The 2020 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend has begun at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex! Runners from around the world have gathered to test their dedication and endurance at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
Disney pulls out all the stops for this event, with discounts, food, merchandise, and a lot more. We’re breaking it all down to guide you through, so you can focus on the run!
While today is the first day of the Princess Half Marathon Weekend, the racing hasn’t started yet! You still have time to grab your bib, browse the expo, and enjoy some great perks for runners at the Wide World of Sports complex.
The runDisney Expo is the hub for the event, and you’ll need to stop by before your race to grab your bib! While you’re there, feel free to browse a selection of marathon exclusive merchandise, or to visit booths teaching guests about the importance of health and fitness.
The Expo hours are:
- February 20th: 10 AM – 8 PM
- February 21st: 10 AM – 7 PM
- February 22nd: 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM.
As always, buses connecting the Expo to Disney Springs begin operating 30 minutes after the Expo opens, departing every half hour until close. If you need to get somewhere faster and don’t have your own vehicle, you can also call a Minnie Van via the Lyft app.
Of course, you’re not here for merch! …Well, not just here for merch. You’re here to run!
