Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I am planning to run the goofy races in January 2015. Can you tell me how quickly the resorts book up for that weekend? How far in advance should we book our rooms? We plan to make a family vacation out of it. Is the 2015 dates January 10 and 11?

- Hi Samantha!
The Goofy Challenge is an awesome goal! I am hoping to do it sometime myself. Maybe I will shoot for 2015, like you!
The race date for 2015 has not been finalized just yet, but I would guess that you have the correct dates. That would be the normal weekend for the marathon race weekend. Registration for your 2015 race should open in the spring of 2014. You could book your room as early as a year in advance. The rooms at the Value Resorts typically fill up first. All of the Disney Resorts are "host" resorts during marathon weekend. This means that they will all have buses for runners and spectators traveling to and from all race weekend events. You can browse the resorts to see which one best fits your family's taste and budget.
Please let me know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your exciting race!
