    At Castaway Cay are there rental umbrellas or cabanas and is so what are the prices. Would we be able to go back and forth from ship to Cay during the day?

    Ahoy, Evelyn!
    Picture yourself on a white sandy beach in front of the most beautiful turquoise water you've ever seen with your Disney ship as your backdrop....doesn't that sound heavenly! A day on Disney Castaway Cay will definitely be a highlight of your Disney Cruise vacation. You can absolutely go back and forth during your day on the island, but since Disney leaves no stone unturned, it's not necessary. There are plenty of complimentary umbrellas, lounge chairs and beach chairs scattered throughout the beach areas. There are a limited number of cabanas that can be reserved online once your booking window opens up. These cabanas are quite popular and are typically very hard to get. If one is available, you will be able to reserve it in the "My Cruise Activities" section of the Disney Cruise Line website under "Castaway Cay Port Adventures." The cabanas on the family beach run $550.00 to $600.00 depending on the time of year (pricing always subject to change). These hold a maximum of six Guests. The adult-only cabanas on Serenity Bay Beach are around $400.00. There is a Grand Family Cabana for 10 Guests (up to 16 for an additional price) for around $950.00. If you don't have any luck reserving one when your online booking opens, continue to check up to three days prior to sailing and once aboard at the Port Adventure Desk
    And so you know a delicious barbecue lunch is served on the island at Cookie's and Cookies Too! There are also drink stations, ice cream and bar service (for an additional fee) for your convenience! 
    I'm so excited for you to visit this tropical paradise, Evelyn! Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
