    Running in our first 5k in February as a family, and want to book travel. Does Disney offer any discounts for RunDisney participants, since you have to register way out in advance for the run, but hotel discounts don't show up till months later?

    Hi Michael!

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

    Generally, Walt Disney World runDisney events do not offer hotel discounts for runners. But, you are correct that a special offer by Disney will usually span the weekend of the race.

    What I generally do is book my reservation way in advance to get the resort I want.  Then, I watch the Disney Special Offers page to see when one comes out that is for the race dates. I see if the discount will apply to my existing reservation.  If it doesn't, I usually cancel the old reservation and make a new one using the discount.

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