REMIX: 5 Tips for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend (and other things I wish someone told me ahead of time)

The Disney Princess Half Marathon will always hold a special place in my heart. It was my first full half marathon (lol), and my first foray into runDisney! Little did I know this would set a fire in me that would inspire me to run hundreds, if not thousands, more miles. I ran in 2016, 2017, and 2019. This was also the subject of one of my first Will Run for Disney posts! Check out my remix version of 5 Tips for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend (and other things I wish someone had told me ahead of time). Enjoy!

I love runDisney races for so many reasons. If you’re here reading this, I’m sure you agree. Everything is super organized, well thought out, and has been prepared with the utmost care. As a former events planner, I can appreciate just how much time and labor goes into the herculean effort of organizing a race weekend. Particularly one in WDW where road closures, park openings, and special event times can be tricky. The run-of-show must be minute to minute, even second to second!
