    Thank you 4 your response to my first question? Where is the best place to stay for DPHM weekend (2016), when can we book hotel for that weekend ? there will be 5 people in our group, where might i find more info in Chear squad as well thanks again

    Welcome back, Michelle! 

    You can't go wrong with any of the options available at Walt Disney World® Resort! And no matter where you choose to call home, all resorts are considered "host hotels" for this race, meaning event transportation will be provided to all race activities!

    Here are some of my favorite Resort Hotel options for travel groups of five:
    Disney's Art of Animation Resort Family Suites- Settle into a family suite that can sleep up to six! The best part about this option is the ability to get ready for the race without disturbing those that are not running, and do not need to be up at 2:45am. You'll also be able to relax at the largest pool on property.
    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside- This moderate level resort offers rooms that sleep five with two queen beds and a murphy bed. My favorite part of staying at this resort during a race weekend is the build-your-own pasta bar available at Riverside Mill Food Court.
    Disney's Beach Club Resort- This deluxe level property is perfectly placed in the heart of the magic in the Epcot® Resort Area. With two theme parks within walking distance and a plethora of dining options, you can't go wrong calling this your "castle" for your trip.

    You may book 499 days in advance by calling Disney directly at (407) 939-5277.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!
