Marathon Weekends Return to Hilton Bonnet Creek

2016 will mark my 4th year running at Disney. Since January 2012, I have ran every runDisney event and challenge that is offered in FL (with the exception of the Jingle Jungle 5K) and have stayed all over the city of Orlando for runDisney races, including on Disney property. While Disney property is amazing, it can tend to be pricey at the non-value resorts. When I was introduced to Hilton Bonnet Creek Marathon Weekends earlier this year, I knew this was my new home for runDisney events.
Hilton Bonnet Creek caters to runners. They offer amazing discounts, transportation to the start, complimentary runners breakfast and even cheerleaders - yes cheerleaders, at 3am. The breakfast is every runners dream - bagels with peanut butter, fruit, muffins, protein bars, juice, coffee. All of this is included with the Marathon Weekends package.
With the proximity of Hilton Bonnet Creek to Epcot, it is a no-brainer to stay here. They are just as close as the Disney races, with first class amenities for less than $140 a night.

During Marathon Weekends at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, you'll receive the following:

  • Complimentary bus transportation to and from Half/Full Marathons
  • Carb-Load Pasta Dinner options
  • Personalized assistance from our Runner’s Concierge
  • Complimentary snacks and beverages before the races!
  • Encouragement & recognition from our Marathon cheerleaders...even at 3 am!
  • A Welcome Runner's Amenity
  • Special rate on accommodations exclusive to marathon runners
  • A 2 pm late check-out time
  • 10% food & beverage savings card to be used during your stay

Rates are currently available for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend along with Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. I am quite certain 2016 Princess Half Marathon Weekend will be added to this lineup within the next two weeks.
