Disney World Race Weekends - 10 Things You Need To Know

1. Late Sleepers Beware

Disney races start early to ensure the roadways are clear of runners before park opening.  Arriving at the start line at least an hour before the race begins is my recommendation to ensure you have time for a few photos, enjoying a snack and to get in the right mindset before walking to your start wave.  This means that you will be waking up early to catch a bus to Epcot from your resort.  Set several alarms and schedule an in room wake up call to ensure you do not oversleep and miss the race.
