Walt Disney World Marathon New Military Division

For the first time in its history, the organizers of the Walt Disney World Marathon have announced a new military division.

Active, reserve, and retired members of the military are invited to participate in the Walt Disney World Marathon as part of a new military division. Qualified members can participate in one of the following categories: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, or Navy.

Military personnel who have already registered for the Walt Disney World Marathon or Half Marathon and would like to join the military division need to send an e-mail to emmi2@emmi.com with participant's name, address, and military division.

The Walt Disney World Marathon and Half Marathon are held once a year in early January. The next event is on January 9, 2005.

Although the half marathon has traditionally filled up well before this period, neither the full nor half events are full, and registration is still available. This may be due to an increase in maximum-allowable registrants (especially for the half distance), but it may also be due to a scheduling conflict; the very popular Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Marathon is scheduled for the same day, and has announced an inaugural half marathon distance, also for January 9. \

Ears to the ground

…The Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room returned from refurb last Tuesday. The refurbishment included new countertops in the pub, new locks on the pub's liquor cabinets, and reworked bathrooms.

…Demolition of the show building at the 20,000 Leagues lagoon is nearly complete. We've heard a rumor that the the short-term plans for the area will be a Princesses meet-and-greet, rather than Pooh. Still no word on which of the competing plans for the long term are still in the running.


Have any interesting news or rumors? Let us know.
