    Thanks for your answer, Faith. That's great. You asked where my family is staying - it's Warrior Lane in Kissimmee. We have stayed in that area before and it is close to the parks but any advice is gratefully received.

    Hi, Sue! 

    I'm so happy to hear from you again! I have great news, waivers (which include your bib number on the bottom of the form) are now available. Just select the highlighted link to print your waiver for the Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna®. 

    I'm assuming since you are staying off-property you will have a vehicle and will be driving to the race events and expo? For the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo, you will head to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Parking is free for all guests. Remember, you must attend the Expo prior to your race day to obtain your packet, bib, race shirt and gEAR Bag. 

    Here are the Expo hours for the weekend: 
    10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6, 2016
    9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 7, 2016
    9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, January 8, 2016
    10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 9, 2016
    Location: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

    Parking for the marathon is free and available through the main entrance of Epcot Theme Park. My biggest piece of advice is to arrive early. With 25,000+ runners, and limited parking, you will want to be sure you allow enough time to park, go through bag check, and make your way to the corrals. No parking will be available beginning at 5:00am due to road closures. I recommend arriving by 3:45am. 

    Hope this helps, Sue! We are getting close :) Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I'll be available to help you with all your runDisney planning until December 31st.
