runDisney Announces Virtual Queue For Buying Merchandise

If you’re attending the 2022 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend, we’ve got some important news for you!


Disney has started using virtual queues for many big events — popular rides, the D23 Expo, and more. The half marathon will be joined by the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo, and now, Disney has announced they’ll be using a virtual queue to manage merchandise crowds at the event!

Virtual queues will only be used on the first day of the expo, so you can spend more time visiting with other vendors instead of waiting in line.

You’ll need to download the My Disney Experience app to use the virtual queue, which you can join at 7:30AM EST on November 3rd. You can have up to 6 people in your shopping party, and if a spot is confirmed for you, you’ll be sent a push notification when it’s time to shop.


The virtual queue is the only way guests can enter to shop on the first day, as there will be no standby queue. However, gold and platinum runDisney members do not need to join the virtual queue to take advantage of their early shopping hours!
