Wine & Dine Half Marathon post-race party - anyone go in 2016?

I am signed up for the 2 course challenge for the 2017 Wine & Dine runDisney weekend, and I am not finding much (recent) info about the post-race party online. Did anyone go this past year? I am trying to decide whether it’s worth $80 a person to get my parents tickets as well. Was any food included in the ticket price? And were the characters rare, or ones you can see in the parks on a regular basis?


(very belated) bump!
