This was a bucket list run for me & I’m glad I did it but don’t plan on doing any other Disney races. I did the challenge so ran the 10k with my daughter & half with my best friend.
1. Expo – very well organized. There were characters you could take photos with, the race shirts were cute (not my favorite fabric but like the design). Not a lot of samples being handed out & the only thing you received was the shirts. We were there the morning of the second day & they were already sold out of a shirt that I wanted so I was bummed about that (but it saved me from spending $80). We also had to drive to Disney Springs to purchase holiday ornaments that they had on display but weren’t selling at the expo.
2. Pre-race – we were told to arrive by 4am & there was some entertainment (photo ops with characters, music, etc) before the race. We didn’t actually start either race until around 6am so it was a lot of standing around. Because my daughter & friend hadn’t participated in other races at their distance we were in the last corral for both races which meant a lot of standing around before you even get started which is pretty stressful. I don’t know what would be better but it seems silly to have “slower” runners start in the back because they have less time to finish than the “faster” runners in the front. The balloon ladies started right behind my daughter & I.
3. Course – the courses themselves were less exciting than I had envisioned. The 10k was more enjoyable than the half marathon. The 10k was about half on the highway & then you entered through the back of Hollywood Studios ran through the Boardwalk area & then to Epcot & through Canada to the front & the finish. The half was 5 hours of highway to begin with, a short loop through Magic Kingdom, then back to Epcot for a very short run through the park to the finish. The course maps were available ahead of time I think I just thought there would be more running in the park. There were real bathrooms in all of the parks which was nice. There were lots of characters on the course but the lines were really long & we didn’t want to stop for too long. Entertainment was good with a few DJ’s, music, comedians, etc. plenty of water & Powerade stops. Only one stop had nutrition & it was some gummies. Any of the course not on the highway was crowded. There were points where you could really only walk because everyone in front of you was. It was well organized- just a lot of people (obviously since I
4. Post race – loved the medals, good snacks provided & loved the medals.

Overall it was a fun time & I’m glad I did it with my family/friends but will not rush to sign up

Amazing expo with great free stuff & items to buy – I spent way too much $! Great shirts for participants that I look forward to wearing! The races themselves were extremely well organized. The after parties & post race food were also awesome! Great crowd support, scenic course. It rained on Sunday during the half but the volunteers were still out in force & so encouraging! I’m so glad I did this race – it was so fun – definitely recommend!!

Amazingly beautiful race course running alongside the river with gorgeous views the entire time made up for the steep climb for the entire first half. Good aid stations & easy to get to & park because it was a smaller race. There was no expo & the shirts cost extra which was a bummer. The food afterwards was delicious (an actual taco 🌮 bar) & we walked to a brewery nearby. Really fun, low key, gorgeous race!
