One of my BEST experiences at Disney — hands-down — was participating in the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend with my friend Todd P. a couple of years ago!
I bought a shirt to commemorate my accomplishment, and I still wear it all the time!
Well, the half returns again this year — The Walt Disney World Resort will host this event November 8-9, 2013, as part of the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. And those running in the race can get their own swag to celebrate…
Disney World Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend Merch
Whether you’re shopping for apparel, pins, home goods, or other souvenirs, many of the items will feature artwork designed by Paolo Gutierrez, a Disney Design Group artist. Paolo explains “…I purposely designed the logo to resemble a bottle label.”
I LOVE this “I Did It” T-shirt with a stylized course map! Make sure everyone knows what a big deal you are!!
Participants can choose from T-shirts, long-sleeved apparel, and a navy colored polo shirt. There will also be an assortment of women’s shirts, including agray “I Did It” shirt, peacock and black short sleeve shirts, a pink 1/4 zip pullover, and a white fleece.
If you are a pin collector, Disney pins will commemorate the event or choose a mini-medal for the runDisney Vinylmation figure. Don’t forget to pick up a wine glass, car magnet, window decal, and/or Sweaty Band.
Plan to shop at Disney’s Health & Fitness Expo at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex! Expo hours are November 8, 10AM to 7PM and November 9, 9AM to 3PM.
And, of course, don’t forget that the best piece of swag is that medal you get at the end! Wear it with pride at the parks the next day!!!
