    This will be my first year running the half marathon with my family in Jan. I'm wondering which is the best resort to stay at? I've heard that transportation only runs at certain resorts during the early morning for the runners.

    Hi D'Lorah:

    A number of runners prefer staying at a monorail Resort on marathon weekend.  Other runners prefer to stay at an Epcot-area Resort as the transportation to the starting drop-off area should be the shortest distance.  I've run the half-thon two years and transportation is extremely easy.  Runners stay at all different Disney Resorts.  All you have to do is hop on your Resort's special transportation shuttle.  One year I stayed at Saratoga Springs Resort and the other year I stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  On race morning, I headed with the other runners to the race shuttle bus. 

    Have a great race.
