Be prepared for an early morning, I will tell you that. I recommend staying on site at one of the select resorts. The big reason is it will give you transportation to and from the race on Disney buses, as well as your family.
You will have all kinds of entertainment a…long the race course including characters, music and so much more!! I highly recommend participating in one of the many races at Disney.

Be prepared to sign up early as the races do sell out!! Being on the email list will help you.
