Is Club runDisney Worth it?

If you’re a runner with the goal to run at all the runDisney races this season, then yes, a membership may be worth it. However, if you’re only planning on a few races this year, you’ll need to ask yourself if the $300- $1000 dollar membership cost is worth it for you! As you ALWAYS must register for a race to attend, know that being a Club runDisney member gives you less competition, and the chance to register for the race about 1 week ahead of general guests. 

That said, the biggest perk would be that you don’t have to have multiple screens open when the registration opens for your chosen race or fight the masses for the chance to register at 10 am EST/ 7 am PST. Especially as most races involve a Virtual Queue that open at 9:30 am on the website for which you’ll need to be ready! 

Hopefully this post has helped you get a clear picture of this membership program with runDisney to help you choose if it’s right for you! If you’re a fan, be sure to head to our shop, for loads of Disney running outfit ideas with cute shirts, sport bras and crops.
