    While on Castaway Island do the bicycle rides include bikes with training wheels? Can we reserve those ahead of time?

    Hi there, Cynthia!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to “sea” that you will soon be headed to Disney’s Private Island, Castaway Cay!  Soft, sandy beaches…crystal-clear water…Mickey Mouse and friends…. what more could you ask for?!?! I hope you are ready for a week at sea that you won’t soon forget!

    Castaway Cay is such a great destination for Disney Cruise Line Guests!  Everything you could need or want is there and you can choose to enjoy a leisurely day on the beach, or you can stay busy with the fun and exciting activities they will have planned for your day there!  My family’s day at Castaway Cay always starts out with my husband and I dropping our boys off at Scuttle’s Cove as we make our way to the Castaway Cay 5K starting line!  Then, after we get our run in for the day, we find our spot for the day on the Castaway Family beach, grab some rafts and floats and enjoy the water and the view!  We do enjoy renting bicycles for an afternoon ride (especially after an indulgent and delicious barbecue lunch) and exploring the island, making certain to head to the Observation Tower for an exceptional view of the island and beyond!  You can most certainly find bicycles of all sizes and there are plenty of bicycles equipped with training wheels for those little Mouseketeers!  No need to pre-reserve them as they have plenty and you can just specify your needs when you arrive to pick them up!  After exploring the island and enjoying the beach, don’t forget to stop by one of the island’s gift shops where you will find exclusive Castaway Cay merchandise!

    When you are enjoying your day on the beach, be sure to keep your eye out for the onboard photographers as they will be snapping photos!  We have gotten some of the BEST shots from these incredible photographers who really do capture the magic you are experiencing!

    Wishing you a FANTAStic and memorable adventure!  

    Happy Sailing!
