    We are visiting WDW in February (18-24) and I just saw there will be some races at some of the parks during our visit. How will this impact us and our experience?

    Hi Jessica!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You're correct that Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend runs from February 23-26.  But, no worries! The only race that is still going on during regular park hours is the half marathon on Sunday, February 26. Only the 5K will take place during your visit (Friday, February 24).  It begins and ends before any parks open up, so you won't even know it happened.

    Crowd levels won't really be affected during your stay either.  Saturday can trend a little more crowded during race weekends, but that is after your visit.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
