The team at Pirate and Mermaid Vacations knows that we have many clients eagerly awaiting news on end of 2021 and 2022 runDisney events. Today we wanted to address some misinformation that is being circulated around the runDisney community by select travel agents/agencies, disreputable social media posts, or other fraudulent sources. These sources are implying that 2021/2022 runDisney travel packages can now be booked and bibs added at a later time. While it is true that packages can be booked for arrival dates through early July 2022, there is no guarantee bibs will be available to add to these reservation.
The misinformation we wish to address is that these same sources are implying that there are “tentative dates” for these upcoming runDisney events. There is even a misleading image of a email being circulated that many are implying was sent from runDisney regarding the booking of upcoming race packages. runDisney has confirmed they have not sent out an email to travel agents regarding 2021/2022 runDisney packages that experienced travel agents have pointed out is not a Disney communication.
Per our direct discussion with runDisney and Disney Sports Sales this morning there currently are no tentative dates for future runDisney races. These teams are actively informing their Cast Members that there are misleading communications being shared and posted by select Travel Agents and communities regarding the 2021/2022 runDisney seasons. runDisney and Disney Sports Sales are actively encouraging Travel Agents to not book room packages for assumed race weekends and are asking them to wait until legitimate race dates and information is announced.
While some agencies are trying to push clients to book packages now they are assuming the dates that races will be held on, if they are held at all. These assumptions are based on runDisney’s historical race weekend schedule, no one is in possession of unreleased runDisney information. All confirmed runDisney information can be found on runDisney’s website and official blog.
While our team can book Walt Disney World travel packages for you for any check-in date through early July 2022, there is not a “tentative” race schedule and there is no guarantee as to when runDisney events will return. Please know the Pirate and Mermaid Vacations team will never mislead you with false advertising or send out poorly crafted attempts to drum up reservations as we respect and value our clients too much. As a company our agents strive to provide our clients with legitimate and confirmed travel information at all times. Thank for your continued support of team and your trust in us.
