    Hi, there! My husband and I just got back from our first Disney cruise! We ran the Castaway Cay 5K and were thrilled to recieve medals. In thinking about future cruises, if we run the Castaway Cay 5K in the future, do the look of the medals change? Thanks!

    Hi there, Michelle!

    Welcome back from your first Disney Cruise Line vacation!  I am so glad to hEAR you had a magical time and are considering cruising with Captain Mickey again in the future!  One thing is for sure, no matter how many Disney Cruise Line vacations you go on, there is always something new to explore, do or see!  And with three new ships joining the fleet in the next few years, there will be lots of new and exciting things to come!

    The Castaway Cay 5K is my FAVORITE thing to do when I visit Disney’s private island!  I love starting my day out with a run around the island before settling in for a relaxing day at the beach!  Plus, once I’ve completed the run, I don’t feel so guilty indulging in one of those delicious and huge chocolate chip cookies at Cookies BBQ!  And, the finishers medal is a perfect souvenir to take home to remember the experience by!  I have visited Castaway Cay on a few occasions, always participating in the 5K and have received a couple different medals at the end of the run.  Disney Cruise Line does not announce when – or if – they are going to be changing the finishers medals, so I cannot guarantee whether or not it will be different upon your next visit!  But, as I have done in the past, when I received the same medal, I just noted the voyage date on the back of it and added it to my collection!  But, since I have seen some changes over the past years, I do anticipate they will change it up, but just not sure when or how often!

    With so many itineraries and four ships to currently choose from, you have so many exciting opportunities to visit Castaway Cay again!  Once you do get that next adventure at sea booked, come back and perhaps we will have some updated information on the current finishers medal!

    Happy Planning!
