    Can I book the castaway cay getaway package but not use the bikes? I just want to snorkel and rent a tube. Can you snorkel and use the tubes on the same beach?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Michael! 

    I’m so happy you sailed by with your question. Can you believe it? You’re only a few weeks away from your Disney Cruise Line vacation. Disney Castaway Cay is the perfect beach getaway – plenty of lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, and crystal-clear water for as far as the eye can see. It truly is an island paradise!

    The Castaway Cay Getaway Package (C05) includes snorkel equipment, a float or inner-tube rental, and a one-hour bike rental. You can use these amenities at your leisure. I usually like to scout out a beach chair and umbrella, drop off our towels and pick up our floats and snorkel gear. There’s nothing quite as relaxing as listening to the distant sound of Caribbean music as your float bobs up and down on the ocean waves. 

    Michael, you don’t have to use the bike rental part of the package. But if you find yourself with a little bit of free time in the afternoon, I encourage you to give it a try. It’s a lovely way to see the island at your own pace. The terrain is flat, and there are several coolers of water along the path. My family likes to bike to the observation tower and take a picture of the ship. The entire bike bath is approximately 1.5 miles. Before you drop off your bike, stop at Cookies Too BBQ for a soft-serve ice cream cone to cool off.  

    Your Disney Cruise Line voyage will be here before you know it. If there is anything else we can help you with, please feel free to float by with your question. We are always delighted to help!

    SEAS the adventure!
