Early this week Walt Disney World was scheduled to open up registration for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend slated to take place this Fall during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. However, yesterday Disney released the following tweet:
Registration for #WineDineHalf Weekend is temporarily delayed. We will have a registration update later this week, so please check back then. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to hosting our runners for the race at Walt Disney World Resort from Nov. 1-4, 2018. pic.twitter.com/af6e0TeNQI

Though Disney says they are looking forward to the race taking place from Nov. 1-4, runners and racing fans are worried that there may be changes afoot. As we reported late last year, Disney made the announcement that they would be cancelling all race weekends at Disneyland Resort beginning in 2018. Though Disney sited construction around Disneyland as they prepare for Pixar Pier and Star Wars Land, it has put runDisney fans on edge that Walt Disney World may be scaling back their runDisney offerings.
As of going to print, Disney has said they will make an update later this week regarding the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. This is a story we’ll be watching closely so keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest news and updates.
