    We will be in WDW the beginning of Feb! I would love to do either the Regatta Run or the Sea Side Sprint. I thought they started at 8am and planned character meals accordingly; however, I just saw that these may start at 9 - can you clarify start times?

    Hi there, Noelle! Thank you for taking the time to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Walt Disney World Resort Fun Runs are perfect for families, and the best thing is you don't have to arrange for a 3:00 AM runDisney wake-up call!

    Put some wind in your sails with the 3K Regatta Run, which is held on Thursday mornings at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Typically, this race starts at the resort's Bayside Marina 8:00 AM, but in January and February, it begins at 9:00 AM. Participants get a little swag bag filled with goodies such as an exclusive trading pin, sunglasses, and earbuds. 

    The 1.4 mile Sea Side Sprint is at Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and it also has a 9:00 AM start on Fridays in January and February. The race starts on the BoardWalk outside of Jellyrolls. Racers can celebrate afterward with a complimentary Goofy Glacier slushy. You can pre-register for both of these activities by calling Enchanting Extras at (407) 939-7529, and select option #3. Guests also have the option to pay at the starting line.

    I'm sorry that the later start may make you miss your Character Meals, Noelle. You can modify or cancel your reservations online through your My Disney Experience account, or call Disney Dining at (407) 824-1391.

    I hope you have a magical time with Mickey next week, Noelle! See ya' real soon!
