    Hi, I am going to do the Princess 5K and 10k in 2017. I was wondering if you need to have a park hooper for the day of the races. Like since the start and finish is in Epcot does that mean I am only able to visit this park on the days of races?

    Hi Edith!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You do not need any type of ticket for the Princess 5K or 10K.  While the races do start and end in the Epcot parking lot, and the course does go through the park, you will not need a ticket.

    The race finishes outside of the park, so if you wanted to go into Epcot for the day (or any other park) after your race, you would need to purchase Walt Disney World theme park admission for that.  But, the race itself does not require any.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
