    Hi, we are registered for the princess 10 K in February. We are staying at the Pop Century Hotel, would it be better to drive in or use the resort transportation for the race? Thanks!

    Hi, Elizabeth! 

    I am so glad to hear from you again! I hope you are getting your Advanced Dining Reservations all sorted out, your 180 day booking window will be opening soon. 

    When it comes to event transportation from Disney's Pop Century Resort, you really are in a centrally located spot to get to all race activities. The location of this resort is one of the many reasons I listed it as one of my top options for accommodations during a runDisney race weekend.

    Here are some are tips for race morning transportation:

    -No wait in the morning - you'll be able to leave your resort and drive straight to Epcot®. 
    -Bus transportation ends at 10:00am - if you think you'll want/need more time, having a personal vehicle will come in handy.
    -Should there be any inclement race morning weather, you would be able to stay in your vehicle for a bit longer.

    Event Transportation
    -It's part of the experience -  I have met some really great people while utilizing event transportation.
    -The buses are right by the Family Reunion Area and finish line when you've completed your race. Making it a much shorter walk. You will be parked quite a distance away if you drive.
    -You can relax and let Disney do the driving after your hard-EARned race.

    My top tip: No matter which form of transportation you choose, I suggest heading to the start by 4:00am!

    As always, you know I am here to help as you continue making plans.

    Have a great day, Elizabeth!
