The 2016 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend returns to Florida from January 6-10. I recently caught up with the product development team at Disney Theme Park Merchandise who gave me a first look at commemorative merchandise. This is the biggest runDisney event of the year, so here is a sampling of what guests may find during the upcoming weekend.
This year will see the return of products celebrating the entire Marathon Weekend. These items include apparel, hats and drinkware. I particularly like the new Mickey Mouse tees in pink and blue.
For each race, we will have apparel for both women and men including short and long sleeved shirts, Sweaty Bands, Bondi Bands, and vehicle magnets.
Guests will also find “I Did It!” shirts designed for both women and men (including the 5K and 10K races). Select races will also have running pants and running shorts included in the mix.
Finally, we will have a Disney ear hat and a fun “Future Disney Runner” shirt with Mickey Mouse for kids.
I could only show a handful of items in this article. There is so much more to see including jackets, hooded sweatshirts, pins and other runDisney logo products.
Guests attending the 2016 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend will find these items at Disney’s Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The Expo will be open during the following times:
- Wednesday, January 6 – 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
- Thursday, January 7 – 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
