    My husband and I are going to run the glass slipper challenge we have 4 kids and grandparents want to cheer us on do we have to purchase a cheer zone package for them to see us run if they do what is the best cheer package to order

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    It's always fun to receive questions from fellow South Carolinians!

    You do not need to purchase a chEAR Squad Package in order for your family to spectate your race during the Glass Slipper Challenge, as part of the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. There are various points along the half marathon course where your family will be able to stand and see you run. However, for the 10k, spectators can only view their runner at the starting line and finish line--there is no runner viewing along the 10k course.

    My suggested viewing spot for the half marathon is along Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom. Not only is this the most magical spot along the course, but with 4 children, you'll want access to a clean restroom. The most important thing about viewing from the Magic Kingdom is for your family to get there early! They can board a Race Transportation bus with you from your Walt Disney World® resort hotel to the Start Zone and then take the spectator bus to Magic Kingdom. Keep in mind, you will want to be on the bus to the Start Zone no latter than 3:30am to get your family to Magic Kingdom when it opens at 5am for spectators.

    If you do choose to purchase a chEAR Zone Package, the Gold package will allow your family to spectate in reserved locations, including grandstand seating at the finish line on a first come, first serve basis. In addition, they'll have access to hot & cold beverages and a restroom--making their race experience magical too!

    I hope this information is helpful! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have as you plan and prepare for an enchanted weekend. 

    Happy Training!
