A Sweet Deal for WDW Marathoners

16 Dec

Are you running the Walt Disney World Marathon in January?

Are you still looking for a place to stay? If you’re like me and trying to take advantage of the awesome Disney resort discounts, you’re most likely splitting up your stay in several resorts because they’re booked up. Well, I have an offer for you!

The Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort, which is right inside the Disney gates and right around the corner from the race start, is offering a Marathon Package starting at $179/night.

The package includes:

  • Complimentary, direct transportation to race venue (which is extremely important for any race because driving there yourself could cause delays because of traffic).
  • Pasta dinner at Harvest Bistro with proof of race registration
  • 20% Off any spa treatment at Guerlain® Spa
  • Welcome Fitness Amenity


I can’t help but swoon over this resort. I mean, look at the view of the golf course!

And I do believe I’ll be spending a lot of time in their 3-acre lazy river.

The resort boasts 12 restaurants, which include La Luce, a traditional Italian restaurant.

Muse, a coffee and pastry shop

Everything looks super swanky, even the rooms!

And you’ll be able to get some last minute work-outs in at the fitness center on property, which is not something you’ll find at Disney’s value and moderate resorts.

If you’re looking for a place to stay for the WDW Marathon, I think this is perfect! It’s right near everything in Disney World with all of the luxury of Disney’s deluxe resorts at an affordable price!

I’ve been itching to check out Bonnet Creek ever since I worked at Disney back in 2003-2006 while it was being built. I’m excited to stay here!

In an effort for full disclosure… Hilton is offering me a complimentary stay for the marathon weekend. However, all opinions expressed about the resort are my own.

    It looks lovely! Enjoy it!! 🙂 Do they do this for every Disney running event? The Princess 1/2 and Royal Family 5k are coming up soon. (Are you doing either of those this year?)

    What a great place to stay! I am counting down the days myself… I leave a week from Thursday 🙂

    […] We arrived in sunny, beautiful Orlando and were quickly bussed over to our resort, the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek! If you remember, I was asked to review the resort on the blog and was therefore given a complimentary stay! […]
