    Do buses run from the Disney Springs hotels to the Walt Disney world races on race days? Currently planning to stay at the Drury Plaza at Disney Springs.

    Hi Caroline!

    Thanks for racing on over to planDisney with a fantastic question!  I love runDisney race weekends and I'm thrilled you'll be participating in the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend!

    Caroline, runDisney currently only offers its official transportation to guests staying at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, Shades of Green, or the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.  In my experience staying at some of the Disney Springs and Bonnet Creek Area hotels, I've found that it really varies from hotel to hotel, year to year, and sometimes even which race you're running.  I would recommend calling the Drury Plaza Hotel to see if they have arranged any transportation for their guests participating in Marathon Weekend 2025.  When I stayed off-site for a few runDisney weekends, I used a rideshare service which was a convenient option with well-marked drop-off and pick-up locations at the race.  Regardless of how you are planning to get to the starting line, you'll want to make sure you leave plenty of time for any traffic along the way!

    Speaking of Disney Springs, don't forget to check out your Official Digital Expo and Event Guide when it's released closer to your event.  This handy guide not only has some important information about your weekend but also lists some great discounts available to runners when you show your bib or medal at select locations around Disney Springs!  After a long weekend of running, there was nothing better than a delicious meal at Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'. . .except the fact that I also enjoyed my Thigh High Chicken Biscuits at a discount!  

    Caroline, I hope you enjoy every magical mile in January!  If you have any other vacation planning questions, please stop by to see us again here at planDisney - we're all ears!
