    I see that we can bring our own snorkeling equipment and must use Disney's yellow life vest. Do we have to snorkel in the family section only or are we allowed to snorkel at the adult only section? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Christopher!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is almost here! I know the excitement is building for what is to come aboard the beautiful Disney Dream!  Make certain you don’t miss the new ‘Beauty and the Beast’ live show!  I have not yet seen it, but hEAR it’s just fantastic!

    You are going to love Castaway Cay!  Soft sandy beaches, cool blue water PLUS fun activities, entertainment and Character Greetings!!  What more can you ask for?!?  There is so much to do on the island; I am always disappointed when my day there is over!  One of these days, I am going to sail an itinerary that double-dips at Castaway Cay so I can experience it all twice!

    Castaway Cay is home to some incredible sea life and snorkeling allows you to experience and see it all!  You are welcome to bring your own equipment, but all snorkelers must wear a life vest while snorkeling.  The best opportunity for some great snorkeling is in the Snorkeling Lagoon near the family beaches, although you are welcome to snorkel elsewhere.  As always, follow any instruction from lifeguards in the event current rules change without notice.  The adult-exclusive beach, Serenity Bay, is lovely, but not home to the best sea life.  I recommend snorkeling in the Lagoon and then relaxing at Serenity Bay so you can experience both in the best possible way!

    As your day winds down on the island, don't forget to stop by one of the two gift shops to pick up exclusive Castaway Cay merchandise before heading back to the ship!

    Wishing you just the BEST time on your DREAM vacation!  The countdown is on!!

    Happy Sailing!
