    We are going on a Disney Dream cruise. Are kids (5 and 8 years old) allowed to participate? Is there a cost fif he 5k?

    Hi there, Theresa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited for you and your vacation aboard the Disney Dream!  With countless activities and entertainment onboard, including the newest live-show, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, you are going to have an incredible vacation!

    Your children are at great age to participate – and enjoy – the Youth Clubs onboard.  My boys love spending time time in the Oceaneer Club and Lab creating, playing and making new friends!  You may find yourself having a hard time getting them to leave with all the fun they will have in there; I know I always have a hard time convincing mine to leave!

    The Castaway Cay 5K is a fun activity to do to start off your day at Disney's private island with a run around the island!  Currently, the minimum age for participation is ten-years old, but your children can play at the island’s Youth Club, Scuttle's Cove while you participate in the run!  You will simply drop them off before heading to the starting line for the run!  There is no additional cost to participate in the Castaway Cay 5K, but you will need to register with Guest Services once you are onboard to secure your bib number!  I definitely recommend doing this as it’s a great way to see the island and get your workout in before spending a relaxing day on the beach.  And don’t forget to reward yourself with an extra chocolate chip cookie at Cookies BBQ with your lunch!

    Have a FANTASTic vacation, Theresa!  Enjoy every bit of it!

    Happy Sailing!
