View Full Version : Uh-oh- I forgot about the marathon

We are planning to leave Fort Wilderness on Jan. 11th. Is traffic going to be a nightmare getting out of there with the marathon in full swing? What about arriving- we are arriving on Dec. 31st.? Is traffic going to be backed up forever trying to get into the Magic Kingdom? I guess I didn't think of traffic during my planning!

I would expect traffic to be quite heavy on New Year's eve.
I'm not sure what the exact route of the marathon is. I think it will depend on the runners' route, your route out and what time you're leaving.

You can take the back route to FW to avoid the traffic into MK. It's the scenic route, but works very well to avoid the traffic since honestly, the only traffic ever on the road is CMs, buses, and contractors since not too many seem to know the route. The marathon will slow you down a little bit with lane closures, but shouldn't be too bad. I'll PM you the directions to the back route...:thumbsup: :mickey:
