    My husband and I are travelling to WDW for the Star Wars Dark Side run in April. Is it worth our time to look at WDW area resorts as well?

    Hi Paulette!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side is a great race weekend.  If you're a Star Wars fan, then you're especially going to love it!

    I always suggest staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts during runDisney race weekends.  There are resort choices for all budget levels and lots of great themes to choose from.  The biggest benefit to staying on property is the complimentary runDisney bus transportation to and from each race weekend event. Plus, the resorts also offer transportation to and from each theme park and Disney Springs.

    You can find more information about booking travel on the runDisney website travel page.  You can also call 407-939-4786 for more information and quotes.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
