    Ahoy!! We are setting sail on the Disney Dream would like to know if life vests and/or beach toys (sand pails, shovels, etc) are provided while on excursions in Nassau (Pearl Island) and Castaway Cay? Should I bring my daughter's life vest?

    Ahoy there, Cherissa! Oh my goodness, can you believe how close your Disney Cruise Line adventure is? You can almost count down the minutes!

    Onboard the incredible Disney Dream, you will find floatation vests available for children near the pool, and when you are on the practically perfect Castaway Cay, the vests are available in several different locations convenient to the family beach. 

    Pearl Island, an absolutely stunning little island just a short boat ride from the port, also includes complimentary floatation vests. You'll find them when you arrive on the island.

    As far as beach toys, these are available to purchase, and you can snag them when you arrive at Castaway Cay. There is a package that includes your basic sand toys - pail, shovel, sand molds, etc. I know my grandkids - especially my grandson - are very particular about their beach toys, so if your daughter likes to have a special kind of pail or a particular sand mold, you can bring your own. As long as they don't fall within the parameters of prohibited items, you can bring the things she wants to play with. 

    I hope you have the most amazing voyage, Cherissa!
