    What should we bring to Castaway Cay and is it worth it to book any of the excursions?

    Ahoy, Paula!
    It's just about time for you to hEAR the magical words, "Welcome Aboard" as you enter the gorgeous Grand Lobby Atrium and kick off your Disney Cruise vacation. One of "minnie" highlights of your sailing will be your visit to Disney's island paradise, Castaway Cay. This tropical oasis is my family's favorite port of call, and we love spending a relaxing day enjoying the sights and sounds of the island. You'll want to bring along sunscreen, your camera, Key to the World card and picture I.D. for those 18 and older as you disembark. Disney Cruise Line will provide towels on the pier, so you'll just need to grab a few as you walk by. A delicious barbecue lunch is served on the island buffet style, and you'll find ice cream and fruit as well. Sand toys are available for purchase at the shops located ashore, but you are welcome to bring your own. There are a few local merchants with items for sale that takes cash only, but everywhere else is cashless and will accept your Key to the World card. 
    There is plenty to experience on the island, but if you want to plan something for your crew to do, I suggest the Castaway Cay Getaway Package. This Port Adventure is a 3-1 allowing you the option to snorkel to see some spectacular marine life, relax on a float in the calm Caribbean waters and discover some of the natural beauty of the island on a bike ride. There is no set time for the snorkel or bike ride so you can enjoy them at your leisure. 
    I can't wait for you to experience Disney Castaway Cay, Paula! Enjoy counting down the final days until your sailing.
    Bon voyage!
