    I’m registered for the 2019 Princess Half marathon! I’m wondering 1) is there any hotel where I can walk to the start line? 2) if I can’t walk, how do I get from my hotel to the start? 3) how/where can my family come see me run?

    Hello Mary Catherine!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so happy to hear you are planning a "run"derful Watl Disney World vacation this February.   I hope your trip and Princess Half Marathon race are practically perfect in every way.

    I have ran in the Princess Half Marathon Weekend for the past 4 years.  I love the course and the spirit and mood are simply wonderful.  I hope you have a great time.   While there is no Resort hotel where you can walk to the starting line from, every Walt Disney World Resort hotel does provide complimentary race transportation.  Charter buses will be running early in the morning to take you to the race start.  The bus schedule will be posted in the lobby of your hotel and in the race guide you will be given.  Your family will need to use Disney transportation to get to a spot where they can see you.  The easiest way for them to find a spot would be to ride the bus with you to the start and then walk to the Epcot monorail line from where you get dropped off.   They can take the Epcot monorail over to Magic Kingdom and find a spot to watch you run right down the middle of Main Street U.S.A.   After watching you at Magic Kingdom they can get back on the monorail and head back to Epcot and to the race finish, where they can see you cross the finish line.  

    I hope this has helped answer your question.  Please pop in again anytime you need additional help.  All the Disney Parks Moms Panelists love to lend a helping hand every chance we get.
