    Hi moms! Arriving at BLT Oct 4 , running 5k Oct 5 how soon should we book a taxi? Never booked a taxi before! 1st run disney event anything else we should know? Also with new FP system can we "book" a time for ride for day of race so we can rest

    Hi Melissa!

    I generally stop at the front desk to get help arranging a cab on the day before I need it, so you may just want to take care of that when you are checking in on October 4. 

    You are going to LOVE your first runDisney race!!  My biggest advice is to make sure you get to the starting area at least an hour early.  This way you can avoid traffic, find your way where you need to be, and get stretched and ready! I also like to take my camera so I can capture lots of magical memories during the race:)

    I don't know whether the new FASTPASS and wrist band system will be up and going by then or not.  Disney has said that it will unveil it sometime this year.  There is a good chance that it will be available by then, but I just don't have any way to know for sure!  I think it's going to be a really exciting new chapter for Disney and I can't wait to learn all about it!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your first runDisney event!
