    Will there be a 5k run on Castaway Cay in 2017 or 2018?

    Ahoy, Kim!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You couldn't have chosen a better vacation destination to participate in a 5K run than on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! I've found each port of call on every Disney Cruise I've sailed aboard beautiful, but nothing tops Castaway Cay! You will be amazed at all this private island has to offer.

    I look forward to participating in the Castaway Cay 5K each voyage that makes a stop at the tropical island of Castaway Cay. It's my favorite 5K run! Although schedules are always subject to change, Disney Cruise Line has offered a 5K run on each cruise visiting Castaway Cay that I've been on! Unless there is a change in the schedule, you can look forward to a 5K on Castaway Cay during your upcoming voyage, too! Take a look at your Personal Navigator newsletter or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app the night before arriving at Castaway Cay for details on where to meet for this event. Typically, Guests wanting to participate will meet around 8:00 a.m. at a designated location onboard the ship, disembark the ship together and walk to the starting line.

    Kim, I'm so excited for you to experience starting your morning off with a run through paradise. Even though the run begins early in the morning, it can be quite warm depending on what time of year your cruise is. I recommend drinking lots of water leading up to the event as well as after.

    Thank you so much for asking us this question. If you have any future questions, please sail back and visit us again!
