    My daughter and I will be arriving on May 6, 2016 to take part in the Disneyland TinkerBell 10k race. I'm trying to time our flight so she misses as little school as possible. How late does the race check-in stay open till the night before the race?

    Hi, Vicki! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I also want to thank you for your question, as a mom of three, I understand completely the need to sort out travel logistics when wanting to participate in a runDisney event as a family. 

    You can anticipate the hours for packet pickup at the runDisney Health and Fitness Expo for Friday, May 6th, to be 10:00am-8:00pm - I would make sure to choose flights that will allow you to arrive at the Expo, held at the Disneyland Resort Hotel, by 7:00pm. This will give you the time you'll need to obtain your bibs downstairs and then head up to the main Expo floor for your gEAR bags and race shirts. 

    I hope this helps, Vicki! Please let me know if you should have any further pixie-dusted questions as you continue planning and preparing to fly to Neverland :) And don't forget to mark your calendar for registration to open to the public on Tuesday, August 11th. 

    You can run! You can run! You can run!
