    My family is excited to be traveling on the new dcl wish ship on August 26th, 2022. We want to sign up for the Castaway Cay 5k but I don’t see it listed in activities. Will it be offered and if so, how do we sign up?

    Greetings and a warm welcome back to planDisney, Kim, we thank you for your question!

    You're sailing on the Disney Wish, CONGRATULATIONS! I am so excited about this ship and can't read enough about it, or our upcoming sailings - I had to book back-to-back cruises to enjoy the ship for as long as possible!

    Kim, Disney Castaway Cay is our favourite port of call, my daughter and husband always participate in the Castaway Cay 5K and they've got stories to tell about how much they love this event. Now, there are two ways to register for this event, one is in advance of your sailing using your Disney Cruise Line account or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App by accessing My Plans for your Castaway Cay day in your cruise itinerary. Or, if you wish, on embarkation day, head over to Guest Services or the Port Adventures Desk onboard to register in person. 

    As you will be the first to disembark from the ship for the Castaway Cay 5K take advantage of the Disney Castaway Cay - Fun Photo Opportunities (see the map), before and after your run to showcase your beautiful medal and accomplishment.

    Anyone in your travel party who is age 10 and over can participate to either walk or run during this fun event which is approximately 3.1 miles, and for Guests age 9 and under they can enjoy their fun over at Scuttle's Cove!

    Don't forget to take those unique selfies at the water stations on course and stop by Buy the Seashore gift shop near the second Tram stop at the end of the course to shop for Castaway Cay 5K merchandise - we were so glad that we purchased T-shirts for my daughter and husband because we could not find event merchandise once onboard (subject to change).

    When registering either online or onboard, check to see if any Castaway Cay 5K Premium Packages are available for purchase - in the past this package included a Castaway Cay 5K swag bag that was delivered to your stateroom.

    Kim, it was so much fun helping a fellow Canadian Disney fan, please stop by planDisney for any other first-hand tips and advice, it would be our honour to be of any future assistance - thank you kindly!
