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! Here are 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 7, 2021.
The party opens to Wine and Dine party ticket holders at 5 pm and runs until 12:30 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. Here’s just a few you may want to take note of:
- all-new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
- Test Track
- Frozen Ever After
- Soarin’ Around the World
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.
There will be a special showing of HarmouniUS that evening as well.
Love characters? Me too.
In the past, rare characters were out along World Showcase for pictures.
Just announced: Villainous Character Sightings!
- China- Shan Yu
- Germany- The Evil Queen or The Witch
- Italy- J. Worthington Foulfellow or Gideon
- American Adventure- Dr. Facillier or Oogie Boogie
- Morocco- Jafar
- France- Gaston or Maleficent
- United Kingdom- Queen of Hearts or Cruella deVil
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, you’ll probably have a great time!
