    A friend and i are running in the RunDisney Princess Half on the 23rd. Do our husbands need to purchase a ticket to Epcot to see our last miles and cross the finish line. Is there a special on park tickets for the weekend for family and friends ?

    Hi there, Kari! 

    You must be getting excited for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. It's hard to believe this royal weekend kicks-off next week. 

    If you are wanting your husbands to see you running near the finish-line, they will not need a theme park ticket. The finish-line is actually located in the Epcot parking lot. There are not any spectator viewing locations within Epcot itself, so the finish-line area is the best option.

    My Disney Princess Half Marathon Tip:  Sign up for Runner Tracking! Your husbands will be able to track you from their mobile devices. This option will make it easier for them to know when you are nearing the finish-line. This is a free service and will be available on the runDisney website any day now. You can register for this option by selecting the Spectators tab and then selecting Runner Tracking. Just follow the steps to register and then your husbands can follow you. Also, register to track yourself and your friend. If you get separated, you will at least have an idea of how far apart you are, and it's fun to see your own splits too. 

    With regard to discounted theme park tickets for family and friends, unfortunately, this is not an available option for this particular race event. I hope this information has been helpful, Kari. Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have as you plan and prepare for this event fit for a princess. 

    Enjoy the ball!
