    My daughter wants to run a half marathon next year possibly. If I book rooms as a member through DVC will we have access to all the same help/information that is provided if we booked through the runDiney travel plan.

    Hi Patricia, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am excited to hear that your daughter is thinking about running a half marathon during one of your upcoming trips to Walt Disney World! I have participated in a number of runDisney events, and assure you that whether you are participating as a runner, walker, or spectator, runDisney events truly are some of the most special and memorable races. In fact, if you haven't already heard, Every Mile is Magic!

    I am happy to confirm that if you booked your Disney Resort hotel reservation using Disney Vacation Club points, you will still have full access to all of the same benefits as other runDisney Resort Guests, including complimentary event transportation to and from all Disney Resort hotels.

    Don't forget that with runDisney, spectators chEARing on their runners are also included in all the fun. Typically ChEAR Squad packages are available to purchase 2-3 months prior to each runDisney event and are a great way to enhance your spectating experience. ChEAR Squad packages are different for each event, but can include everything from reserved prime viewing locations along the course, reserved access to the finish line grandstands, dedicated restrooms, hospitality tents, Disney character Meet & Greets, and awesome runDisney swag! Please visit the runDisney website for your specific race event for complete details and registration information.  

    Please let your daughter know about the great training resources available on the runDisney website to help her get ready for her race. Official runDisney Training Consultant Jeff Galloway has designed Training Programs specific to each race.

    Wishing both you and your daughter a Magical runcation!
