    Is it worth staying on a disney property for the disney world marathon weekend? Are there any special packages?

    Hello, Sarah! 

    When it comes to participating in a runDisney race event, staying on property is essential in ensuring you have an overall magical experience. Nothing beats staying in the middle of the magic! Here are just some of the reasons why I highly advocate staying at a Walt Disney World® Resort Hotel. 

    • Transportation: All Walt Disney World Resorts are considered "host hotels" during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, this means regardless of where you choose to stay, transportation to all race activities will be provided. 

    • Being able to play where you stay: Resort amenities in all levels of accommodations are alone worth staying on property. Whether you want to relax by a pool, play tennis, or use resort bus transportation to enjoy the day playing minature golf, or exploring Downtown Disney, you know you are in for a treat. 

    • Convenience: You placed so much time and effort into training for a race in the most magical place on earth, enjoy the magic and convenience of staying there as well. 

    You can also read a recent article I wrote for the runDisney Blog on my suggestions on where to stay for a runDisney race weekend. There is also an article on ways to save on accommodations and finding travel packages. Just select the highlighted links above for more information. 

    If you have any additional questions as you begin planning your runDisney-cation, please do not hesitate to ask! I am here to help.
