Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I'm getting excited for the Princess 1/2! I am also going to a conference that weekend and am staying at the DD Hilton. I know there is not transportation from my hotel, but will I be able to get to either the expo or the race from Downtown Disney?

- Hi Kirsten!
The Princess Half Marathon is a great weekend! You are going to love it:)
you could get from Downtown Disney to the Expo by Disney bus. You
would need to take a bus from Downtown Disney to one of the Disney World
Resorts and then use the runDisney buses from that resort to the expo.
However, this would be a very lengthy process. I recommend just
getting a cab directly to the Wide World of Sports complex for the expo
and packet pick-up.
This would not work on race morning, though,
because the Disney buses won't be running that early. So, on race
morning you will need to have a cab. You can arrange this in advance
with your hotel's front desk. I highly recommend leaving by 3 a.m.
Around 3:30 is when traffic picks up and you don't want to be stuck in
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
