    hi! I am running the Walt Disney marathon this coming January; friends who ran this before suggested renting a car, but i was wondering, if I fly into Orlando airport, stay at a Disney Resort, do I really need one?? What's one hotel you would suggest?

    Hi Pearline!  Congratulations on signing up for the 20th anniversary of the Disney World marathon!  It's going to be a great race!

    If you fly into Orlando (MCO), and stay on property, then you really won't need a car.  The Magical Express will take you from the airport to your resort and then Disney buses and runDisney buses will get you anywhere you need to go during the weekend.

    Since all of the Disney Resorts will be host resorts and have buses running to all of the race events, there really isn't a bad choice.  If budget is not an issue, my very favorite resort is the Beach Club Resort.  I love being able to walk into Epcot and being so close to Hollywood Studios.  I also love the Boardwalk area and everything you can do (and eat) that is so close to that resort. 

    But honestly, all of the resorts are special and unique in their own way.  There is something offered for every theme and every budget!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
