    I am a triathlete and I need to train for biking while on vacation. We will be staying at the Carribean Beach Resort for 2 weeks. I am looking for a fitness center that I can use that has an upright indoor bike (not recumbent). What are my options? Thanks

    Hi Queenie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. As an aspiring marathoner, I’m sending you all the magical good training vibes as you put in the hard work for your triathlon, and I applaud your commitment to sticking to your training plan even while in The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Queenie, I checked in with a Cast Member about your question. Unfortunately, because there is not a fitness center at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, you will not have access to gym facilities. You could look at changing your reservation to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (another moderate resort), where La Vida Health Club offers a range of fitness equipment, including regular and recumbent bicycles. You could also explore switching to a Deluxe Resort, which also offer fitness center access. If you’d like to get more information or price this out, please call (407) 939-1936.

    I’m not sure if this would work with your training plan, but another option is to rent a bike at one of Walt Disney World's rental locations (including Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort). I know triathlon training requires a lot of riding, so this option really depends on your needs; I just wanted to put it forward as an option. There are beautiful running and biking trails throughout Walt Disney World, so if you can arrange to bring or rent a bike during your stay, you’d have no shortage of options for those magical miles.

    Queenie, I’m rooting for you and hope you’re able to find a solution that works with your training plan so you can make like Hercules and make every mile worth your while as you “Go the Distance” toward your goals!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
