    I’m receiving conflicting information about the Castaway Cay 5K. Are my kiddos, 8 and 7, able to walk/run with us without officially registering for the race?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Courtnee!

    I am so excited that you will be setting sail to Castaway Cay with Captain Mickey so soon!  I bet your pirates-in-training are thrilled that they will be onboard before the end of the month.  

    The 5K is a very popular way for guests to start the day on Castaway Cay!  Guests must be 10 years of age or older to participate in the Castaway Cay 5K and run or walk the course.  Guests who are under 10 years of age can enjoy some time with the Youth Counselors at Scuttle's Cove, which opens early to accommodate families participating in the 5K.  

    You can register for this event by visiting the Guest Services Desk (Deck 3, Midship).  More information about the event can also be found on your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App.

    While on the island, there are many activities outside of the 5K you can enjoy together.  My pirates love to spend some time challenging each other at In-Da-Shade Game Pavilion, enjoying the slides at Pelican Plunge and lounging in hammocks on the family beach.

    My family also has a tradition each time we visit to rent bicycles and take a ride around the island.  We also make time for a stop at the observation tower to get a great family picture with the ship in the background.  There are bikes available for all ages and skill levels to participate!

    Enjoy making memories together this summer.  "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
