    ¡Hola Iris!

    Bienvenida a planDisney! How excited are you to be planning a fantastic Disney Cruise vacation! Having experienced our first cruise as a family onboard the Disney Dream, Disney Cruises have been our primary choice of relaxation on the high seas! Not to mention their specialty-themed cruises of  Halloween On The High Seas and Very Merrytime Cruises, which make cruising during the holiday season extra special. 

    One of our favorite parts of the itinerary is Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line's private island. There are so many activities to participate in, such as snorkeling at Snorkeling Lagoon, relaxing on the Family Beach, or running the Castaway Cay 5K. The Castaway Cay 5K is a great way to get some physical fitness done while enjoying the sights and sounds of the island. Guests 10 and older can participate in the run, so, unfortunately, your avid exerciser would need to wait another two years before he can strap on his running shoes at Castaway Cay. Don't let this deter you from exploring the island yourselves, and I'm sure your steps will amount to more than a 5K! Finally, Iris, don't forget to visit us at planDisney en español for any future Disney planning advice!

    I truly hope this helps you experience an incredible vacation at sea, enjoying all that you can while on a Disney Cruise!
