Say hello to the announcers
And we're off!
R2D2 had one of the longest lines I'd ever seen - this was one of the lines that was closed when I went by
Mile 1 as we head in the back of Epcot
Large screens were set up playing Star Wars movie clips
The countries around World Showcase were lit up. I'm sure it was supposed to be red for the dark side, but really it looked pink and kind of made me smile
It's off to run we go
Who's the fairest one of all?
Enjoying a stroll around World Showcase
American Pavilion is very pretty in the early morning light
Yes, this is a line of people waiting for a character to come back out
Eeyore and Piglet
Spaceship Earth ahead
Phineas and Ferb
Pretty little flowers
This is the first race with Photopass Photographers instead of MarathonFoto. I like the fact that they are easy to spot with their little green pop-up tents.

Official Finisher Photo - I like the logo included with the PhotoPass picture, but notice the backdrop is just a generic runDisney backdrop - no more race specific backdrops. I am very bummed about that.
In summary, this race wasn't terrible. It was a bit crowded, but it wasn't terrible. The character lines were ridiculous and some of the worst I've seen. The Photopass Photographers were easy to spot, but I did encounter some issues with the photos later on. Still, if you like Star Wars and runDisney this isn't a terrible race to do.
