Default DVC/AP Early Marathon Registration

I just realized I registered for the marathon last April and didn't want to miss my DVC early window... but somehow it seems they don't know when that's going to be. The race goes on sale to everybody in a week so I don't understand how they don't know when the presale starts.

Has anybody seen more information about this? Registration page links to perks pages, which say to check the registration page.

Correct, 4/17 is when the race will open to all registrants. I am assuming that the week prior it will open to DVC members.

Thanks. As best I can tell it looks like this the DVC window was the 4 days prior to delayed registration opening for Wine and Dine, so I'll have to check back over the weekend.

Seems like all race registrations have been delayed for awhile. More info coming in June!

From the RunDisney website:

"UPDATE REGARDING REGISTRATION DATES. We are working to create a more streamlined race registration experience for runDisney participants. As a result, registration for the 2018-19 Walt Disney World race event weekends will be temporarily delayed; however, all races are still scheduled for this season as planned. Registration for this summer's Virtual Running Shorts Series and the June 5K will open on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at noon ET. We apologize for the delay and will have more information to share on June 1 regarding registration for all remaining races. "

There's been a lot of talk that Active may be having issues with credit card fraud or CC numbers being stolen from them. That's sounding more plausible as something like that would be a reason for a huge delay.

Ah, thanks. I'm not a huge fan of Active as it is, but perhaps they are under a multi-year contract and can't easily bail. I don't buy that they need until 6/1 to work on the ease of registration
