    When does registration for the Princess Run in 2025 open? Also, should I purchase a run disney membership in 2024 to help get a spot for the 5 or 10k race?

    Hey there, Coleen!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for running by with your great runDisney question! As a fellow runDisney enthusiast, I'm always thrilled by the opportunity to chat about my passion with other like-minded Guests. Every Walt Disney World Resort vacation is special, but a runDisney race-cation adds pixie dust to any stay! Coleen, I'm happy to help you prepare for 2025 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend race registration.

    runDisney events are extremely popular due to their exciting on-course entertainment and the fact they allow participants to run through the theme parks in an upbeat and supportive environment. Sometimes, it seems like registering for a runDisney event is even more challenging than completing the race itself! Coleen, Club runDisney Gold or Platinum Membership provides runners guaranteed registration in each race weekend through early registration. Currently, these Memberships are sold out for the 2023-2024 season, which includes registration for 2025 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. However, I'm happy to inform you that it's still possible to register for race weekends without being a Member of Club runDisney!

    Coleen, I registered for the 2024 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend in mid-June this year, and I'd expect similar timing for next year's registration. Next spring, start checking the runDisney website frequently for any details pertaining to 2025 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend registration. (Club runDisney registration will likely open to Members one week before general registration begins.) On registration day, be sure to set aside ample time before and during the registration period. I recommend logging into your Disney account just before the registration period begins. (Navigate to "Help & Support" > "Manage Account" on the runDisney website.) Then, navigate to the race weekend's "Events" page, and when the clock strikes registration time (to the second!) hit the green button that allows you to "Register Now!" You'll be shuffled into a virtual queue and the countdown will be depicted on the screen. Don't fret if your estimated wait time is "more than an hour." Often, I've found that the wait times are less than originally predicted!

    If possible, jot down the following details in a note or document on your desktop ahead of registration: emergency contact phone number, credit card information, and billing address. That way, you can quickly input these items while moving quickly through the registration process. Eventually, you'll reach the finish line and your registration will be complete! Coleen, it's important to note that your registration is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation screen and email. Don't give up, be persistent and patient, and you'll Go the Distance!

    I hope this information helps you prepare for a magical and memorable race weekend, Coleen. If you have any additional runDisney-related questions, I'm always happy to respond to questions asked of me directly! My friends and fellow panelists, Kaitlin and Cindy also have years of runDisney experience to share as well. Wishing you miles of magic!

    You're Almost There,
