rundisney princess 1/2 marathon

It was another early morning for me, this time 4:00 AM!  I had to get to the start of the RunDisney Princess 1/2 Marathon at 5:30 AM.  I did not want to miss the start of this race.  Our agency at Destinations in Florida Travel had about 300 runners in this race, so I wanted to be there in full cheer mode!  These runners worked hard to train for this 13.1 mile race that started at Epcot.  I wanted to be there ready to cheer!

The Princess 1/2 Marathon takes you go through Magic Kingdom, including Cinderella Castle (which makes for amazing pictures) and then through Epcot.  In Epcot you go through Future World and World Showcase.  You may make a few stops here and there with your favorite Disney Characters!  These are always a great break and fun pictures to remember the race.

It was an incredible day of cheering for some amazing runners.  Go Team Destinations in Florida!



I am not a morning person, but getting up at 5:00 AM to run the RunDisney Royal 5K with my daughter seemed like a great idea (at least when I signed up for it a month ago).  I am not a morning person!  However, the opportunity to dress up like Elsa and Anna from Frozen and run over 3 miles with my daughter, seemed like a great idea.  It certainly made my daughter happy and isn’t that what it is all about?

Needless to say, the Royal 5K was an amazing race to do with my daughter.  I was joined by some team from Destinations in Florida Travel, so it made the whole experience a lot more fun.  You walk or run the 5K race throughout Epcot’s Future World and then into World Showcase.  The ending is just as magical for all Princes & Princesses!  Every runner gets a medal for completing the race.  That was certainly the highlight for my daughter!

If you are looking for an event with your family, consider one of the RunDisney family events like the Royal 5K.  It was certainly fit for these two Frozen Princesses!
