I Ran Disney's Princess Half-Marathon And It Was The Best Thing Ever

The happiest race on earth.

The Disney Princess Half Marathon was this past weekend.

Basically, Disney World hosts a set of princess-themed races (a 5k, 10k, and half marathon) over the course of 3 days. People dress up in all sorts of costumes to race through the park.

I myself ran the half marathon with my BFF, Sam, and got to see all the ridiculously awesome costumes that people made.

I made the Jessie costume, on the left, and Sam made her Rapunzel ensemble. (We are obviously v competitive runners since we stopped for this photo op...)

Here are the best costumes from this year's Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend:

1. The #princessmen who stole the show.

The guys said: "This was something that we started for fun last year that quickly turned into a source of positivity and humor for other runners in the race. A bunch of guys dressed as princesses (and two women as princes last year) running and having a good time brought smiles to a lot of people’s faces."

We love ya, #princessmen.

16. This unlikely union between Cruella from 101 Dalmatians and Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland.

They also made those tutus themselves. Major DIY bonus points.

21. Team Wonderland coming in hot.

IRL the group is pretty cool too. They said: "In real life we are an airline pilot, nurse, artist, toy photographer, security analyst, and an executive assistant."
