2019 brought a few changes including a new 5K park to run through for the Wine and Dine. Will those changes remain for 2021?

Magic 8-Ball says: yes. WhompWhomp  

The 5K is now being run through Epcot, but there were some slight changes to the course.

This post is being updated as the details come out. But here is the 2019 Wine and Dine course maps, event guide, corrals and more post if you want a previous year reference.

runDisney Wine and Dine 2021: Course Maps, Event Guide, Corrals and more!

Why do we make this post every year when runDisney shares the info as well? Because, as they say, screenshots last forever.

And runners like to look back on previous courses and corrals and obsess a little. 

You know it’s true! 

We do this for all the runDisney events; so hang around if you’re looking for the Ultimate Guide to runDisney

So here we go: our annual guide to running Disney Wine and Dine.

You’ll find all the information a runner needs to know before they the runDisney Wine and Dine 2021 including course maps, start groups, waivers, and event guide.

This is a living document, so information will be added as it comes out.

runDisney Wine and Dine 2021 Corrals and Start Groups

**New for 2021!**

runDisney will be utilizing Start Groups to follow health and safety guidelines and manage the flow of participants from the staging area to the start of the race. Your start group designation is a small “s” followed by a number (such as s1, s2, s3, s4) and is located in the upper corner of your bib.

Bib numbers can be found on the Expo Pass, but at this time there is not a Corral chart to reference. We’ll be working on one after the event to hopefully reference for next year.

You can use the 2019 corrals as a guide for this year’s race.

For the 2021 Wine and Dine race, the Start Groups truly looked like the previous Corral set up. We just used numbers rather than letters.

If this changes in future races, we’ll let you know.

But as of this race, if you are familiar with how the runDisney corral system worked in the past, then you will know exactly how the system is working now.

They changed the name to Start Groups and gave us numbers, but that really was the only difference noted.

Mini-waves are still being used inside each start group and those are not pre-determined or selected. If you want to be in an earlier wave, get to your start group when it opens.

Need more info? Of course, you do!

Be sure to check out the Disney Wine and Dine event guide

And the event guide is no longer going to be printed out, so this is what you get, folks!

Don’t forget to visit the Wine and Food Festival in Epcot. We suggest *after* the run, but hey, we’re not your mother.

Drinking around the World is a fun experience, but one you’ll need to do after the race (World Showcase is closed during the runs. Boo!)

And be sure to check out the Wine and Dine Virtual Goodie Bag, too.

runDisney PhotoPass Pictures

My most favorite thing runDisney has ever done was change to PhotoPass photographers for a runDisney race weekend

Huge improvement in service and quality of photos since they started this- much appreciated!

If you’ve purchased Memory Maker before the Disney Wine and Dine 2021 race weekend, you can link your photos from the races using these codes.

They can’t be linked in advance, so just remember to link up post-race or the morning of the race.

Here’s the PhotoPass code info you need for the 2021 Wine and Dine race.

  • Half Marathon: 2021-WINE-HLFx-xxxx
  • 10K: 2021-WINE-10Kx-xxxx
  • 5K: 2021-WINE-D5Kx-xxxx
