    Does Coronado Springs offer but transportation marathon weekend?

    Hi Kristie, 

    Welcome to planDisney! I plan most of my Walt Disney World Resort vacations around participating in runDisney race weekends, and I’m excited to hear you’ll be at the 2024 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. 

    Complimentary bus transportation is available for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, Shades of Green, and Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort. Transportation is offered to and from the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo and race start and finish lines. 

    In the days leading up to the runDisney events, you should find a sign in the Lobby of your Disney Resort hotel with information about the bus transportation. Buses usually start running a few hours before the start time of the race. I always prefer to be on the first or second bus in the mornings, because I like to meet a character or two at the pre-race festivities. 

    An extra tip as you prepare for your upcoming event, Kristie. Check the forecasted weather for those early race mornings. It can be chilly before the sun rises, so you may want to pack something to help keep you warm before the race starts. We usually pack mylar blankets or purchase some inexpensive fleece blankets that we can remove before we cross the starting line. During previous race weekends, I have heard the race announcers share that runDisney collects those discarded blankets and clothing items and donates them to local charities! If you do take a mylar blanket, be sure to remove it before you cross the starting line as it may interfere with your timing chip. 

    I hope this was helpful, Kristie! Enjoy your upcoming race weekend, I know those early mornings may be tough but runDisney events are so much fun that you’ll keep coming back for more! If you have any more questions about planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation or future runDisney events, please come back and see us at planDisney!
