    What is the best month to take a cruise for the most reasonable rate and is any thing at Castaway Cay included in the price of the cruise (food, etc.)

    Hi Tamela,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel - you've come to the right place if you're considering a Disney Cruise!  In my experience, I have found the most reasonable rates during the months of September and January, and the months of November and February are reasonable as well if you are traveling in the first few weeks.  I explained my favorites months to sail HERE.

    On Castaway Cay your lunch will be provided, including soda fountain beverages and soft serve ice cream!  If you want a specialty drink from one of the bars (including non-alcoholic beverages) - these will be added to your shipboard account.

    You have complimentary use of the games at Grouper Game Pavillion.  This shaded pavillion features foosball, ping-pong, pool, shuffleboard, basketball, golf wiffleball—even monster chess and checkerboards.  You can also play classic sand sports at Goofy's Sand Lot nearby. 

    There are plenty of beach chairs, hammocks and umbrellas that are available for you to enjoy during the day - and use of Pelican Plunge (floating waterslides) and Spring a Leak (toddler splash ground) are all included as well.

    Good luck with your decision!
