    We are visiting disneyworld this coming feb. as I am registered to run in the Princess Half Marathon..... soooo excited! Just wondering what time the race wraps up... so we can plan how much time we will have let for park fun at MK that day!

    Hi, Monica!

    The Princess Half Marathon 2012 is scheduled to start at 5:45 AM, with several different waves of runners leaving the starting line approximately 14 minutes apart.

    Depending on how many waves of runners need to be started, the race could conceivably take six to seven hours to complete. Unfortunately, due to the variable nature of he number of participants and the start time of the pacers, there's no real concrete way to answer with 100% certainty.

    Figure you can spend a good long afternoon and evening at the Magic Kingdom; according to the official calendar, the Magic Kingdom will be open until 9:00 PM with Wishes showing at 8:00 PM.

    Don't forget to wear your medal to the Park!

    Happy training!

    See you later, celebrator,
