Walt Disney World Half Marathon FAQs

The Walt Disney World Half Marathon is typically held early in January each year on a Saturday. 

It is the 3rd event in the 4 day Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. 

Dates for 2025 have been realised as January 8 – January 12, 2025.

The Walt Disney World Half Marathon is very popular and attracts runners from all around the globe. Typically, around 20,000 participants take part in the race.

While walking the Dopey Challenge is an option for those who may not wish or be able to run, we strongly advise considering the challenge’s strict pace requirement.

All participants, regardless of whether they choose to run or walk, must adhere to a minimum pace of 16 minutes per mile (approximately 9 minutes 57 seconds per kilometre) across all events in the challenge, including the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Marathon. 

Failure to maintain this pace could result in not being able to complete the challenge.

The Disney Half Marathon is exactly 13.1 miles long (approx. 21.1km), as per the regular half marathon race distance.

The Disney Half Marathon starts in the Epcot® area of Walt Disney World Resort, takes participants on a scenic route through the Magic Kingdom® Park, and then returns to Epcot® for the grand finish.

The registration fee for the Disney Half Marathon can vary based on when you sign up and any additional costs you choose. Generally, the cost ranges from approximately $180 to $350 USD (approximately $243 to $473 AUD). 

This includes your race entry, an official race shirt, a personalised bib, a finisher medal, and access to on-course and post-race refreshments.

For those looking for a more comprehensive race weekend experience, Travelling Fit offers exclusive travel packages that can include accommodations, park tickets, special event access, and more.
