    Hi! My daughter and I will be going on the Christmas cruise December 3,2018. She will be 11 then and she is a runner. Will she be able to run the 5k at Castaway Cay with me?

    Ahoy, Nicole!

    What a magical cruise you have planned for December of 2018! The holiday season is a wonderful time to set sail because of the festive events and activities scheduled and the dazzling decor that fills the ship from stem to stern. I could spend hours in the Grand Lobby Atrium soaking in the beautiful scenery especially the 24-foot tall Christmas tree and life-sized Gingerbread House. Not only will the ship be decked out, but you'll also love the holiday touches added to Castaway Cay! Your cruise photos will be extra-special from this spirited vacation! 

    The Castaway Cay 5K is a fabulous way to begin your day on Disney's private island. Guests 10 and over are able to participate in this 3-mile run, so you and your daughter will be able to sign-up on the ship prior to your arrival at Castaway Cay. On the morning of your run, you'll meet on the ship to disembark as a group after picking up your official runDisney race bibs. Medals, which make great souvenirs, will be awarded at the finish line. Once you're done, it's a short walk back to the ship if you prefer to shower and change into your beach attire in your stateroom. 

    Nicole, thank you for coming by to "sea" us with your cruise question. We hope you'll sail back over if you think of anything else before your Very Merrytime Cruise with Disney Cruise Line!
