As we continue to look at ways you can maintain your healthy active lifestyle while on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, you’re going to want to make sure you pack your running/walking shoes and experience the New Balance Running Trails.

Working with New Balance, a leader in fitness footwear and apparel, and the official running shoe of runDisney, Disney has created and identified more than 16 miles of running/walking trails winding throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Whether you want a leisurely walk, or need to get in a pace or tempo run, New Balance Running Trails are open and ready for you, day or night.

Some of the more popular trails include a run along Seven Seas Lagoon, through tree-lined trails of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and around Disney’s BoardWalk at the Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Click here for more information and maps of the New Balance Fitness Trails, or visit the front desk at your Walt Disney World Resort.

Here is a chance to see and hear about the trails as you prepare for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.


  • We enjoy running a figure 8 at Art of Animation and Pop Century! The theming is so amazing! You can get a quick shakeout run in right from your resort door!

  • Carly Stenger, when I stay at the All Star Sports I run 3 miles. If you leave the hotel and run down to the McDonalds, then back past the hotel to the end of the road and back its three miles. The staff said there’s a trail,around the lake, which I never found, that’s 1/4 mile.

  • I’m really surprised to see that it’s all New Balance sponsored still even with the new Nike member on the Disney Board.

  • Is there anywhere that has a map where these trails are actually marked out? Some are easy to see in the map on the resort website (like the ones around lakes) but I’m staying at an All Star in May and they say they have a trail that goes around the resorts but I really can’t see a trail that does in fact do that.

  • I love running Fort Wilderness. Starting in the front I go left on Peacock Pass, right on Big Pine Trail and connect to the Wilderness Lodge. After that, turn around and hit the same thing coming back. It’s 10K! You can definitely add more by running the individual loops or down Fort Wilderness Trail (the middle of the campground). It’s low traffic, shaded and perfect for a run!

  • Thanks for this! Making sure to pack my running shoes for our trip next week. Gotta earn myself an extra Mickey Bar.
