    My daughter and I want to do the Neverland 5K at Disneyland , Jan 19 2014. It will be our first 5K and race ever. Are there going to be any packages with rooms available? Any other advice for us? We are both excited and nervous.

    Hi Jennifer!

    This is so exciting for you and your daughter!  RunDisney races are the perfect first race events!

    There will be some packages offered for Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend.  You will be able to find information about them on the Disneyland Travel page of the runDisney website

    I think you will have a better experience if you stay at one of the Disneyland Resorts.  They are all so fun, and being within walking distance of the race and all the Disney parks is a great convenience.  It will definitely help lessen the stress of travel once you arrive.

    If you haven't already, be sure to check out runDisney's trainer, Jeff Galloway, for running tips.  He has a great run/walk/run method that uses running and walking intervals that are perfect for both new and experienced runners.  I love using the run/walk intervals, no matter what distance I am going.  You can also read more about his  method on his website,

    Most of all, though, HAVE FUN!  A lot of people will be in fun (but comfortable) costumes.  It's a very relaxed race and there will be lots of photo opportunities along the way! 

    Please let me know if you have any other questions leading up to this race!
