    Hello!! Where is the best place for my husband to take our boys, 6 & 4, to see mom along the route of the Wine & Dine as it is my 1st half marathon? Too late for kids to go to party afterwards & we are staying at SSR that night. Any ideas are

    Hi Crystal!

    Congratulations on signing up for your first half marathon!  I totally understand you wanting your boys to be a part of it.  I was so glad that mine were there when I finished my first!

    The Wine and Dine is not the best course for spectating, but there are a couple of options.  One place would be for them to be in the Animal Kingdom area.  There will be some spectators there watching and cheering for the runners.  They would have to have a cab drop them there and pick them up if you don't have your own vehicle.  That could be arranged at your resort desk.

    Another great place is for them to be is in front of the Beach and Yacht Club Resorts.  This would be later on in the race (around mile 11), but it would give them plenty to do as they wait for you.

    There will be pockets of spectators along the course as it runs on Osceola Parkway.  They could fall in with some fans there, but it may be hard to get there and back without a vehicle to use.

    They could also be at the finish line to see you get that medal around your neck!  The race will end in the Epcot parking lot, so they could always be there for the finish and then head back to your resort.

    I hope this helps you out!  You can find the course map on the Wine and Dine Half Marathon website.  Please let me know if you have any other questions!
