, like 10-15 lbs would be a good start :) - TheBudd  357.3 #688 10:54AM
Thanks for the advice! I wonder if my gym has them. I'll have to look into it - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 10:57AM
If your gym has a free weight area where the dudes go to lift and grunt, then most likely yes they will have them! The workout DVD I mentioned comes with a 30 min workout AND the kettlebell to do it for less than $40. Just do what you can til it burns, then stop and let your muscles repair over the next day. - TheBudd  357.3 #688 11:05AM
I've been doing kettlebells for 5 years! I used to work at a gym and took my first class and was hooked. Now I use Andrea DuCane's DVDs. Totally awesome complement to running! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  641.5 #335 11:16AM
Thank you both for the input! Added kettlebells to my to do list - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 11:18AM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  301.2 #0 2:46PM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them.

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.7 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7517 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  446.1 #522 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  182.2 #2293 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.6 #1045 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #76130 12:12PM
