    Hi! I'm sure this has been asked before, but I heard there is an option to run a 5K on the Castaway Cay Island. We are sailing on Disney Dream departing April 6. Also, any suggestions on getting a good deal for park tickets to Disney World?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your upcoming Disney Cruise is just weeks away! I'm so excited for you to step aboard the Disney Dream and begin your adventure at sea. It sounds like you may be either considering a Disney Vacation by Land and Sea or taking a separate vacation in the future to Walt Disney World Resort, too! My family loves spending time with Mickey and his friends on both land and sea!

    One of my favorite ways to start the morning during our visit to Castaway Cay is by participating in the Castaway Cay 5K! This is such a fun event for all levels; you can run, jog or walk this beautiful, flat paved course. Once onboard, you can head over to the Port Adventures Desk or Guest Services Desk to register for the 5K run! Keep an eye on your Personal Navigator newsletter or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for details on when the meeting time is the morning of the event. Runners will receive an official runDisney race bib, and also a medal once you cross the finish line! Even though the Castaway Cay 5K is always held early in the morning, it's quite warm, so I recommend drinking lots of water before, during and after!

    The best place to look for promotions related to Walt Disney World Resort vacations and tickets would be the Special Offers page on the Walt Disney World website. Here, you'll find all the exciting current offers for upcoming Disney vacations!

    Stephanie, I'm wishing you a magical time during your upcoming Disney Cruise! Have fun during the Castaway Cay 5K and then enjoy a day relaxing by the ocean!
