    We have a hotel reservation, flights and park tickets for Disneyland. But could not get registered for the Halloween 5k/10k at Disneyland. Any suggestions on how we can before I cancel my hotel, flight and park tickets. We are military and first time to CA

    Hello there, Jurgen. Thanks for racing over to planDisney with your question!

    Congratulations on planning your first Disneyland Resort vacation and for wanting to run Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon Weekend races, Jurgen! I have a soft spot for Disneyland runDisney races, as I ran my first half marathon there - and I've been hooked on Disney races ever since. From the character sightings on the course to the enjoyment of running through Disney parks, nothing compares to Disney races!

    Jurgen, I'm sorry to hear that you were unable to secure registration for the Halloween 5K and 10K races last week. As with many runDisney events, registration tends to sell out quickly, and this one was no exception. However, rest assured that all hope is not lost. You may be able to secure a bib through one of the participating charities listed on the runDisney website for the race weekend. Unlike registering for the event directly, these charities have a limited number of bibs available for runners who wish to fundraise for the charity's cause. You will want to contact the charities directly to see what bibs they have available. This is an awesome option as you would not only get to participate in a runDisney race but you would be fundraising for a good cause!

    Very occasionally runDisney will reopen some of the races for registration on a rolling basis. This is not guaranteed but may be worth a shot. Some social media sites track these openings and may help you secure that coveted race registration if you sign up for their notifications. Please note that while registration openings may occur between now and race day, they sell out just as quickly as the initial runDisney registration.

    Even if these two options don't help you register for the races, Jurgen, I do hope that you will still consider visiting Disneyland in September. It is the perfect time to experience Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort! From the Main Street Pumpkin Festival to the fantastic Halloween overlays in both theme parks, it's a spooky good time!

    Jurgen, I hope this information helps and you snag those race registrations! I'm happy to help so please come back by and ask me any other questions that you may have.

    Make every mile magic, Jurgen.
