    Hi Lori! the upcoming Princess is my first runDisney event and I am STOKED! I bought my husband and 7yr old son Platinmum ChEAR Squad pkg. Can they arrive 30-60 min before my anticipated finish? adn what's the best way for them to get there?

    Hi Lori!  You have a great name!  I bet you are getting excited about the Princess!  Your husband and son will be so glad they have the chEAR squad package.  If you are staying at a Disney host resort, they can use the bus transportation that runners use.  The buses will be lined up outside of the host resorts beginning at around 3 am.  The platinum chEAR squad package also includes use of the "race retreat" tent after the runners have left.  This is a great place for your husband and son to hang out and wait for you.  There will be food, drinks, sofas, TV's, computers, characters, etc., and it will be nice and warm inside the tent.  Your husband and son can also use the monorails to go to the Magic Kingdom if they want to see you running on Main Street there.  With the platinum chEAR squad, they will be able to enter the priority viewing area right in front of Cinderella Castle.  They will also have the priority bleacher seats to see you crossing the finish line.  You can sign them up to get runner tracking text alerts so they can be alerted when you cross the 5K, 10K and 15K lines.  The alerts will also give them your estimated finish time.  You will find a link to the runner text alerts on the Princess Half Marathon page on runDisney's website, it will be posted about a week before the race.  You can also find more information about the chEAR squad amenities on the runDisney website. 
    If you are staying off of Disney property, you can print out the race weekend travel directions online (because there will be road closures, so GPS directions don't always work). They will also be available to pick up at the Expo on race weekend.  Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck!
