    Hi Faith, We are DVC mbrs staying at the BC Villas for the Marathon weekend in January. Can we walk to the starting corrals instead of taking the bus? What's a good time to arrive at start? More questions, but not enough room. Thanks

    Welcome back, Donatella! 

    I'm glad to hear you're planning is off to a great start! I hope you were able to secure registrations for the Disney Family Fun Run 5K and for the Walt Disney World® 10k. I know you were hoping to do both. 

    You've made an excellent decision choosing Disney's Beach Club Resort as your home for this race weekend. It's my favorite Resort Hotel! This resort offers access to a wonderful array of dining, great amenities and the option of being within walking distance of two theme parks. 

    However, when traveling to the Start Zone Area and starting corrals, you will be required to take an Event Transportation bus or personal vehicle, as the area between these two locations is not accessible by foot. The good news is, Disney's Beach Club Resort is in a great location to get you to the Start Zone quickly.

    My biggest piece of race-morning advice is to arrive at the Start Zone early! I suggest trying to board the bus for the 5K by 4:15am and the bus for the 10k by 3:30am - just to ensure you don't experience any race anxiety if you get caught in race traffic. 

    Hope this helps! And I can't wait to answer your additional questions.

    Have a great day,
