Guests will join Disney Princesses for a “dream come true” weekend of majestic runs when the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals returns to Walt Disney World Resort from February 23-26, 2017. Today, I have a first look commemorative merchandise created especially for this annual runDisney event.

Runners participating in the Disney Princess Half Marathon will find apparel including short and long-sleeved shirts, jackets, tank tops, and running shorts. This year, elements from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” will be seen throughout the weekend through entertainment, race medals, and on select products (the roses found on race apparel is a nice nod to the Disney animated classic).

Similar products were also created for guests running the 19.3-mile Disney Glass Slipper Challenge. You’ll find a race jacket, a tank top, logo shirts and running pants.

Look for apparel and accessories for other races being held during the weekend including the Disney Princess 5K, Disney Princess Enchanted 10K, and runDisney Kids Races.

Other products include drinkware, a new commemorative shoe ornament inspired by the race weekend, and three Disney Princess-inspired handbags by Dooney & Bourke (a specially designed leather hangtag will be found on select silhouettes).


Finally, guests will find car magnets, Bondi Bands, and Sweaty Bands. The limited release Disney pins will include pins shaped like miniature replicas of the “Beauty and the Beast”-inspired race medals.

  • Steve,
    Thanks for sharing the race merchandise.
    How much will be for the posted Disney Dooney Princess styles?


    • @Deric – Please see Melissa’s question below.

  • Speaking of merchandise, when are you guys going to update the Disney Parks Merchandise site? It’s almost the end of the Month and I don’t know about any pins.

    • @Greg – I saw your comment on the recent Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video and have responded. I was away on holiday for a few days.

  • Thank you! Could you tell me how much magnets will be as well as how much the “I did it” shirts are?

    • @Meghan – The magnets are $9.99 each, and the “I Did It” tees are $32.99 each. Please note all retails are subject to change without notice.

  • Based on my experience with previous runDisney events, the shirts run $30-$40, hoodies $60-$80. Pins are $15. If you are an AP, you can use your discount for this merch.

  • Just wanted to double check. Preordered my Dooney and Bourke and paid in advance. Where do I pick that up…at the dooney and bourke location or the preordered area next to it on the second level? I’m doing race retreat so i’ll be able to get in there early to pick up stuff.

  • Are the featured t-shirts at the very top of the page the ones that will come with registration?

    Thank you!

    • @Katie – From my understanding, the shirts in the image are retail items. I don’t recall seeing the registration shirts.

  • Hello, Love the designs. Is the performance jacket that was available for preorder pictured in this post? Also is the preorder runner bundle the same ornament and tumbler shown in this post? Thank you!

    • @Christina – The pre-sell jacket is not shown in this article. The sneaker ornament is the pre-sell bundle ornament but The TERVIS shown is not the pre-sell item.

  • The merch gets better and better for each race! Love these designs 🙂

    • @Sarah – Thank you for the comment. I’ll share your thoughts with the merchandising and art teams.

  • Are there three different types of wine glasses ? Or is one of those plastic ? Any idea on pricing on those ?

    • @Yadira – There is a TERVIS wine goblet along with a Hurricane glass and another wine glass. I will need to check with the events team regarding pricing.

  • Any chance you might know how much the blue jacket will be? Thanks so much for the sneak peek!!!

  • Will any of this be available online? By the time I get to the expo, it’s sold out.

  • These items are only available for purchase at the Expo , correct?

    • @Karina – These items will be released at the Expo.

  • Can Dooney bags still be pre-ordered?

    • @Ali – Unfortunately, the Dooney & Bourke handbags are not available for pre-order.

  • Will any of these items be available at the parks or resorts?

  • Are there limits on the amount of an item you purchase? I saw someone with about 50 ornaments in her basket and was wondering if that is allowed or fair.

  • Agreed about limits on quantity to purchase. Or at least only allow bib holders first 2 days. The merchandise is soooo darn cute that I understand why the eBay sells buy it all up! Even an option to buy online is great. We just want a chance to spend our pennies too. 🙂 You guys did another fantasic job from what I can tell from the pictures, heading to the expo now!!

  • I’m at Disneyland all the time. Will any of this be available there? Or online anywhere? No way for me to get to Florida and I would love to own a lot of the Beauty and the Beast merchandise!

  • Hi Steven,

    love your posts.
    Do you know if and when a 2017 Epcot Flower and Garden magic band may be offered?
    we will be there again in May for the event.
    thank you,

  • Sizing for pre-order jackets is very inaccurate. To be told we could not return something the that doesn’t fit was a huge disappointment for this first-timer.

  • I tried to purchase the 5k race shirt with the map on the back and every time I went to the expo they were sold out. Does anyone know if Disney sells them online after the races or at another place?

  • Can I still purchase the Disney princess running ornament?

  • Also wondering if I can still purchase Race Weekend merchandise. Someone stole my half marathon magnet off of my car…

  • Hi! I signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge but only ended up buying 10k as I was gonna chicken out of the 1/2. Well I gave it a go and FINISHED. Now I regret not getting the 1/2 pin and the Glass slipper shirt and 1/2 shirt. Will they be available anywhere? 🙁

  • New Balance had a Women’s Crew Sweatshirt for the Princess Half, I didn’t purchase at the expo but I wanted to know if there was any I could try to find and purchase

  • Where can I buy the 2017 Princess sneaker ornament for my daughter who ran the half marathon?

  • My sister and I plan on doing the 2018 race. Started training already ne are planning our travel, etc. I know registration opens 05/02/17 for next year’s Princess race weekend. When do preorders start and typically how much do the pre-sell commemorative items cost? Particularly the 5K Bundle and race weekend jacket? Thanks!!!
