I know, it’s almost time for RunDisney’s Princess Half Marathon, but I couldn’t just not talk about one of the best running expo’s I have been to.
First off, I had been doing research about it, because I have done the Wine & Dine half so I was worried because Disneyland doesn’t have a Sports Complex, so where would they hold it!?! From my research of other bloggers, I started to get really worried because everyone was writing about how long the wait was to get in. They said to get there HOURS before the expo even opened, I didn’t want to wait in hours to get my bib and who really does.
We were in for a great surprise when they opened the expo a day early, and let me tell you the crowds were easy compared to what I had mental built up in my mind. Many people were upset because A LOT of the special Tinkerbell expo only products were sold out by the time Friday’s expo. We got there 30 mins after it opened on Friday and it was steady, but it slowly got packed.
The major downfall was figuring out the New Balance shoe situation. It turns out you had to sign up for a time to come back and get in line to buy the shoes. We went to 3 different areas to figure out where sign up was, once we signed up it was a 5 HOUR wait. Thankfully we were staying on property so we just walked over from the hotel when we close to our time. Another downfall was that anyone could get walk into the expo since it was right in the Disneyland Hotel and they weren’t checking if you were part of the race or not.
Here are the medals!
Excited to get the Pink Coast to Coast medal, and I really wish that I would have signed up for the 10K / Glass Slipper. I also got to meet Jeff Galloway! I was so excited, the line was short but people are talkers with him and he fully enjoys the conversation back
Overall, I was very happy and had a blast. I am really looking forward to the Princess Expo and I am glad that we don’t have to wait for the shoes because it was be very boring to wait at the Wide World of Sport Complex of 5 hours
When you hit up the Princess expo make sure that you stop by the Luna booth, they have the most amazing signs! #LunaCheers I got the We Don’t Sweat We Sparkle sign, that I am going to frame and put over my medal rack (when I get it) what a GREAT idea!
What are you looking forward to at the Princess Half Marathon?
