Here's the special theme park ticket price sheet for LRRCers who signed up to run as a club member on their Disney Marathon Weekend registration: https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B8RzeeEmAnZLMzMxNzdmMjktMTk0ZC00OThkLWJiZDItZGU2Nzk0MTAwYjMy&hl=en&authkey=CJC58MsJ

It mentions a site. The site will be online closer to the event date. I will post that information as soon as it becomes available. Remember, you get a FREE theme park pass for Monday, Jan 10th as part of your registration. So you will just need passes for any other days you are there.
