    Im doing the Dopey run in Jan 2014 & was wondering if it is possible to walk to the starting line from the Dolphin/Swan Hotel or any of the hotels near Epcot? If not what are other options for transportation, such as, is the water taxi available?

    Hi Sarah!

    The Dopey is pretty impressive!  I think it's going to be a fun challenge!

    You won't be able to walk to the starting line from any of the Epcot area resorts, because you would need to walk through Epcot to the front parking lot (where the starting lines are), and Epcot won't be open yet.  You would be able to walk back to those resorts after the races that end there, but only if you have a ticket to get into the park for that day.

    There will be buses running to and from every single resort that will take you to the starting area.  The buses will run to all race weekend events and are very convenient and easy to use.  That will be your best option.  The only other option would be a taxi or driving your own vehicle, and you won't want to mess with the traffic!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck with your training!!
