    Hi planDisney! If I am not staying on property, am I able to utilize the running trails around the resort early in the morning? If so, when and where would be the best place to park? Thank you!

    Hiya, Autumn! I am so excited to see you back at planDisney. And I am absolutely thrilled you will be spending your weekend at the Most Magical Place on Earth.  

    I love early morning runs at Walt Disney World Resort. I've posted pictures of gorgeous sunrises around Barefoot Bay and Crescent Lake on Facebook. To the people who ask why I would run before a day logging all those steps at the theme parks, all I can say is "IYKYK."

    I don't think most people realize how many running paths and miles are available for runners, joggers, walkers and people looking for a lovely stroll. I really appreciate you wanting to enjoy these while you are at Walt Disney World. Unfortunately, these paths are limited to Disney Resorts Collections Guests. It's something to look forward to next time you stay on property.

    If you are looking to log some miles in the middle of the magic, have you considered runDisney? I love an early morning jog around a Walt Disney World Resort hotel property, but nothing beats running through a theme park before it opens for Guests. Registration for runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend starts in July. This weekend offers something for every runner: a 5K, 10K, and a half marathon. 

    I do hope your weekend is sprinkled with pixie dust and magic! You will still have a chance to catch the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. In addition to topiaries with character, they have a different kind of walking path: the Garden Graze stroll. It is so tasty!

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions as you plan for vacations to Walt Disney World Resort. You've got a friend in us!

    Thinking of the Happiest Things!
