Princess Half: Disney Castaway Cay Challenge & Theme News

Sharing is caring!

Breaking news for Disney Princess Half cruise lovers: you’ve been challenged!  That’s right, runDisney is looking for YOU to take a royal cruise after your races to earn a 5K challenge medal on Castaway Cay.


I don’t think Anastasia and Drizella are invited.  They look pretty annoyed by this announcement, don’t you think?

Some details:

Disney Castaway Cay Challenge
Disney Cruise Line 4-night Bahamian Cruise February 23-27, 2015, following Disney Princess Half Marathon February 19-22, 2015
Disney Castaway Cay 5K February 25, 2015

Registration opens July 22 at Noon ET!

An extra note:

** A reservation on the February 23, 2015 Disney Dream 4-Night Bahamian Cruise is required in order to participate. It is recommended that you register for your Disney cruise PRIOR to registering for the Castaway Cay Challenge. Cruise Line reservations must be booked by September 1, 2014 or your Challenge Reservation will be forfeited. If your Disney Castaway Cay Challenge spot is forfeited for any reason, the race fee is non-refundable. Please refer to for cruise refund policies.

Think you’ll see these characters on your cruise?


Are you taking your Glass Slipper & tiara for a cruise & 5K?  Do you think runDisney will be adding challenges after every race?

ETA: wait- there’s more!

Anyone hear about this movie called Frozen? Well, your 5k and kids races are rumored to be Frozen themed! Look for the news this week (I heard tomorrow is the release date) and be SURE To register for the 5K as soon as you can.

Remember how I waited until 2 weeks before the race last year to register?  With Frozen as the theme, that won’t be possible.  Children 5 and up are eligible to run the Royal Family 5K and I suspect if the Frozen gals are on the course, this sucker is going to sell out FAST.

I ran the “Triple Crown” last year and loved it.  Will this news change your mind about the 5K?

[…] Like last year, there is this special Coast to Coast medal for those that run BOTH the Princess Half Marathon AND the Tinker Bell Half Marathon. Plus, there’s an extra challenge for this year…the Castaway Cay Challenge for those that think taking a Disney cruise right after the Princess Half Marathon Weekend is a fantastic idea and register to run the Castaway Cay 5K. Patty at My No Guilt Life writes about that here. […]

Ok, this is not fair. I signed up for Goofy and decided I wasn't doing Princess, but Frozen is my absolute fav! I live in Seattle, how can I make the trip twice???? I've also just finished a strong margarita which is making everything much more dramatic. Curse you rundisney!!! (Not really, I still love you)

Awh man, I really want to do a Disney Cruise too. It's one of those must do things on my list. It's inexcusable that I live in Florida and still have never done a cruise at all! And Frozen themed 5k! I'm gonna be so jealous of those pictures and medals!
