    Going on a first time Disney cruise woo hoo! How are we sign up for the 5k on castaway cay, and will there be finisher medals? Really looking forward to it. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to planDisney Jonathan!

    Castaway Cay is truly an island paradise. Whether you spend the day on the Family Beach or hop on a tram to Serenity Bay (for guests 18 and older) you are in for the best beach day ever! Sink your toes into the sand and enjoy this magical private island.  

    Currently guests do not need to sign-up to run (or walk!) the island 5K. There is not an organized group start time. When you are ready to start, simply head to the start line located near the bike rental. The route is clearly marked. On your mark, get set, GO! When you return to the ship, stop by Guest Services for your completion medal. 

    The entire route is also accessible by bike, with rentals available by the hour. This is a great way to explore Castaway Cay. I usually like to take a quick lap around the island in the morning before the heat of the day. 

    After your run, stop by one of the outdoor showers to cool down then be ready for your amazing lunch at Cookies BBQ! Enjoy burgers, chicken, ribs, and my favorite: the potato salad! 

    Enjoy your FIRST Disney Cruise! Welcome to the cruise family, we are happy to have you onboard!

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!
