    Hi there, We will be staying at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge during the 2016 Cigna Marathon, I just wanted to make sure that there is, in fact, transportation leaving from this resort the morning of the race. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kimberly! 

    I hope you are looking forward to the 2016 Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna®. January will be here before you know it. 

    You've made an excellent choice in selecting Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge as your home during runDisney's premier race weekend. I can confirm that this unique resort hotel is in fact a "host hotel" for this race event. This means you will have access to event transportation to all race activities, including the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. You can relax and let Disney do the driving. 

    The biggest piece of advice I would like to share regarding event transportation from this resort (my home during Marathon Weekend for the past two years), is to plan on taking transportation on race morning as early as possible to avoid the anxiety of taking a later, more crowded bus. I suggest to plan on boarding as close to 3:30am as possible. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Kimberly! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help you plan a magical runDisney race experience.
