    Are they still doing the castaway cay 5K on all of the sailings on the dream?

    Welcome to planDisney Johanne!

    Burning off some calories on a 5k always feels great. And somehow it does not feel like exercise when you are running (or walking in my case!) around the beautiful island of Castaway Cay

    At this time, there is no formal 5k group race. However, you are welcome to run the route on your own during your magical day on the island. Start the route by the bike shack, then it is "off to the races!" Details on receiving a medal can be found on your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app or stop by Guest Services the evening or morning before heading off the ship on Castaway Cay. 

    When hopping off the ship at Castaway Cay, make sure to grab a beach towel. You will also find crew members selling bottled water if you want to pick up a few bottles to keep hydrated during your beach day. And of course, my favorite part of the day, don't forget the yummy lunch waiting for you at Cookie's BBQ! After running the 5k, one of the giant chocolate chip cookies will certainly be in order!

    If staying in tip-top shape is a priority during your cruise, stop by the Fitness Center for a run on the treadmills or make a few laps in the mornings on the running track on Deck 4. Every 2.5 laps = one mile. 

    Wishing you a magical voyage on the Disney Dream

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
