    Hi! I am interested in participating at Walt Disney World Marathon in January 2019. I would like to know when the registrations will begin. Thank you.

    Olá Renata!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! As a fellow Brazilian, I am delighted to assist you once again in planning a Disney adventure. I had the chance to run the Walt Disney World Half Marathon this past January. It was my first time participating in a runDisney event, and it was absolutely amazing!

    The runDisney team is currently working on adding more pixie dust to the registration system for all races, but soon you will be able to register for the events you would like to run during the 2019 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. I recommend checking the runDisney website for updates on registration dates.

    Meanwhile, start working on your runDisney spirit by registering for any of the 2018 Virtual Running Shorts events. What I like the most about Virtual Running Shorts is that you can run wherever and whenever you like, and when you are finished with each race you submit your results. I completed the Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon in March and have just received a beautiful medal in my home in Brazil.

    Moms Panel tip: consider staying at a Disney Resort hotel during marathon week. Besides enjoying great benefits and being close to the magic at all times, Disney also provides complimentary transportation for all runners, which makes it convenient to participate in all events. I found this service extremely helpful, especially being an international Guest.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Renata! Please stop by if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
