    Hi Lindsey, What time do people typically arrive (on the 1st day) of Expo? I want to avoid rush of crowd. Any tips on seeing it all? Do they hand out a program guide there?

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. There is so much to see at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo, but if you don't have you heart set on a particular item, I think it's a great plan to wait a bit for the crowd to die down!

    You'll find the first morning that some folks with actually line up an hour or so before the doors open because they want a particular item that will have limited availability, like the coveted runDisney Christmas ornament. Otherwise I would recommend going about an hour and a half to two hours after it opens to allow the rush to die down a bit. There is a guide handed out when participants collect their race shirts, but since I know from your past question that you are a local and not registered this won't apply to you. I would recommend approaching the shirt pickup area and asking one of the volunteers if they have extra booklets. While it isn't a guarantee, my guess would be that they'll have one for you to at least look at and see if there are any booths you definitely want to hit! You can also check out the Digital Event Guide and click to view the Exhibitor List & Map for Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend!

    I hope you have a great time shopping 'til you drop at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
