    Hi! We are currently trying to decide on a new date for our cruise. If we depart from Port Canaveral on March 2, will the waters at Castaway Cay be warm enough for swimming?

    Ahoy, Jillian!

    Thanks so much for sailing back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another excellent question! I'm so excited that you'll be sailing to Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! This tropical paradise will be a delight to all your senses! Whenever we set sail with Captain Mickey on itineraries that visit Castaway Cay, I look forward to our time on the island so much. We'll be sailing there next month and I'm already daydreaming about sinking my toes into the sand!

    We've sailed to Castaway Cay multiple times during the month of March! I'm happy to share with you that the water was chilly at first, but once we started swimming around it felt perfect! One of my favorite things to do on Castaway Cay is snorkel in the snorkeling lagoon off Castaway Cay's Family Beach. Disney Cruise Line offers snorkel gear rentals for Guests while visiting the island, or you are welcome to bring your own gear from home to use in the snorkeling lagoon! Be sure to keep an eye out for hidden Disney treasures under the sea!

    Jillian, I'm wishing you and your family a splashtacular visit to Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! If you have any future questions while planning your upcoming Disney Cruise, please come back and visit us again!
