How much does it cost to “Run Disney” for a year?

Early this morning we had a HUGE thunderstorm roll through — around 5am for about an hour or so. The thunder boomed so loud it woke DH and I up.

Then I laid there and couldn’t fall back asleep. It got me thinking…how much would it cost to Run every Disney Race for a full year?

 

So that’s what I’m going to figure out today!

I’m going to calculate based on 2014 with the caveat that some of these are still 2013 prices since they haven’t been updated yet! I will also assume you are booking the day the events are released and will get the cheapest price listed.

I’ll exclude transport, but include resort stays at a value resort price and park tickets for each day that there is a race. Oh! And, including adult races only (no kids races).

 

January:

Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend: (Total – $1143)

Dopey Challenge (includes 5k, 10k, 1/2, and full marathon) $495

Value Resort Stay (Wed-Sun): $340

Park Tickets (5 days): $308

 

Disneyland Tinkerbell Weekend: (Total – $1263)

Tinker bell 1/2 Marathon: $175

Tinker bell 10K: $95

Resort Stay @ Paradise Pier (Fri – Sun): $783

Tickets (3 days): $210

 

February:

Disney Princess Half Marathon: (total- $804)

Glass Slipper Challenge: $270

Value Resort Stay (Fri – Sun): $255

Park Tickets (3 Days): $279

 

May:

Expedition Everest Challenge: (Total- $391)

Individual Registration: $110

Value Resort Stay (1 night): $85

Park Ticket (2 Days): $196

 

August/September:

Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend: (Total – $1039)

Dumbo Double Dare (10k and Half) : $280

Paradise Pier Resort Stay (2 nights): $554

Park Tickets (3 days): $205

 

October:

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-miler: (Total – $ 416)

10-miler Registration: $135

Value Resort Stay (1 night): $85

Park Tickets (2 days): $196

 

November:

Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend:(Total – $456)

Registration: $175

Value Resort Stay (1 night): $85

Park Tickets (2 days): $196

 

Race Totals:

WDW Marathon Weekend: $1143

Tinker Bell Half Weekend $1263

Princess Half Weekend $804

Everest Challenge Weekend $391

Disneyland Half Weekend $1039

Tower of Terror Weekend $416

Wine and Dine Half Weekend $456

Total to Run Disney for a year: $5512

 

Seem like a lot? These are in and out, no extra days costs so you’re probably looking to at least DOUBLE that cost if you want to stay longer, or take someone else along. And, don’t forget you gotta pay for transportation and food!

 

Looks like I won’t be running full disney for a year anytime soon!

  1. Thanks! Keep in mind you could do hotels that are “good neighbor” in Anaheim for cheaper than Paradise Pier (which is expensive!). That would bring the cost down a little for Disneyland Half and Tinker Bell weekends! I’m itching to do Wine and Dine and Expedition Everest — maybe next year!!
