    Going on our first cruise- fantasy. Will there be a 5k run at castaway stop? Western Caribbean may 7-14

    Ahoy, Anna! Welcome aboard planDisney! I'm so glad that you thought to stop by with your question as you prepare for a cruise on the Disney Fantasy. 

    The Disney Fantasy is a beautiful ship that sails stunning itineraries. One of my favorite places for the Disney Fantasy to pull into Port is at Castaway Cay. I can't wait for you to experience it all and the time to set sail is drawing near! 

    As of today, the Castaway 5k race on Castaway Cay is not a group race that can be registered for in advance. You are welcome to run the 5k course on your own during your time on the island while staying physically distanced from others. Once you are on board the ship, check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for more information about where and when you can pick up your medal for finishing the race! 

    Now, we are still a few weeks away from your time on Castaway Cay, so the protocols may change between now and then. I recommend that you visit the Updated Experiences page of the Disney Cruise Line website before you set sail. If you look under the heading "Ports of Call" and scroll down to the section about Castaway Cay, you'll be able to see what you can expect about the race specifically.

    Since you are asking about the race, you may also enjoy some of the other opportunities to be active while enjoying Disney's private island. I am a big fan of renting a bike and taking a spin around Castaway Cay or snorkeling in the clear and calm waters of the Snorkeling Lagoon. 

    Between all of that activity, it's important to fuel up! And what's better fuel than an ice cream and cookie sandwich? You can create your own masterpiece by snagging a cookie from the BBQ lunch served on the island and sandwiching some refreshing soft-serve between it. It's my favorite mid-day snack on Castaway Cay. 

    I hope you race back to us at planDisney if you have any more questions as you prepare to set sail!

    Bon Voyage,
