    We are just starting to plan a trip to Disneyland in May, and just noticed the Tinkerbell Marathon weekend falls right in the middle of the dates we were looking to go. Does the park tend to be busiest the week BEFORE, or AFTER a run weekend?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heidi. I'm so glad you've stopped by. 

    I checked with Lori L., my fellow Panelist who's a runDisney specialist. Historically, the days leading up to a runDisney race are usually more crowded than afterwards. Participants are arriving to Disneyland Resort on various days, and getting there in time for the runDisney Health and Fitness Expo. Race number, shirt, and a gEAR bag are picked up at the Expo, and many Guests tend to arrive early to purchase official runDisney merchandise. With the race weekend culminating with a Half Marathon early Sunday morning, most race participants leave later that day or by Monday. 

    I hope this information is helpful for you as you continue to plan your magical vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth, Heidi. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have more questions.

I am a wife and mother to 2 children, a 14 year old daughter and 9 year old son. I have always enjoyed going to Disneyland Resort as a child and now that I am a mother, I love watching my children experience Disneyland Resort through their eyes. It is a true delight seeing my daughter wear a ball gown walking side by side with Cinderella or my son jumping gleefully after he defeated Darth Maul in a light saber duel! Learn More About Kiki
