    We have a cruise booked for next month and are wondering if it is possible to bring our children along on the castaway cay 5k. We have a 9 year old that would love to participate and our 4 year old would ride in a stroller. Is that possible?

    Hi there, Joe!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  The countdown is on!  Your Disney Cruise Line vacation will soon be here and before you know it, you will be onboard the beautiful Disney Dream heading for a memorable adventure at sea!

    The Castaway Cay 5K is such a fun event to participate in -- and who doesn't want a souvenir finishers medal?!  My husband and I participate in it each time we visit Castaway Cay; we love running around the island before hitting the beach for a day of fun, sun and relaxing!  Currently, the minimum age for participation in the Castaway Cay 5K is 10 years old and strollers are not permitted on the course, so unfortunately, your kiddos are unable to participate with you.  But, that does not mean you cannot!  Scuttle's Cove, the Youth Club on Castaway Cay will be open and you can check your kiddos in there for playtime while you participate!  My boys look forward to going to Scuttle's Cove to play in the sand and splash in the water with the counselors and new friends.  After you’ve completed your race you can pick them up (if you can lure them away…) and head to the beach for a fun family day!

    Don’t forget to check out the Port Adventures available at Castaway Cay!  After a fantastic lunch at Cookies, we enjoy renting bicycles and head out to explore the island not forgetting to stop by one of the two gift shops on the island.  There you will find exclusive Castaway Cay (and Castaway Cay 5K) merchandise!  

    Have the best time on your Bahamian vacation!  Say hi to Captain Mickey for me!

    Happy Sailing!
