    I live in London and I'm running the full marathon on the 13th. I won't be there until the 11th. Do I just turn up to collect my pack? Or is there anything I need to do?

    Hi Luisa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Oh boy, am I excited for you to experience Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend! Exactly two years ago today, I ran the Walt Disney World Marathon as my first marathon and it was the BEST experience! From huddling together with other runners to keep warm before the race, to running through Cinderella Castle, to Characters, Cast Members, and spectators cheering all of the runners on, it was the most magical race I've ever participated in. I get teary-eyed just thinking about how special it was!

    To pick up your race bib, you will need to head to the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, complimentary transportation is available to the Expo. You have to pick up your own race bib and will need to bring a valid photo ID, as well as your personalized signed waiver. Showing up prepared with the necessary documents will save you a ton of time, so make sure you have everything you need before you arrive! The runDisney Health & Fitness Expo will be open the day you arrive (January 11, 2019) from 9:30 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. and the next day (January 12, 2019) from 9:30 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.

    Enjoy every "run-derful" moment of your "race-cation," Luisa! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
