    My husband and I will be doing the Disney princess half. Our 3 kids will be with us, ages15,13,13. We're staying at the beach club. Is it ok for them to walk through International Gateway and meet us at the finish? Any other spectating options for th

    Hi Renee!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My husband and I have run the Princess Half a couple of times together and it's always a great weekend:)

    Your children can definitely enter Epcot through the International Gateway, once the park opens (provided they have valid park tickets for the day) and walk to the front to find the finish line in the parking lot.  There will be a few places they have to yield to runners to get there, but runDisney staff will have that very clearly marked and under control.

    Another great place to view runners is inside Magic Kingdom.  The course enters there around mile 5.3 (so it will be very early in the morning), but it's pretty magical to see runners coming up Main Street, U.S.A. They don't need park tickets to enter the Magic Kingdom, but getting there would be a bit complicated. They would need to ride the runDisney buses from the resort to the starting area and then take the monorails from Epcot to Magic Kingdom.  They would take the first monorail from Epcot to the Transportation and Ticket Center and then hop on the monorail to the Magic Kingdom.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have other questions about your upcoming race weekend.
