If you’ve been to a runDisney race before, you know that the Expo is almost as much fun as the races themselves. Almost! Filled to the brim with the most innovative running and fitness gear on the planet, much with a Disney spin. Where else can you get funky fab sneakers, a new running wardrobe, tutus, tiaras, sunglasses, high-tech gadgets, Body Glide, Spi-Belts, glow rings, gym bags, medal racks, protein bars and more? Nowhere – that’s where! Besides the out-of-this-world shopping experience, you can do tons of other fun things at the Expo like:
- Packet pick-up
- Listen to lectures on running, nutrition or fitness
- Get photos with Disney characters
- Get Bippity-Boppity-Boo’d (glittered by the Fairy Godmothers)
- Make signs to cheer on your favorite runners
The Expo is a must for anyone and everyone involved with the Half Marathon, Royal Family 5K or kids races. It’s normally at the Wide World of Sports, but has been moved to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This massive conference center is a perfect alternative as it’s enormous and comes will all the other luxuries you expect from a Disney experience. I’ll be there (spending far too much), and I hope to see you too.
Also, if you’re in the Orlando area between February 22 -24th, but don’t have ANYTHING to do with these particular races, come anyway! The shopping is incredible. If you love to run or just love fitness, you’re sure to find things you won’t find anywhere else at this Expo.
