    Hi! We are a family of 4 (two boys 7 and 10 yrs) from Sweden planning to visit Disney World during the Marathon Weekend in January 2013. I will run the marathon and the boys might attend one of the junior races. What package do you suggest?

    Hi Kari!  The 20th anniversary marathon is going to be very special!  I can't wait!

    I also have two boys.  They did their first kids races at Disney when they were the same ages as yours.  My oldest son ran the Mickey Mile, and my youngest did the 200 meters.  They have recently begun running with me in the 5K's and that is a lot of fun too!

    You will want to stay at a Disney resort so that you can take advantage of the free bus transportation to and from all race weekend events.  You can call the number below to see about package deals and the option of including the dining plan.  My family usually gets the Magic Your Way with park hopper option tickets (so we can visit multiple parks on the same day) and we add the Disney dining plan.  The dining plan will save you around 20 percent if you use it correctly. 

    Here is the information on the Marathon weekend travel details page:

    * Each Guest who books through 407-WDW-IRUN and registers for a four (4) or more night stay at a select Walt Disney World® Resort hotel during Marathon Weekend will receive one souvenir runDisney keepsake gift. You can also purchase your race registration and add the Disney Dining Plan to your package when you book.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!  Your family will have an amazing runDisney vacation!
