disney castaway cay excursions and activities

Are you sailing on a Disney Cruise and want to know more about Castaway Cay? If you are booked on a Bahamian or Caribbean Disney Cruise it is likely that one of the port stops will be Castaway Cay – so here are lots of resources to help you learn more about it.

Castaway Cay is Disney’s very own private island. When Disney Cruise lines launched their first ship, the Disney Magic, in 1998 they wanted something more to offer their guests. The idea of giving Disney cruise line guests their very own island paradise meant that they had to find somewhere close to their homeport of Port Canaveral.

Once they found the perfect island they had to make it suitable for guests. A huge amount of work was done so that the Disney ships would be able to dock, rather than having to use tender boats. It is so easy to walk on and off the ship to the island.

There are so many things to do – or you can just spend the day at the beach. There are 2 beaches. One is for families, but if you want a quieter beach then you can go to the adults-only beach Serenity Bay.

Everything you need is on the island. There are 2 locations for your lunch buffet – one is at the adult beach and the other has easy access to the family beach. There is no need to go back to the ship for lunch.

Disney’s Castaway Cay really is the perfect place to spend a day.
