    During the Disney World Marathon weekend, what are the transportation options available to runners staying onsite? Will monorails be running and is the EPCOT back entrance open to walk through in prior to the race?

    Hi Cindy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thanks for stopping in to ask a question about transportation during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.   It's my pleasure to help you today.

    I have visited and cheered on many friends during the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend.   I am still not brave enough to take on the full marathon myself, but have done the half marathon.  I hope you and your crew have a wonderful time.   Race transportation is available to Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels.   Charter buses will run before and after the race transporting racers and spectators to and from the finish line.  The Epcot World Gateway entrance  will not be open before the race and Guests will need to use the bus transportation.  If you are staying at a Monorail hotel the Monorail lines will be open and will transport racers to and from Epcot before and after the race.

    I hope this has helped you out.  If you have any other questions about your upcoming racecation, please send them my way.  I love lending a helping hand every chance I get.
