Read my full Walt Disney World Half Marathon Race Report!

Three days. Three races. Three costumes. Two theme parks. And lots of fun.

I ran the Disney Family Fun Run 5K, Walt Disney World 10K and Walt Disney World Half Marathon at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend as a guest of runDiseny. My full race reports are still to come!

But here are the pics I snagged while dressed as Cinderella, in the dress the mice made for her, at the Walt Disney World Half Marathon on Saturday, January 11.

Hope everyone who ran this weekend had great races!

    Awesome pics! Your pink Cinderella costume is quite possibly one of my favorite racing costumes I’ve ever seen. I wish I was crafty so I could make something like that!

    I LOVE your poses! You are an expert at princess poses!

    Your costumes are always so on-point. I’m trying to decide on my costume for the princess half right now. I think I’m going to go with a 101 Dalmatians theme :)

    The photos turned out well. Would have been hard with the dim light. I think the 3am alarm is where it all started to go wrong for your 10k race 😉

      I started in the back of corral A, which helped with the photos. Most of those peeps aren’t stopping for pics. I did have to wait a while for Donald, Cinderella and Goofy and passed up a few others with long lines. But mostly it wasn’t bad at all.

    I LOVE IT. If only I could recruit mice to make my costumes for me… That Cinderella was really on to something.
