    Hi! If I am lucky enough to reserve a cabana on Serenity Bay on our 25th anniversary cruise, I'm trying to decide if my husband and I would run the CC5K like we usually do. Do you know how it would work to schedule both of those things? Is it possible?

    Ahoy, Cari!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! A 25th anniversary celebration aboard a Disney Cruise sounds like the perfect way to reminisce about the past 25 years together and plan all the fun for the next 25! I love that you and your husband run the Castaway Cay 5K together! This is one of my favorite running events on the planet. In my opinion, beginning your morning by running 3.1 miles through paradise is just a perfect way to start the day!

    It is absolutely possible to have a private cabana reserved and run the Castaway Cay 5K on the same day! If you're able to reserve a coveted private cabana on Serenity Bay, your Stateroom Host/Hostess will leave you an envelope inside of your stateroom; inside you'll find instructions on where to meet your Cabana Host as well as wristbands to wear once the ship docks at Castaway Cay. It is my understanding that Guests do not have a specific time they must arrive for Cabana check-in.

    I've known Guests to have worn their wristbands to the run, complete the run and head straight to their private cabana afterward! Another option is for you to complete the run, head back to the ship and then go to the Cabana check-in area to start the relaxing portion of your day in paradise! Once you arrive onboard, I suggest stopping by Guest Services just to double check that there still isn't a cut-off for the cabana check-in time. Once confirmed, you can go ahead and sign up for for run at the same time!

    If you have any further questions while planning your anniversary celebration cruise, please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again!
