    Trip is already planned for Jan 7-12, 2014. Wasn't thinking much about Marathon affecting our visits to the parks. However, will there be any problems taking buses to any of the parks from POP during those days? Do roads become entirely closed?

    Hi Linda!

    Marathon Weekend is a fun weekend to be at Walt Disney World.  You may feel like you see runners everywhere, but really, the crowd levels are very moderate!

    There will be some road closures on both Saturday and Sunday, although Saturday's will end much earlier.  Sunday is the full marathon, and therefore, covers more area and takes longer to complete.

    However, the Disney buses are well aware of the closures and will know which routes to take to get guests to the parks.  Runners will be using special runDisney buses to go to the race events, so you will be just fine!

    I hope you have a great trip!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
