Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Events Registration

I ran the Dopey Challenge this past January and the Goofy Challenge the 2 years previous.  I LOVE Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  I am planning on running the Dopey Challenge again in January.  The Dopey Challenge involves running the 5k on Thursday, 10k Friday, WDW Half Marathon Saturday and WDW Full Marathon Sunday.  I loved every minute of it…except maybe the getting up at 3am four days in a row part. 😉


Registration will open April 22, 2014 at 12 Noon EDT/9am PDT for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend events, which include:

  • Dopey Challenge
  • Goofy’s Race and Half Challenge
  • Walt Disney World Marathon
  • Walt Disney World Half Marathon
  • Walt Disney World 10K
  • Family Fun Run 5K
  • Family Reunion Breakfast
  • ChEAR Squad
  • Race Retreat
  • Pasta in the Park Party
  • runDisney Kids Races

If you are a Disney Annual Passholder or DVC you can register early starting at 12 Noon EDT April 16th.  To register early you need to log into your Annual Passholder site ( here is link to Disney World AP site and here is link to Disneyland AP site) or DVC site and follow links.  I am not DVC, but on the AP sites it is usually listed in the section “Special Events”.  Some events tend to sell out quick, so if you have your heart set on running a particular race I would recommend registering ASAP.  Don’t wait.

Who will be running and which events?

        That is the truth! I’ve been goofy the last 8 years (well, this year I was a little dopey), and I’ll be dopey again next year! 🙂
