    We are planning on racing the Half Marathon on Jan. 12th.Which resort is the best/closest to the Starting line and will there be transportation provided that morning to the Start? We are so excited! Thank you and can you give me any other helpful tips?

    Hey there!  The Disney World Half Marathon is a great race on a great course!

    The starting area will be in the Epcot parking lot.  This means that the Epcot area resorts (Beach Club, Yacht Club, Boardwalk, Swan and Dolphin)  are the closest to the start.  However, ALL of the Disney resorts will be running buses to and from all race weekend events.  Even if you stay at an Epcot area resort, you would still need to take a bus to the starting area.  The park will be closed that early in the morning, so there is no easy way to walk to the start. 

    You should browse the Disney Resorts and find the one that you like best.  Transportation will be taken care of at all of them.  You can book them for marathon weekend by calling 407-WDW-IRUN.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
