    Sailing on Disney Magic in January 2012 and will be in training for a half marathon. I know the fitness center has treadmills but is there anywhere to run outside while onboard the ship? Thanks!

    Hi, Karen!

    A double congratulations on your upcoming cruise aboard the Disney Magic and training for a half-marathon! I ran my first half-marathon -- Disney's Princess Half -- back in February, and I had to maintain my training on a couple of Disney cruises during that time.

    If you go down to Deck 4, there is a running track that circles the ship, and it's about a 1/3 mile loop. I love running on Disney ships...especially early in the morning while the ship is still gliding across the ocean. As slow as I am, it's certainly the closest I'll ever come to running on water!

    There is also a 5K run on Castaway Cay. You can find out the route from Guest Services or from the Fitness Center, and there is usually an organized group run on the morning the ship docks at Disney's Private Island. This will help you maintain that outdoor element while you're on vacation, and just to keep up your endurance, there are the treadmills and elliptical trainers at the Fitness Center on Deck 9.

    Best wishes as you train and compete, and please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you before you set sail. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!

    Bon voyage...
