    We're sailing on the Dream in 13 days! I'm planning on running the Castaway Cay 5k while the kids are in Scuttle's Cove. Is there any place I can check my bag during the race? Thanks.

    Welcome aboard, Sharon! Can you believe how soon you'll be setting sail with Disney Cruise Line? You must be counting down the hours at this point!

    The Castaway Cay 5K is a runDisney fun run that usually takes place each morning on Castaway Cay. Be sure to check your Personal Navigator the night before to ensure that it is scheduled and where the meeting location will be. Normally, you'll meet on the ship and walk off with the group. Don't forget to grab a couple beach towels as you walk off the ship. That way, you don't have to go back to the ship to get them after the race. At the starting point, Cast Members will have a large box for runners to store their belongings.

    There will be at least one water stop along the route, at the halfway mark, though I'm told that sometimes Cast Members set up an extra one in addition to the halfway stop. Get ready for a fun run in a beautiful setting, Sharon! And when you're dragging toward the end, remind yourself that you have a gorgeous beach waiting for you once you're done! That's a great incentive!

    Have an amazing cruise! I'm happy to help with any last minute questions you might have before you set sail!
