On the morning following the Disneyland Half Marathon, Walt Disney World cast members arriving at Cinderella’s Royal table found the doors to the popular dining hall had been bolted from the inside. However, Guest services did manage to gain access to the hall about an hour later only to discover a meeting of the Disney villains led by Maleficent.
Not one to be deterred by the presence of mere mortals, Maleficent continued to spell out her diabolical plan to turn our beloved Disney Princesses into the semblances of their evil counterparts.
Maleficent threatened that the Princesses would be kidnapped prior to Disney Marathon weekend in January and that before mid-day of that Sunday’s event the transformation would be completed high atop Spaceship Earth. Thus destroying the dreams of would be princesses around the world.
To ensure that no one interferes with her diabolical plan, Maleficent has assigned a number of Disney villains to guard the miles of road leading into Epcot.
Guard Mile 01: Pete
Guard Mile 02: Big Bad Wolf
Guard Mile 03: Doctor Facilier
Guard Mile 04: Captain Hook
Guard Mile 05: Horace and Jasper
Guards Mile 14: Madame Medusa's pet crocodiles. Brutus and Nero
Guard Mile 16: Scar
Guard Mile 17: Hopper
Guard Mile 18: Sid Phillips
Guard Mile 19: Syndrome
Guard Mile 20: Randall Boggs
Guard Mile 21: Zurg
Guard Mile 22: Ursula
Guards Mile 23: Pain and Panic
Guard Mile 24: Hades
Guard Mile 25: Evil Queen
Guard Mile 26: Maleficent
After handing out assignments to her gathered minions, Maleficent along with all the other villains vanished into a puff of green smoke.
As the smoke began to clear bright lights of pink, blue, and green descended from the rafters and Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather stepped from the clearing smoke.
Merryweather reassured the Cast Members and the hungry, yet patient guests behind them that not one but four heroes shall arise to foil Maleficent’s plan. And those heros are:
Donald, Goofy, Mickey and let us not forget the "d'Artagnan" of this fearless group...
Your mission (as I'm sure you have already guessed) is to fulfill your role as the Disney Character whose race you have selected for this upcoming January. With each completed mile you will have defeated one of Maleficents minions as you charge forth toward the next.
Defeating these villains is not an easy task and will require many weeks of preparation. (good thing that a super villain such as Malficent has granted us 17 weeks notice before unleashing her plan)
In the weeks ahead visualize the villains you will face at each mile. Train hard, the Princesses are counting on you!!!
