Published: February 23, 2024

There has been a lot of construction recently around Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

The traffic patterns have been changing near Floridian Way and Seven Seas Drive, but the roads are going to be closed for an entirely DIFFERENT reason soon. We are here to warn you so you can avoid any transportation issues during your visit to Disney World.

Disney World has a big event coming up the weekend of February 23rd through the 25th. This is when the runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend is taking place. 


One perk of running a runDisney race is the unique opportunity that racers have to run on property and through some of the Disney World theme parks. With this, Disney has to clear certain parts of the race course to allow runners to safely get by.

The runDisney Princess Half Marathon course will cause certain roads near Polynesian Village Resort, the Grand Floridian, Wilderness Lodge, and the Contemporary to be closed or restricted on February 24th and 25th.

Restrictions and closures will take place on February 24th from 3AM to 7:30AM to accommodate the Princess 10K. The following day, February 25th, they will take place from 3AM to 10AM to accommodate the Princess Half Marathon.

If you plan to head over to these resorts, Magic Kingdom, or the Transportation and Ticket Center, we suggest giving yourself extra time to travel. This way you will not be late to your destination.
