Once we were settled in our room at Pop Century the hubs, SIL, and I decided it was time to check out the Fit For a Princess Expo. In the two years leading up to the 2014 races I've read countless runDisney recaps and knew that runDisney Expos are some of the best. I had a mental list of the booths I wanted to visit and the merchandise I wanted to buy. I knew that even though it was the first day of the Expo it was going to be pretty crowded and tried to prepare the hubs for what to expect. People, people, and more people!
One of the perks of staying on property during race weekend is having a fancy shuttle bus to take you to the expo and races. It was nice not having to figure out how to get to the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex and we didn't have to find parking!

After I picked up my shirts I stopped for a few pictures with my bib.

|The countdown is on!|
Now it was time to get down to business... shopping, but not before stopping for a picture with the coachmen.
|They were the first ones to call me Princess.|
|So many vendors, so little time and money!|
We made our way to the BondiBand booth. I had a mission to find a headband for each race and was able to complete the mission. They were running a special of three bands for $20 so I picked up a black band with a pink tiara for the 10K, a special Little Mermaid band for the half, and a special 19.3 band for completing the Glass Slipper Challenge.
Once finished at the BondiBand booth we headed to the official merchandise booth. I knew I wanted an "I Did It" shirt for the GSC and a 19.3 magnet for my car. I was able to find both of those plus a very cute Princess Half Marathon Weekend shirt that had all three medals on the back. If you've seen my Facebook or Instagram updates you know that the PHM shirt didn't hold up very well in the wash. I'm still waiting to hear back from Disney. I hope they replace the shirt because I really liked it. I was able to get 2 shirts and the magnet for not very much thanks to the annual passholder discount and gift card from my MIL.
Here's my Expo swag!
