    I am looking to plan a trip in April 2024 for the Disney 10 miler. I know that running events sell out quickly, so I need to get ahead of the game. I was looking to talk to someone to help me plan our vacation. Is there a specific link I need?

    Welcome to planDisney, Krista! I'm so glad you stopped by with your question and I'm happy to chat with you. 

    I will actually be running the Hakuna Matata 10-Miler this coming April as well, so I understand your sense of urgency. I did a quick check and I would recommend registering just as soon as you can because it looks like the 5K and 10K races have both sold out for the Springtime Surprise Weekend 2024. To register you'll want to first visit the runDisney website. Please note that if you're registering more than one runner, you'll need a date of birth, t-shirt size, and email address associated with a My Disney Experience account. After that, it's quick and easy! From the runDisney website, start by scrolling down until you can click on the blue highlighted label under the Springtime Surprise Weekend heading that reads, "View Details." You'll be taken to another page that shows all events for the weekend. Any races still available will show a "Register Now" button.

    Now, Krista, once you have secured your running registration, I would encourage you to book your hotel room or vacation package if you're planning to stay onsite at a Disney Resort Hotel. You can begin by searching for availability by entering your travel dates to view hotel availability. Some runners come only for race weekend and others choose to extend their visit before or after to soak up some additional pixie dust. Once you see all available Disney Resort Hotels for your selected dates, you can follow the prompts to book your stay. You can also add theme park tickets to your package before checking out. 

    Krista, I hope this helps get you started on your road to running! Once you have your registration and vacation package booked, please come on back with any additional questions you might have. My fellow panelists and I love to provide park itinerary recommendations, dining suggestions, and more. 

    Wishing you a wonderful race and Magical weekend.
