    Hi Amanda! Having just been at Disneyland for a RunDisney race, how do you feel that this impacted crowds at the parks? We are planning a trip which would overlap the Disney Half Marathon Weekend and I am concerned about how busy it will be.

    Hey Emma,

    To be honest, I found the crowds to be extremely manageable during the Tinkerbell Half Marathon weaken, but you have to keep in mind the fact that this event is held during a time of year that normally experiences a lower than normal crowd volume.

    The Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend happens to fall during Labor Day weekend this year which is means a long weekend for schools and most businesses.  Combine the "holidayers" with the race crowds, and I would imagine the attendance could be a little more elevated than usual.

    That said, Emma, there will be several "race weekend" activities including special parties, meet ups, the Expo, and the races themselves, that will divert the running crowds to various areas of the resort!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
