    If you are a Florida resident or are staying off site, can you still get the the race? Also, can you pick up your packet the day of the race or it has to be picked up prior?

    Hi Anne!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love helping Guests that will be attending their first runDisney event because you truly don't know just how much fun is in store for you!

    For Guests staying at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel all weekend transportation is provided, including the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo and all race events. For Guests that are local or staying off property you are responsible for getting yourself to the start line the morning of. As the race weekend approaches runDisney will publish the Digital Event Guide which will provide you driving directions for those that will be driving themselves. I highly recommend following these directions because other GPS directions will not consider road closures for the race. For an example, please check out the driving directions for the 2018 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    When you register for a runDisney event on Active.com they will have you agree to a Packet Pickup Policy which states that you must visit the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo to pickup your bib and that it will not be available on race morning. With that being said, I have often seen exceptions where they do have pickup the morning of, but this is not their policy and should not be expected. If you plan on waiting until the morning of please understand that it may not be available. If you are willing to gamble, I would recommend being on property no later 4 AM and you will need your waiver already printed out, signed and your legal identification. This will help to streamline the process, if available, and get you to your corral as soon as possible so the fun can begin!

    I really recommend attending the Expo, not only to guarantee your bib but to check out all the fun stuff!
