    The hubs and I want to do the half marathon in Disneyland but don't know what to do with our soon-to-be-3-year-old while we run. Do any of the hotels offer childcare during those god-awful wee hours of the morning?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole! 

    Congratulations on your decision to participate in the Disneyland® Half Marathon! This is my favorite runDisney event. I especially enjoy the three hour time difference coming from the east coast- it's like a normal morning run to my body. Not to mention, if you stay at a Disneyland® Resort Hotel, you are just steps away from the starting line. 

    With regard to childcare for your little one, Disney endorses an in-room childcare service called Kid's Nite Out. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and service both Walt Disney World® and Disneyland®! They offer highly qualified caregivers ready to assist you so you may enjoy the race. For more information and to book services visit

    I hope this information is helpful, Nicole! Please do not hesitate to ask me any additional questions you have regarding the Disneyland® Half Marathon Weekend or any runDisney event.

    Enjoy the Happiest Race on Earth!
