Sorcerer Mickey Costume

Running a marathon is not easy. Add Florida heat and a full costume, and it’s even more challenging. Sorcerer Mickey from Fantasia is instantly recognizable. It’s a classic costume that you might see others do, so you’ll have to go the extra mile to stand out. It isn’t very complicated which makes it easy to put together.

At race start, it was about 70 degrees and rose to 80 by the end. We stopped at 30 character stops, rode Expedition Everest, and crossed the finish line with a margarita and a bowl of nachos, while almost beating the balloon ladies. Adding all the stops added over an hour and a half to our time, so we had to keep a decent pace the rest of the time. As you can see from the photos below, we had a great time.

Base layer was a cooling compression top and bottom.
Blue shorts
Sorcerer Mickey Hat
Red Robe from Esty
– Shoe covers. I made from brown felt, hot glue, and an elastic band.
– Mickey gloves
Flipbelt to carry everything. An absolute must! I actually wore two. One for my phone and wallet. Another for fuel and to tuck the hat and gloves in while I ran.


Running a marathon in long sleeves and leggings isn’t optimal, but doable considering they are supposedly cooling material. Let’s face it, it’s not as cooling as not wearing a layer of black in Florida.

Post-Race Review

I was pretty happy with how it turned out. There’s not a whole lot I would have changed. I chose to wear the leggings because I feel like the costume is half-done if you don’t do anything from the waist down. I fell behind early on hydration, but caught up later.
