No matter when you decide to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth, there is most likely some special event happening. Disney always seems to be hosting something — whether it is the incredibly popular Food and Wine Festival or the Festival of the Arts — there is always something happening. And now Disney is having its 50th Anniversary celebration, on top of its normal events, so there is even more!
Some of the most popular events are Disney Marathon weekends. Every year, Disney hosts several marathon weekends — including the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, the Princess Marathon, and the incredibly beloved Disney World Marathon weekend. The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend draws thousands of people to the Florida theme parks and always happens at the beginning of January.
The 2022 Marathon Weekend is less than two weeks away, and runDisney has given us a sneak peek at some of the amazing merchandise that will be available for sale. During each marathon weekend, Disney hosts a Health and Fitness Expo that begins the day before the marathon starts and will run through the entire weekend. The expo features a ton of great vendors that sell all types of gear for runners, and Disney releases a bunch of great merchandise themed to that weekend. They even have merchandise themed to each individual race.
Let’s take a look at some of the merchandise runDisney has revealed!
First, let’s start with easily the most popular merchandise of the expo — the shirts. Disney does not just release one kind of shirt, they release tee-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, tank tops, and now spirit jerseys! You can also get one specific to the race that you ran.
In addition to all the great shirts, there is other merchandise that will be for sale, like hats, mugs, and keychains.
Remember, this is a look at just some of the merchandise coming to the Marathon Weekend. In the past, Disney has also released things like glasses and special Dooney and Bourke purses for the event. Here are the dates and hours for the 2022 Health & Fitness Expo that will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex:
