    Are there certain characters I can expect at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa! 

    I hope you are looking forward to the 2015 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon. November will be here before you know it. 

    While there will be a plethora of character photo opportunities on-course during this tasty race, runDisney does not release an official list. However, I can tell you from my own personal experience that you're likely to find the "Fab 5" (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto & Goofy) and other various animal characters such as Baloo and Timon as you run through Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. There will also be characters such as Lighting McQueen, Buzz, Woody and the Toy Story Army Men in Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    *All characters are subject to change and rotate in and out throughout the race - so a character that was not out when the first group of runners pass, may be out by the time later runners pass. Look for official runDisney signs on the course indicating there are characters ahead. 

    In addition to on-course photo opportunities, there will also be pre-race photos in the Start Zone Area with Chef Mickey and Chef Minnie.

    I hope this helps, Lisa! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions as you continue planning and preparing to wine, dine & run.
