    Hi, Are the Disney Resort Fun Runs back? We are headed to Disney in April and were hoping to do one at our resort.

    Hi Chrys! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! Your trip is fast approaching! Just a couple of more weeks until you are back at the Most Magical Place on Earth! There is nothing better than staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Each one offers countless amenities and recreation activities for all Guests to enjoy. There is also something special about arriving underneath the Disney archways and not having to leave the magic until your departure day!

    The Disney Fun Runs are a great activity to start your day and meet some fellow Disney runners! They were being offered at select resorts typically once a week in the morning hours. Currently, the fun runs have not returned to Walt Disney World and there has been no announcement as to when they will. Although the fun runs are not affiliated with runDisney events, I am optimistic that we may see a return since runDisney races have made a strong comeback. I would continue to check the Disney Parks Blog for more information and definitely check with your resort upon arrival. 

    Just because the Disney Fun Runs are not currently available, don't let this stop you from creating your own race. Each resort has a running trail that will typically loop around the property. If you are heading down to Walt Disney World with a few other Guests, get together one morning to get your own run in. You can make custom bibs for each person to wear and celebrate at the end with a Mickey waffle or two! Or if you happen to be staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, grab a Mickey beignet in true Disney Fun Run fashion!

    Make sure to check out all the fun activities that your resort has to offer. Many of them include tennis and basketball courts, bike rentals, fishing, and many more to choose from. If you are looking for a break from the parks or just a change of pace, the various recreation offerings are the perfect place to start.

    Chrys, I hope you have the best time on your upcoming visit! Stop back any time to planDisney with any additional questions! 

    See ya real soon!
