    Next question- will my young kids (girl age 5, boy age 3) enjoy the disney half marathon breakfast and pasta dinner? Is it worth buying the extra tickets for our first RunDisney weekend trip? Also, When would you arrive? Thurs-Monday or Fri-Monday?

    Welcome back, Ashley! 

    The race enhancements offered by runDisney are great ways to add a little magic to your race weekend. Here are my thoughts on the Breakfast and Pasta in the Park Party. 

    Breakfast - This enhancement is only available on Friday and Saturday after the 5k and 10K events. I believe you mentioned you were running the Half Marathon on Sunday, correct? If so, you wouldn't need the Breakfast - you would want the Race Retreat. The Race Retreat is the ultimate option for any princess! With access before and after the race, you will truly feel like royalty. Also keep in mind, if you purchase the Platinum ChEAR Squad package for your family, access to the Race Retreat is included for them, but you would still need to purchase the Race Retreat for yourself in order to join them after the race. 

    Pasta in the Park Party - This is my top pick for adding a little magic to your weekend for your family. Not only is this party designed to properly fuel runners, but it's fun for the whole family! With a DJ spinning fun music, the children love to get out on the dance floor to show everyone how it's done. In addition, there are face painters, balloon artists, character photo opportunities with the Disney Princesses and all the Mickey Ice Cream Bars you can eat. Then, you can cap off the night with preferred viewing of Epcot's Nighttime Spectacular, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

    I hope this helps, Ashley! And keep the questions coming. I am here to help!
