Spectators Hold Up Race Signs for runDisney Bride on Wedding Day at Walt Disney World

runDisney Spectators Signs at Disney Bride Wedding

The runDisney online community is a tight knit group. It should be no surprise that when bride Kimberly Raspantini put out an invite for fellow runDisney enthusiasts to join her on the Disney Boardwalk, the community responded. My favorite of the three signs “Dole Whips at the Finish”.

The spectators added a little extra Disney magic to the bride’s special day. Kimberly wrote on Facebook, “I’m so happy they came, it was such a highlight for me!” The spectating couple gave the signs to Kimberley’s wedding coordinator and she took them home as a memento of the occasion.
