Whether you’re a seasoned runner who could finish a race in glass slippers or a rookie with big dreams of a fairy tale finish, there’s a place — and a race — for you at the 2024 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by CORKCICLE. Returning to Walt Disney World Resort Feb. 22 – 26, 2024, join some of Disney’s most beloved Princesses and Queens for an unforgettable race weekend celebrating the ways we are all heroes, every day.
Being a hero is not just about the happily ever after at the end of the story. For our Princesses and Queens, it’s the courage to embark on the journey, jump out of the tower, open the restaurant, and find the fifth spirit. As a runner, it’s the sweat and determination that goes into each training run, the resilience to rise after every fall, and the unwavering commitment to reach our goals.
Today, we’re excited to reveal a first look at what will be awaiting runners at the finish line:
