Disney World Cast Members have a way of making every single guest feel special when they enter the parks.
But extra magic was waiting for one man who ran all the way from Disneyland to Disney World. Yes! HE RAN! And he’s the first person who’s ever done that.
Don Muchow, who is a self-professed Disney fan (along with his wife), decided to use his ultrarunner and Ironman training to run 2,761 miles from Disneyland in California to Disney World in Florida. He began his record-breaking feat in February, logging more than 30 miles per day. How’s that for impressive?
When the 59-year-old arrived at Magic Kingdom, he was greeted by Cast Members who were applauding and cheering him on. And he celebrated by having a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar and a ride on “it’s a small world” which is his favorite attraction.
Don’s mission? To raise awareness for Type 1 Diabetes, which he also has. He hopes his endeavor will inspire and empower other diabetics. Mission accomplished!
