    When are the party events at Epcot for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon? Every night from November 3-5 or just on the 5th? Is Epcot extra crowded during the day on race days or just at night?

    Hi Jill! Welcome to planDisney.

    Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend will be here very soon. Runners from all over the world head to Walt Disney World Resort to combine their loves of Disney, food, and miles to celebrate together. If you are a runner, I wish you happy and fun miles. If you are a day visitor, encourage and congratulate those running races.

    The Post-Race Party takes place on November 5, 2023. This is a hard-ticketed event that begins at 10:00 PM. Party tickets will allow guests to enter EPCOT beginning at 5:00 PM. From my experience, crowds can be heavy from this time to the closing of EPCOT for day guests. If you are attending the party, I encourage you to stay late. Often, attendees start thinning at about 11:30 PM, and wait times for character meet-ups and attractions are low.

    Personally, I have never felt like day crowds are largely impacted by runDisney race events. Keep in mind, that road closures occur in the mornings. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, I recommend utilizing Resort Transportation. Cast Members will know the best and fastest routes to the theme parks. Always allow more time to get to your destination.

    Keeping it Magical,
