    I'm trying to plan how many base park tickets to buy when I do the Wine and Dine Half Marathon. Does the race start in one of the parks? Since we have entry to Epcot after the race will the rides be open? I'm planning to visit one park a day.

    Hi Nancy!  The Wine and Dine is my favorite runDisney race!  I love running at night and going through the parks!

    The race will begin at the Wide World of Sports complex.  You will run through Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  The finish line is outside of Epcot, where you will then enter for the post-race party.  There will be some attractions open that night.  Here is a description of the finish-line party for people who buy tickets.  The ticket will be included in your race fee:

    Disney Wine & Dine Finish Line Party Ticket includes:

    • Early entry into Epcot® at 7:00 p.m.
    • Access to over 25 Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival kiosks
    • Select Epcot® attractions, including Soarin'™, Test Track and Mission: SPACE®
    • $10 Disney Gift Card
    • Character Meet & Greets
    • Musical performances, entertainment and a live DJ
    • Live viewing of the race start and finish

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
