    I registered for a Disneyland RunDisney event for 2024. I see I can pre-order merch but it has no picture yet. When will the photos be released? How much time after the images are released can you order the merch? Do the pre-orders sell out quickly?

    Hi there, Samantha!

    Welcome to planDisney, fellow runner! A huge congratulations on registering for the upcoming Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, getting a spot is a victory all its own! I will be running that weekend as well, so I definitely share your excitement in all the planning...and the merchandise is a huge part of the race experience!

    I totally understand wanting to preorder your favorite runDisney gear for the race weekend, especially for popular products that often sell out! So far, images of the preorder items aren't available. That's likely because we still have so long to wait (and train!) before our races! I'm hopeful that photos of the products will be available later this year, but we just don't know for sure. I would recommend logging in once in a while to check, but also keep an eye on the runDisney Blog and the runDisney Instagram account to see if they start posting previews!

    As a bit of a reference point, the runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend (which takes place in April this year) had photos of the preorder merchandise several months ago, and items are still available for purchase. So that's hopeful! I am totally in love with the logo for the Disneyland race weekend, so preordering some things is high on my list. I'll be checking the website and hoping for pixie-dusted photos right along with you! Since this is the "first time in forever" that a race is being held at Disneyland, I wouldn't wait long to purchase once you know what you want. There's no information currently available about when preorders will be closed.

    It also never hurts to reach out to runDisney directly on their Contact Us page! There's also a phone number there that I recommend using if you have questions about hotel options for runners—I personally love the Disneyland Hotel.

    Whether this is your first runDisney race or you're a magical mile professional, I hope you will enjoy planning and preparing for your run! If you have other questions you can send me a note here and I'll lace up my running shoes and be over to help you as quickly as I can. Happy shopping, Samantha!

    Keep moving (and running) forward!
