Default RunDisney cutbacks?

For those of you who are signed up for the run Disney races there are a lot of reports that there were no characters on the 5K race today at Disneyland. And there are reports that they will not be characters on 10K tomorrow. If this trend continues I would think long and hard about paying close to $100 for a 5K

$100 is already more than I would pay for a 5K (if I ran 5Ks, but I won't get out of bed for less than 10K ). It's also more than I would pay for a 10K.

Characters are not a draw for me and I'd likely be willing to pay a little more if there were no characters. But I do realize that a lot of people run the race for the characters, so this is a downgrade.

We've found that Disney races are just too expensive. The value proposition is not there. When Wine & Dine was at night, and included the roll into Epcot until 3AM, that was cool. Now it's just another standard, overpriced, overcrowded race.

Yes, I wish Disney would go back to Wine & Dine at night! That, along with the Tower of Terror 10 Mile and Expedition Everest Challenge 5K, were totally unique and worth spending the money and training time on. I actually ran because of these events
