    For the 2019 Star Wars Rival Run 10k, are any hotels close enough to allow you to walk from the hotel to the 10K starting location? I would not mind walking up to a mile (which helps me warm up).

    Hi Rebecca!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know the race mornings for a runDisney event are very early, but I promise you the 3 AM alarm is so worth it!

    For runDisney events, the courses are subject to change at any time, but the 2019 Star Wars Rival Run 10K is currently planned to start in the Magic Kingdom parking lot, similar to the 2018 course. If you would like the option to walk to the start line, the only Walt Disney World Resort hotel this would be a possibility from is Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. I have stayed here in the past for Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend the ability to walk to the start was a wondEARful added benefits to staying at this location.

    I hope this helps in your planning and May the Force be with you on the running course!
