The all-new Disney Castaway Cay Challenge is an ultimate running adventure, combining one magical 5K event or longer during the 2015 Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend (January 7-11, 2015) with a Castaway Cay 5K on Disney Cruise Lines’ private tropical island in the Bahamas the following week. On Monday, when Marathon weekend is over, set sail on board the Disney Dream for a 4-night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral. You’ll sail to Disney Castaway Cay for your 5K run along sandy white beaches, past swaying palms and sparkling turquoise lagoons, with magical Disney moments to surprise you along the way. It’s a runner’s paradise in a spectacular island oasis. Best of all, as a runDisney guest on board the Disney Dream, you’ll receive VIP treatment with exciting activities, special merchandise offerings, and featured menu items.

From parks to paradise…and a dream getaway on board a magical cruise! Be one of the first to earn your Disney Castaway Cay Challenge Inaugural Finisher Medal!

    This sounds like total fun especially with kids! I’ve never been on a cruise but I would like to try it.
