    Hi - I am looking at doing a Disneyrun in 2017, I am from Australia and making it a family holiday as well. So I was wondering how many days before the race I should get there and would it be best to do the holiday thing before or after the race?

    Hi Kate!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love that you're making this a family holiday!  Race vacations are my favorite.

    Personally, I would choose (if your schedule allows) to do your holiday after the race.  I actually wrote two blog posts on this very topic.  One post covers vacationing before the race and the other talks about vacationing after your race.

    As you can see from the posts, they will both work!  It just depends on which you would prefer.  If you choose to vacation after your race, I would plan to arrive at least two days prior to get settled in and adjust to any time change.  

    I hope these suggestions help!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
