    My college besties and I are running the Princess Half in February 2023. Is there a way to get my race bib mailed to me? Or is pickup at the expo the only option?

    Hey there, Emily! I'm so glad you brought your great question to planDisney.

    Whether you're loyal, brave, and true like Mulan or looking for adventure in the great, wide somewhere like Belle, every mile will be magic when you're running alongside your best friends during the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend! I ran this race a few years ago with my husband and it's still one of my most magical memories.

    Emily, when looking at the Runner Info on the runDisney website, it states that participants must pick up their race bibs in person at least one day prior to their race. Unfortunately, this means that your race bib won't be able to be mailed to you. You'll have opportunities on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before the half marathon on Sunday to head to the Health & Fitness Expo, where you'll be able to pick up your race bib. Be sure that you have a valid form of ID with you! You'll also want to make sure that you've submitted your digital waiver before the event. 

    Also, make sure that you've fueled well before your race! Before you arrive, check out some dining locations that will fit your dietary needs. As much as I want to say that I ate a healthy chicken and rice dish from Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs, I actually enjoyed a burger and fries from D-Luxe Burger before my race! Just remember to follow the rule of "no new food" before race day and you should be good to go. Oh, and if you're a coffee drinker, you might have difficulty (like me!) finding a great cup of coffee before hopping on a bus at 2 AM and heading to the starting line. My best tip is to bring your favorite morning beverage back to your Disney Resort hotel room the night before the race. I love iced coffee, so I asked for one (without ice) to go. I popped it in the mini fridge in my room and was so grateful to sip my favorite drink before lacing up my sneakers the next morning!

    As you continue to put the finishing touches on your vacation plans, be sure to check out the runDisney Frequently Asked Questions page. I found this to be so helpful, myself! And if you have any other questions, please visit us again. After all – you've got a friend in me!
