run Disney Merchandise


Hi guys! Have we got a bit of a treat for you today!  As you may have remembered from a previous post, I was spending some time at Disney during the last few weeks. During any trip at Disney, shopping at Downtown Disney is a must. One of my favorite shops has always been Team Mickey, especially during a visit when there is not a race going on. At Team Mickey I could always find some run Disney merchandise even in the "off" season.  As you may know, since the remodeling of DTD Team Mickey is no longer there.  However, the Clubhouse up at ESPN also carries run Disney merchandise all year long so a visit there was in order.

If you are running Disney in 2016, you may be interested in this merchandise!
women's marathon jacket
  Women's half zip "In Training" fleece jacket. I thought this was super cute except I'm not really a fan of the half zips. I bought the teal half zip during marathon weekend and I think having one of them is enough. This is cute though, right?

men's marathon jacket
Men's "full zip" in training fleece jacket (front and back).

disney marathon tee
Men's "In Training" Tech tee.  At this time, there was only a men's version of this shirt.
disney running hat
In Training hat. This was made out of that nice light weight material and would make a great running hat.
 
disney marathon training non slip heandbands
 
"In Training" headbands. I really thought these were adorable but I already have several blue Disney Sweatybands. I'm trying to cut back on having so much of the same "stuff"!

marathon magnet
Your basic run Disney magnet. Perfect for any race distance. I have the older version on this one when the mouse ears were white. Perhaps I should have upgraded to this style!
 
Well there you have it, some race merchandise you can expect to see this year at Disney. I know some of this stuff was at previous race expos this year. I do believe I saw some of this merchandise online too at one point but they don't seem to have any of it the last time I checked.

I think the merchandise is really cute, but since most of it is date specific, I'd feel like I wouldn't wear it after the marathon in 2016.  What do you think of the merchandise?

  1. I wish they had some more "girly" items, like with a "princess" theme. Or at least Minnie Mouse! I would also like some generic runDisney gear, without a specific race tied to it. I bought a runDisney shirt from the former Team Mickey a few years ago and always get comments on it. Thanks for sharing these items for us!

    1. I totally agree with more "girly" items and about having more generic run Disney gear. The half zip I bought during marathon weekend was not race specific but I did get in embroidered to say WDW Marathon and I love it!

  2. I would wear it, even after the date. It is Disney, after all!

  3. I don't like when race stuff is date specific because then I feel like it has a shelf life and it's not cheap stuff to buy either.

  4. It's kind of odd they all say "marathon" when there's only one marathon distance in all the runDisney events - you'd think they'd sell more if they said half marathon, or just race, or something!
    I prefer my 2014 PHM "I did it" shirt since that will always be true...when I won't always be in training for a specific year race, especially after that year. :)

    1. I thought the same thing Erika! Unless of course they are considering a "half" marathon to still be "A" marathon, which is just weird but I'm trying to give Disney the benefit of the doubt. you would think it would say "Training for THE Disney Marathon"?

  5. It would be great to be able to buy some less specific run disney goods. I would still wear it after the listed year but it would be nice to get stuff without it :)

  6. I'd want it all :)
    I'm not a fan of the half zips either. You get hot & have to take the whole thing off... boo!

  7. What is the price of the women's jacket?

    1. I think it was like $79. It definitely was not cheap. The full zip one was even more.

  8. So cute! I'm with you on the date, though - I would probably wear it through 2016 and maybe early 2017, but not much beyond that. I also vote that I would love some more-general runDisney items!

  9. I'm headed to WDW at the end of this month. It's a quick trip but I might have to take some time to head over to DTD and check this out. That tech shirt is pretty cool.

    1. The merchandise can be found at the Club House at ESPN. It is no longer at DTD. Have a fun trip!

  10. I love the headbands and the mens fleece! I agree about some more less-dated stuff!

  11. These look great! Thanks for sharing :)

  12. Great tips! I'm going in September and I'll check it out.

  13. I would love it if I was going to run the marathon! The in training headbands are really cute :) I really like 50-50 blend shirts I always wish for something cute with polka dots, or Minnie themed :)

  14. We have run so many Disney races that neither of us needs anything more with the runDisney logo. We did however purchase sweatshirts at TInk because we were cold. Otherwise, we skip the official merchandise now.

    1. That's pretty much the same reason why I did not purchase anything there!

  15. It's interesting, I just got an email with pics of the merchandise for D23 and my reaction after checking it out was, "Good! I won't spend money!" I feel the same way with the Run Disney merch anymore. The Champion stuff is about as low quality as it gets and I rarely like the designs. It didn't used to be that way, but in the last three or four years, it all seems to have taken a dive. It baffles me that people get so worked up over the race merchandise. On the other hand, they're still getting my money through registrations so I can't get too high on a soapbox.

  16. I would go for the headband and maybe the hat if it fit well. I bought an "I Did It" shirt at my first Disney half and never wore it. I don't think I bought anything at the second one.

  17. I always love the jackets, but then see the price tag and suddenly fall out of love.

  18. Super cute stuff. I wish they had a visor! I am in a long process of decluttering my life in general, and have realized I have WAY too much running/race shirts, jackets, tanks, and tees. But Disney is SOOO special I would definitely buy one if I was running the race.

  19. This was all on sale during Marathon weekend at the expo which is why it all says marathon. Makes sense now that it never ended up at the outlet because they brought it to ESPN!

  20. That's some nice looking stuff. I'll have to remember to head there my next trip to see what they have at that point, since there is no ToT race when I'll be there liked I planned for (I may still be a little bitter, haha)

  21. Are you aware if there is any way to purchase the "in training" jacket online or by calling somewhere?
