With so many available options for booking your next runDisney race, you may be wondering why you should book one option over another. Travel by Groups is here to assist with all your race-cation planning so you can focus on your training…and of course, your race costume! We are a one-stop complimentary concierge-style service, here to help you every step of the way. Our discounted runDisney packages come with the benefits listed below and because we love our guests and appreciate your patronage so much, we even throw in a goody-bag filled with special gifts and discounts.
- WE RUN THE RACES!
You’ve heard the old adage, Do What You Love and It Won’t Feel Like Work!
We at Travel by Groups love the runDisney experience; we run runDisney, we wear runDisney, our vehicles wear runDisney, if it’s a lifestyle…then we LIVE runDisney. We started running the races in 2013 and our first race was the now retired, Tower of Terror 10 Miler, (let’s pause for a moment to reflect on the great nighttime villains race of the past…)
Our agents understand the struggles of training, the pain of pushing that extra mile and the victory of accomplishing something you never thought possible. We know what it’s like to be “chased” by the dreaded Balloon Ladies, (Hey! did you see the Balloon Guy at the #TinkHalf?) and the sheer agony of having to “hold it” until you get in the parks as you run by rows and rows of porta-johns.
We want the best race weekend experience for ourselves as well as to share that with our guests . Our agents work diligently to create the best race-cation possible for our runDisney guests.
- TbG AGENTS ON SITE!
Number 1 & 2 go hand in hand. Travel by Groups runs the races, so we will always be on site to assist you if you happen to hit that rare glitch with your runDisney race-cation. We are simply a phone call, text or an email away from helping solve the rare issue that may occur during your visit to Walt Disney World® Resort. We understand that it can feel a little daunting; from travel options, transportation from the airport, around the parks and even the bib pick-up process at the expo.
We’re here to help!
- DISNEY EXPERTS
Travel by Groups proudly boasts that between our agents, we have over 100 visits logged to the Walt Disney World® Resort, and that includes dozens of stays throughout the resort hotels. Our agents have traveled to the parks with our children from infants to adulthood and have probably “seen it all!” We’re willing to tackle anything possible and have a great network of resources to assist us if something new comes along. We stay abreast of policies and changes and value ourselves as the go-to Disney Experts in our families, peer groups and industry.

- TbG EXPO SHOPPING SERVICE!
As avid and experienced runDisney participants, we know what it’s like to arrive at the expo the day before your big race, only to discover that the special t-shirt or commemorative item you wanted is SOLD OUT! We have your solution for that! Travel by Groups offers a complimentary expo shoppping service of select items (no upcharge) for runDisney guests that purchase their bibs through us. The service is free and exclusive to TbG guests. Remember, runDisney policy requires each participant to pick up their own bib in person, so check the expo hours and plan accordingly.
Be sure to CONTACT Travel by Groups for rules and restrictions for this complimentary service.
- runMate Match™ SOLO RUNNER ROOMMATE MATCH SERVICE
This exclusive service for TbG’s runDisney guests is not limited to solo runners. Couples and small groups that book with Travel by Groups can enjoy this benefit as well.
We are dedicated to providing all of our guests with a customized race-cation experience, from the casual runDisney participant to the elite corral “A” athlete.
Our runMate Match™ program is an additional benefit to our runner guests, a concierge service designed to analyze the needs of TbG runDisney participants and match them with fellow runners seeking to share the costs of their Disney resort room package.
