Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend at DISNEYLAND!!!

Just a few weeks ago I traveled to the Disneyland Resort to participate in the 2015 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend...  I traveled with my friend Merritt - you will see her in lots of the pictures... This was my 3rd Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend!  (and my 17th Half Marathon!!!)

At the Race EXPO with our Pixie Dust Challenge Bibs!

We flew down VERY early Thursday morning from Seattle... arrived at the Best Western Stovalls and thy greeted us AND had our room ready and waiting!  I had stayed at the Stovalls twice before so I knew what a great place it was and it did not disappoint!  We had a pretty good view of California Adventure from our room and the pool area (which has been recently redone and is gorgeous!)  We dumped our stuff in our room and rushed off to the EXPO!  We spent most of the day browsing the EXPO, shopping for merchandise and picking up our New Balance shoes!

I picked up the new Tinker Bell shoes (the wings were purchased separately from WDW) and Merritt picked the new white Minnie shoes... Merritt's are pictured in the photo below.

Merritt and I were participating in the 5K, and the Pixie Dust Challenge (the 10K and the Half Marathon)... so after some shopping and browsing we headed back to the hotel for a few zzzs.  We had plans to get back up around dinner time and eat a good meal and then head to bed for our early morning on Friday for the Neverland 5K!

Got my photo with Jeff Galloway - he is always so encouraging and motivating!

Stay tuned for Race Recaps coming soon!

Were you there??? 

Tell me what were your top 3 favs from the weekend!


  1. Yes! We were there for all three races as well. One of my favorite things from the weekend was the Tinkerbell jacket I got at the expo. I did like the jacket from last year better but was still thankful to have got one this year since I saw they sold out.

    1. Which jacket did you end up purchasing? I do have the dark teal/green jacket from 2014 and I love it! When we were shopping on Thursday they didn't have the Pixie Dust Challenge magnet out yet... I waited for 40 minutes for them to bring the magnet I wanted to the merchandise area... the things we do for that merchandise!
