rundisney updates!

updates

I don’t know about y’all, but I was on total pins & needles waiting for runDisney to put out registration days for WDW Marathon Weekend 2019 – and I am not even going! Well, the new dates have been announced… along with some major news!

I don’t know how it has been since the very beginning, but at least since 2013 when I started running runDisney, participants have had to use Active.com to register for events. That’s changing now! Participants will need to be logged into My Disney Experience, creating (as runDisney puts it) “a more seamless Disney experience.” As of right now, any events open for registration still go through Active.com so I couldn’t try to register but as more details come out we will update you!

There are some great implications with this news. For one thing, runDisney explicitly states that participants will be able to register multiple participants at once! YES! No more logging into your Active account, registering yourself, logging out, then logging into your spouse’s Active account, registering him, and…. yeah. No. Now, one person can register multiples! And just as awesome: participants will now be able to pay for events using Disney gift cards! Y’all know how much I love my Disney gift cards!

Now… on to the new registration dates!

2018 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend (Nov 1-4, 2018)

This is pretty much all sold out, but you can still register the wee ones for Kids Races. However, if you have already signed up for any Wine & Dine weekend events be sure to keep an eye out for an email from runDisney on how to link your registration to your Disney account and runDisney profile.
