    My husband and I are running our first marathon Jan 2017. After the race, what can we expect? Are there any special activities we should plan for?

    Hi Alana!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Congratulations on the leap into the marathon distance!  My husband and I ran the 2013 Walt Disney World Marathon as our first and it was a very special experience.

    My perfect plan after a marathon looks like this;  I like to plan a late brunch, followed by a long nap and then do something fun that evening. Sometimes we celebrate with a meal at 'Ohana or Narcoossee's.  Those are two of our favorite restaurants on property.

    Typically, there is a "Cool Down Party" at Disney Springs.  Last year, the party was from 2:00 - 8:00 p.m., and included some fun vendors and runner discounts.  Details for the 2017 weekend are still being finalized.  You will be able to find them on the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend website soon.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
