    Hoping to run in the Princess Half Marathon next year (2/2018), so my husband and I are thinking of doing the Dream 4-day Bahamas cruise afterward. How would we book 2 days before the Cruise and 2 days after the Cruise in the Parks?

    Welcome aboard, Meredith! While I haven't conquered a half marathon with Disney yet, I did take on the Tower of Terror 10-Miler and it was the best race I've ever done. Disney knows how to make everything, including miles and miles of running, magical! I can't think of a better way to relax afterwards than by setting sail with Disney Cruise Line!

    Disney Cruise Line's agents can help you plan a Land and Sea vacation with your cruise as well as parks and resort stays before and after your sailing. They can book everything for you, so give them a call at (800) 951-3532. You'll also have the option of booking Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers to take you from your resort to the port for your cruise, and then back to the resorts afterward, even if you switch resorts. They make is so incredibly easy to transition from land to sea and back again. It's definitely the way to play and cruise! If you're not too exhausted from the half marathon, check out the Castaway Cay 5K. I love this relaxing race around Disney's private island!

    So, take a look at which of the magical Disney World Resorts you'd like to enjoy, then give the Disney Cruise Line agents a call and get that trip booked! Oh, and one more thing: while you're training for the half marathon, be sure to check out the Disney Cruise Line playlist on Spotify. There's no better motivation for those long training runs than some great Disney music that you'll also hear played in the halls of the ship! You'll also find some other runDisney playlists on Spotify, so listen to them all as you picture yourself sailing off into the sunset after crossing the finish line!
    Have fun!
