The annual Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend will be celebrating 30 years in 2023. It’s the only full marathon offered at Walt Disney World, with most events offering only a half-marathon as the “big event.” For 2023 the marathon is going old school with medals inspired by the 1990’s in honor of when the event started.
