runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend
Finally, runDisney did share that last year’s virtual event would be the last Star Wars race. So what will be replacing it? Well, runDisney has shared that they will be offering the Springtime Surprise Weekend. Information is very vague about what this race weekend will offer, as Disney hasn’t shared any real details about this one yet.
Guests will have the option to run these races in person, but there will still be a virtual option, if you would prefer that method.
Do keep in mind that these events are going to be EXTREMELY popular. They will be very difficult to get into this year.
More details about the race weekends can be found here. We’ll also share details here as we learn them.
