ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 18, 2016) - Located just one mile from Orlando's Walt Disney World, The Courtyard Orlando Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre is within walking distance of the iconic Disney theme park. RunDisney's seasoned participants will remember that a stay in Courtyard's Lake Buena Vista hotel suites will put them more accurately within running distance from the events.

A whimsical departure from the typical cityscapes or neighborhood scenery that runners are accustomed to, runDisney is a schedule of events throughout the year that allow runners the special opportunity to run through Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

This April 14-17, runDisney will be hosting the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend -- The Dark Side. With Storm Troopers adorned in their imposing all-white gear following with every stride, runners will feel like Luke and Han escaping an Imperial Star Ship. Fortunately, no valuable energy will be wasted with a stay at the Courtyard Orlando Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre, just minutes from the marathon's starting point.

As a welcoming gesture to Disney runners throughout the runDisney marathon season, this Lake Buena Vista hotel is proud to offer runners and their families discounted room rates and easy access to transportation to and from these runDisney events.

The Courtyard's marathon transportation discounts are available for all racing events throughout the marathon season, including the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, November 4-5, 2016. In addition to an array of inclusive races, the weekend concludes with an exclusive Finish Line Party at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

The runDisney event schedule continues with the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend on January 4-8, 2017, features a capstone race that guides runners along a 26.2 mile course which meanders through Walt Disney World Theme Parks -- starting at Epcot, continuing to the Magic Kingdom, turning to Disney's Animal Kingdom, and finishing back at Epcot. Wrapping up the current runDisney marathon schedule will be the fantastical Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend, encouraging girls and women of all ages to join the royal races. The 13.1 mile course is filled with magical surprises and the weekend is filled with special Princess events, all to benefit the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals on February 24-26, 2017.
