If you a runner, you know that vacation doesn’t necessarily mean a break from training. But have no fear, there are many great running trails throughout the Walt Disney World® Resort hotels that are sure to offer fantastic views while keeping up your training miles! Here are a few of the best:

Disney’s Boardwalk Inn/Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts

The running path around the Epcot® resorts is one that can be customized for the mileage you need to get in! Run along Disney’s Boardwalk, toward Disney’s Hollywood Studios® and around Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. This is a wonderful path to enjoy in the morning as the sun is rising! The path covers anywhere from 7/8 mile to 3 miles, depending on your route.

The monorail isn’t the only mode of transportation connecting these wonderful resorts, there is also a great running path! Run around each resort for a mile long loop, or connect them together for a longer run. The serenity along the Seven Seas Lagoon will keep you going!

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge/Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

Looking for a more rustic running path? There is a great trail between Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground! This wooded area offers a unique running experience. The path offers mileage up to 2.5 miles between the two resorts.

Not staying at one of these resorts? Not a problem! Each Walt Disney World Resort hotel offers a running trail of at least a mile. Look for the New Balance Running Trail signs around the resort area or ask the front desk for a map.
