    coming in January 2022. I know theres speculation of a rundisney race that weekend. how crowded is it during race weekends? Is it high like the summer break, spring break, and major holidays? Is the race during park hours?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Meaghan!

    Thank you for visiting us with an excellent question! I am happy to hear that you will start 2022 with a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    After a year of virtual races, runDisney fans could not be more excited about the return of the Walt Disney Marathon Weekend January 5-9, 2020. Although this event attracts a significant amount of visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort, I had the chance to run the half-marathon before and I did not notice a major increase in crowds. It will be a busy week, but other times of the year, like Christmas, are busier. 

    Races begin before park opening time, but for longer races like the half-marathon and the marathon, there is a chance you might see a few racers making their way through the parks in the morning. Traffic around the Walt Disney World Resort may be impacted during the half-marathon and the marathon, so plan to leave your Disney Resort hotel earlier if you are using bus transportation.

    I hope this information is helpful, Meaghan! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
