There’s also the Disneyland Paris 5K which will be taking place at night giving runners the chance to see Hollywood Boulevard including The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror lit up at night.
Runners will also have a chance to get their hands on some fantastic new medals which Disney has recently revealed.

In addition Disney is introducing the Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo Challenge for runners who complete both the 10k and the half marathon. They will receive a third medal that features Cinderella’s Coach.
The final medal in this gorgeous line-up is the very special and highly coveted Castle to Château Challenge medal.
