    I've signed up for the 5k and Pixie Challenge 2017! I'm staying off property.  Is there any transportation provided to runners that will get me to the events and back for a quick shower before hitting the parks?

    Hi Deanne!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm traveling to Anaheim for Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend too and as our races are quickly approaching, I couldn't be more excited!

    In contrast to Walt Disney World, you'll find that several of the non-Disney owned hotels near Disneyland Resort are still within walking distance of the parks. If you are looking at a map of the Disneyland Resort area, a large majority of the Good Neighbor hotels are very close. In my opinion any hotel along S Harbor Boulevard south of the 5 and north of Orangewood Avenue are withing walking distance. In addition to this, I'd include the hotels along W Katella Avenue as well, from S Harbor Boulevard to S Walnut Street. 

    If you are concerned with the additional walking pre/post-race or your hotel is not in the area I listed, I'd contact your specific hotel to ask them because it will vary between each. I know some will provide transportation, but others ask that Guests purchase an Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART) ticket and use that shuttle service.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions and I'm sending pixie dust your way for a magical race!
