5 Reasons to Stay with Destination Marathons When Running Disney
Updated: Jul 21
Reason #1: MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Why settle for a small, standard hotel room when you can upgrade to an island cottage at the Margaritaville Resort with a private room and bath for the same price, if not less? With extra living space to move around, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and patio space (some with a private pool), you can’t go wrong! But if you still prefer a private hotel room, we have options for you too😉.
Reason #2: TRANSPORTATION
Worried about how you’ll get to the Expo and start?How about back to the hotel? We'll handle it all for you! Travel in style with Mears Transportation, the race-day shuttle providers for Disney hotels.
Reason #3: PRIVATE FINISH LINE TENT
Who wants to get drenched by rain or shiver from the cold while waiting for the start of the race? Or bake in the heat of the sun after your long run? DM partnered with the non-profit Dragon Master Foundation to offer a private tent right at the finish line! Get out of the elements, replenish your tired body with drinks and snacks, and grab your gear. We even
have a private changing station ready for you! Enjoy a free post-race massage and let us celebrate with you (which means plenty of pics, of course)!
Reason #4: STRESS LESS
A great race is all about the details, and we’ve got them covered! No more worrying about finding the best place for your pre-race dinner –
we’ve got your seat reserved! Stressing over needed last minute bandaids, safety pins, or medicine before your race? Our emergency bag has you covered! Overwhelmed with navigating park tickets, dining, and behind-the-scene tour options? Let our Disney Travel Specialist help you! Plus, DM hosts will be on-site to ensure your race vacation experience goes smoothly.
Reason #5: HAVE FUN
As a guest at the Margaritaville Resort, you’ll enjoy the pool, kids’ club, spa, fire pit, live music, on-site restaurants, brand-new Sunset Walk Entertainment District, and more. They offer transportation to Disney World, Universal, and Sea World. Kids can play at Island H2O Live waterpark next door, and adults can enjoy the neighboring Island Grove Winery.
So why Destination Marathons?
Because we do everything but run for you!
