Just wondering if anyone else that's done the CC5K had any other experience with dropping off kids in nursery or kids club? That part makes me a little nervous. My DH and I both want to run,but not sure if we will have time to drop the kids off?

On the FAQ sticky under Castaway Cay 5K, the 5th post shows a picture of the back of the shirt. The front just has small wording on the left side that says Disney Cruise Line 5K Run.

I ran this on 8/6 on the Dream and did not get a medal or certificate.

I knew to wait and see that it might be in the room later, but nothing came. I inquired about it and was told that they suspended the medals/certificates. I did see a box of medals in the lounge that morning before the race but maybe they didn't have enough for everybody so just didn't give them???

Knowing that you can get different answers from different CM's, I inquired at guest services. I was told the same thing but she did make up some Magical Moments certificates for me.

I ran this with my 9 year old niece and my 15 year old. We were never questioned about her being there. Yes, she did finish. Do they want a family with young kids doing this? Probably not, but one child with an adult was no big deal and it was very laid back. On the navigator there is conflicting info about it. In one spot it does say 12+,but on the detailed sheet that lists the times of all activities, it is listed under "Fun for All Ages"

I am planning on found the 5k on Castaway Cau but I'm worried I'll be cutting it close to finish and making it to our port adventure at 10am. I haven't done the 5k before do would appreciate any info.

Yes, trying to be somewhere by 10 would be cutting it close. If I remember right, we met at 8:30, off the boat by 9, and by the time we took a pic with Goofy and walked to the start line, it was 9:30, maybe even a bit later.

Hope that helps!

We inquired about this on the first CC stop of our Double Dip. The CM doing the run said it would be no problem, to talk to youth activities. We did - a few times - and they acted like we were speaking another language. We finally decided to just drop them off at Scuttle's Cove right at 9am if they wouldn't let us a few minutes early, and then head to the start line and start a few minutes late.

Ultimately my husband wasn't feeling well so I did it myself, but we didn't leave the start line until about 9:10am.

I got no medal, but did get a certificate delivered to my room. I did the run on 8/14 on the Dream Double Dip.

No medal??? That's my only incentive to do it

The number/bib is my souvenir instead, and actually has a cuter logo than the shirt.

Thanks for the info about child care. We will have to just see how it works out. Bummer you didn't get a medal...that's a little discouraging. Oh well... It will be fun, however!

So happy that they've swapped my itinerary to one that goes to CC.
I ran this back in the dark ages when there was no form of incentive other than your own pride of accomplishment, so I've been wanting to do it again for the shirt.

It's not a medal it's a plastic Mickey head- nothing like any of the races in WDW of course, this is just for fun.

Just out of curiosity, would anyone be willing to actually PAY for the CC 5k if they offered it as a port adventure that you schedule in advance and included the tshirt and an actual nice medal or medallion like they do in the runDisney races? I think I would be willing to pay for it to guarantee my shirt size and definitely get a nice medal or medallion.
