    Hello, I have just signed up for the Disney's Princess Half Marathon in Feb. 2014. I was wondering what the best Disney hotel would be for this race and also if my family/friends need to buy a ticket to the park the day of the race? Thank you!

    Hi Amanda!

    You are going to love the Princess Half Marathon!  It's such a fun and magical race!!

    For hotels, you should choose the Disney Resort that best fits your family's budget and taste.  All of the resorts will be "host resorts" for that weekend and will have complimentary bus transportation for runners and spectators to all of the race weekend events.  This is in addition to the normal Disney transportation available to all of the parks and Downtown Disney. 

    If you are planning to visit the parks while you are there, you will definitely need tickets.  Race registration does not include park admission for anyone.  You will run through some parks (and won't need a ticket for that), but if you wish to return to them, you will need park admittance.  The race will end in the Epcot parking lot.

    There will be spectator areas available (even inside of the Magic Kingdom) that don't require park admission.  Runners and spectators will be in and out of the Magic Kingdom before the park opens to the public that day.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions as you get ready for your big race!
