Exciting news today from Disney Vacation Club! They’re launching a new vacation option, Guaranteed Event Weeks, that’s perfect for those who love participating in runDisney events. Purchasers of a Guaranteed Event Week will receive an annual, automatic, week-long reservation booking for accommodations at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, for the week associated with their favorite Walt Disney World runDisney race! For example, if you purchase the Walt Disney World Marathon Guaranteed Event Week, you will have guaranteed accommodations at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins each year for that race. In addition, owners of a Guaranteed Event Week will also have the opportunity to secure up to five race entries in advance, annually, for eligible races offered during their selected runDisney event weekend.

This is an amazing new offering for runners looking to secure a guaranteed bib number in advance and Walt Disney World Resort accommodations for their favorite runDisney race year after year! Carb load using the full kitchen in your Disney Vacation Club Villa. Wash your not-so-fresh running gear using your Villa’s washer and dryer. And relax sore muscles by drawing a hot bath in your Villa’s jetted or soaking tub. Plus, you can save on decades of future Disney vacations at Disney Vacation Club Deluxe Villa accommodations.

Guaranteed Event Weeks go on sale today, with eligible events including the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side and Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.

Lace up your running shoes and visit or call 877-382-6244 for more information on Disney Vacation Club Guaranteed Event Weeks.

*Savings based on a cash purchase of Membership, plus closing costs and annual dues, compared to the cost of a non-member renting the same accommodations at rack rate over the life of Membership.

Requires purchase of a fixed week ownership interest at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge that includes a special event right associated with a runDisney event weekend. Owner also receives advance opportunity to purchase up to 5 race registrations each year, for use by themselves and their family members or guests during their stay. Choose from Marathons, Half Marathons, 10K races and Challenges. Kids runs and 5K runs are excluded. Race registrations are not redeemable for cash, cannot be resold, and are subject to all other runDisney terms & conditions. Race registrations are an incidental benefit that is subject to change or termination. All accommodations are subject to availability.


  • Same question, but a little miffed. Been DVC members since 1995 and have been running races for many years. What about me, a loyal Disney DVC member and customer? I don’t need more points and I already use them for race accommodations. Do I get a guaranteed 5 bibs too? What about guaranteed accommodations? Quit offering new members better perks without extending them to those of us who bought in early and are part of the reason DVC was successful in the first place!

  • Interesting! I’m an existing DVC owner with points in multiple contracts at multiple resorts. Any chance of this perk becoming available for those of us who already own and aren’t interested in fixed weeks?
