    We want to do a boat tour on the Castaway island but also want to do the 5 K. How long does the 5 k take for a normal human being lol. Since there is only three slots left on the adventure..do you know the start time. Is please.

    Ahoy, Deepa!

    Thank you for reaching out with another great question about your upcoming Very Merrytime Cruise aboard the beautiful Disney Dream! I know how excited your crew must be to embark on this journey with Captains Mickey and Minnie this November. 

    I've recently returned from a magical visit to Disney's private island, Castaway Cay and my travel companions participated in the Castaway Cay 5K, so I'm happy to share some details about their experience. The meeting time onboard is usually around 8:00 to 8:15 a.m. with an all ashore around 8:30 a.m. The starting line is about a 15-minute walk from the pier, so you'll want to plan time to disembark and get over to the course. It may be 9:00 a.m. or so before the run begins. I'd estimate around 30 minutes to run and about 45 minutes to walk. The course is flat, and there are a few water stops along the way to keep you hydrated. Once you have completed this fun run, you'll be awarded a colorful medal as a keepsake. It is one of my favorite ways to start the day in this tropical Bahamian paradise. 

    Deepa, I believe you are considering the Crazy Horse Jet Boat Tour Port Adventure after you complete your run. This excursion meets at Marge's Barges, which located very close to where the ship will be docked, so that you can plan a 10-15 minute walk to this location. You also may want to stop to change clothes and use the restroom, so I'd say a Port Adventure should not be reserved before 11:00 a.m. It is not any fun to feel rushed on vacation!

    I hope my answer is helpful, Deepa. If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
