I grew up going to Disneyland at least once a year. I live in Northern Nevada and I have passed on the obsession to my two little girls and all of my kindergarteners!

A quick question for all the runners: is it worth it to get your 10k pace time sent in? Or is starting in the last corral a recipe for disaster? I know I can do this in under 3:30, I just am having a hard time finding 10k runs near me that will count (most are virtual runs). Any advice would be much appreciated!!!!

The only thing with starting the back is that is where most of the walkers can be found.  So here is suggestion, if you can't submit a time get to your corral early.  That way you can be in the front.  That will put you in front of that group of walkers.  Then you will just have to work your way up from there.   Not ideal but if you can't submit a time that will be best.  - PrincessAuroraMomma  603.0 #394 3:09PM
It is more than worth it! Every corral I have moved up has improved my race experience. You start sooner and the front corrals are smaller. Think of the thousands of fewer runners on the course ahead of you! A less crowded course makes for a better experience. Finally, being stuck in a corral with runners slower than you is no fun! You can only go as fast as those around you and can waste a lot of energy trying to zigzag around slower runners and walkers.  - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.6 #6 3:23PM
How do you turn in a time?  On run Disney?  Thanks. - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #238 4:01PM
Yes, there's instructions on run disney MinnieMousewife - Spoonful_O_Sugar  707.5 #329 4:13PM
Great, thank you!! @Spoonful_O_Sugar - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #238 4:26PM
In my point of view, it's worth it to get that 10k pace turned in, if you think you'll do well in an earlier corral.  I didn't submit proof of time for my first half (like you, I didn't have any local races that would qualify).  I am an active person and I trained for a 2:20-2:30 finish, but because I didn't get proof submitted, I was placed in the third to last corral.  I did get frustrated in the narrower sections going through DL because everyone around me was quite a bit slower than my natural pace--it's hard to slow down when you're in a groove, my muscles start to get tight.  More importantly, though, I found that many didn't seem to follow runner etiquette (ex: walkers stay to the right; groups should try to stay single-file or move in pairs; runners pass on the left, etc).  The last few corrals have way more people in them than the earlier ones, too. There were times I felt slightly unsafe and I witnessed a girl trying to jog (and doing the right thing by passing on the left) fall hard because others weren't paying attention.  You're going to be the most comfortable if you're placed with people who have a similar pace as yours, so if you think you'd do well in an earlier corral, my advice is to sign up for a 10K that will give you an accurate and official proof of time, even if it means going out of your area.  👍 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  707.5 #329 3:37PM
Thank you so much for the advice y'all!!  I am truly so appreciative!!   - preggoprincess  238.3 #1634 5:36PM

Oh my, I just signed up for the Star Wars 1/2....and I swore I'd only run if I was being chased!! ;) I was wondering if anyone has purchased the ChEAR Squad package before? If so, was it worth it? Any tips and advice are appreciated!

That's how most runners start and then when you cross finish line (with a tear of happiness that you did it) you'll be hooked. Do 2-4 short runs a week (30-45 mins) then one long run during that same week (hour or increase in miles each week). You'll cross finish line easily like that  - MarshaMouse  5055.5 #34 3:09PM
That doesn't work for everybody. Our schedule was 2 30 minute run/walk sessions. Of course working on increasing the amount of time we ran. Then on Saturdays we would do our distance. Even after 6 months my distance time did not go down. - Lelundrial  1042.6 #218 3:20PM
if your goal is just to cross finish line, then just run. To PR (beat personal record) that's another list. Hills, sprinting in between runs, hamstring, quad and core training. But just run and enjoy it. Get those 3 runs in a week minimum and you'll finish.  - MarshaMouse  5055.5 #34 5:41PM
I did my first 1/2 in May for the Tinkerbell and I was 32 weeks. I walked the entire marathon. As long you can keep up the 16 minute pace you'll be fine. I'm doing the 10K for Star Wars. Like @MarshaMouse said you get hooked and it's true. Star Wars will be 3rd run for Disney plan to do the 5K in DL in September. Good luck! :) - TheZaragozaFam  13.9 #0 9:27PM

Yay! Trip booked for the first week of December! I told LilPrincess that we could do Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique this time. Any suggestions on which package to choose? Any tips for BBB I should know? Input would be much appreciated!

We bought The Castle Package.  It was well worth the money.  It includes a photo package and the dresses are surprisingly good quality.  If you have a photo pass make sure you have that ready.  We got some really great pictures on that as well.  They really pamper them. Have fun! - luvthemouse  280.6 #1192 11:17AM
Thanks for the info! 😊 - preggoprincess  238.3 #1634 11:49AM
Castle package also comes with a front of the line pass to the princess fantasy Faire meet and greet. Your fairy godmother announces your princess while she walks to the Faire through the back door of the boutique, waving at all the kingdom along the way. That right there is worth the $ for this package!  - MeridaFan  4703.0 #39 12:03PM
Oh my goodness she would cry with happiness!  Thank you for the info!!😍 - preggoprincess  238.3 #1634 12:24PM
If you have an AP, your merchandise discount applies to this package, as well. Princess gown, makeover, accessories, makeup and picture package also included. Make sure to pre-order the PhotoPass Plus two weeks before your trip and you pay just $69.99 for it rather than $99.99. This will include all the digital copies of photopass pix you have taken at the park. If you eat at Goofy's Kitchen or Ariel's Grotto or Breakast with Minnie, those photos are included as well. Also, you will get the digital downloads from all ride pix in the parks where they take your pic (Space Mtn, Splash Mtn, RSR, Ca Screamin', ToT). I love the photo pass plus! - MeridaFan  4703.0 #39 1:05PM
We bought the Castle Package as well. That includes the dress, crown & wand with hair, nails & make-up. Plus photo package with three printed photos and they let us take lots of pics with our own camera. The line pass for Fantasy Faire is amazing, my daughter loved being escorted by her Fairy Godmother. We don't have AP's anymore 😭 but I was given a discount (20% I think) for using my Chase Disney card. Hope your LilPrincess has an amazing time!  - MyPunzel711  36.7 #0 1:31PM
