    We are looking into going to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2016 for the 1st time. Will there be transportation from each Disney resort? We're looking at the kids races/5K/10K...how much time should we allow for getting to each race? TIA!

    Hi, Shauna! 

    Welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney! I'm excited to hear you are looking to participate in some of the awesome races available during the 2016 Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna®. This event is runDisney's premier race weekend and will not disappoint. 

    Race transportation is available from all Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels for each race activity during this weekend of running. So you can relax and let Disney do the driving regardless of where you choose to call home on property. 

    For the Walt Disney World® 5K, plan on boarding the race transportation bus between 4:15am - 4:30am, this will ensure you are in your corral in time to start the race. 

    For the Walt Disney World® 10K, you'll need to be on the bus by 3:45am to make it to your corral. I can't stress enough how important it is to arrive early. With lane closures, bag check and 10,000 runners you will need that much time to get where you need to go, even though it seems early!

    For the Kids' Races, you will utilize Expo Transportation from your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to access the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for cutest races out there! I would be at the designated pickup location at 9:30am for the 11:00am Kids' Races start times.  

    You can also find other great tips on race transportation on the PLAN tab on the homepage for the Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend on the runDisney website. Of course, don't forget to send me any additional questions you may have. I am here to help you plan a magical race-cation.
