Hear ye hear ye, calling all runDisney princesses. You’re trading in your glass slippers for running shoes! Whether you are running the enchanted 10K or looking for the fairy tale finish by running the fairy 19.3 miles challenge, there is only ONE place you should all place your crowns to rest.
The Hilton Bonnet Creek holds special weekends and special prices for runners and their families. And when I say special…I mean SPECIAL!!!! Hilton Bonnet Creek ALWAYS goes all out for their runDisney runners. Upon check-in, you can go over to the concierge because runners get their own, and get all your questions answered and get a little welcome bag too!
The resort will take you AND from the race so you don’t have to worry about parking. Just sign up and you’re good. Another unique thing that Bonnet Creek does is that they wake up BEFORE you do to cheer for you as you come down to get on the bus!!!! If you have done a runDisney race before, you know how early you have to be there. So just imagine how early they have to wake up….but there is no lack of energy, I promise!
And just behind this cheerful cheer squad, is tables and tables of pre-run food, coffee, tea, oatmeal, snacks, bananas, protein bars, I could just go on. Like I said above…Hilton Bonnet Creek goes all out. They love their guests and their runners. They make sure they are happy and comfortable. Why do you think I keep going back, and I LIVE here in Orlando?!?!
But that’s not all, after you run your races(s) it’s time to relax, eat, and drink! They have a 3 acre pool with a lazy river and a slide. They also have a spa(which I’ve yet to check out) OH! They have the award-winning restaurant La Luce which is so amazing! It’s a must! They have 12 places to eat and I’ve eaten at almost all of them. They offer carb-load options too. 😉 And while you relax at the pool you can eat and drink while you enjoy the rays of the sun.
And guess what???? You also get a late check out! Yay! You get to take advantage of a special PRICE and you get to check out at 2p.m.! I think that is a pretty sweet deal. I have stayed here for other runDisney races in the past and for other of their cool events just because their place is too amazing to not spend a weekend. They have buses that will take you to the Disney parks as well.
