    My daughter is 19 & would like to do the Castaway Cay 5k Nov.15/19. She may require a wheelchair or only be able to walk the route, is there a maximum time limit to finish the route? Also are medals always given to finishing participants?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Laurie! 

    I am glad you cruised back with another excellent question.  Castaway Cay may be my favorite place on the entire planet!  Give me a hammock and a cold island drink, and I could watch the kids play in the surf all day.  A great way to start your perfect day at Castaway Cay is participating in the 5K!

    Guests participating in the Castaway Cay 5K can finish at their own pace.  Check your Personal Navigator newsletter left in your stateroom or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for more information on how to register to participate in the race, as well as when it is scheduled to start.  You can also make a quick stop at Guest Services (Deck 3, Midship) for more information.  Each participate in this event receives an official racing bib as well as a collectible keepsake.  The collectible keepsake is often a finishing medal, but is subject to change for future sailings.

    I would recommend also reaching out to Special Services prior to your cruise to discuss the possibility of your daughter participating in this event with a wheelchair.  They can help navigate her needs with you and ensure you all have an enjoyable experience.  

    Enjoy making magical memories!  Bon Voyage!  Angie
