Make Every Mile Magic in 2016 with New runDisney Merchandise

For runDisney fans, 2016 promises to be a magical and exciting year. To kick off this year, we’ve created a few runDisney-inspired products perfect for returning events like the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February or new events such as the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon Weekend in September.


Some of the most popular items at runDisney events are Dooney & Bourke handbags. This year, we are offering an online sale for three marathon-inspired handbags now through January 13, 2016. There will be a tote ($268), a backpack ($248) and a wristlet ($108) available for pre-order. Complimentary shipping is available on all pre-orders. Merchandise will then be shipped from the Walt Disney World Resort beginning March 31, 2016. To place an order, please visit this webpage.


Guests attending the upcoming Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend will find some new character apparel for both women and men at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo. Two of the designs were inspired by previous Disney Parks Blog articles from my fellow author Aubrey Hang – the Disgust shirt and the Anger shirt from Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out.” Look out for additional designs with Olaf from Disney’s “Frozen” and two shirts with characters from a galaxy far, far away.

Finally, we are releasing a runDisney logo collection for 2016 that includes apparel, home décor, vehicle magnets and more. Select items may already be found on our Disney Parks online store – DisneyStore.com/runDisney. Additional items will be found at runDisney Health & Fitness Expos during upcoming marathon events.


  • Are these Dooneys for the WDW Marathon race and there will be another for Princess?

    • @Debra – These Dooney & Bourke handbags were designed with the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in mind. I’ve not seen samples yet for the Princess Half Marathon. I’m sure, however, I’ll have a story about the items in a few weeks.

  • Will the Inside Out shirts be available online or just at the expo?

    • @Kate – They will be at the Health & Fitness Expo. I believe they will be released online at a future date.

  • Finally!! An official Tervis cup as well. Now to hope they don’t sell out before I can get to the expo 🙂

  • Are the cups actual Tervis brand this year? Last year my cup from Princess didn’t even make it home in the suitcase. Super disappointing.

    • @Tracy – There are some Tervis brand items being offered this year.

  • Love the new runDisney merch! I’m glad to see more not tied to a specific race, so I can wear it no matter what I’m training for. Question, will there be more of the general runDisney merch without the 2016 date? I hate getting merch tied to a specific year, it feels so dated once that year has gone by.

    • @Eric – There are a few options that don’t have a date. The red and white program, however, was created for the 2016 year. You can see some items on our Disney Parks online store – http://www.disneystore.com/rundisney/mn/1000855/

  • Thank goodness for official Tervis brand!! None of my previous “look a likes” have survived! (Can we request the powers that be to please sell them online too?)

    • @Erin – Thank you for the feedback. I’ll let the team know what you said.

  • these are super cute. Any ideas if the shirts will be available at the Princess Expo. I love the Inside Out shirts.

    • @Allison – Yes, you should see some of the character shirts at future runDisney Health & Fitness Expos. They should also appear online at a future date.

  • OHHH I love the inside out shirts and the tervis!!!! hopefully they wont sell out within an hour with people buy 20 at one time 🙂

  • HI Steven! Who should I contact about potential licensing for run disney?

    • @Heather – I’m unsure how to respond to your question. Are you looking to create merchandise for Disney Theme Park Merchandise?

  • Looks great! Hopefully they’ll be available at the Tinkerbell weekend in May. Any chance we might see some of these in other colors (say, pink)?

    • @Robyn – For now, the only colors being offered are shown above.

  • Are the WDW Marathon Dooney’s be at the expo? Or are they delayed and that’s why you have the website to order?

    • @Cheryl – This year, we decided to offer a pre-order option for Dooney & Bourke handbags. This was a result of feedback from guests at previous events. The bags shown above will not be at the Health & Fitness Expo.

  • Will the shoes be available online?

    • @Linda – I’m assuming you are referencing the New Balance shoes. If so, I don’t know of plans to carry them online.

  • is there a option to pick up bag at Expo? It sure would be nice to have for our race day:)

    • @Michelle – There is not an option this year to pick up the Dooney & Bourke handbags at the Expo. The handbags will be shipped to your home if ordered.

  • HI Steven! Are the Dooney bags canvas or leather?

    • @Ellen – They are leather.

  • Any info if there will be a 2016 RunDisney Vinylmation?

    • @Joe – Yes, there will be a 3-inch runDisney 2016 Vinylmation figure this year.

  • Where will the run disney merchandise be after the Marathon? Will we be able to purchase it at Disney Springs area?

  • Just FYI…went over to both marathon shops at the expo and the family decals were a no go. A couple helpful folks went to check but no one had seen those. Since I wasn’t running during this race I was pretty disappointed not to find them after making a special trip. Hoping they are put on the Disney store site.

  • Please, how can I get my hands on the 2016 navy blue women’s zip up hoodie that said “every mile’s magic”??? My daughter wanted to make sure she finished the race before she bought this jacket for herself. When we went back to the expo after competing out very first half marathon, there wasn’t even a small!!!!! It was such a huge accomplishment for her and I really would like to supervise her by finding one for her!!! I believe it was made by Champion???? You would make my/her day!!!

  • Dying to find out if there will be another Dooney release for the Princess Half Marathon weekend in February at WDW. I am running this event for the first time and was wondering if there is usually an online preorder with home shipment, or does one have to get in a virtual queue, and then stand in the line at the Expo? I am arriving on Thursday before the race and want to be certain to get one of these but don’t know the process. Thanks for any insights on how to handle this, if there is a new release for the Half.

  • I noticed the RunDisney Tervis is already sold out on disneystore (I knew I should’ve snagged it yesterday when they had free shipping on any order!). I’m running the Disney Princess 10K next month. Will the red RunDisney Tervis cup be available for purchase at the expo prior to that race? Thanks!

  • Hello,
    I just found out about the Dooney & Bourke handbags, so I missed the pre-sale deadline. What other options do I have if any?
    Thank you.

  • Hi..how do I go about ordering the Dooney & Burke handbag for the Disney Princess half Marathon? Thanks…

  • Hi..this year i competed in my very first walt disney 5k and 10k race. I really wanted to buy some 5k and 10k merchandise at the expo but didnt want to tempt fate and buy it until i had actually completed the races. I was wondering if there is anywhere else i could purchase them either now or sometime in the future.
    I unfortuantley wont be racing again til next year so dont want to have to wait that long !!
    Many thanks in advance.

  • I did the same as some other posters and didn’t buy the “I Did It!” shirt at the expo because I didn’t want to jinx myself. I couldn’t find one after the race – are they still available anywhere else? This was my first RunDisney event and my first half!
