    Lori - Where should we stay for Marathon weekend? There will 1 Mickey, 1 Goofy & 1 Dopey in the room. We are looking for either a value or moderate resort. $, transportation, great resort dining & fun are our criteria. See you at the races!

    Hi Erin!  This is intriguing!  I am trying to figure out if you are Mickey, Goofy or Dopey!  I know which one I would be!!
    So, during marathon weekend, ALL of the Disney World Resorts will be host resorts.  This means that they will all provide bus transportation to and from race weekend events.  So, you can choose your resort based on what you like knowing that transportation will be taken care of.
    Budget-wise, one of the Value Resorts would be less expensive.  They are really nice resorts.  They all have fun themes and of course, like everything else at Disney, they are squeaky clean. 
    However, since you are interested in great resort dining, you may want to consider a Moderate Resort.  Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is beautiful and it offers more dining options than some other moderates.  Saratoga Springs is also gorgeous, and it is a short walk away from Downtown Disney and all that it has to offer.
    You may want to begin researching all of the resorts and amenities at each.  And then, after registration for the race opens, you will be able to see what the runner's discount rates are for each resort.
    I hope this information helps you!  Please let me know if you have any other questions about your upcoming runDisney vacation!!
