    Default 2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend - now Virtual only (or request refund)

    Dear Guest,

    With circumstances surrounding COVID-19 continuing to change around the globe, we continue to make timely decisions about our operations after considering guidance from local and national health authorities. As we have shared before, we are basing our decisions on the safety and well-being of our Cast Members, athletes and our Guests, since there is nothing more important than that.

    With that in mind, we are transitioning the 2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort to a virtual race. All registered Guests for the onsite event have the option of receiving a full refund for the race, and registered Guests with a U.S. mailing address may convert their existing registration to the new virtual event that can be completed from home, a local running track or favorite running trail.

    Eligible runners who select to participate in the virtual race will receive a race shirt and medal for each distance they complete, in addition to the satisfaction of completing the race they've been training for. Registered participants will receive an email beginning July 23 with instructions on how to make their registration selection before August 5, 2020. If a selection is not made, registered Guests automatically will be refunded.

    2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend Refund Option
    Runners registered for the 2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort who select the refund option will receive a refund back to their original form of payment for the following. If a Guest no longer has their original form of payment used when registering, they may contact runDisney by August 5, 2020 to receive a refund via check or a Disney Gift Card for the following:
    Race registrations (Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, Two Course Challenge and Kids Races)
    Commemorative merchandise (automatic refund - no virtual option)
    ChEAR Squad (automatic refund - no virtual option)
    Processing fee
    Additionally, any registered participant with a shipping address outside of the U.S. will automatically receive a refund back to their original form of payment. At this time, participants without a valid U.S. shipping address are not eligible for the virtual option.

    Refund timing:
    Refunds from runDisney can be expected to be processed in six to eight weeks. If you haven't received your refund after eight weeks, please visit the "contact us" section on runDisney.com.

    2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend Virtual Race Option

    I suspect they don't care as long as they get their registration money.
    I'll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge.
