    My fiance and I are interested in the 5k on castaway cay this may 2018. We have a port adventure at 10am. Should I switch the time or will we be able to make it to both

    Hi there, Laura!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is fast approaching!  Before you know it, you will be setting sail to the high seas for a wonderful and relaxing vacation!  I am sure you can use that if you’re in the midst of wedding planning!  

    I just LOVE Castaway Cay!  And the Castaway 5K is such a fun and unique way to get a great workout in AND see the island!  Then, once you are done you can sit back and enjoy the sun, and and crystal clear waters!  I highly recommend participating in the 5K run on your day there; you won’t regret it and you will get a fun souvenir finishers medal!  All in good fun!  If you plan on participating, it will most likely take until close to 10 or so to complete.  Previously when I've participated, you will meet onboard around 8:00AM or so and go as a group to the starting line.  By the time it was completed and we were back to the ship to get ready a beach day it was after 10AM.  So, if I were you, I would push back your excursion at Castaway Cay a bit in order to fully enjoy the experience without feeling rushed!  You can easily do that by logging onto your My Cruise Activities page!  Oh, and 5K Registration is done with Guest Services once onboard!

    Once your 5K is done and your excursion is complete, grab some lunch from Cookie’s BBQ and head to the beach to relax and enjoy!  Serenity Bay is the adult-only portion of Castaway Cay and the views and sounds of the ocean are really fantastic there!  Did you know Senses Spa also offers beachside massages?!?  I think that sounds like a perfect way to spend your day!!  

    Happy Sailing - and Happy Wedding Planning!
