    When is the best time to book your stay for the runDisney Marathon! I want to make sure I get the best deal but have never booked before! Thank you !

    Hi, Marisa! 

    Welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney! When it comes to booking your accommodations for a runDisney race event, the earlier you book the better the chance you have at getting your preferred resort hotel. Especially during Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna® as this is runDisney's largest event of the year.

    Generally, it's a good idea to book around the same time race registration opens to the public. For Marathon Weekend, it's April 28th. Don't for get to mark your calendar - the first step is to get registered.

    Next, decide where you would like to stay. Select the highlighted link to read my post on the runDisney Blog highlighting some of my favorite resorts for a runDisney race weekend.  

    Now, to find a great deal, and there are lots of ways to get one. The great news is, if you book a reservation and a special offer is announced at a later date, you can modify your reservation to reflect the new pricing! Here is a another post on the runDisney Blog on ways to save on that perfect castle

    I hope you find these ideas and information helpful, Marisa! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions you may have. I am here to help you plan a magical runDisney-cation.
