Disney Enchanted 10K

Start & Finish at Epcot

This is the 3rd year for the Disney Enchanted 10K and it is a great addition to the weekend.  Perfect for those Princesses who are looking for more of a challenge than the 5K, but not quite ready for a half marathon.  It is also the first half of the Glass Slipper Challenge.

Here is all the information you need to know for this enchanted race around Epcot!

Resort Transportation

Race-Transportaion-SignAll Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, including Shades of Green and the Swan and Dolphin are Host Hotels for Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend.  Look for signs and runDisney officials for the location of your resort’s transportation.

Bus transportation for the Enchanted 10K will be available Saturday, February 20th from 3:30 am – 5:00 am and 7:00 am – 11:00 am for runners and spectators. For those staying at a Magic Kingdom resort on the monorail line (Contemporary, Polynesian and Grand Floridian), the monorail will begin running at the same time as the buses each day to take guests to and from Epcot.   Runners must board a bus or monorail no later than 4:00 am in order to make it to the corrals in time for the start of the race.

Shuttle service will be suspended between 5:00 am and 7:00 am because of road closures, but will recommence for spectators after 7:00 am.  Traffic into the Epcot parking lot will also be suspended at this time and all cars will be routed to the Magic Kingdom Parking lot where spectators can take the monorail to Epcot.  After the race, buses will be set by resort in the Family Reunion Area to take all participants back to their resorts.

Driving Directions

If not staying at a host resort, participants will need to provide their own transportation.  As usual, Disney says to EXPECT SIGNIFICANT DELAYS so make sure you leave yourself enough time.  Be sure to arrive at Epcot and be parked by 4:30 am to ensure you are in your corral by 5:00 am.

Bag Check

Bag check is located in the Wonder lot of the Epcot parking lot from 3:45 am – 9:00 am.  Participants MUST use the clear bag provided at the expo to check any belongings during the race and affix the label with their bib number on the outside.  All items will be inspected, so make sure to leave some extra time.  All bags must be checked prior to entering the start corrals. 

Tip for you: Put a small, lightweight backpack or duffle bag inside your clear gEAR bag to transfer everything into after the race.  You can then use the clear bag for all your sweaty race clothes!  

Staging Area & Start Corrals

The staging area and start corrals will be located in the Explore lot of the Epcot parking lot.  Participants are encouraged to line up in their corrals 30 minutes prior to the start of the race.  Your corral will be listed on your race bib and you will only be granted access to that corral or one behind you.

If you are participating in the Glass Slipper Challenge, you will have two letters on your race bib.  The first letter is for the 10K as seen here:
