wine&dineSMALLThat’s right! The Race for the Taste has been discontinued, and Disney World now brings you the Wine & Dine Half Marathon!

Scheduled for October 2, 2010, this new race will take you though three Walt Disney World theme parks, and will culminate in an after-hours party at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

According to Disney:

Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon features:

* First nighttime half marathon
* Brand new course through 3 Walt Disney World theme parks
* Disney Entertainment on-course
* Finish inside Epcot® World Showcase
* Exclusive After Hours Epcot International Food & Wine Festival
* Event Weekend Transportation from the Event Host Resorts only

And just think: all this for $135 and a whole lotta training! ;-) I hope to see you there!

    I need to sign up for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, but cannot get through. Is registration closed or if not is there a way that I can register if I were in Orlando at any given time?

    Transportation after the Race !!!

    Hi, My name is Andre and I am from Brazil. I will be running the “Disney Wine&Dine 1/2 Marathon” and this will be my first sport event at Disney!!! I’m counting the days until race day.

    I have a question about the transportation after the race. I will be staying at the Pop Century Resort (this is not a Event Host Resorts). My wife will drop me at the Wild World of sports for the race and she won’t be able to pick me up at Epcot at the finish line (we have 2 litlle kids and will be late at night).

    I was wondering if anyone has any idea how can I go back to POP CENTURY using the disney transportation !!!

    Hi Andre — You should be able to take a bus back to Pop Century after the race (buses leave from the front of Epcot Theme Park). If you stay too long at the after party and buses have stopped running (not likely to happen, but you never know), you should be able to get a taxi back to Pop Century from the Beach Club Resort (which is within walking distance of Epcot).
