The price is $89 per person, and is found in the "More Magic" section of the registration, along with the Pasta in the Park party, the commemorative merchandise, and the ChEAR Squad packages.
As others have noted, this appears to be the replacement for the runDisney meetups previously offered before race weekends, but is now presented by Runner's World as part of their partnership with runDisney.
Registration for this added event opens at Noon Eastern / 9 Pacific on January 28, along with the rest of the 2014 Half Marathon events.
