    Hello, I am coming for the Princess Half Marathon and was wondering after I pick up my bib from ESPN how to get to Downtown Disney and from there to Disney's Boardwalk. Then from there to Pop Century or to EPCOT. Please let me know. Thank you.

    Hi, Samantha!

    It's hard to believe Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend is almost here! I hope your training has been going well and you are excited for this fairytale weekend. 

    Will you be staying at one of Walt Disney World® Resort's many fabulous resort hotels? If so, race transportation will be provided to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex from your resort. After packet pick-up, take the provided race transportation bus back to your resort and change buses by boarding one of the Disney Bus Transportation System buses to Downtown Disney (there is no direct bus to Downtown Disney from the ESPN Wide World of Sports).  

    When you are ready to head to the Boardwalk area from Downtown Disney, you will be able to again take the bus service directly to the Boardwalk Inn. From the Boardwalk, you will be able to walk directly to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot. If Pop Century is where you would like to go, you may take about a 10 minute walk to the bus station of Hollywood Studios and hop on a bus to Pop Century there, or if you do head to Epcot® you will be able to access a bus at the bus depot located at Epcot's main entrance. 

    There are a few other options such as the ability to take a Friendship Boat from the Boardwalk to Hollywood Studios or Epcot, but the above listed suggestion is the most direct route. I hope this helps give you an idea of your transportation options between your desired Walt Disney World® Resort destinations, Samantha! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have.

    Have a great race!
