At Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon, I ran around the world, not once, but twice with my husband, Phil. First, we tackled a 13.1-mile course through Walt Disney World, then we ate around the World Showcase at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at the Finish Line Party, dressed as Aladdin and Jasmine no less.

Without contest, Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon has the best after party of any race I’ve ever run, and the run is incredibly fun too. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the fun from the course and afterwards. Full race report to come!

That’s just a little taste of the fun we had at Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon. Stay tuned for my full race report, recap from the Wine & Dine Half Marathon MeetUp and more!

I attended Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon courtesy of runDisney and New Balance. But as always, all opinions are purely my own. I really do believe in being honest about my experiences and Disney is no exception. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.

    Aw, you guys look great! Maybe it’s the lack of light, but you made a better Jasmine than I think you thought you would (re: being fair-skinned).

    It’s absolutely adorable! I can’t imagine running in parachute pants, though.
