    I am planning a vacation around the time of the princess half and will soon register for that. I have a family of 6 and plan to stay for a week? How do I get started booking the place to stay? How can I find out about discounts?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle! 

    I hope you are looking forward to participating in the 2016 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend! I also hope you were able to successfully complete your registration. 

    There are a couple of ways to get your accommodations booked for this race (and hopefully get a good deal, too). 

    1. Book your accommodations now on the Walt Disney World Resort Website to ensure your top choice of resort. Then, when room-only Special Offers are released in late fall that include dates during the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, you can modify your reservation to reflect the change in price. You do not want to wait until this promotion is released, as rooms will be very limited by then. 

    2.Top suggestion: Book through an official runDisney Travel Provider. These partners offer discounted room rates on select resorts as well as discounted theme park tickets! To begin looking into this option, visit the Disney Princess Half Marathon homepage on the runDisney website (click the highlighted link) and select the REGISTRATION tab. From there, select the Travel Providers tab and a whole list of providers offering discounted rooms will be listed with their links. I've had a lot of success with Get Travel Sports! 

    I hope this helps get you started. Michelle! And please do not hesitate to reach out to me with all your questions. I am here to help you plan a magical race-cation, from the start line to the finish line.
