    I am running my first half marathon with my best friend from high school in November. What Disney restaurants do you recommend for a pre-race dinner since the race does not begin until 10pm?

    Hi Alyx!  The Wine and Dine half marathon is my favorite race.  It will be so fun for you and your best friend to race together and party after!

    I would probably recommend a restaurant that serves pasta.  You don't want to eat anything too high in fiber or too spicy before you run your race.  Epcot has some great restaurants.  The Italy pavilion has Via Napoli which is a pizza/pasta restaurant.  Japan's Teppan Edo is also good if you had chicken or steak with rice (protein and carbs!). 

    If you didn't want to be inside a park, there are several good restaurants at Downtown Disney.  You wouldn't need theme park admittance for there.  Portobello's has great Italian food and plenty of pasta choices! 

    I hope this helps and I hope you have a great trip with your friend.  Let me know if you have any other questions!
