We all know that spending a day at Walt Disney World will get you some serious exercise. There’s mile after mile of walking from attraction to dining reservations and back to the attractions again. But, the fine thinkers at Walt Disney World knew that we’d want more exercise options during our visit. Their latest will have you lacing up your trainers and putting your best foot forward.
New Balance Running Trails at Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World has announced yet another fab way to keep your healthy lifestyle going when vacationing at its resort: the New Balance Running Trails. As the official running shoe of runDisney, the company has partnered with Disney World to create more than 16 miles of running/walking/jogging trails across the property. The trails are usable both day and night, so no matter what time of day you like to exercise, they’re open.
The trails are both woodland and paved so remember to wear sturdy shoes even if you’re taking a leisurely stroll. Another bonus? The running trails are free to use and perfect for training for your next runDisney Marathon!
Of course, there are rules to go along with the trails, such as staying on the designated paths and obeying the posted signs. But I can truly get into this new addition at Walt Disney World. The trails will be perfect for resort nights when the sun is setting and you don’t want to go back to your room but have had enough of the parks. Or I may head there early in the morning before the heat of the day sets in.
I,personally, can’t wait to check out the trail that begins at Grand Floridian Resort and loops through Polynesian Village Resort (feel free to grab a Dole Whip while you’re there–you will have earned it!) along Seven Seas Lagoon. There’s also a trail near Disney’s BoardWalk and Disney’s Beach and Yacht Clubs that looks lovely.
