- Hi Anie!
Congratulations on signing up for your first runDisney race! I just know that you will love it and become a lifelong runDisney fan:)
You will definitely need to pick your race packet up the day before the race, as there will not be any packet pick-ups on race morning.
RunDisney requires everyone to be in their corrals no later than 30 minutes prior to the race start. I like to get to the starting area at least an hour and a half early. If you are staying at a Disney Resort, then you can take a runDisney bus to the start area. If you are driving in, you will want to be there even earlier. If I drive myself, I usually plan on getting there around 3:30 a.m. I know it's very early, but the traffic gets really bad after that, and I don't like the stress of being stuck! I just get there early, eat my breakfast, and dance along with the DJ:)
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
