    This is Tracie. I am participating in the 2023 Fairytale Challenge. It the past we have had an opportunity to pre-purchase items for the in person runs. Will we have that opportunity again?

    Hiya Tracie - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping in with a question for our team of panelists. We love helping Guests just like you plan for magical Walt Disney World Resort experiences!

    Like you, I love runDisney races! There sure is something special about running through the Theme Parks before (or after!) they open and even getting to see some backstage areas! My last race was the 2022 Springtime Surprise Weekend - it was fantastic! You're certainly planning on getting a lot of magical miles in with the Disney Fairy Tale Challenge during the 2023 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend.

    I know the ability to pre-order runDisney merchandise in advance of the events was a popular option, but as a runner myself, I haven't seen it available so far this year. This could always change, and I recommend keeping an eye on the runDisney blog as well as any email communications you may receive. Otherwise, the best option is to plan your travel arrangements ahead of time such that you'll be able to get to the Expo as early as possible on the first day to have the best selection. One nice perk I noticed at the Expo this Spring was the option to use Merchandise Mobile Checkout in the My Disney Experience Mobile App. I did have to shop for my items in person, but didn't have to wait in line to make my purchase!

    You may also want to contact runDisney directly with your specific question. They may not have any news to share at this time, but you could check in again closer to the race if they can't provide a definitive answer.

    I wish I had better news for you, but still hope this information has been helpful. I wish you the best of luck on your races, and please stop by again with any additional questions!
