Who else is excited about Pandora opening in Animal Kingdom?? I have been watching friends, who were fortunate to get a preview, post on social media and I'm much more excited about it than I thought I would be. A wonderful friend, Jackie of Delightfully Jackie, wore the Pandora shirt from Magical Run Concierge to the park. You can read all about her experience here. Fair warning, you will quickly be planning a Walt Disney World trip to see it for yourself!
Could her family be any cuter?? If you would like you own Pandora shirt you can find it at the Magical Run Concierge Etsy Shop. Jackie and her family are wearing the performance tshirt, it's moisture wicking, breathable fabric makes it aperfect pick for hot days in the parks! If you have any questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have a confession to make...I use my Etsy shop as an excuse to plan running costumes. Truth is I almost always have an idea in my head and I pin way too many run costumes on Pinterest. It's "research" for the shop...yeah right!!
I'm not sure how many of you may know me as Disney Donna Kay, but my blog is such an important part of who I am. Through DDK I have made so many friends, friends who are such an intregal part of my life now - Beth of A Disney Mom's Thoughts, Beth of Pursuing the Magic, Didi of DIStherapy, just to name a few. Through DDK I found a love for runDisney which brought me to opening my Etsy store, Magical Run Concierge - and if you're here you know what a huge part of my life it is.
One of my favorite party boards - because I really love Once Upon A Time
The most popular feature on Disney Donna Kay was my Disney Party Boards, I have decided to add a similar feature here at Magical Run Concierge - Run Costume Boards!! I will choose a character and scour the net to bring you the best places to find all of the elements you need to put together an awesome costume. I am so excited!!
Edna Mode is one of my favorite characters, as a matter of fact I have told my friends I channel my inner Edna while making shirts (especially Incredibles tanks) for my shop. So I will be channeling my inner Edna, and using all of that research, to put together amazing costume ideas that are both practical and adorable. Be watching for some awesome ideas this week!!

I love everything about runDisney events, but as I've said before my favorite part is running with my friends. I don't get to make it to as many events as I would like, that's why I love that runDisney has the Virtual Running Shorts Series. But the best part is that even though I'm in Alabama and Donna is in New York we get to run "together" as Runketeers in the Red Pants leg of this challenge.
The Red Pants 5k completion time frame is June 5-18, so this weekend I decided to fire up the treadmill, pull on my Red Pants and run my 3.1 miles. And I will get this awesome medal for my efforts!
Now, you cannot participate in any runDisney event in just any shorts and tee shirt. I had to have the perfect attire, and that's where the Runketeer tank from Magical Run Concierge comes in. It's perfect for this event -it matches my red shorts and is comfy and moisture wicking (because I may or may not have been on the treadmill for a while...). I made some cute yellow shoes to tie to my running shoes and of course I had to have my bib. Thanks DIStherapy for providing an easy to find link in your post!!
Here's Flat Donna Kay all ready for race time!
And in honor of the Virtual Running Shorts Series I have added a fun new shirt to Magical Run Concierge. You can also join team Runketeer and order a tank of your own, we would love to have you!! Because I love nothing more that running with Donna, let's celebrate by using the code SHORTS for 15% off either shirt!
Don't miss Donna's post at DIStherapy! And all of her fabulous posts there, it is my go to fun runDisney training info!! Now I'm off to get ready for the White Glove leg of the challenge. Hope to "see" you there!!
Today's Friday Fashion is direct from my own closet and it's great for a day in the parks, casual Friday in the office or shopping with friends. It's sophisticated, but still a little whimsical.
My go to place for adult Disney fashion is Kohl's for the Lauren Conrad Disney collections. The black sweater and top are from her Minnie Dots collection. I love the attention to detail, from the Mickey and Minnie signatures on the top to the bows on the pockets of the sweater. I even found them on sale!!
The white cigarette pants were a TJ Maxx find and the flats are from Target. Accessorize with this cute bracelet from my friend's shop - C-Glass Design by Ellen and my favorite ring with interchangable snaps! You don't have to spend a fortune to look put together, and in this case be super comfy at the same time!!
We've gathered at our designated corrals and are making our way to the starting line. There's an excitement in the air (despite the ungodly hour) and as we look around we see kindred spirits. Those who understand what it took to get here. The planning that went into choosing the perfect costume, the miles, blisters and sore muscles, not to mention the determination, that got us where we are. The literal blood, sweat and tears that brought us to today. The chEARleaders who encourage us both here and at home.
There really isn't anything quite as magical as a runDisney event. It's a magic I hope to emulate at Magical Run Concierge. This magical place is full of costume inspiration, training tips, and event information. A place of encouragement and resources for everyone from first time runners to old pros. A place filled with tutus, tiaras, and running shoes...we are runDisney Princes and Princesses after all.
