    Hi Lori! This will be my first year running the Tinkerbell Half Marathon in California. I have run numerous races in Disney World, but none in Disneyland. Do you have any dining suggestions for the evening before the race in Disneyland?

    Hi Jamie!

    I faced this same issue in 2012 when I went to Disneyland for the first time for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon!  I had no idea what restaurants were there:)

    Luckily, there were plenty to choose from and everything was great!

    I actually posted a blog on the runDisney website with some suggestions at both Disney World and Disneyland.   Here is a link to the Disneyland Dining information on the official website.  The Downtown Disney District has a lot to offer, and you wouldn't need a theme park ticket to go there.

    Just be sure that you eat something that is normal for you.  It's never a good idea to try a new food the night before a race. 

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions and good luck at your race!
