    I am running the 5K wine and dine race on November 6th. I know we have an early start time, i think 7am. I wanted to know if we will be running in the park? Do we end the race in the park? Can our friends watch me run at any point during the race? Thanks

    Hello, Cynthia! 

    I hope you are excited to be participating in Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K during the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend! November will be here before you know it. 

    While this course does take you inside Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, it's only for mile 1-2, the rest of the race will actually take place around the Animal Kingdom Theme Park Parking lot. As far as your friends having the opportunity to spectate, the finish line bleachers would be the best spot. Spectators will not be allowed inside the theme park to view, but can line up almost anywhere along the part of the course that is in the parking lot. For their comfort and enjoyment, I'd send them straight to the bleachers. 

    I hope this helps, Cynthia! Please let me know if you have any further questions. I am here to help.
