Here is a photo from the starting line of yesterday's Inaugural Disneyland Paris half marathon. There were only 4 corrals (A-D). But, they divided each corral into very small groups to start. We didn't start until at least 7:45!

Cool!  - disneycm  741.5 #11 12:49PM
That's different. I am also surprised at the start time being so late.  - mzdisnee  571.5 #15 1:42PM
The French (and the Italians) don't do mornings! The theme parks don't even open until 10 am! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 1:27PM
Wow that is different. Hope you had a great time  - mmddgp  1320.7 #5 8:30PM
I must be more French than I realized- I don't do mornings either. (French is what I teach all day.) - teaching76  30.5 #0 2:03AM
I knew it: my parents must've adopted me from France, Italy, or Spain ๐Ÿ˜‚ my husband's side of our family are all out the door by 6 am and in bed at 7:30-8. Everyone thinks I'm a weirdo  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.2 #335 6:31AM
That's an early start time for here! I'm guessing it was because they wanted to open the parks promptly   9am would be more typical.  - rink2  306.0 #30 9:24AM
We like our leisurely breakfasts ! - rink2  306.0 #30 9:25AM

Do you know how many runners? Was it as crowded as your other Disney races? - jacdanfan  13432.2 #6 9:45PM
I don't know how many runners there were, but it was comparable to other runDisney race weekends. There were a LOT of Americans as well as French and Brits. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 12:23AM
There were a lot going for that C to C medal. Do you think it will be as popular next year? I must admit there were less runners than I expected.  - rink2  306.0 #30 9:26AM
My guess is there will be fewer resources miners next year. I wouldn't expect many of the Americans who made the trip this year to make it again next year. But, some people f those who couldn't make the inaugural year may go next year! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 3:39AM
Wow that's interesting--did you like the smaller start groups?  Seems like that might help alleviate congestion.  Is that the hotel peeking through, under the arches?  What a great experience!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.2 #335 6:33AM
I didn't like the start set up - it seemed so slow. Once in the course which was very narrow in parts it made sense. That is the Disneyland Hotel in the background.  - rink2  306.0 #30 9:22AM
Thanks for the feedback.  I don't know if you've done a DL race or not, but it can get very congested since it's so narrow, and I'm guessing that this would be somewhat similar.  Luckily I've been placed in "B" corral at DL the last couple races--so that helps a lot, but I've always wondered what it would be like if they metered people at the start line a bit more.  It would be hard to wait though, I see what you mean.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.2 #335 4:01PM
I agree, it was a VERY SLOW start! But, it did help with congestion quite a bit. I was back in corral C and from asking around there was a BIG variety of paces in that group. But, I didn't find it to be a problem due to the staggered start. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 3:42AM

When the pictures are THAT good, send all you wantโ—๐Ÿ˜€ On an unrelated subject: I should know this by now but I'm sorry that I don't: What is a RAKโ“๐Ÿ˜โฐ - Radio-Man  194.8 #46 10:57AM
A RAK is a random act of kindness. Someone on the DL side has some extra DCA guide maps with the Tower of Terror on the cover. People indicate an interest and then they randomly choose. This RAK said you had to have 25 points.  - teaching76  30.5 #0 11:15AM
@teaching76 did you get the maps? I have a few extra. And RAK was started by DAHULAGIRL way back in the beginning of MouseWait. She's was a  lovely lady and unfortunately passed. So now we continue to do RAKs and  to honor her too. basically it's just something you do to be kind,  and its usually you give something away or you're at the park and you do something for someone. It can be anything but since this is an online community it ends up as getting things at the park or have an extra pins and RAKKING  them. And you make your own rules. So   some people will put a point minimum or a distance minimum on their RAKs. Or whoever enters the RAK has to answer a certain question or follow a certain rule . And then other people just RAK  with no rules!  - secretagentangel  8515.6 #11 4:35PM
@secretagentangel I did get the maps. Thanks for asking. I didn't know all that about RAKs. That's interesting history of MW. Can you tell me how I DM? - teaching76  30.5 #0 5:20PM

You would. It's such a tribute to Walt and his family. Starters were Caesar salad, smoked salmon and duck - we all sampled each other's. Then sea bass which was delicious, fillet of beef and my fancy pasta just sounds plain old boring but was very tasty. I sneaked in a lemon merangue pie too! There were a lot of French there, I think it's a Saturday night favourite for locals.  - rink2  306.0 #30 5:02AM

Happy Tuesday, friends! This time last month, I was getting ready for a quick weekend trip... feels like over a year ago, ugh! I took advantage of Disney's bounce back offer while we were there, and booked our next family trip (with free dining) with Mr I and the boys the first weekend in June, but thinking of changing our dates to early December 2017. It will have been 5 years since Jonah has   More...

Good morning Maggie! The first weekend in June is an OK time to visit, we find the Crowds Are mild to medium however the heat can be an issue. As far as 2017 planning goes, we have thrown around the idea of skipping a few years of Disney, and traveling to new places. - DizneyGirl  1153.2 #8 6:40AM
