It used to be that you could wait a while to register for a runDisney event, even a month or so after the registration opened. Now, with the ever-growing popularity of all runDisney events, if you aren't ready to go as soon as registration opens you might miss out.

Registration opens at 12 p.m. ET on June 16 for the 2016 Star Wars Half Marathon weekend at Disneyland. The event is January 14-17, 2016 and includes the half marathon, the Star Wars 10K, the Star Wars 5K, Kids Races, and the Rebel Challenge which combines the 10K and the half marathon.

Up next is the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World presented by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals on February 18-21, 2016. If there's one weekend full of races that might sell out in a matter of hours it's the Princess Half Marathon weekend. This weekend of races has grown in popularity over the past few years.

Registration opens July 14 at noon ET for these races including the Princess Half Marathon, the Princess 5K, the Disney Princess Enchanted 10K, and the Glass Slipper Challenge which includes the 10K and the half marathon.

YES! I am already registered for the Dopey (3rd one for me), and as it is my last year in the military (after 36 yrs), I am celebrating....or hoping to if I get in, by also running the Princess, the Tinkerbell, and then the Dumbo Double Dare, all in 2016!!! I am so excited! Also so afraid that I won't get in.....which would be so very disappointing!!! Go Run Disney!!!

I'm waiting for the Inuagural Disney Paris Half. Just wondering how this registration will work when you want to travel with Friends. What if you get in, but none of your friends do?? This would not be an ideal situation. They really need to think this through!
I can't figure out why Disney does their registrations on a Tuesday right in the middle of the day?? Do they think this weeds applicants out because of those that work and can't get on a computer?? It's getting very frustrating. If you aren't on the website exactly when it opens, you won't get in.
