    My daughter and I are registering for the runDisney 10K & 5K in Jan. Can we do both races or only one? We are DVC members and have annual passes. Can we get hotel discounts or do we need to purchase the packages? How can family members watch the races?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Donnatella! 

    Registration for the 2015 Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend Presented by Cigna® is just a few short weeks away! I hope you are looking forward to running Disney. 

    You can absolutely participate in both the 5k Family Fun Run and the Walt Disney World® 10k, there is no limit on how many races you may choose to run-- in fact, many runners will participate in multiple races this weekend. Just remember you'll need to register for each race separately. 

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member and Annual Passholder, you have the option of early registration beginning Wednesday, April 16th at Noon EST-- I highly recommend registering at this time, races will fill quickly and there are a limited number of spots available. 

    If any discounted travel packages are offered by runDisney as part of this race event, they will be released within the next few weeks. Keep an eye on the Walt Disney World® Resort Travel Tab on the runDisney website. This is where details regarding travel packages will be released. You are not required to purchase an all-inclusive package. If there is discounted resort rates available for this event, you will be able to take advantage of a "room-only" package. 

    Your family's spectating options are a bit limited for these races due to the shorter distances and looping courses that take place within the Epcot® theme park and surrounding areas. For the 5k, the best option will be near the starting line. If you are staying at an Epcot® area resort, there are a lot of great spectating locations along the 10k course at these resorts. 

    I hope this information helps to give you a good starting point, Donatella! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have. 

    Happy Planning!
