runDisney Registration Updates Announced Today!

 

As promised runDisney made an announcement today, June 1, following a scheduled delay to enhance the race registration process ahead of the 2018-2019 race calendar. The great news is, we finally know which dates to hold on our own calendars, and they will continue to have an early registration date available for DVC/AP runners! Here’s what we know…

 

Based on the press release from runDisney, and as we all suspected, runners will now be registering for all races directly through their Disney accounts on waltdisneyworld.com (and eventually the other parks too, I hope!) This means no more active.com. This will allow registrants to register multiple people at once, something that was incredibly stressful for people in the past.

Another bonus is that registrants will also be able to pay using a Disney Gift Card option (YES!) This could come in handy in case heaven forbid a race gets canceled and Disney hands out consolation gift cards. Or you can rack up gift cards from birthdays, holidays, to pay for your registration!

runDisney also came up with a new graphic for runners to keep in mind for the upcoming dates:

 

According to the release, here is the following important registration information to consider:

I’m set to register for the 2019 Princess Half Marathon, so I’ve set the date! In the meantime, it sounds like I will need to update my Two Course Challenge Wine & Dine Half Marathon registration, so I will be sure to share how that process goes.

Until then, Will Run for Disney!
