    Amy from ME Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I'm signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February. Are there any deals for runners staying at the resort?

    Hi there Amy, and welcome to planDisney!

    You must be so excited that in just a couple of months it'll be time to lace up and run 13.1 magical miles alongside the Disney Princesses. I love this event, and I'm thrilled that runDisney is part of our world again. 

    At this time, there are no rates in hotels of the Disney Resorts Collection specifically for royal runners. I recommend checking out the Special Offers page to view deals available to the general public (these are updated as new discounts are released). When participating in a runDisney event, I like to stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort or Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort for their convenient locations near the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo and starting area. 

    Guests who work in certain industries might also be eligible for special rates at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel or Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. Nurses, doctors, firefighters, paramedics, medical personnel, teachers, school support staff, law enforcement, and government employees qualify for discounts at these hotels. While not part of the Disney Resorts Collection, the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel offer some fantastic onsite benefits to their guests like Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Theme Park Hours. As teachers, my husband and I love to take advantage of special rates available to educators at these hotels, and you can't beat the location, just steps away from EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. You'll need to call these hotels or book on their websites to apply occupational discounts.

    I hope this is helpful as you dash to the finish line, Amy. Thanks for coming to see us at planDisney, and if there's anything else we can do before you step up to the starting line, don't hesitate to reach out again. Best wishes completing all the magical miles as you train for the main event, and we'll see ya real soon!
