    My daughter and I are registered for wine & dine challenge 2023. We are staying at Dolphin Resort and want to know the best way to get to ESPN to pick up packets. Also will there be buses on both race days from the Dolphin to start of race? Thanks!

    Hey there, Theres!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your runDisney race-cation planning question. I'm so excited to hear that you and your daughter will be participating in Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend! It's one of my favorite runDisney race weekends and one that's near and dear to my heart because I found out I'd been selected as a 2023 planDisney panelist during last year's event. Theres, I'm honored that you've brought me your runDisney planning question and I'm happy to help you prepare for an unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort race weekend!

    You made a great choice by deciding to stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. I'm pleased to inform you that, not only is this hotel a fantastic spot for spectators to view the races, but it also provides Guests with complimentary runDisney race transportation to and from the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo and all race weekend events! In fact, my family enjoyed a round of putt-putt at Fantasia Gardens & Fairways Miniature Golf during this year's Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and caught the shuttle to the Expo at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve afterward. Since specific transportation details for the 2023 Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend haven't been announced quite yet, I recommend keeping an eye on the Runner Info page in the coming months. Also, when you check in at the Walt Disney World Dolphin, be sure to ask where the runDisney shuttles will pick up and drop off Guests.

    Theres, I'm wishing you the very best of luck with the Disney Two Course Challenge! (Can I just tell you how jealous I am that you're going to earn a Figment-themed challenge medal!?) If you have any additional runDisney-related questions, please feel free to reach back out to me directly anytime. I'm always thrilled to help out a fellow runDisney enthusiast and want to ensure you enjoy many magical miles during your race-cation!

    Warm wishes,
