    My family will be staying at Pop Century. I am running the Princess 1/2 Marathon. How should we plan for them to see me as spectators during and after the race?

    Hello, Angel, welcome to planDisney. Congratulations in advance for your impressive accomplishment of running the Disney Princess Half Marathon and kudos to your family for waking up early to cheer you on!

    I popped over to the runDisney website and noticed that the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend course map hasn’t been released yet which is normal as historically they are released about two weeks before race weekend. When the course maps are released, you will find areas where your family members can cheer you on. 

    In my experience, the spectator areas for the most recent half marathon races have been at the start and finish line, located in the parking lot of EPCOT. But, if your course is anything like the half marathon course I ran in 2022 during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, spectators were also lined up along Main Street U.S.A. The Digital Expo & Event Guide that will be sent to the email address you used when registering for the race will go into more detail about specific spectating areas for your family. If seeing you run down Main Street U.S.A. and past the castle is an option, since you are staying at a Disney Resort Collection hotel, your family could take advantage of the complimentary bus transportation to EPCOT, hop on the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center, and either transfer monorails or take a ferryboat to the Magic Kingdom to cheer you on!

    I hope this information helps you with your planning, you got this!
