    Hi! my kids are running the kids races on Saturday during the princess 1/2 weekend. Is the start time 8:45 for all the races? When will it be over? We plan to go to AK after so need an idea for dining reservations. Tks

    Hi, Bonnie! 

    How exciting your children will be participating in the Kids' Races during Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend! They are sure to feel like royalty when they receive their very own Finisher Medallion and are able to wear them proudly during your day at Disney's Animal Kingdom®.

    Races will begin promptly at 8:45am in Epcot® with a rolling start beginning with the 100m dash, followed immediately by the 200m, 400m and then the Diaper Dash. The One Mile race will have a separate start time and location. As soon as your children cross the finish-line you will be able to head over to Animal Kingdom®- there is no specific end time. I would love to know which distances your children are registered for, Bonnie! 

    As far as your dining, a breakfast reservation might be tight, but lunch would be completely feasible. You can book your Advanced Dining Reservations online to help get your preferred time. 

    I hope this gives you a good idea of how race morning will work for your children. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Happy running to your kiddos!
