    Hi - I registered for the 5K and 10K runs for this year's Princess 1/2 Marathon weekend. Since these races are held in/around Epcot, is it possible to walk to the starting corrals from BC, YC or BWI rather than have to rely on the buses?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elizabeth! 

    Congratulations on registering for both the Royal Family 5k & the Enchanted 10k during the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend

    Staying at an Epcot® Area Resort is a perfect location when participating in this regal race weekend. Not only is it convenient, but you'll have access to a plethora of wonderful dining options and you'll be within walking distance of both Epcot® and Disney's Hollywood Studios®.

    Unfortunately, being able to walk to the corrals from these resorts is not an option. Though it seems they are within a reasonable distance, the corrals are actually located on the opposite side of Epcot® theme park, along Epcot Center Drive. In addition, runDisney strictly prohibits runners from accessing the corrals from any location other than the marked path from the Start Zone to the corrals.

    I have stayed at all three of these resorts during a runDisney race weekend and have never had any trouble taking event transportation or driving over. My biggest piece of advice is get an early bus to avoid any anxiety you may experience with using the provided motorcoach transportation. 

    I hope you are excited, Elizabeth! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am here to help! 

    Wishing you a royal race,
