    HI! I want to register for the castaway cay challenge after PHM 16. Could you walk me through the process? Do you register for the challenge first then the cruise? We wouldn't want to do the cruise that year if we didn't get the challenge with it. Thanks!

    Welcome back, Marci! 

    Princesses everywhere are waiting with baited breath to find out if the Castaway Cay Challenge will be offered following the 2016 Disney Princess Half Marathon - It has not yet been decided. Here is how the process works, should this tropical race return. 

    Your first step is to register for a race of at least a 5K or higher during Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Registration opens July 14th; hopefully it will be announced by then. 

    Next, you'll book your cruise on the sailing that will be a part of this race weekend. Remember to note your reservation number.

    Last, you register for Castaway Cay Challenge on the runDisney website. This is where having your reservation number at the ready will come in handy, you'll need it to complete your race registration form for the Castaway Cay 5K. 

    That's how it works! Now for the hard part, waiting to hear if it will make a return. 

    I hope this helps, Marci! And as always, please do not hesitate to let me know if you should have any additional questions.
