    Hello. I plan to run the WDW Full Marathon in 2017. Any advice on what to purchase when registering aside from the race registration fee? Are there other packages for the runners to purchase as far as being able to use a tent or get a massage etc?

    Hi Michelle!

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

    You can register for other things when you register for the marathon.  There is a list provided on the Walt Disney World Marathon website, under the "EVENTS" tab.  My favorite "extra" is the Race Retreat tent.   It's a bit of a splurge but (in my opinion), it's worth it, especially if the weather is cold and/or rainy.  Here is a list of what it includes:
    Pre-Race Amenities
    Pre-race bagels and fruit, plus coffee, water and PowerAde
    Temperature-controlled tent
    Private restrooms and bag check
    Padded stretching area
    Disney character Meet & Greets
    Self-treatment and First Aid station
    Breakfast (Half)
    Brunch (Full)

    Post-Race Amenities
    Live results information area
    Breakfast or Brunch with hot and cold beverages
    Changing tents
    Self-treatment and First Aid station
    10-minute massage for only $10 (based on availability)
    Designated location to meet friends and family to celebrate your accomplishment!*
    Disney character Meet & Greets

    Other Amenities:
    Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend commemorative giveaway item
    Live video feed from the Finish Line
    Information Station

    During registration, you can also purchase commemorative items such as jackets, pins, purses, etc. Most of those items will also be available at the expo during the race weekend but do have a tendency to sell out quickly.  So, if you have your heart set on one, you may want to pre-order it during registration.

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