Early Registration Begins on July 17th for Walt Disney World’s 2019 Marathon Weekend

Races at Walt Disney World are extremely popular events, with the majority of the events selling out quickly once the registration opens.  If you are lucky enough to be a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, Disney Vacation Club Member or a Golden Oak resident, then you receive an early registration booking window ahead of the official registration opening.  For the 2019 Marathon Weekend, this special registration window will begin on Tuesday, July 17th at Noon EST.  These guests will have 2 days to book in advance for a limited number of early registration spots.  The general registration for the event will open to everyone else on Thursday, July 19th at Noon EST.


More details on the event and the race events offered during the 2019 Marathon Weekend can be found at  The big marathon weekend is held in January each year.  If January doesn’t work for your travel plans, then you can also check out the other race events that take place throughout the year.  Among the events are the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, Star Wars Rival Run Weekend and the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  You can also check out the virtual race options for guests that don’t have trips to Walt Disney World planned, but want to participate in the race fun.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
