    We are coming for marathon weekend '17& have 8:00am reservations at CRT. Will I be able to get from AofA to MK that morning with the marathon going on? I know from other marathon trips that roads are closed for awhile on the full marathon day!

    Hi Carrie!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You should be absolutely fine to make your reservation.  There will be some road closures during the Walt Disney World Marathon, but buses will still be making their way to the theme parks.  Since your reservation is so early, you may want to consider using a taxi or Uber service to get you there.  Check with your front desk to see what time the earliest bus will be running (normally it's one hour before the first park opens) and see what they recommend.

    The marathon route travels through the Magic Kingdom around mile five, so runners will be clear of the park before it's scheduled to open.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
