One of the biggest draws to the runDisney Wine and Dine weekend is the after party held for runners in Epcot. It’s part of your half marathon race entry! runDisney just released some additional details about this year’s Wine & Dine Post Race party.
Runner’s Night Out: Wine and Dine Party Details
First you run all the miles, then you drink all the drinks and take all the runDisney pictures at the afterparty.
That’s what runDisney’s Wine & Dine half weekend is all about!
When is the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Afterparty?
You can join your other runners to celebrate on Sunday, November 3, 2019.
The party opens to Wine and Dine party ticket holders at 5 pm and tuns until 1 am.
Where is the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Afterparty?
It’s a private party in EPCOT.
The park will be open just for runners and their guests (who purchased additional afterparty tickets).
What Can You Do At The Wine & Dine Half Post-Race Party?
You can do a whole lot!
Most attractions will be open for you. Take advantage of those short lines and Soar(in’) Around the World a couple of times, then hit up Test Track to feel some speed at 65 MPH.
Join in the official runner’s toast at 10 pm from anywhere around the World Showcase.
Love characters? Me too.
And this is your chance to meet some rare ones who come out just for you.
Mushu from “Mulan,” Remy from “Ratatouille” and the Three Caballeros are scheduled to attend.
Where are the old school Pleasure Island peeps at? Head over to Morocco for the members of the Adventurers Club. Kungaloosh!
Is It Worth It?
If you already paid for the half marathon bib, then obviously, it’s worth it. Because it’s essentially free.
If you need to find a ticket and attend with a runner, then that’s a trickier question. I’d say if you like a bunch of runners and characters, then it is something worth attending.
And runners are characters, amirite- so keep that in mind.
I personally have skipped it when I’ve run the Wine & Dine weekend in full disclosure. But the reports are generally positive from runners.
And as long as the Wine and Dine weekend weather behaves, I think you’ll have a great time!
