    When will registration to join club runDisney open next? As a DVC member are we able to register for race events earlier than general race registration? Looking at the Jan 2023 race weekend.

    Hey there, Keira! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your question. I love chatting with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member!

    A runDisney event is at the tippy top of my Disney to-do list! While I have yet to do one of these magical races, I love running and LOVE running in Walt Disney World Resort! I always find myself checking the runDisney event dates and looking into when and how to join Club runDisney. Club runDisney is available in three year-long membership levels and offers awesome benefits and perks, such as an oh-so-cool Membership Welcome Package with a member jacket, magnet and membership card, year-round Tier One pricing for available runDisney races, and the most amazing benefit, in my opinion - guaranteed registration for select races and membership levels. How cool is that?! Let's chat about getting you signed up for Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend!

    Unfortunately, early registration for runDisney events is no longer offered as a DVC Membership perk. However, while DVC discounts are always subject to change, currently, DVC Members still get discounts on the runDisney merchandise! If you are interested in securing your spot for races early, Club runDisney will be the way to go. Each Club runDisney level has a certain number of available memberships per year, and registration is currently closed for this year. I would suggest keeping a close eye on the runDisney website to see when registration will open again. The website currently states to check back next year for new membership opportunities, however, since the current memberships are valid through September 30, 2022, I would start checking the website around that time. Happy training, Keira!

    My pal, fellow planDisney panelist and runDisney expert, Cindy, also informed me that Club runDisney members, besides getting the coveted early registration for races, also get early entry into the Expos, as well as private tent areas before and after the races. How amazing is that?! 

    Keira, I will be wishing upon a star that you will soon get to become a member of another magical Disney club! I hope this was helpful, and I hope you stop by again with some more fun vacation planning or DVC questions!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
