    Bonjour, I will participate to my first run disney race in Febuary 2014. As the race start early in the morning, at what time do you recommand to arrive? (if we went to the expo the day before, is 1 hour before enough ?). Merci!

    Hi Anie!

    Congratulations on signing up for your first runDisney race!  I just know that you will love it and become a lifelong runDisney fan:)

    You will definitely need to pick your race packet up the day before the race, as there will not be any packet pick-ups on race morning. 

    RunDisney requires everyone to be in their corrals no later than 30 minutes prior to the race start.  I like to get to the starting area at least an hour and a half early.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort, then you can take a runDisney bus to the start area.  If you are driving in, you will want to be there even earlier.  If I drive myself, I usually plan on getting there around 3:30 a.m.  I know it's very early, but the traffic gets really bad after that, and I don't like the stress of being stuck!  I just get there early, eat my breakfast, and dance along with the DJ:)

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
