    Is the 5k run at Castaway Cay being held on cruises? If so, do I need to sign up in adVance for this activity?

    Hey there, Kendra!

    So glad to have you here at planDisney. I’d love to be “part of your world” with an upcoming sailing on Disney Cruise Line. Like Ariel, “what would I give to spend a day warm on the sand” of Castaway Cay! Disney’s private island boasts so many amazing activities and Port Adventures, whether you want to stay active exploring the island or relaxing with a Konk Kooler on a beach lounger.

    I love knowing in advance all that is available on Castaway Cay so I can map out my day. While the Castaway Cay 5K has been temporarily paused, Guests can still run the course on their own and receive a medal of completion, and there’s no registration necessary. The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app will let you know where the finishing medallions can be picked up. I am certain that once the Castaway Cay 5K returns, it will be shared on the Experience Updates page as well as how to get registered for the event once it returns to the island.

    Since you are asking about Castaway Cay, I want to make sure you are aware that currently there is a virtual queue to disembark for the island that you would join using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Once your allotted time arrives, you can head ashore. Expect to experience some cool character encounters  as Mickey and the gang ride around on island vehicles waving and interacting with Guests. 

    Grab your dinglehopper (aka computer) and send us more questions as you make your cruise plans. Kendra, have fun in the sun on Castaway Cay and tell Captain Mickey I said hi! 

    Bon voyage!
