Disney's Princess Half Marathon
More than 13,000 princesses (including 400 princes) took to the streets of Walt Disney World Resort on Sunday morning all in the name of Disney’s Princess Half Marathon. The 13.1-mile race started in true Disney fashion with fireworks lighting up the sky and Fairy Godmother wishing all well on their journey. Many runners came dressed in their princess best. Here are some of our favorite photos from the event.
