    Hi! My sis & I are running the Tinker Bell-our 1st trip to DL. Staying in a hotel xcross from the DL entrance. BUT 5/10 also is 180 days prior to her family trip to WDW-so she is hoping to make ADRs before running. Is there time?

    Hi, Anne!

    I hope the Wine & Dine Half Marathon went well for you despite the less-than-ideal conditions. I'm also excited to hear you are headed to Disneyland® for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend. It's the perfect celebration of whimsey and running. 

    I believe there will be time! Here are some tips to help get those Advanced Dining Reservations before you and your sister run off to Neverland. 

    1. Prioritize reservations by most important/hardest to get and make a list. She'll want to book by this list, even if it means going out of date order

    2. Advise her to wake-up about 30 minutes earlier than she would without needing to book dining reservations. There should be plenty of time if she does this. Disneyland is a walking resort, and based on your location you are only about a 10-15 minute walk from your hotel through the Downtown Disney District to your corrals. Getting around for a race at Disneyland is super easy and super quick! Which buys her more time. Plus, you'll be on west coast time - making it easier for east coasters to get up early on race morning. 

    3. *Top Tip - have her download the My Disney Experience Mobile App to her smartphone. If she's not able to get all her reservations booked before you need to leave for the race, she can book them from the corral on her phone! Easy as that! 

    With these tips, your sister should have no problem getting her top dining choices. And please let me know if you either of you have any additional questions, Anne! I'm here to help.
