    I’m planning to visit WDW during the wine and dine half marathon in November 2024. How far in advance would you recommend booking hotel and park tickets?

    Hi Sara! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited that you are visiting during the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend! This is such a fun event and is held during a great time of the year. You are going to have a blast!

    With 2024 vacation packages available to book now, I suggest securing your reservations as soon as possible. When bundling your Disney Resorts hotel and park tickets together, you're only required to pay an initial deposit upon booking. You'll then have up to 30 days before your arrival to pay off the balance. It's also essentially a worry-free booking since you have the option to cancel your trip if needed. If you decide to do so 30 days before you arrive, you'll receive back the full amount that you have paid to date. Booking your stay early will allow you to choose from the widest selection of resort rooms. Disney Resorts hotels tend to fill up quickly, especially during a busy runDisney event weekend. 

    If you plan on running in this event, registration opens on March 5th for Club runDisney members and on March 12th for everyone else. Make sure to save these dates since this race typically sells out quickly. While I have yet to run in one of these amazing races, I have visited to cheer on some friends who have participated. I had so much fun watching that I can only imagine how incredible it is to participate.

    Sara, I hope you have a magical time during your visit next year! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    Happy planning!
