Selecting the Perfect "Castle" at Walt Disney World® Resort Part II

In my last post I discussed some of my favorite resort hotels for making you feel like royalty during Walt Disney World® runDisney race events, but regardless of whether your favorite made my list, there are always opportunities to save on that perfect “castle”.

Here are my top tips on finding a great deal!

Travel packages available through runDisney:

Many race events offer specially-priced hotel rates at select host hotels in addition to discounted theme park tickets. To see if a race event is included in a special offer through runDisney, visit the Travel Tab on the runDisney website and select your desired event. This is where you’ll find rates, resort locations and information on discounted theme park tickets.

What is a host hotel anyway, Faith?
Host hotels are designated resorts equipped to provide you transportation to all race event activities, from packet pickup at Disney’s Health & Fitness Expo to the Start Zone of any race. 

Special offers available through Walt Disney World®:

To access this wishing well of potential savings, visit the Special Offers Tab on the official Walt Disney World® Resort website to view current offers. However, this approach may not be for the faint of heart as you must be willing to wait until any special offers are announced that include your race dates. If you’re patient, you could save a considerable amount of money and even upgrade your accommodations.

Running as a Royal Court:

If your runDisney race plans have you in need of 10 or more rooms, check into available group rates for a magical race-cation experience you won’t soon forget. There are often discounts available during most race weekends; you’ve just got to sort through your options and wait for true-love’s discount.
