My husband and I both want to run the Disneyland 5k at the end of August and let our 5 year old run the kids race. We live 7 hours away, so it isn't like family or friends will be there. I don't know what to do with our son while we race since jogging strollers are not allowed. How have some of you runners solved this? Are there babysitting options through the Disney hotels?

Guests over 18 may make a reservation by stopping by Guest Services or calling (714) 635-2300. Pinocchio's Workshop is located at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
*this may not solve your problem, I think their hours are limited, but perhaps they have something for during the race. - bluefairy

@evilqueen , that's not totally accurate . Hotel guests at the disneyland hotel and paradise pier may use their services as well . Difference being if you stay at The grand you can make your reservations up to 2 mos in advance . Guests of the other two resort hotels have to call day of and it is dependably upon availability - eviljules 281.3 #724 4:13PM
Thank you! That may come in handy other times as well - duckymomo 23.9 #4762 7:10PM
Can he manage the 5k race with you? I think it's a family run, so I believe he is allowed to. - meridafan

I'm not sure his little legs can make it 3.1 miles. I was considering testing out walks around our neighborhood - duckymomo 23.9 #4762 1:22PM
I saw so many little kids with more energy than me during the 5K so you should definitely test it out in your neighborhood :) - Jenniferr 428.0 #295 2:07PM
