Track Disney Cruise ship

The finish line of Disney's Castaway Cay 5KIf you're taking a Disney Cruise to the Caribbean, chances are you'll make a stop at the cruise line's private island Castaway Cay, a highlight for many travelers who adore the white sand beaches, water toys, bars and shops. Passengers who want a hit of adrenaline, though, can run the Castaway Cay 5K and still have plenty of time for the beach. We tried the fun run while sailing on Disney Dream.

What It Is

The 3.1-mile out-and-back event is free and family friendly; it's open to walkers and runners ages 10 and older. The race takes place first thing in the morning on the island, winding its way along a paved path that takes you past the beach and through tall grasses. The vibe of the event is fun and casual: Participants get race bibs, and the race has an official clock, but there is no chip timing.

Our Experience

Happy runner in Disney's Castaway Cay 5KWe are avid runners, and we typically stay active while cruising, so we thought the Castaway Cay 5K sounded like a perfect plan for our cruise on Disney Dream. We woke to rain and cool temperatures on the morning of our day at the island and were ready to can it, but the idea of running a race on a tropical island won out. We grabbed our gear and headed to the designated onboard meeting place, where we joined 90 or so other early-morning (8:30 a.m.!) risers who were participating.

We received instructions and bibs before heading off the ship as a group. Despite the rain, the first order of business was a group photo - with Goofy, of course. He showed up in his tracksuit just as we left the ship. For all his stretching, though, he never made it to the start line. Photo complete, the peppy staff of two led us to the line, a 10-minute walk away.

The event was casual, and, despite the official clock at the start/finish line, it was not designed to be competitive. In fact, it drew a wide range of participants, from the large group of walkers to the ultra-jock who couldn't seem to find his shirt throughout the whole cruise. Kids mostly ran with their parents; many said it was their first 5K race.
