To be eligible for the challenge, runners had to complete any Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend race with a distance of 5K or longer this past weekend. Then they had a few days to rest up, relaxing aboard the Disney Dream, before running through paradise (literally)! The voyage also featured special activities, speakers and merchandise designed for the Castaway Cay Challenge participants.
The next Castaway Cay Challenge takes place following the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend during the four-night cruise aboard the Disney Dream departing February 23. Hope to “run” into you there!

Land of “Frozen” Coming to Disney Cruise Line This Summer

In summer 2015, Disney Cruise Line Guests can immerse themselves in the animated hit “Frozen” with brand-new experiences inspired by the film, including a spectacular deck party, a three-song stage show production number, new character meet and greets, storybook adventures ashore and more.

Debuting this summer, on select Disney Magic and Disney Wonder sailings to Europe and Alaska, guests will be transported to the land of “Frozen” when the ship is transformed into a winter wonderland for one day of frozen fun.

You can experience family fun throughout the day with all-new meet and greets and themed experiences, including:

Memorable moments with Anna, Elsa, and for the first time in forever, Kristoff and Olaf

“Anna’s Chase for the Chocolate” scavenger hunt for those who share Anna’s sense of adventure, with a special surprise for finishing the game

“Do You Want to Build a Snowman” activity where kids take on Elsa’s magical powers to make snow and ice

“The Maypole Swirl and Twirl” for families to learn a traditional Scandinavian dance spinning and braiding giant ribbons

“Frozen” themed dining experience, including a menu inspired by traditional Nordic fare and special dishes inspired by the film

 “Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends,” a family-friendly interactive deck party featuring the famous royal sisters of Arendelle and their fun-loving Nordic companions.

Also on the Disney Magic this summer, friends from “Frozen” will make their stage show debut at sea in the Walt Disney Theatre aboard the Disney Magic. In the Disney Cruise Line original production, “Disney Dreams ... An Enchanted Classic,” Anna, Elsa and Olaf join the line up of beloved Disney characters who together teach a young girl the power of her dreams.  

Guests who travel aboard the Disney Magic to Norway will have the opportunity to join exciting new Port Adventures that bring the fairytale setting of Arendelle to life. One signature adventure ashore in Ålesund, Norway, created exclusively for Disney Cruise Line, will immerse Guests in the splendor and charm of Norway, with the help of Anna and Elsa, in an enchanting storybook village.

On the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy this summer, Olaf will be giving warm hugs when he joins Anna and Elsa on their royal tour of the Disney Cruise Line ships. Guests should check their Personal Navigator on the first day of their cruise for special Meet & Greet ticket distribution locations. 

And, with the help of everyone’s favorite snowman, Disney Cruise Line is cooling down Disney Castaway Cay with the addition of Olaf’s Summertime Freeze bar. Serving non-alcoholic specialty frozen drinks, Olaf’s Summertime Freeze opens summer 2015 near the Pelican Point tram stop by Disney Castaway Cay Family Beach.
