    My friends and I are planning to run in The princess Enchanted 10K in Feb. We are staying at my timeshare through Wyndham there at Bonnet Creek. Since we will not have access to Disney transportation, will we be able to drive/park to the staring area?

    Welcome back, Kelly! 

    In my opinion, driving and parking for the Enchanted 10K is easier than taking race transportation. If I have access to a vehicle, I generally drive to the 5K and 10k events and use race transportation for the half and full marathons. With a considerably smaller field of runners, parking for the 10K has never been a problem.
    It's kind of nice to be able to sit in my car for a few minutes to drink my coffee, eat my banana AND get a few minutes of extra sleep because I don't have to wait for the bus. 

    That said, I would still plan on arriving in plenty of time to ensure you are able to park, especially since you can sit in your car if you need to. Parking is free and is located in Epcot's parking lot, adjacent to the starting line and start zone area. 

    Another tip, don't forget to take a picture of your parking row number and lot name. Things look vastly different in the post-race daylight then in the dark when you park. The numbers are located on the ground at the end of the row. 

    Hope this helps!
