Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K will start at 7 AM on Saturday, November 9 and has a slightly different course this year. The race info packet says that water stops will be at mile 1.5 and 2.25 but that doesn’t match up to the map image released for the course.
It will start and finish in the Animal Kingdom parking lot, go through the entrance & up the left side of the Oasis. There will be a water stop about 3/4 of a mile into the race in the Animal Kingdom parking lot.
Runners will be rewarded with a great view of the Tree of Life as they take the downhill and head to Africa. Runners will continue past Expedition Everest, Finding Nemo the Musical, and then cross back over the bridge at Dinoland to exit the park through the Oasis. I think this is a FIRST for RunDisney events, all others that I know of have exited the Animal Kingdom through another backstage area after running through Dinoland.
Runners won’t hit the mile 2 marker until after they exit the Oasis and then will find a long out & back portion into a backstage area that runs all the way behind Expedition Everest. They’ll then return to the Animal Kingdom parking lot to find the finish! This race should be tons of fun!
