    Hello, I am new to this and am ready to do my first 10K Tinkerbell race May 2017. Problem is just that I am new. How do I register, when do I register, hotel reservations and what is doing it with deferral? Please help. There will be 4 of us. Thank you

    Hi Jeanne!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    No worries!  You will be fine and you're going to love the Tinker Bell 10K.  Registration for that race weekend is set to open on September 20, 2016, at Noon EST.  You will find a link to the registration site on the Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend registration page, but it won't be an active link until registration is open.  

    Here is a link to a blog article I wrote with helpful tips for registering for runDisney events. This has the details you need for actually registering.

    For hotel reservations, you can find travel information on the Disneyland Travel page of the runDisney website, but I recommend calling a runDisney travel specialist at 407-939-4786.  They can help answer your questions and pick the best resort for you!  

    Race deferrals are when someone signs up for a race but then can't run it. In the past, they could defer that registration to the following year.  Currently, runDisney is evaluating their deferral policy for future events.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions before your race.
