Characters You May Run Into: Walt Disney World Half Marathon

Sharing is caring!

Here’s a rundown of characters found on the Walt Disney World Half Marathon course in 2014.

Based on your speed and your corral placement, you may or may not have had the same experiences.  I pulled this list together from various blogs and information on the internet.

It’s important to note: these characters may change year to year!  As a veteran Princess Half runner I can attest that *most* of the characters and groupings remain the same.  Buzz is always in Tomorrowland and Woody over in Frontierland for example. 

Don’t get upset if your favorite on this list doesn’t show up at your race- I’m sure someone just as magical will be in their place.

ETA: if you are looking for marathon characters, here you go!
