I'd love to, doc! But I've already pushed the limit. Originally, 2014 was going to be a non-Disney vacation year because I got two trips each in 2012 and 2013. And instead I talked Benn into an AP and then managed to weasel an extra weekend out of it from what we originally had planned. AND I'm getting a Disneyland add-on when we go on our California cruise in March, so I'm pushing my luck with my husband's patience! laugh I'm soon going to have to make good on the Universal trip promise that I made like 11 years ago..."sure honey, of course we can go to Universal some time." Of course, I'm bargaining to do the Backstage Magic tour (which does not require separate park admission) on that trip! mickey

I'm regretting not running TOT now that's it's gone sad You should try the Wine and Dine half. It's another night race with an after party (F&W booths are open) and it was so much fun! Especially running through the Osbourne lights mickey

It's definitely on my radar!! Although I did notice that neither ToT or Wine & Dine are on the list that was released for next year and I did hear some rumors floating around at ToT that they might be combining them next year and only doing one fall night race. I assume that it has something to do with the construction at DHS. I loved running at night and I'm pretty sure that I liked that more than I would like to run a long race in the early morning.

Have you told Ben that there is a really good discount for DVC renewing? It is enough to not let mine go. mickey

I see $409 for AP and $509 for PAP. Is that what you got? Since we had a PAP, I think the rule is that in order to get the renewal rate we would have to get a PAP again, right?

not sure on that - but I would think that an AP of any variety would work as a renew. Could be wrong however. Member services would have to clarify that. Either way the renewal price is awesome compared to the "real" price.

I just had a PAP and renewed down to an AP. You still get the renewal discount.
