    Hi! I am in the process of planning a girls trip to Disney World for the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend. I was wondering whether you suggest to wait for the runDisney packages to come out, or to book at least our room now? Thank you in advance!

    Hi, Rachel! 

    Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend is the perfect opportunity to plan a girls' trip to Walt Disney World® Resort! It's a celebration of all things Princess that's sure to be an amazing experience for you and your friends. 

    My advice would be to go ahead and book your accommodations now to ensure you get your desired resort and room category - especially since runDisney will not be offering any discounted travel packages for this royal weekend.

    The good news is there are still opportunities to save on your race-cation! Even better, if you book now and a Special Offer should become available at a later date, you are able to modify your reservation or book a new one and cancel your original with no penalty. 

    Walt Disney World® Resort Special Offers - You could save between 25%-35% on room-only accommodations. However, this offer will not be available until late fall for dates that include Princess Weekend - this is where booking now and modifying later comes in handy! 

    • Book through an official runDisney Travel Provider - I have had success utilizing Get Travel Sports for several runDisney events - in addition to providing discounted accommodations, they offer discounted theme park tickets, too! For more information on this option, visit the event page for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Presented by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and select the REGISTRATION Tab. From there, select Travel Providers and a list of providers will appear (website will be updated with this info soon)

    I hope this helps, Rachel! Please let me know if you have any additional questions as you continue planning. I have a lot of great ideas on how you can make this girls' weekend magical.
