Race Report: 2014 runDisney Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K
Just in time for registration for the 2015 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 noon, EST – here’s the 2014 race report!
Hands down Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K is my favorite Walt Disney World runDisney 5K.
- It is the only 5K course which runs through Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.
- It is holiday themed.
- There is “snow” at the start.
- It begins at 7am – the latest start time of all the runDisney 5K’s.
Dressed in our finest holiday wear, we met up with Photo Bomb Becca in Disney’s Animal Kingdom parking lot to get her dressed before heading to our corral. We learned pretty quick, that our fabulous holiday toppers wouldn’t allow us to run, so our plan was to walk the entire 5K without stopping for photos – an unfortunate consequence of looking so fabulous.
Even though we began in corral C and walked the entire course, we still managed to have a great time spreading “holiday cheer for all to hear.” And just because we weren’t stopping for the “official” character stops, we made our own fun as we completed the first race of the weekend stopping for selfies with course support. Plus we finished long before the sweepers.
