    Hi, we are planning an adults trip for the Wine & Dine half marathon. We will attend the after-party, but no other park days. We'll enjoy Dole Whips by the pool to recover on Monday! Can we purchase memory maker w/o a park visit?

    Hello Angela!

    Are you as excited about the return of in-person runDisney events as I am? While I am not headed to the Walt Disney World Resort for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, we are currently training and picking our royal costumes for the 2022 Princess Half Marathon Weekend. There is just something about a runDisney event that keeps me motivated and running, even through a snowy Indiana winter!

    You do not need to visit a theme park to purchase Memory Maker, Angela! And you do have a few choices. If you are just wanting to have your photos from the half marathon, I recommend the Memory Maker One Day. It comes with a substantially lower price tag, and would include your on-course photos from the race! If you are running more than one of the events, such as the Two Course Challenge, you may want to consider the full Memory Maker. If you plan to do the full Memory Maker, purchase it at least three days in advance of your trip because the Memory Maker - Advanced Purchase comes with a discount! If you wait until arrival, you’ll end up paying quite a bit more than you need to. Save that extra money for some DOLE WHIP!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Angela. Wishing you good luck with the last few weeks of your training. Have a great race!
