    We are running in the wine and dine half marathon in November, and my kids are running the 5K in Animal Kingdom. We are staying at Saratoga Springs. Is there transportation to get us to the races or is it easier to drive ourselves from the hotel?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lauren! 

    I hope you are looking forward to participating in the 2015 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend! I'm also excited your children will be running in Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K - have them wear something festive, it's part of the fun. 

    I also have great news for you, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is a "Host Resort" for this delicious race weekend. This means you will have event transportation for all race activities, including the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo. I do suggest utilizing race transportation; when Disney does the driving, it's Hakuna Matata when trying to get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park for the 5K. 

    I hope this is helps, Lauren! Please let me know if you should have any further questions as you continue planning and preparing. I'm here to help you plan a magical runDisney race experience.
