Who should I dress as for the Disneyland Half Marathon?

I know my costumes for my upcoming Disney races during Princess weekend: I’ll be doing Snow White for the 10k and Anna for the Half.  However, I’m also planning to sign up for the Disneyland half marathon in September!  And honestly, one of my favorite parts of planning for a race is deciding on a costume.

I plan to run the Princess races as often as I can, and I like dressing as a princess for those – so for Disneyland I’m thinking I would like to do a non-princess.  Here are some ideas I’ve come up with so far.  Which one do you like the best?  Any other suggestions?

Vanellope Von Schweetz


I would really love to do this costume, but I’m wondering if it might be better to save it for when I someday do the Wine and Dine half – because it’s sort of food related and all, with the candy and whatnot.



This might be the one I’m leaning toward the most right now.  Not someone you see all the time, but a pretty awesome (non-Princess) female character.

Mike Wazowski

I love Monsters Inc. and I have more in common with Mike than I would probably like to admit!  This costume would be simple, and fun – but should I save it for some day when I might be able to convince someone to be my Sully?



I love Toy Story, so going as Jessie would be fun.  It might be a more “complicated” costume to put together than some of the others, but maybe it would be worth it?

Sorcerer Mickey

Mickey is a classic, but Sorcerer Mickey is so much cooler!  This costume would be fun, but I wonder if it’s a little boring.

I’m open to other suggestions as well!  What do you think?  Who should I pick?

  1. The Vanellope one is really cute! But I kind of like them all 🙂 Sorcerer Mickey is pretty unique. And Mike seems nice and easy.
