    Is a bag check still offered during RunDisney races?

    Hi Audrey!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I see you have your running shoes laced up and are ready to race into Walt Disney World Resort for runDisney's Springtime Surprise Weekend!  Let's channel our inner Lightning McQueen and get ready to go - faster than fast and quicker than quick!  

    Audrey, you'll be happy to know that gEAR Bag Check is still available for runDisney races including the 5K, 10K, and 10-Miler this weekend.  When you pick up your bib number at the expo, you'll receive a clear plastic bag that you can use for gEAR Bag Check.  This is the only bag you can use to check your items.  I usually like to carry a running belt with me for my essentials including my ID, credit card, and cell phone so I don't have to leave any valuables in my bag at gEAR Bag Check.  When I'm packing my gEAR bag, I usually like to throw in a hairbrush and a pair of flip-flops for after the race!

    If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, the Digital Expo & Event Guide is now available for runners.  This handy guide provides important details for the race weekend and also has information on some great discounts around Disney Springs that you can access by showing your race bib or medal.  One of my favorite places to grab a sweet treat, Salt & Straw, is on the list for this weekend!  I love their unique flavors - especially the Honey Lavender and Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper ice cream.  As I like to say, I run Disney so I can eat Disney!  

    Want to make a splash this weekend?  It appears the runDisney Springtime Surprise Splash currently still has availability!  Runners can grab tickets for this special event which includes after-hours access to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park as well as character greetings, entertainment, snacks, and much more!  

    Audrey, I hope you enjoy a fabulous race weekend!  Please stop by to see us again here at planDisney if you have any other vacation planning questions in the future!
