    My wife is running in the Princess Half-Marathon on 2/25/18, which starts at Epcot at 5:30. Runners are encouraged to get there around 4:00. We are staying at Grand Floridian. On race day, will the monorail run early enough for her to take it?

    Dear Christopher,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about your wife, who is running the Princess Half Marathon very soon!

    The great news is that the Walt Disney World Resort provides coach bus transportation to and from the ESPN Wide World of Sports for the race expo events, and also to the race starting lines! I just recently participated in the Walt Disney World Resort Marathon weekend and I was so pleased with the quick transportation all weekend long! It was fantastic. I'll tell you, getting into one of those comfortable coach bus seats after a hard race was the best feeling!

    When you arrive at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, you can double check with a friendly Cast Member and they will be happy to point out exactly where the transportation will pick up. There is also very clear signage at each Walt Disney World Resort hotel. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
