    All signs point to all resorts being host resorts. So it more depends on your preference.
    I'm fairly certain that given a tiara and a nice cape, I could save the world--one sequin at a time.

    I'm hoping for Beach Club or Boardwalk.

    Agreed. Looks like MEI has some nice rooms for the weekend. It would probably be a little too cold for Stormalong Bay so Boardwalk will be just fine

    Looking for someone to run the relay with. I come down (from Chicago) every year for the race and wanted to try something different this time. If anyone is interested in teaming up, please let me know.

    Beach Club, or Boardwalk are nice as they are close to the start, and you can walk through Epcot after the race back to the hotel (if you have the energy and a park pass). We did the half in 2009 and went on rides on the way back to Beach Club.

    I'm interested in finding a partner for the Chip & Dale. The inaugural part has me doubly interested.

    I'm still partnerless. I anticipate a 3 hour finish for whichever leg I do. Assuming the Donald doesn't do me in....but I have no reason to suspect it will.

    Do you want to partner up? I will be in Novi on the 16th and 17th of this month for business so we could meet up to work out the details if you wish.
