As runDisney does not refund or defer guaranteed entries, our policy is as follows: If we can resell your package, the following fees will apply:
- 15% of your payment amounts if cancelling 120 days or more prior to registration closing.
- 25% of your payment amounts if cancelling between 7 and 119 days prior to registration closing.
- 50% of your payment amounts if cancelling 6 days or less prior to registration closing.
- 100% of your deposit and payment amounts if cancelling after registration closes or at any time if we’re unable to resell your package.
The difference between what you paid, and the fee listed above will be held as a credit for you for 24 months from the time you made your last payment for this particular package. Credits may only be used for events listed on our website.
Each year we have many people cancel due to unforeseen circumstances who did not purchase our travel insurance meaning they end up losing a portion or all of their package amount. Under no circumstances does the runDisney permit postponing your race if you need to cancel, so protect yourself and your money by purchasing travel insurance through ManuLife.
With our insurance you will be able to cancel for insurable reasons as well as running injuries while training and we also sell a Cancel For Any Reason policy (insurance must be purchased within 48 hours of your initial payment or deposit). We offer various other insurance packages including Cancellation, Interruption, Medical and Baggage. For full details on coverage, please click here: Manulife Financial.
As all runners must collect their own bib(s) at the race expo, you must arrive early enough the day prior to your first race to get to the race expo on time.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights are included in your package, but you can add additional nights with us. The sooner you book, the better as hotels will sell out and prices will increase.
In our opinion, it is best to visit the parks after your races to not wear yourself out prior.
Are these prices in CAD or USD?
All prices for this event are listed in USD as everything takes place in the States.
If you are sold out of Goofy or Dopey Challenges, may I purchase the entries separately?
If you want to participate in the Goofy Challenge or the Dopey Challenge, you must purchase the Goofy or Dopey Challenge bib. You may not purchase them separately as each bib is specifically labelled for the event.
Can I stay at another property?
You may request to stay at a different property, but please note we only have group discounts at the hotels listed above.
Can I book additional nights at the same hotel?
Yes, assuming the hotel isn’t sold out, we can add additional nights to your stay. Prices are listed above in the Pricing section.
What kind of weather can I expect on race day?
Typical weather in Disney World in January has an average low of 11 degrees Celsius and an average high of 22 with 5 days of rain during the month.
Can you help me find a same-sex roommate?
We can definitely try and find you a same-sex roommate, but we can’t guarantee it. Let us know as early as possible for the best chances. Please note that if you request a roommate, you can’t bring one with you.
Do you have triple or quadruple rates?
Let us know your needs and we’ll get you a rate.
