2023 WDW Marathon Weekend Bucket List

The 2023 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend officially begins tomorrow!  It seems like forever ago since we had to sign up for race weekend back in April.  You may recall that registration was a disaster... it was like we had to use dial up in order to get onto the website.  Appropriate for the 90's theme of race weekend... but not so fun in execution.  Thankfully, that's behind us now and we're all excited about race weekend!

I'm only signed up for one in person event, but Eliot and his sister Sara are signed up for all four.    Eliot's Dad Rick is doing the half, and his Mom Nori is signed up for the 10K and half.  I'm just doing the 10K in person.  Although, I did commit to doing the virtual marathon in my own challenge of walking at least 26.2 miles during our trip!

Now that the weekend is quickly approaching... I thought that I'd make a few more goals in the form of a short race weekend bucket list.  So let's take a peek!

These goals seem pretty attainable.  It's going to be a busy weekend with four early mornings in a row... so I didn't want to go overboard trying to achieve too much.

I can't wait to see what's in store!  Eliot and I are really excited about the 90's theme to race weekend due to it being the 30th anniversary of the marathon.  I hope that means we'll see tons of 90's themed characters from my childhood- Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, Power Line Max.  It's going to be so exciting!!!  °o°
