Although the race weekend events won’t take place at Walt Disney World this year, all registered runners for the 2020 Wine & Dine Half Marathon race weekend will have the opportunity, if they choose, to transfer their registrations to the new virtual version and show off their inner Disney Villain, running right from their own neighborhood, home gym, or wherever they choose to run!

Get excited for this year’s wickedly delicious virtual menu of events that celebrate some of the most beloved Disney Villains.

    It's pretty expensive for a virtual run (regular runDisney races are expensive, but I figure you're mostly paying for the experience), and none of the race themes excite me enough to pay the cost, so I won't be participating in this one. But I look forward to future runDisney virtual events! (Pixar ones *ahemahemInsideOutahem*, maybe? Or a throwback run with Robin Hood would be excellent! Or any run with Timon that is not a Kid's Race!)

    I did the virtual Star Wars 1/2 Marathon this spring, and the virtual series this summer.

    Going to pass on Wine and Dine as, 1. It is more expensive than normal virtual races, 2. I am not jazzed about any of the medals or characters and 3. I already did 8 virtual races this year (The live races I signed up for went virtual) so that is enough for me! LOL

    I am signed up for the 5K during Marathon Weekend in 2021. I really wanted the 1/2 marathon, but it sold out before I could finish registering! I hope by January we'll be able to do live races...but I have been saying that for 6 months now, and no end in sight for social distancing etc...

    I can't justify spending that much on a virtual 5k, even if Kronk is on the shirt...

    I kept my registration for the 5k, but I'm peeved I won't get my pins and at the price. I sent them my annoyance in an email that I'm paying the same price for all the amenities and I get none (yes, we get a $10 gift card, but that's not the same when you realize that means the shirt cost $40).

    I passed on this one too. It’s too much for a virtual but I’m going to guess they had costs they had to cover (perhaps permits for closing roads and such) that weren’t refundable so pass that on to the customer.

    Im going to try to register for Dark Side on the passholder registration day, since I’ll still have my annual pass then. I want my legacy status dangit.

    Not running Princess 21 though. I’ll return for 22, since I should HOPEFULLY be done with my current run with college.

    Good luck! I wish California would let us know what will happen with legacy status for our runs, since they've essentially suspended them indefinitely. I need to know if they're giving them up completely, resuming them with virtual races, at some point bringing live events back and resuming the statuses, etc. I have Star Wars and Super Hero legacy in limbo right now.
