Participants wanting to purchase runDisney merchandise on the first day of the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports will now be required to have a virtual return time. Disney hopes this feature will cut down on long wait times and allow attendees to enjoy other areas of the expo.

In order to get a virtual return time, guests will need to download the My Disney Experience app and ensure location services are turned on. Guests can find a virtual queue time under the Virtual Queues section on the welcome screen of the app. Guests can request to join the virtual queue at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 3.
