    Group of 6 traveling for Princess Half. 3 running the 1/2, 1 the 5K, others in Cheer Zone. We have 2 day park hoppers for Fri/Sat, are staying at AofA, on dining plan. Best way to p/u packets but not lose time in parks? Fri dining at Epcot for 21st BD.

    Hi Kelly! 

    This sounds like a great trip!  I also have a group of girlfriends coming, and we all have our bags packed and ready to go!!

    My suggestion would be to get to the expo early on Friday morning.  People start lining up an hour or so before it opens.  (It opens at 9 a.m.)  This way you can get in line near the front and speed your way through the process.

    Be forewarned, though, that you will want to spend some time shopping at the awesome vendors!  Technically, you could be in and out of the expo in twenty or thirty minutes. 

    I hope this helps, and I hope you and your friends have a MAGICAL race!  Let me know if you have any other questions.
