    How to go from Port Orleans Riverside to MK on time for early entry on Princess Half Marathon Feb 26? Is Disney bus best? What time should we leave? Or can we do Lyft around the road closures to Fort Wilderness then boat? Or is another park a better choice

    Hi Patricia! Welcome to planDisney.

    This week will see the arrival of many "sole" sisters with tutus, tiaras, and running shoes for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Races start on Friday morning and continue through Sunday, February 26, 2023, for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. The course on Sunday will take these fairytale runners through the EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park area starting at 5:00 AM in waves. You should expect right at Magic Kingdom Park opening hours for many runners to still be passing through the park.

    Personally, I would choose to start my morning at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to avoid road closures and runners. However, if your heart is set on Magic Kingdom Park, here is my best advice. My first choice of transportation would an early ride with the Walt Disney World® Bus Service. The drivers know the bypass routes and up-to-date re-opening of roads as they are considered clear. If rideshare is your preferred mode of transportation, I would splurge on Minnie Van™ Service through the Lyft app. Again, these drivers are Cast Members and will know the more efficient routes. I referred to the road closure map and World Drive close to Fort Wilderness Lodge will be affected. So, if you choose that option, plan your route accordingly. Regardless, please allow additional time to get to any of your destinations this upcoming weekend.
