Offsite hotels with transpo to WDW races? (Princess Half Marathon)

My "princess" DH is registered for Princess Half Marathon in 2014. This will be his third PHM, and in the past we stayed at the Swan so we had the onsite bus transportation to the race start. The rates are VERY steep this time, as are the rates at the other onsite properties. We could do a Value resort, but . . . we are traveling with DD and we hate being stuck in a double bed.

Does anyone know if any offsite hotels offer transportation to the race start? I know I could drive him to the start, but traffic looked horrendous last year when we were on the bus.

Well, I think I answered my own question by consulting the runDisney website, duh!

"No transportation will be provided for guests staying at a non-host resort even if it is on Walt Disney World property. Parking will be available at Epcot® ONLY for the 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon for the race and at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for the Expo."

Guess we will suck it up and stay at the Swan! But I told DH that next year he has to find a cheaper race!

I'm new to the world of rundisney...is there a list of host resorts anywhere online? I know I could call but wanted to see if it was online first. And do you know if there is transportation from downtown disney to the race? We are doing the 10k on Saturday. Thanks!

You'd probably need to take a cab if you weren't driving yourself from DTD.

That's what I thought. I'm trying to figure out if driving ourselves will really be a huge pain. We were thinking about using points to stay at the Hilton on property near DTD but the transportation situation may be enough to convince me to pay a little more.
