    I am interested in doing the 5k that they have in November. I know it is sold out for this year but I am interested in doing the 5k next year. I want to take a cruise and it is on the same Saturday, would I be back in time to take the shuttle at 11am.

    Hi, April! 

    Welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney! I'm excited to hear you are interested in participating in the 2016 Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K. And how exciting you will be combining your race with a Disney Cruise Line vacation. Don't forget to check your Navigator once you board for information on the free Castaway Cay 5K Fun-Run that is offered on all itineraries that dock at Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. 

    As far as making the 11:00am shuttle time, you should have no problem with that! This race is typical held at 7:30am, which should provide you plenty of time to get back to your resort. Just keep in mind if you do not stay at a "host hotel" for this race, you will need to provide your own transportation to/from as tradition theme park bus transportation to Disney's Animal Kingdom will not be running at the time of the race. 

    I hope this information is helpful, April! Please do not hesitate to send me any additional questions you may have. I am here to help you navigate the waters of planning a surf and turf race-cation.
