Running returns to Walt Disney World Resort this November with the 2021 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend powered by AfterShokz. runDisney is excited to celebrate the first race weekend back with a wickedly delicious party at EPCOT – and YOU’RE invited! Come out to the runDisney Post-Race Party to congratulate all the medal-wearing runners and enjoy things like after-hours access to select attractions, character sightings and specialty food and beverage.
Following a weekend of exciting endurance events, it’s time to all come together to wine and dine, in true EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE fashion. Bring your appetite to sip and savor 20 different festival-exclusive Global Marketplaces while getting your groove on to the sounds of live music from local Central Florida bands at the America Gardens Bandstand. Party-goers can taste their way around the “world” and experience all the excitement of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE beginning at 5 p.m. Make plans to also experience “Harmonious,” the all-new nighttime spectacular launching in concert with “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” shining a light on 15 favorite Disney songs reimagined by a culturally diverse ensemble of 240 artists from around the globe, including musicians, composers, arrangers, vocalists and more.
Following the evening’s nighttime spectacular, things heat up as EPCOT stays open later, just for YOU. Enjoy the after-hours fun until 12:30 a.m. including access to the Global Marketplaces, select EPCOT attractions like all-new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Test Track, and Frozen Ever After, experience the glittering lights as Spaceship Earth transforms into a Beacon of Magic, and villainous character sightings! Post-Race Party guests won’t want to miss a specialty themed night-cap called the “Evil Elixir.” The sinister concoction features a mixture of white rum, blue curaçao, sour apple pucker, pineapple juice, white-grape juice, and Sprite, a wickedly delicious drink even a true villain would approve of.
Whether you’re a runner, friends and family or just want to celebrate the villainous weekend with us, you won’t want to miss out on the runDisney Post-Race Party action! Participants of the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon and Disney Two Course Challenge automatically receive entry with their race registration.
