    I am running Dopey's Challenge. My mom and daughter are traveling with me to Florida. Do they each need to buy a ticket into the parks for each day, each race in order to be at the finish line for me? Do I need to buy a ticket? Thank you kindly!

    Hello, fellow Dopey Challenge runner! 

    I'm excited to hear you are participating in runDisney's ultimate race challenge - it's quite the accomplishment. 

    Your family will not need to purchase theme park tickets to see any of your big moments crossing the finish line as it is located in the Imagine Lot section of Epcot's parking lot (the finish line is in the same spot for all four races). There is first-come, first served grandstand seating at the finish line where they will be able to see you. I do suggest they make a sign to hold up - with thousands of runners crossing the finish line, they might miss you, but if they have a sign, you could spot them and wave. You will not need a park ticket either. The only reason you would need park tickets is if you and your family want to enjoy some time in a theme park during normal park hours after your races. 

    I hope this helps, Kimberly! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have as you plan and prepare for the Dopey Challenge. I am here to help you navigate the ins and outs of this unique race.
