    Danielle from NY Asked

    Does the Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs hotel provide shuttle transportation to the Star Wars Half Marathon race and/or Expo? Is there a fee? Thank you.

    Hi Danielle!  I bet you're busy training for your run to "a galaxy far, far away!"  Star Wars Rival Run Weekend takes place this April 4-7, and you'll be running at lightning speed for 13.1 miles through the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. You'll also get the opportunity to meet up with characters from the Dark and the Light Sides along the way.  There will plenty of PhotoPass Photographers along the course, so you might want to purchase Memory Maker before your trip.

    I heard you're staying at Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs ® Resort Area.  I called today and spoke with a guest services agent, and she confirmed that there is a hotel shuttle for $10/ person each way which starts running at 3:30 am.  You'll need to be in your corral prior to 5:00 am, so if you feel this is cutting it too close, try contacting Uber or Lyft.  I always make sure I get to the race start by 4:00 am (it's important to be first in line for the porta-potty)!  You'll also want to visit the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo which runs from Thursday- Saturday at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to pick up your bib.  

    So, get ready. Get set. Go! Hope you have a blast and enjoy the Disney magic as the miles whiz by you!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
