    Running marathon in Jan 2014 (my first..yay!). Is it hard for my family to get to the finish line later, around 10 so kids can sleep in and avoid 4am wake up call. Is there one resort that will make transportation to Epcot easier for both me and them?

    Hi Melissa!

    Yay!!!  I just ran my first full marathon at the 2013 Disney World Marathon.  I am already counting down until I can do it again!

    It is not hard at all for your family.  There will be buses running from ALL of the Disney World Resorts to all of the race weekend events.  (Expo, Kids Races, 5K, Pasta Party, Half Marathon, Full Marathon)  So, you can choose the resort that best fits your family's theme preference and budget.  The buses will be running all morning, with a brief break as the race begins. 

    The buses will also take them (and you) back to your resort when the race is over!

    You will find packages for the Disney World Marathon available on the website once registration opens.  But, you can book your resort any way you want.  Keep watch of the Disney Special Offers page.  There are often discounts on there that are a better deal than booking with the runner's discount package. 

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
