    Hi Faith, I registered for my first half marathon, the Princess Half, in Feb. I know transportation is provided if you stay at a Disney resort. I wondered if you had any recommendations for where to stay? My husband will also be with me. Thx!

    Hi, Anne!

    I am so excited to hear you will be participating in your very first half marathon during the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. You are going to have an enchanting time running with your peers in this princess-filled event. 

    Helping guests decide where to stay is one of my favorite questions to receive! It's also one of my favorite aspects of planning a runDisney-cation. Walt Disney World® Resort offers three levels of pricing for accommodations, so no matter what you've budgeted, there will be something available to meet your needs. 

    I have two, fun posts that were recently featured on the runDisney Blog that I think you will find helpful when choosing the perfect Resort Hotel accommodations for race weekend. Just select the highlighted links to read all about it.

    Selecting the Perfect Castle Part II (how to get a great deal)

    And regardless of where you choose to stay, all Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels are considered Host Hotels for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend - event transportation will be provided for all races activities. 

    I hope you have a wonderful race, Anne! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions that may come up as you plan and prepare for your first race-cation! 

    Happy Training!
