    My husband and I are planning on running the WDW marathon in January 2013 (and so excited). I was wondering if any park admission is included in the fees and if not, are there discounted tickets available for us? We will probably be staying off-site.

    Hi Tabitha!  Good for you guys!  I am planning to do that same race as my first ever full marathon!  The fees for the race do not include park tickets.  Admission to parks would be sold separately, and as of right now there are no "racer" discounts.  You can always look for ticket discounts through various sources.  One of my favorites is 
    One thing I do recommend is staying on property.  I cannot stress enough how convenient the bus transportation is in getting to the starting line.  I just got home from this year's marathon weekend, and the traffic on race day morning was pretty bad.  On marathon weekend, ALL of the Disney World hotels offer free bus transportation to the start line and also back to the hotel after the race.  There are Disney Resorts that will fit ANY budget.  Obviously, you may have another reason for staying off property, but I did want to pass that information along. 
    Good luck this year with your training!  Maybe I will see you there!
