2 on Tuesday
runDisney announced the event calendar for 2015-2016 late last week. Immediately, social media erupted (okay, it actually did twice once when they posted and quickly removed and then when they "officially" published it) because of a couple of noticeable absences. The first, Expedition Everest in 2016. I am not really surprised for 2 reasons - 1) there have been rumors of Everest's cancellation for a while now. If they aren't planning on holding it in 2016, it's not a huge shock; 2) it's kinda the blacksheep of races and is often announced last minute. Might still happen and we just don't know yet.
The next item that is missing? Tower of Terror in 2015. When they first published it and then it went away, people assumed it was to add TOT. But alas, the official one didn't have it either. runDisney has since confirmed that TOT is "suspended" for 2015. One hopes it will come back in 2016, but who knows? There is a lot of speculation about why - construction at Hollywood Studios (which doesn't make sense since W&D goes through a larger portion of HS and it's not cancelled); to make room for a Disneyland Paris event? Personally, I don't know. I am just glad I did it before it got suspended!
In other runDisney news, lots of Wine and Dine updates were posted to the runDisney website. They published the event guide and course maps. The course map hasn't changed - in fact they didn't even change the date on the map (seriously, it still says 2013. Seriously?). But of course, most important is waivers and corral assignments. My number puts me in Corral B. It's only a couple of weeks away! Can't wait!
