    Hi Faith! I am participating in the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare and am staying at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel. Can you tell me if there will be official event transportation from that hotel to the start and finish lines of the runDisney race? Thanks!

    Welcome back, Shannon! 

    So happy to hEAR from you again! I also hope you are getting excited for the 10th anniversary of the Disneyland® Half Marathon Weekend, I know I am :) And with it being the 60th anniversary celebration of the Disneyland® Resort, you've picked a magical time to be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth. 

    I've had the opportunity to stay at the Anaheim Hilton during this happy race weekend myself, so I can say you've picked at great Good Neighbor Hotel; it's location makes it a great choice for still being near the magic. The Anaheim Resort Transportation System, or ART, will be providing event shuttles on race morning. However, my personal experience was that it was quicker to walk to the start zone and starting line than to take the shuttle system. At approximately .90 tenths of a mile to the start zone and starting line, it's a great way to warm-up pre-race and a great way to "walk it out" after the race. By walking, you'll also know exactly when to leave your room for the race. 

    Another great feature of the Anaheim Hilton I enjoyed was the option to stop in the lobby Starbucks for your morning coffee on the way to the race, as they open early for runners on race morning. I also enjoyed speaking with the all the other runners headed over on foot. 

    I hope this helps in your race-morning planning, Shannon! As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with an further questions you may have. 

    I hope you're ready to Soar!
