    Hi Faith, just reading up on runDisney and seriously considering running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon next February. How far in advance are the hotel choices posted? And how long after registering for the races can the hotel be booked? Thanks!

    Hi, Erica! 

    Welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney! I'm very excited to hear you are planning on participating in the 2016 Disney Princess Half Marathon. Nothing beats a weekend of running with your peers while donning a tutu and tiara. Not to mention over half of the princesses taking part in this royal event will be running their first half marathon -  you will not be alone :)

    When booking accommodations for this runDisney event, you'll be happy to know all Walt Disney World Resort Hotels are "host hotels" for this race. So regardless of where you choose to call your castle for this event, all resorts will be providing transportation to all race activities. You are also able to book your room 499 days in advance, even if you're not registered yet! Since all resorts are hosts, you can book at anytime. 

    Here are some suggestions on my favorite places to stay for a runDisney race weekend. Just select the highlighted link to read all about it! 

    I also have some suggestions on how to save money on that perfect castle

    Hope this helps get you started, Erica! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any of your runDisney vacation planning questions. I am here to help!
