    Hello! I am registered for the Princess 1/2.. my first ;) I have not signed up for any of the extras such as Cheer/pasta dinner etc. Recommend these? Do you know if all WDW resorts provides buses to the races? We are at Old Key West. Thank you!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney, Princess Mary! 

    I hope you are excited to be participating in the most royal race on earth! Once upon a time the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend was my first half marathon - you never know where your running fairytale might take you, too. 

    All Walt Disney World® Resort hotels will be offering event transportation for all race activities during this enchanted weekend. So you're all set at Disney's Old Key West Resort! 

    As far as the "extras" that are offered to help make your race weekend extra magical, I highly recommend them! Here are my favorites:

    The Pasta in the Park Party - This event is my favorite way to add extra magic to your miles. With a pasta (and chicken, too) buffet, all-you-care-to-eat Mickey Ice Cream Bars, a DJ spinning fun tunes, princess character photo ops, entrance into Epcot® Theme Park at 6:00pm and reserved seating for Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, not only is this a magical evening, but it's a great value too. 

    Race Retreat - This option gives you access to the Race Retreat Tent before and after the race and will include many of the amenities mentioned above. It's the ultimate way to pamper yourself. 

    ChEAR Squad for your favorite ChEARleaders  - If you are plan on bringing a group of spectators, or little ones, ChEAR Squad Packages are a great way to make sure they have a great experience and a place to sit. Their day will be just as long as yours!
