    Do we have to book a beach port adventure to be able to enjoy the Disney beach area?

    Ahoy, Ashlee! I’m so glad you swung by planDisney before you set sail for Disney Castaway Cay!

    What I love about Disney’s private island is that you don’t need to plan a thing to have a wonderful beach day! There are plenty of lounge chairs under shady beach umbrellas and a white sandy coastline for as far as the eye can see. It truly is an island paradise!

    Trams take you around the island, so you can easily find your dream beach spot. Best of all, your favorite shipboard amenities move to the island for the day! There's no need to dash back to the ship for lunch because a mouthwatering BBQ meal awaits you right by the beach. Even Disney photographers are on hand to capture your smiles with Mickey and his fun-loving crew in their beach attire. 

    Besides soaking up some vitamin SEA at Castaway Cay, you can dive into a ton of fun activities. From table games to digging for buried treasure (okay, maybe just whale bones), twisting water slides, nature walks, and more! You can rent inner tubes and floats before you set sail or once you’re on the island. If you’re looking for adventure, rent bikes and climb the observation tower for a bird’s-eye view of the island and a great picture of your Disney ship. 

    I know you’ll have oceans of fun exploring this island paradise! So, pack your sunscreen, grab your sand toys, and prepare to make memories that'll last a lifetime!

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
