The Speedway Gas Station at the Transportation and Ticket Center near to the Magic Kingdom will be closing for a lengthy refurbishment from next week.

Beginning February 12 2018 and lasting for several weeks, the refurbishment will include a new Speedy Cafe, offering quick service food with both indoor and outdoor seating. Ordering takes place at self service screens, and then each item is freshly made to order. Read more about Speedy Cafe at the Speedway site.

Menu items will include pizzas, paninis, coffee, breakfast sandwiches, frozen yogurt and more.

During the closure, the other Speedway locations at Disney's BoardWalk Resort and Disney Springs will remain open as normal.

any word on how this will be accessed once the roadway changes are complete?

Better, they are using "predictive ordering". They will know what you want before you do and have it prepared before you decide to stop.

Is their quick serve using mobile online ordering?

runDisney does a great job with hydration stations. And plenty of PoPs at the staging/start/finish areas. Along the race course, until you reach a park, not so much.

A marathon where I volunteer has hydration stations every mile, and at least 3 (sometimes up to 10) PoP's at each one...plus something like 240 or so at the start/finish line. That sounds like a minimum standard to me...

That's my stop on the way home, since I stay in MK resorts. Guess I'll have to now loop back to the one on Buena Vista.

That bathroom manages to show up just when it's needed. runDusney's idea of port-a-potties along the race course is too few and too far between.

This sounds great. We stop there frequently, mostly because by the end of the work week I only have half a tank left, and that will get us to property on the weekend, but only about halfway back home. We do pass a new WaWa on our way home now, though and have been stopping there for some hoagies.

I'm sure they will have long rows of port-a-potties... ;) :hungover:

There goes my first potty break for the Princess Half.
