    We are sailing on the Dream for a Castaway Cay double dip in June. Do you know which day the 5K will be? Port Adventure booking opens soon and I want to choose the right day for other adventures - Thank you!

    Welcome aboard, Vanessa! Greetings from another Ohioan! With these warmer than average winter days lately here in Ohio, it's got me anxious to head out to sea with Disney before the cold hits! I'm happy to hear that you're dreaming of a Bahamian sailing this summer too!

    The Double Dip cruise on the Disney Dream is so magical because it includes two stops at Castaway Cay, Disney's private island paradise. I have really enjoyed the Double Dip cruises we have experienced because one day on that beautiful beach is never enough for me! Traditionally, the runDisney Castaway Cay 5K fun run is held on the first of the two port stops on the island. However, that is always subject to change. Check with Guest Services once you're onboard for the exact details, but I'd say you can plan on it being the first day.

    If you're concerned about booking Port Adventures, check the start time for the adventures you're considering because they may begin after the 5K is over, in which case, I'd suggest booking for the first port day. If not, go ahead and book for the second. I say this because sometimes weather or wind which brings bigger waves can cancel certain adventures on the island, so it's nice to have a second day to try again if that first day doesn't work out. Most of the time all goes as scheduled, but I like to have a backup plan!

    Have such fun counting down the next few months until you head out to sea, Vanessa. Pop back again if you have more questions before you set sail. We're always happy to help!
