    Good evening, where do I go to rlget a Disney account in prep for applying for the marathon races next year please?

    Hi there, Liz!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask me your question. There’s nothing quite like running magical miles through Walt Disney World Resort. After completing a runDisney race, you’ll want to do it again and again. Soon, I will complete my fourth runDisney race, and I can’t wait! Let’s get into how you can make your dream come true, too. 

    First things first, you’ll want to visit the runDisney website. Look for the tab called “Help & Support” or scroll down to the bottom of any of the site’s webpages to find the section. Select “Manage Your Account.” If you have a Disney account, like the one you used to sign into the planDisney website, you can use the same one to log in to your runDisney account. There, you can see any of your upcoming events or past events. 

    What can you do to prep for registration? I highly recommend that you know the registration dates of the races that you have your eye on. They sell out quickly, and the virtual races, which are open for a bit longer, are usually not open to international Guests. So, you’ll want to be ready if you want to run in person. For example, the registration dates for next January’s Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend are April 2, 2024 for Club runDisney members and April 9, 2024 for the general public. 

    On registration day, visit the webpage for the specific race that you’re signing up for. Registration typically opens around 10 a.m. EST. I’m ready to go a few minutes before then (and sometimes using two devices in case one has a slightly faster Internet speed).

    I hope that this helps, Liz. If you need more clarification, feel free to revisit me here at planDisney. I would be more than happy to help you. Happy training!

    Magic always,
