    Hello! Running the 1/2 in Jan. 2017. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside. What time should we get on the bus to get to the race? Thank you for your help!

    Hi Anissa!

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

    The Walt Disney World Half Marathon is getting close!  It's a great race and really fun race weekend.

    You will receive instructions in the official event guide a couple of weeks prior to your race. Normally, they require runners to be on a bus by 4:00 a.m.  Buses usually begin loading at 3:00 a.m.  Personally, I like to be on a bus no later than 3:30.  Lines can get rather long, and I don't like feeling stressed about getting to the start area.  I do have some friends that prefer to get on as late as possible.  That's a personal preference and whatever works best for you.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions and good luck with your training.
