    We are coming to the half marathon wine and dine in November. Is the wine and food including at the after party or should I add to my budget for that? Thank you.

    Hi Andrea!

    Welcome to planDisney where we’re always happy to chat runDisney!  I’m so excited you’re heading to Walt Disney World Resort this year for the 2024 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend! I’ve participated in this race weekend several times and it’s one of my favorites.  Not only do you have the chance to enjoy a fabulous race, but you’ll also be able to experience the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival!

    Andrea, participants registered for the Half Marathon or Two Course Challenge receive complimentary admission to the Post-Race Party at EPCOT on Sunday night as part of your registration.  You can also purchase additional tickets for friends and family on the runDisney website.  While we haven’t heard the final details on the party for this year, in my experience, the Global Marketplaces were open, but I did have to pay for the food and drink we sampled throughout the night.  

    When I’m visiting the Food and Wine Festival either during the Post-Race Party or during a day visit to EPCOT, I’m overwhelmed by all of the delicious options!  I’d encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog closer to the start of the festival for a Foodie Guide that is typically released which may help you plan your visit.  I also like to buy a Disney Gift Card that I can use to help budget my spending.  

    Besides the Global Marketplaces, you can enjoy select rides, attractions, characters, and entertainment around EPCOT during the party.  While you wait for more specific announcements about what’s planned for this year, you can read more about the offerings during the 2023 Post-Race Party for a “taste” of what might be happening this year!

    Andrea, I hope this information is helpful as you plan for your upcoming visit and runDisney race! If you have any other questions, please stop by to see me or my panelist pals here at planDisney again!

    Enjoy every magical mile!
