    I am going to do the 5K when we sail on the Disney Dream October 1. What is the walking/running trail like?

    Hi Patricia!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oh my gosh, your upcoming Disney Cruise to paradise is right around the corner! Eeee! You're going to fall in love with Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! If you enjoy snorkeling, or have always wanted to try it, I recommend booking the Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rental and exploring all the wonders under the sea during your time on the island!

    My favorite way to start my day at Castaway Cay is by doing the Castaway Cay 5K! I'm so excited to hEAR that you're going to participate in it during your cruise! The 5K event allows Guests to experience both walking trails offered. One trail offers a smaller scenic loop whereas the second trail takes Guests to a beautiful lookout point near the adult-only beach, Serenity Bay. In my opinion, the difficulty level is low because the trails are nice and flat; however, it is HOT walking or running on the pavement, so definitely drink plenty of water, and wear hats, sunscreen and sunglasses! You will be sure to get a beautiful and challenging 5K run/walk!

    While onboard the Disney Dream, don't miss out on the Broadway-style show, Beauty and the Beast! I recently had an opportunity to see it and was blown away at how amazing it was! Patricia, I'm wishing you a DREAM-y and unforgettable adventure! If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us again!
