    My high school cross country team & I would like to participate in a "Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend" race. How do we get a Disney hotel for about 20 girls? Can we all register together in bulk for the 5K race? Also any other plan tip

    Hi, Ellie! 

    I can't think of a better way to commemorate a great season of cross country than to participate as a team in the Royal Family 5k during Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend. 

    When making travel arrangements for a larger group, runDisney's group sales office can assist you in making reservations when needing 10 or more rooms-- they may be reached directly by calling 1(407)828-3200 and selecting option 3. If you are in need of a smaller allotment of rooms, you will book through the runDisney general reservations line when travel package information is released in July. Keep an eye on the Travel Tab of the runDisney website, this is where travel package and booking information will post once available. When booking, be sure to request adjoining rooms, a representative told me directly they will do everything they can to accommodate your team's request.

    As far as registering in bulk, that is not an available option. Registration is done one runner at a time through However, once a single form is completed, there is the option to "register another runner". To ensure everyone gets into the race, designate several people to register multiple runners individually. Races sell-out fast and this strategy will help ensure registration success if each person is not able to register themselves. 

    Registration opens to the public Tuesday, July 16th, at Noon EST. Also, consider registering for runDisney Email Notifications-- I wouldn't want you to miss out on important registration information and race details as we near July.

    Are you a local team, Ellie, or will you be traveling? I would love to know more details, so I may provide more great travel tips for you and your team. I look forward to hearing from you again.

    Happy Running!
