    Hi Lori! I just purchased my airfare for WDW Marathon Weekend. Our plane lands at 2:05 on Thursday and I have to get to packet pick up at WWS before 7 to get my packet for the 10K. Will I have enough time to take DME or should I take a cab from the airport

    Hi Kim!

    Well, this is a great question but tough for me to answer! 

    Technically, you should have enough time to wait for the Magical Express, ride to your resort, and then wait for the bus to the expo.  If you arrive at 2:05, you should probably expect to be at your resort no later than 4:30 or 5.  Then, you would need to catch the runDisney bus to the expo at Wide World of Sports.  They generally run every 15 minutes.    This would put you at the expo no later than 6 p.m. 

    I am notorious, though, for being paranoid about time!  It drives my family nuts.  If it were ME, I would be getting a cab.  Not only would I be worried about not making it in time, but I also like to have some time to shop at the awesome expo.  There are so many vendors with great running gear!

    So, while you should be able to use the Magical Express, I can tell you that I would be so preoccupied and worried about delays, that my trip would not be magical at all!  I do, however, have many friends (and a husband) who would be fine with waiting for the bus! 

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions leading up to your race weekend;)
