Running a Disney race is truly fun-filled experience and every mile is magic. The music, the fireworks, the characters along the course, and running through the theme parks all contribute to a race experience that is unique and unparalleled. Disney races are extremely popular, so it is always best to register for a race as soon as registration becomes available since the races do fill up. But it is not too late to sign up, and you still have time to make every mile magic.

Run runDisney Vacation Packages – Now, runDisney is making planning and running a race even more magical, because when you register for the race you can also book a Magic Your Way package.

So, not only do you get to register for your race, you also get to book your Disney vacation before it is available to the general public. The Magic Your Way Base Package includes a Disney resort and theme park ticket. Disney has over 25 themed resorts to choose from, as well as customizable theme park tickets. All it takes is the cost of the race(s) and a $200 deposit on a Magic Your Way Package. Prices will vary according to resort and theme park ticket choices; dining options are also available.
While it is not necessary to stay at a Disney resort to run a Disney race, it really is the best option.

And, staying on property will make your race experience even more magical
