    I just registered for Disney Marathon 2013. I will be traveling with 9 people. Where is the best place to stay and are there any discounts for the marathon runners?

    Hi Lauren!  Congratulations on signing up for the marathon!  It is going to be extra special this year since it's the 20th anniversary of the race.
    The great thing about marathon weekend is that ALL of the Disney World Resorts are host resorts.  This means they will all have free bus transportation to all race weekend events.  This is a huge benefit as nothing will be within walking distance from any resort.  So, I would check out the resorts in the link above to see which one fits your budget and theme preference.  I can honestly say that there is not a bad resort choice at Walt Disney World.  I usually stay at one of the Epcot area resorts (Beach and Yacht Club, Boardwalk, Swan and Dolphin) because my family's favorite park is Epcot. 
    You can get a discount on your resorts and much more when you have registered for a race. 

    Call 407-WDW-IRUN to make your Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend Reservations and to learn more about Disney Resort Guest benefits like complimentary transportation and extended Park hours or to book your Magic Your Way Package.

    You can visit the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend website and click on "travel details" to find all of this information. 

    Let me know if I can help you in any other way!  Good luck with your training!!
