    My mother and I (62 and 31) are planning to run in the Disney Princess Half 2015. We are trying to decide if we book through Disney or use one of the travel agents. What are the benefits of using one of the agents that I see listed for races over Disney?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah! 

    I am so excited to hear you have plans to run the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon with your mom! This is definitely the perfect race weekend to bring out your inner princess together.

    When booking travel through an official runDisney event partner, you can expect the same level of care and service that you would expect when booking with Disney. In addition, some affiliates offer great deals on resort hotels and specially priced theme park tickets. I've worked with Get Travel on several occasions and have always been satisfied. 

    However, I do recommend keeping an eye on the Travel tab on the runDisney website, in addition to the Special Offers tab on the Walt Disney World® Resort website. There are often great deals to be had directly from Disney that come with the availability of booking your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance for ten days, and linking your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience account, allowing you to make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance-- all part of the Disney difference!

    I also suggest checking out the runDisney Blog. I will soon be posting an article where I discuss this very topic.

    I hope this information has been helpful, Sarah! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have. I am here to help make your race experience as magical as possible.

    Wishing you a magical race!
