    Hi, I am going to be running the Darkside Half Marathon in April at Walt Disney World. Which Resort is most conveniently located to the start of the race? Thank you.

    Hi Karen!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side is scheduled to start on Floridian Way and end at Epcot.  The resort that will most likely be closest to the start is Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.  The Epcot- area resorts; Beach Club, Yacht Club, Boardwalk Inn and the Disney Swan and Dolphin will be closest to the finish.

    Every Walt Disney World Resort will have complimentary bus transportation to and from each race weekend event. So, you can stay at any resort with no transportation worries!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
