The Disney Wine & Dine Marathon Weekend returns to Walt Disney World Resort on November 6-7, 2015. If I was a runner, this would be the race for me (okay, I’m really all about the Finish Line party at Epcot). For guests attending this year’s event, here is a first look some commemorative merchandise being released that weekend.
Guest will have many options for apparel items this year including logo t-shirts, long sleeve shirts and hooded sweatshirts. Two of my favorite items are the jackets with the best tagline printed on the back – “Don’t Wine … Just Run!” In addition, we’ve created commemorative pins, drinkware, Sweaty Bands and Bondi Bands.
Other items will include the ever popular “I Did It” shirt for both the half marathon and Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K. Guests may also find car magnets for all races that weekend and a special ear hat for the Kids Races.
Finally, we will be introducing several new runDisney logo items during the weekend. From comfortable shirts to stylish jackets, these items are the perfect thing to wear while training for your next runDisney event.
This year, we are offering an early shopping opportunity for guests who attend the first-ever Disney Wine & Dine Welcome Reception on Thursday, November 5. This ticketed event will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the hp Field House at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. You can read more about this reception by visiting runDisney.com.
Look for these items and more at runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. On Friday, November 6, the Expo will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Expo will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 7.
Will you be able to buy this Merch online? And if so when?
@Evan – These items will be offered at runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. No plans for online sales that I know.
On Friday, November 6, the Expo will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Expo will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 7.
Thanks Steven for a thorough merch report as always! I am loving the merch for this race, although I’m unsure about the orange I Did It Shirt. Do you know how much those and the stemless wine glasses will be?
@Gretchen – You’re welcome. The I Did It tee is a ladies tee for $32.95. The stemless glass is $13.95.
Wine a Lot… Ran a Little. Oh my goodness! Seeing how I am a strict observer of the Jeff Galloway Run/Walk training guide, this shirt has my name written ALL over it. And yes, I am so looking forward to the Finish Line party!
Dooney & Bourke are not producing any runDisney purses for this event right? Am I assuming correctly that the Food and Wine Dooney & Bourke purses are the only ones available?
@Susana – From what I’ve seen, you are correct.
Quick question, is there a cost to attend the Health & Fitness Expo? I won’t be at this event this year and I was hoping to send my mom over to the Expo to pick up some of the runDisney wear for me.
@Shannon – The Expo is open to all guests.
It looks like the red hoodie is the only sweatshirt material hoodie? Are the solid gray and the purple and gray t shirt material? And how much will they be? Any other true sweatshirt hoodies that will be available at the Expo?
@Linda – The red fleece pullover hood is Adult sizing and has a retail of $49.95. The solid gray and purple hooded items are performance fabrics (not fleece).
Will the runDisney specific merch be available eventually online?
@Elyse – I believe the online store may carry select runDisney logo items in the coming months. I don’t have a confirmed launch date at this time.
Is the Pin at the expo different from the one I prepurchased during registration?
@Christina – The logo pin is the one that guests could pre-purchased during registration. The medal replica pin will be released only at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo. It has a retail of $15.95.
Thanks Steven for all the fabulous pics and info – 12 days and counting til we leave! The stemware this year is so much better than last year – super excited! It will be hard to pic & choose what other merchandise I want to buy…….See ya real soon!
Are the champion jackets with “Don’t Wine, Just Run” tagline on the back the same as the ones that were available for pre-order?
@David – The pre-sell jacket has exclusive artwork on it and is not the jacket shown above.
One more pricing question for you if you don’t mind Steven. How much will the tank top and the performance hoodie in the first group be? Thank you so much!
