Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hello! I'm cruising to the Eastern Caribbean on the Disney Fantasy in September and while I know there is a gym onboard I was wondering if the ship was also equipped with an outdoor running track that was the length of the ship itself? Thanks!
- - Asked by Christine on 6/12/2013
- Welcome aboard, Christine! Just a few more months until you set sail to the Eastern Caribbean on the Disney Fantasy! I bet you are excited already!
You'll be happy to know that not only does the Fantasy boast an amazing fitness center on Deck 11 Forward, Goofy's Sports Deck on Deck 13 Aft, but there is also a walking/running track that circles the outside of Deck 4, running the length of the ship on both sides and around the forward and aft. The lap is about .4 miles, so walking or jogging the loop eight times is a full 5K.
If you are a runner, you might also be interested to know that on most mornings when Disney's ships dock at Castaway Cay, guests can join in the Castaway Cay 5K Fun Run. Watch your Personal Navigator (the ship's schedule of events and activities) for more details once you are onboard. It should let you know if that run will occur and where to meet beforehand to get your bib number. Then, the group will set off to the starting line on the island where you can enjoy beautiful scenery as you complete the 5K.
Have fun as you continue planning your cruise, Christine. I'm happy to help with any other questions you might have, so feel free to stop back here!
