    If I’m signed up for the Goofy and Challenge, and, by any chance the Dopey opens can I upgrade on the website

    Hello there, Kelly!

    This Jersey girl is so happy that you stopped by planDisney. Congratulations on training for Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge. This huge accomplishment deserves lots of carbs from Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria pre or post-race. Before you even ask, their pizza is just as good as New Jersey pizza.

    Kelly, I’ve had good luck in the past upgrading my runDisney races depending on availability, but you can’t downgrade your race to a shorter race. I recommend that you contact runDisney via email or over the phone to see how or if you can begin the process. There may be a transfer fee and a transfer deadline that you may need to keep in mind. 

    Stay tuned closer to the race weekend to see the runDisney course maps. Typically, they come out about two to three weeks in advance of the race weekend. I know last year, the Half Marathon ended in EPCOT. I’m not sure if you have any friends or family joining you during race weekend, but if so, there are some very convenient spectator viewing areas available at the fish line. My family tracked my location last year by watching the Runner Tracking feature on the Spectator Info page on the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend website. 

    If you’re looking for a bit of extra motivation while you’re training, I recommend listening to the runDisney playlist to give your feet a bit of extra pixie dust. 

    May the magic be with you!
