    Hi! We will be going on our first Disney Cruise on November 11-15 on Fantasy and I just found out about the Castaway Cay 5K. Is this activity back with all the precautions in place? I can’t seem to find where to register for it. Thank you for your time.

    Hi Christina!

    Welcome back to planDisney! Come sail away with us as we chat all about Disney Cruise Line. One of the reasons why I keep sailing with Disney Cruise Line is the DREAMy destinations. And tops on this list is Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. Our family can choose whether we want to stay busy with biking, swimming, and running OR take a more leisurely approach by lounging on the beach.

    I checked the Experience Updates page just to verify that the Castaway Cay 5K has indeed been temporarily paused. So don’t bother searching for the registration link because right now, it doesn’t exist. However, Guests can run the course and receive a finishing medallion. Information on where you can pick up the medals will be available via the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app

    If you do end up running your own version of the Castaway Cay 5K, be sure to take some time to rest and relax on the beach! My other favorite active experiences include water sliding at Pelican Plunge, snorkeling at the Castaway Family Beach, chilling out at the adults-only Serenity Bay, and biking around the island. Whatever your plans are, scroll to the bottom of this link to find the Castaway Cay map and figure out the island in advance.  

    Don’t walk, RUN back to planDisney if you need additional planning advice. We'd love to SEA ya real soon!
