If you're staying at a Disneyland® Resort Hotel you are within walking distance to all race weekend events.

If you're staying at a select Disneyland® Anaheim Area Hotel, complimentary Anaheim Transportation Network shuttles will depart every 20 minutes to the Disneyland® Resort Esplanade Shuttle Drop-Off area throughout the weekend during scheduled Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend events. You will receive a receipt from your driver the first time you board the shuttle. Please save this ticket for use over the entire Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend.

Guests not staying at an Anaheim Area Hotel will need to provide their own transportation to the Disneyland® Resort for the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend events. Standard parking fees apply.
