    Is there a website address that provides more information on transportation options for Disney Princess Half Marathon spectators - stroller accessible routes to view racers on course? Will Disney Lyft cars be running early? Traveling with 2 year old!

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel, Brandi! Just a couple more sleeps until Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend!  

    Spectating is quite the sport when it comes to runDisney, and the runDisney website is the best place to get information. Visit the page for the Spectator Viewpoint Locations, and don't forget to sign up for live, online Runner Tracking. I did speak with a super helpful runDisney Cast Member, and I'd be happy to share some of the information I gathered.

    Bus transportation from Walt Disney World Resorts (including the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels) will run on Sunday from 3:00 AM until 5:00 AM. There will be road closures after this time due to the race, but bus transportation will resume again at 7:00 AM. Minnie Van Service typically starts at 6:30 AM, but they may have difficulty that morning with the road closures. For spectators, I'd recommend being on the bus to Epcot before 5:00 AM. From there you can follow the Cast Members' instructions to the Imagine Parking Lot where the finish line is, or hop on the monorail which starts running at 5:00 AM to the TTC (mile 3.8).  Here, you can also transfer to the resort monorail, and get off at either Disney's Grand Floridian Resort (mile 7.2) or Disney's Polynesian Village Resort (mile 7.7). These areas won't be quite as crowded as the finish line and may be more comfortable with a stroller. Spectators can also take the monorail to Magic Kingdom Park (mile 5.1), but this area will definitely be more congested.

    Don't forget to pack your tutu or Sparkle Skirt, Brandi! You'll also want to save some room in your luggage for all the fun 2019 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Merchandise that will be at the Expo!

Meet the Panelist: Eean, Pennsylvania

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania! I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique. It's incredible how many people you can find who love talking about "The Most Magical Place On Earth!" I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at my monthly Bunco club for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
