    I keep reading about a 5k on cast away. Can you walk the race ? I am trying to complete at least one but don't think I'll be able to run it.

    Virtual greetings to you, Tracy!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and sending in a great question. How awesome to hear that you've got a goal in mind and you can actually achieve this right in Disney's Private Island, Castaway Cay! Yes - you can do this... we all know you can.

    The Castaway Cay 5K fun run is not a strictly timed race. So, you are more than welcome to run, jog, walk and skip the whole way. You'll be a finisher no matter how you complete it... and you'll be wearing that Castaway Cay 5K finisher medal proudly.

    Be sure to check the Personal Navigator for the registration venue on the morning that your ship docks at Castaway Cay. Try to be there early (around 7:30am) to register and to pick up your bib. Specific instructions and the 5K route will be explained, before everyone exits the ship at the same time in an organized fashion. My kids and I had a lot of fun running & walking this 5K just a couple of months ago. Please let me know if you have additional questions on this and I'll try my best to get you some answers.

    Have a magical time on your upcoming cruise, Tracy! Your Castaway Cay adventure awaits!
