    Hi Faith, My family is traveling to WDW in January after the marathon. I would like to go for a run at our resort. Can you recommend a running path? Thanks!

    Hi, Anne! 

    Recreational running around Walt Disney World® Resort is amazing! And with our official New Balance Running Trails available at many of our resort hotels, your fitness and training goals don't have to take a vacation. 

    I would love to know which resort hotel you are staying at, Anne, this information will help me to direct you to the nearest running path, or to the running path located at the resort hotel you are already residing in. 

    Here are my favorite New Balance Running Trails at Walt Disney World® Resort:

    • Disney's BoardWalk/Yacht Club/Beach Club Resorts - Nestled along Crescent Lake these Epcot Area Resorts boast one of the longer running paths available at Walt Disney World® Resort. When you complete the loop around all three resorts and add the path that leads you to Hollywood Studios, you could end up with a pretty decent long run, especially if you run the loop more than once. 

    • Disney's Polynesian Village Resort/ Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa - This running trail has you going between a tropical paradise and days-gone-by. Not to mention, getting views of Cinderella Castle in the background. This trail is a bitter shorter, but I was able to get in a 5K when I ran this path in June. 

    • Disney's Wilderness Lodge/ Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground - This path is the most shaded of all the New Balance Running Trails and offers the opportunity for you to get back to nature as you will often see wildlife on this path that travels between these two wonderful resorts. 

    I hope this helps, Anne! Please get back to me with where you are staying and I can go into greater detail about the path that would best suit your needs. Hope to hear from you soon! 

    Happy running,
