The Castaway Cay 5K is offered weather permitting when you visit Disney’ Castaway Cay. You will make your way past swaying palms as you run or walk along the air strip to the observation tower and take the lead past sweeping shorelines to the finish line. All finishers receive an exclusive Disney Castaway Cay 5K medal.

Disney will have you complete a required release waiver to participate. Once signed, you’ll receive a Castaway Cay 5K race bib and will be asked to review the 5K course during your cruise. Please be sure to check the Personal Navigator or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for more information, including specific times and location information once onboard.

On race day, meet on Disney Castaway Cay at the bike rentals location approximately 20 minutes after the ship docks. Your leader will escort you to the starting line. Again, double check the navigator for any meeting location changes.

Although there is a running timer at the star/finish line, the 5K challenge is NOT timed, consider this simply as a fun run. The course is easy to follow as there are markers and Crew Members stationed along the course. Once completed, you can celebrate with an exclusive Disney Cruise Line Castaway Cay 5K medal.

It is important to remember, the Castaway Cay 5K is not part of the runDisney Castaway Cay Challenge taking place during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. For more information on this challenge, please visit runDisney.

1994
February
 – Disney announces the purchase of Gorda Cay, a 1,000-acre uninhabited island in the Bahamas. Imagineers immediately set about turning it into Castaway Cay island to welcome passengers of Disney Cruise Line, which will launch two years later.

May – Walt Disney Imagineering merges with Disney Development Company, which was formed in the mid-1980s to oversee the design and construction of hotels and Disney administrative buildings. The blended organization is called Walt Disney Imagineering because, says one Disney executive, “The Imagineering name is so powerful and so unique.”
