PHM Budgeting

The Princess Half Marathon is no ordinary race, and as it requires traveling to Disney World, it is not cheap. This page will help me keep track of what this whole ordeal is going to cost!

Projected travel dates: Friday, February 22, 2013 - Thursday, February 28, 2013


  • Half Marathon Entrance fee - $149.56
  • Race Retreat - $99 (without tax)
  • Commemorative pin - $14.76
  • Flights - $250 per person (for 2 people)
  • Hotel - $972 (for 6 nights - dates listed above in a standard room at Disney's Art of Animation)
  • Park Tickets - $262 per person for 5 days - Park Hoppers
  • Souvenirs (including expo) - $300
  • Running Costume - $100 - have skirt and shorts, need running tank, white fabric for costume details, crown, black ribbon, rhinestones.
  • Food - $400 (based on what we spent last time including snacks and everything)
Total: $3,161(including the ChEAR package for BF)

Sources of Money to Offset cost:
  • My mother has graciously agreed to give me $5 for every mile I run in training to pay for the trip
As of July 25, 2012 - 70.76 miles - $358.80
  • Although I haven't started yet, I have a TON of books from first and second year of medical school that I plan to sell to hopefully pay for part of the trip as well.
