    Will Fort Wilderness be bringing back the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot for 2022?

    Hey Howdy Hey, Michelle (great name)! Thank you for bringing this great question to us at planDisney.

    Well, you just happened to write about two of my favorite things – jogging and Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground! I love starting my morning with a jog on one of the many running trails and I've always been a fan of the Disney Fun Runs available at select Disney Resort hotels. Michelle, I'm sorry to say that the Fun Runs at the resorts have currently been paused. When speaking with a Cast Member, I was told that they will be returning but we don't quite know when we can expect them back. My best piece of advice would be to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, which is a fantastic resource that shares exciting updates like these first! 

    I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for, but Hakuna Matata! No worries! I have a few alternate ideas for you. First, I'd locate a running trail that's close to your Disney Resort hotel or has a scenic route that feels fun to you. Personally, my favorites are the Crescent Lake loop in the Epcot Resort Area and the trails at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Then, make an advance dining reservation for a celebratory meal at one of these locations. I'd suggest Beaches & Cream Soda Shop or Ale & Compass Restaurant after a Crescent Lake run, or Trail's End Restaurant after a jog at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

    Then the real fun begins! Load up a holiday playlist to run to, pop on a pair of seasonal Mickey Ears, lace up your favorite sneakers, and run! After your homemade Turkey Trot, enjoy a delicious meal (you earned it!) and treat yourself to a special pin or souvenir to mark the occasion. While I'm so sorry the "official" Disney Fun Runs aren't back quite yet, I think you'll be able to make your own magic and create something special and memorable this year. 

    I'm sending you all the faith, trust, and pixie dust for your upcoming vacation! If you have any other questions, please visit us again. After all, you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
