Announcing the New Disney Castaway Cay Challenge

posted on July 21st, 2014 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line

Once again we’re teaming up with runDisney for another Castaway Cay Challenge. This time, we’re calling all princesses!


Runners who complete the Castaway Cay 5K during the February 23-27 Disney Dream voyage, in addition to one 5K event or longer during the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, will earn the Castaway Cay Challenge finisher medal. This is only the second opportunity ever for Disney cruisers to take on this challenge.

If you’ve never joined us for the 5K on Castaway Cay, you’re in for a treat! You’ll be one of the first off the ship once we dock at our private island for amazing views of the pristine lagoons and beaches. And of course, like any Disney race, you’ll be thrilled with surprise magical moments and entertainment throughout the race.

Registration opens tomorrow at noon ET. Head over to for all of the details, and then grab your running shoes and swim suit for what’s sure to be an incredible week of fun!

If you missed our announcement of the inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge in January 2015, take a look back at all the details here. We’re so excited to be partnering with runDisney on these two exclusive events for Disney cruisers!

So I guess the 7 night cruise on the Magic that leaves on Feb. 22 isn’t applicable? Oh well. I’d rather have 7 nights of cruising than a challenge medal anyway :)

I signed us up for the CCC for January. I was so afraid it would sell out quick that I left the Star Wars parade at DHS and sat in the car hooked to a portable wifi network. Lol. Can’t wait for this runDisney event after Dopey. Still hoping runDisney will let is pick up Star Wars Wookie Challenge race packets on the ship. The time between ship docking and racing back to Disneyland will be its own special Challenge. Pass that along to the powers that be please Jonathan.

Hi! How do I sign up for the Castaway Cay 5K run in December 2014? I heard I can sign up on the ship, but haven’t been able to locate any info. Thanks!
