    Hey! So another question I'm hoping someone knows. I'm guessing they will be preregistering people at the WDW marathon for the DLR Half Weekend, does preregistering give you a discount? Has it in the past? Thanks for any help!

    No discount, but I did get a free backpack when I registered last year.

    Yep, the Marathon program says there will be early registration, just like last year. No discount noted.

    I would like to do this race, but I need a job to pay for runDisney events. I'm a stay home Mom.

    I registered at the runDisney booth on Saturday. What a fiasco. People cutting in line and laptops rebooting with Windows updates. But I'm in. Also got to see Jeff Galloway there.

    I saw the line wrapping all the way around and decided to just wait. The expo is always too busy and a bit overwhelming, I just needed to get out of there.

    I agree with you 100%, my brother asked me if I was going to sign up but waiting in a line that long for maybe some kind of run disney freebie was not enough incentive for me.

    If you have a Disney Visa card, you can register for the Disneyland Half before it opens to the public. I received an email about it while at WDW.

    Did anyone stay onsite with the runner discount last time? Wondering what it was so I can budget. Saving the DVC for another trip. Thanks!

    @Texas84 I can't speak for the runDisney discount but in general the Disneyland hotels are going to be more expensive (even with a discount) then the hotels that are just off property.

    Nice! That sounds so fun! I want to stay at the Disneyland Hotel so bad, that pool is awesome!

    I agree! If I am flying across the country for a race I think Grand Californian or Disneyland Hotel are a must (not sure how my travel partner feels about that though...)

    If you get any quotes on prices let us know, I am definitely keeping my eyes open for a better price than the Disneyland website is showing right now.

    Disney hasn't released resort rates yet for tour operators/agents; we expect to have them by the end of the month.
