    I'm guessing there's a bit of a space issue. Not enough room for lots of runners.

        Nope, there is no charity just Disney's pocketbook. This is lame and ALL proceeds should be going to a charity.

          This is a half marathon as well. I did this race last year and am debating whether it is worth $95 and a hotel stay for probably two nights.

            Well, event though the Marathon doesn't have a specific charity assigned to it, doesn't Disney contribute to charitable causes anyway?

              Many Marathons are run by Non-Profit companies, and any profits are 100% given to charity...

              Disney, on the other hand, looks at this event as another way to make a profit.

              Kevin Yee's article posted this morning at MiceAge shows the ways Disney is cutting back on the event to increase profit.

              Higher fees, and less port-a-potties is not a good combination.
