I’m writing this 38,000 feet up in the air en route to Walt Disney World for a much needed break from the cold weather of the Northeast. Most of my trips are very hectic with meets, activities and meals planned from dawn until the wee hours of the night. This will be the first trip that I will actually be taking time to relax and enjoy some down time with my husband and our amazing friends. There will be mass amounts of food and vino consumed. It could get ugly…you may not want to watch. But you know you’ll want too.
I’m also hoping to get a few runs in while I’m down there. Due to my usual busy schedule on other trips, this has been completely out of the question, so I’m planning on taking full advantage this trip. We’re staying at the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge, which has probably the best running trail on all of WDW property. A beautifully wooded trail winding through the Florida “wilderness” takes you past Bay Lake and over to the Fort Wilderness campground. From maps I’ve seen, the distance should be about 2.5 miles round trip. Perfect for a good morning run before heading to the parks!
I’m also hoping to check out a few other running trails while I’m down there. Possibly the one running along the Sassagoula River past the Port Orleans resorts, or Crescent Lake and down to the Studios. Wherever I make it to, be sure to check back for reviews of the trails when I get back.
Make sure to follow me on Twitter at both @RunningAtDisney and @Duchess_99 while I’m in WDW for updates on the resort and many, many photos!
