Welcome to Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas! The MAGIC is felt all around the island. You are in for a wonderful day of family (or adult) fun!
Your Disney Cruise Ship will dock early in the morning and crew will unload food, drinks, and essentials for the day on the island. Guests will hear an announcement when the gangways are open, which is around 8:30 am. While you wait for the announcement, grab breakfast at the buffet or the dining room, get some coffee, and enjoy the beautiful views. FYI, when the announcement is made, the gangways will be very busy.
Photo Op Locations –
Character Meet & Greets –
The character meet and greet times, as well as locations, will be available in your Navigator App. They are typically throughout the morning. Photographers will be available on the island for photos. If you purchase and unlimited Photo Package, take advantage of all of the photo ops. Captain Jack Sparrow makes an appearance on the island for photos, as well.
Family Beaches –
The first beach that you’ll reach on the island, is the family beach. There are lots of loungers, umbrellas, and shade trees. This area does fill up, as it is closest to the ship.
Pelican Plunge & More Family Beach areas –
Continue on the path, past the first set of beaches, and you will see Pelican Plunge in the water. So much fun for the kids (must be 38″ tall to ride).
Scuttle’s Cove (Kid’s Club for 3-12 Year Old’s on the Island) –
Check the Navigator App for Hours of Operation and activities at Scuttle’s Cove.
Serenity Bay – 18+
Get ready for a relaxing day at the beautiful area of Serenity Bay, the adults-only beach at Castaway Cay. It’s the furthest beach from the dock area, so I do recommend taking the complimentary shuttle. Buffet lunch is served (complimentary), and even includes seafood and steak.
Cookies Too! Buffet Lunch on the Island
A delicious BBQ Lunch is served on the island. Coke products form the fountain are complimentary. Check the Navigator App for the times that lunch is served. There are two locations.
Wagons, Strollers, & Wheelchairs, & Life Jackets are available
First come, first serve (complimentary use)
Shopping & Refreshments of Plenty
Enjoy your magical day at Castaway Cay!
