For this year’s trip to Disney for my first experience with the Dopey Challenge I chose to stay off property to save some money. I also needed a place where my children and my parents would have a place to sleep. I wanted a place with a washer and dryer and full kitchen. WorldQuest Orlando Resort was perfect. We got a 3 bedroom suite, which was the size of a condo!
It had plenty of space for everyone. There was a dining room area, living room area, full kitchen, screened in porch, pull out sofa, washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms and all of that was available to us for just around $150 per night! You can’t beat it! They also have a nice pool area with a hot tub and Tiki Bar, light continental breakfast and a small workout area.
I was concerned about driving to the races because I have never done that before for a morning race. This was amazing. I was less than 10 minutes away from door to parking space. It was a direct route right to Epcot. On the day of the half and full there was a little bit of a detour because some of the roads to Epcot were closed due to the corrals being located there. However, the detour was super easy and I left with plenty of time and didn’t have traffic issues to worry about.
Here’s a video I made from our stay. For more information visit their website. I found the place from my friend Amanda Tinney. She stayed there once and I loved the place the minute I drove up to it. It’s in a very quiet area with nothing around, but it isn’t far from anything at all! I will plan on staying there again next year! If you ever want to hook up with me for other Disney races and you want to share a room there I would be more than happy to do so!
