    Since it starts so early I started and finished in the dark, can’t really enjoy the views that way, the lights they use to light the way Can be blinding. They only had 1 water stop, no Powerade, it was the hottest of the 3 races that weekend. Loved seeing the costumes everyone wore. But walkers are a problem if you like running your course because they don’t care if you are running through they take up the whole course path and refuse to move for anyone and I ended up running off into the grass multiple times, which Can be dangerous since it’s uneven and sometimes broken up pavement pieces in some areas.
    Medals are nice, shirts are long sleeve, snack boxes at end!

    2:55am wake up to get to parking by 3:30am (I prefer to drive in as it’s cheaper to stay off Disney property), Medals (3 of them) are sweet , shirts long sleeves, nice snack boxes, Powerade, a sweat towel at end, long lines for character pics.
    This year the weather was almost perfect, I didn’t like that the 10k only had water, the lights they use to light the way in some areas Can be blinding when it’s still dark.
    I totally enjoyed the half marathon no complaints at all regarding the race. But the walkers at any Disney race seem to not have manners and take up the course left to right with no regard that there are others there who actually want to run, I ended up in the grass a few times to get around them.
    The 10k and half you are transported from parking lot to the startline area.

    This was a cooler race because it was during the wine and dine festival. They do offer a $15 gift card to buy food at the after party that is held the evening of the race. I didn’t get to attend, but that was a nice feature. There aren’t many spectators. You do need to submit a previous race time in order to get a decent corral. Still plan to get to the start line an hour or so before the race in order to get a good spot in your corral. The pre race expo has a lot of cheaply made items that are expensive. Post race food is terrible (oreos and nachos).

    It is early… but with transportation and event coordination, it is super easy and effortless to get to the start line. If you want to get into your specific corral (ie I was in Corral A), this race is not intended for competition, but more a fun and enjoyable experience.

    I mention this as I showed up about 15-20 minutes before corral was supposed to close and I was turned away, told it was at capacity and I was asked to go to the back… which I found out was actually back to corral D. I sifted through gates and did not make many friends, but I found they just allow ANYONE to the corral and the corral guards do not know any better and are just doing their job, but it was rather frustrating to be going off in the 2nd/3rd corral and after 5k int the race, I was all by myself and not able to run with the folks that were at the front that I was trying to pace with and compete with.

    Ya live and ya learn…. because outside of that, it was a fun race, fun course and just awesome spectacle.

    This was my first Wine and Dine Half and 10k, but not my first Disney race. I love Disney races, although they are expensive. This was my favorite of all the ones I have run so far. Great characters in course, music on course, and this one came with entry into the food festival with a $15 dining credit. As always, race production is fantastic and the medals and T-shirt’s were incredible. The race expo is huge, and all staff and cast memebers are very supportive before, during, and after the race. Just remember to always put down a previous race time during registration, so that you get an accurate starting corral and don’t end up at the last one if that’s not where you should be. I love runDisney, they are pretty amazing.

    **Disney races are expensive, but also great races for first timers: relaxed mile requirements, lots of fun entertainment, and fellow runners of all experiences, speeds, and sizes.**

    I’d heard a lot of wonderful things about the Wine and Dine weekend- a cool night race with a fun after party. This year, they changed the race to be another early morning run (like the other halfs). It was fine, but nothing remarkably different from the other Disney races. You get to go through the parks, including Animal Kingdom and Epcot. The after party was still fun (the Wine and Food Festival is fun- lots of great food) but after getting up at 4AM- staying up late that night wasn’t the easiest thing for me.

    Fid second year of 10k distance. Thought course was ok but not fan of starting in 1 park ending in another. Got to go thru 3 parks. Lots of road running. Nice time of year get to see parks switch from Halloween to Christmas.

    Cotton Tshirt – even 5Kers like tech.
    Cute Medal, but should have been flashier – wasn’t very holiday-like, no color.
    Snack boxes left us hungry.
    Transport from and to hotel was awesome, as always.

    Zero ability to get coffee or food prior to race. Disney could surely have food courts open for real, hot breakfast and coffee during race weekends. Who wants a day-old bagel for breakfast?

    Running through AK was the draw for this race. We were very excited to get to run through without all the guests, but it was so dark you couldn’t enjoy the scenery. It was hard to see the edges of the path and the course narrowed several times causing the crowd to obscure dangers ahead (like cones in the path).

    On course support was cute and fun.

    This was my first wine and dine at Disneyworld. I would definately go back and do this race again. As a night race it is unique and with the food and wine festival afterwards that makes it the total package. This year it was unfortunate because of the rain. It started raining when we were in our corals and didn’t let up all night long. Even though we had dry clothes in our checked bags we couldn’t break the chill. We made it until 4 am at the park but we were cold and damp and if wasn’t Disney I would dare say cranky, but we pulled through. Disney races are unlike any other and I love them!
