    Did the Princess in February and loved it. Now I am bringing my husband and I am doing the Tower of Terror 10-miler. I was told some Disney resorts are within walking distance to the start of the run @ Disney Studios, is that true? If so, which ones?

    Welcome back, Roxanna! 

    I'm glad to hear everything went so well during the Disney Princess Half Marathon that you are already planning your next runDisney race event! 

    There are a few resort hotel locations that are within walking distance to Disney's Hollywood Studios, location of the Start Zone area for the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™10-miler. These resorts include:

    -Disney's BoardWalk Inn & Villas (approximately .90 from the Inn section and .85 from Villas)

    -Walt Disney World Swan (approximately .85 a mile)

    -Walt Disney World Dolphin (approximately .90 a mile)

    -Disney's Yacht Club Resort (approximately 1 mile)

    -Disney's Beach Club Resort & Villas (approximately 1.25 miles)

    There are also many other resorts available that are considered host hotels, meaning bus transportation to all race events will be available to/from that resort. Additionally, discounted room rates and specially priced theme park tickets are available for this race! Just click the highlighted link above to check out this great offer from runDisney.

    I hope this information has been helpful, Roxanna! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any additional questions you may have as you prepare to "run 'till you drop".

    Have fun in the 5th dimension!
