    Do I have to preregister for the Castaway Cay 5K?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Janice!

    I am thrilled to hear that you are racing toward your magical getaway with Captain Mickey.  Even more exciting is that you will be visiting my favorite island paradise, Castaway Cay!  

    One of the most popular ways to start your day on Disney's private island is running the Castaway Cay 5K.  To register, you can select the race when you are making your onboard reservations and Port Adventure selections once your cruise is paid in full and your advance booking window opens.  When viewing your reservations on the Disney Cruise Line website, steer yourself to the day you will be visiting Castaway Cay and the 5K can be added to your plans under "onboard fun."  Once you are onboard the ship, you can also visit the Guest Services Desk and register for the race in person.

    After you have your workout in for the day, relax your muscles and enjoy some time in the sand and surf.  My husband and I like to spend the morning after the 5K at Serenity Bay Beach and then enjoy lunch at the Serenity Bay BBQ.  You will find some unique lunch items at this adult exclusive lunch location on the island!  Later, enjoy a drink or two at the Heads Up Bar or check out the sights under the waves in the snorkeling lagoon.  However you choose to enjoy your day here, it will be practically perfect in every way!

    Race back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail, Janice!

    We hope to "sea" you again real soon!  Angie
