    I have reservations for two restaurants, one in the morning and in the afternoon and want to know will some areas be closed or blocked due to the marathon and when is the marathon scheduled to end?

    Hello, Artina!

    Welcome back to planDisney with another question about your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort! It may be daunting to have a runDisney event happening on the same day as your visit, but fortunately, Disneyland has detailed plans to ensure both runners and park Guests have a great day!

    As you know, the Disneyland Half Marathon is taking place on January 14, 2024. The good news is that since the Half Marathon is scheduled to begin around 5:00 AM, impacts to other Guests should be limited. Most of the Half Marathon takes place outside of Disneyland Resort, and the majority of runners will complete the race long before the theme parks open at 9:00 AM.

    Getting to your dining reservations shouldn't be an issue, although I do recommend giving yourself a little extra time to head to the restaurant given the extra events occurring that day. If you are driving in just for the day, please keep in mind that some roads will be temporarily closed during the race. Road closures can be found on the runDisney event website

    Artina, thanks again for visiting us at planDisney! Eating at Disneyland Resort is one of my favorite hobbies (well, if you can call eating a hobby, which I certainly do!). Enjoy your meals and your time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
