    May have to stay off site for PHM. Is parking free at Expo? Is Epcot entrance the only road section they close off? Is taxi a viable option race morning? Panel is awesome!!!

    Hi, Sarah! 

    I'm happy to hear you are all set to participate in the 2016 Disney Princess Half Marathon! And thank you so much for following up with another question. You know I am here to help you plan a royal runDisney-cation. 

    Parking for the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo is free of charge for all days of the event. So regardless of when you choose to attend, you can park at no charge. 

    For race morning transportation, you will access the Epcot parking lot via World Dr., Epcot Center Dr. will be closed to all traffic (this is where all the corrals are located and where the race starts). I would love to know where you are staying off-property so I may provide you more detailed driving directions. All traffic will feed to World Dr., but some routes are better than others. 

    A taxi service is a viable option, just make sure you call on MEARS Taxi Service, it's Walt Disney World® Resort's officially endorsed service. A Cast Member once told me, after a bad experience, to only take the yellow MEARS Taxi's - runner drop-off is available for guests that use this option as transportation. If possible, driving yourself in is the best option, just remember to go early. If you have a car, you have somewhere to wait for a little while if it's cold or raining, and you can always have your pre-race breakfast in the car. 

    I hope this helps, Sarah! I also hope your training is off to a great start. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
