    Hello,

    Going to be registering for the full Marathon. On the Run Disney website it states that bibs and packets are to be picked up prior to the race. Does anyone have any idea when the pick up is? I'll be travelling from the UK so I'll have to plan flights accordingly.

    The Expo (where you pick up your packet) will open the Wednesday before. You have from then until the Expo closes on the Saturday night before the marathon to pick up your packet. Here were the hours for the Expo this year:
    • Wednesday, January 4, 2017 — Noon - 8:00 p.m.
    • Thursday, January 5, 2017 — 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
    • Friday, January 6, 2017 — 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
    • Saturday, January 7, 2017 — 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

    At the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. Usually, bib pickup is in one building, and then merchandise and vendor booths are in another. You can drive and park there, or if you're staying in a Disney resort, there will be special bus (motor coach) transportation available.
