    How do I sign up for the 5K on Castaway Key?

    Welcome to planDisney Laura!

    Running (or walking!) the 5k route on Castaway Cay is a wonderful way to explore this beautiful island. At this time, you do not have to register as there is no group race with a starting time. You can, however, run the 5k on your own. The route is clearly marked, starting by the bike rental shack. Stop by Guest Services or check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app on how to receive your medal for finishing! 

    Another great way to see the island is to rent a bike. Rentals are available by the hour. I find the one hour is just about the perfect amount of time to make a loop of Castaway Cay then back to drop off the bike. 

    After all this exercise on Castaway Cay, you will certainly be ready for a fantastic lunch at Cookie's BBQ. Enjoy burgers, hot dogs, chicken, and ribs. The potato salad is out of this world! For dessert enjoy giant chocolate chip cookies and soft serve ice cream. 

    With the trails, scenery, crystal blue waters, and delicious food, I really think Castaway Cay is a Disney paradise! Enjoy your day on this incredible island during your Disney Cruise!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
