    Hi. I am running the princess 5k. I've signed my 3 YO son up for the 100m dash. What time will the kids' races be? I thought that I read no strollers allowed, but if he can't be with me then someone else needs to go to watch him? Please advise.

    Hi Abby!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you have an awesome weekend planned with yourself running the Disney Princess 5K and your little one taking part in their own runDisney Kids Race!

    For everyone's safety, strollers are not permitted on runDisney courses. So when you leave to run the Disney Princess 5K, someone else will need to be with your kiddo. If you are traveling on your own with your son, I'd recommend looking into one of the Childcare Services available at Walt Disney World. One of the independent providers is called Kid's Nite Out and they'll actually come and watch your son from the comfort of your own room. I know they also offer in park assistance, so I'd call to see what options they can provide you for watching him while you race. For more information and to book a reservation, please give them a call at 407-828-0920.

    The runDisney Kids Races start at 9:30 AM at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. With your race starting at 6 AM, I think you'll certainly have time to watch your little mouseketeer dash across his own finish line! I hope you both have a magical race and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back and ask!
