Jogging Path AKL

Good Morning,

I'll be in WDW one week from today for a 6 night stay at AKL. Does anyone know if there is a jogging path at that resort?

Thanks

Yes, but only if you only want to go a very short distance. Like, 1/2 a mile. There's no official running path, just the path that connects Kidani with Jambo. I managed to put together 3+ miles on a recent trip (full report on that here), but it wasn't pretty, lol!

Thank you for this! It looks like I'll have to do a similar route.

Another thought is to combine some outdoor running with the treadmills in Kidani's and Jambo's fitness centers... or run the road out of AKL/AVKV, but WDW frowns on running in the roadways.

That's what I thought, so I was really surprised a couple years ago when we checked in to BC and they suggested the main roads for DH when he was looking for a running route. So every morning, as he ran out to the main road, he'd wave at the Disney security guard at the guard shack. Not what I was expecting!
