runDisney Early Registration for Club runDisney Members
Club runDisney members are getting access to races early this year!
If you signed up for this program in 2019, your membership guarentees access to one race per race weekend.
runDisney “Perfect” Runners
If you run the same race (half marathon or longer) for 5 years in a row STARTING WITH THE INAUGURAL RACE, you qualify for runDisney’s Perfect status.
And Perfect runners are getting early registration links this year!
Early reports from the runDisney emails suggested that perfect runners were NOT going to get early registration access.
But Wine and Dine perfects are registering as we type- so that was clearly inaccurate information.
ps- There is a chance to possibly become a Perfect runner with the new race, Springtime Surprise, starting. We will need to see how runDisney structures this race weekend and if they will offer a chance to become a Perfect runner.

As most of us know, these races sell out and can sometimes sell out fast. The races have slowed down over the years, but you can count on 5Ks and 10Ks- especially the Wine and Dine, Marathon Weekend and Princess Weekend races- to sell quickly.
If you are an Annual Passholder, you’ll want to mark these dates in your calendar.
