    I see that there will be road closures starting at 2 a.m. on April 15th due to the marathon. I am staying at the Dolphin and have a 7 a.m. flight on the 15th. Plan to use Uber to get to the airport. Will my travel be impacted?

    Hi there, Carey!

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney with your vacation planning question. It looks like you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in just a couple of short months - are you counting down the days yet!?

    I think it's great that you're planning ahead to make your airport transportation as seamless as possible. Carey, we'll actually be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the same time, because I'll be participating in this year's runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend! The Disney Pixar Monsters 10K will be taking place on April 15, 2023. Starting at 5:00 a.m., runners will work their way across Walt Disney World Resort on a 6.2-mile course. Though course maps have not yet been released, the race course may include the areas surrounding Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Since you'll be staying nearby at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, it's possible that road closures may impact your travel route that morning. I encourage you to account for potential delays in your travel time when planning your return to the airport that day.

    Carey, while staying at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, you're going to be so close to the magic happening at EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios! In fact, you'll have the ability to walk to both theme parks from your resort. The scenic stroll between Disney's BoardWalk and Disney's Hollywood Studios is one of my favorite walking paths on Walt Disney World Resort property! If you have the chance during your visit, I recommend trying out the new BoardWalk Deli for some simple (yet delicious) soups and sandwiches. Also, if EPCOT is on your agenda, don't miss EPCOT Forever, the nighttime spectacular which returns on April 3, 2023!

    I hope you find this information helpful and wish you a magical and memorable visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Carey! If you have any additional planning questions, please feel free to stop back by planDisney again anytime. We're happy to help!

    See ya real soon,
