    How deep is the water in Castaway Cay at Children’s pool?

    Kingsley, welcome back to planDisney! 

    Before you know it, you’ll be snapping a picture with Captain Mickey and Minnie, enjoying unlimited ice cream, and soaking up some vitamin SEA at Disney Castaway Cay – the perfect beach getaway! There are plenty of lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, and crystal-clear water for as far as the eye can see. The island doesn’t have a pool, but it does have sprawling beaches, sparkling water, and plenty of activities for kids of all ages to enjoy. 

    A family favorite is the Pelican Plunge floating platform, located just a short distance from the shore. This water play area has two twisting water slides that plunge into the refreshing lagoon. Guests should be good swimmers and at least 38 inches tall to utilize Pelican Plunge. Smaller Guests between 38-48 inches will be required to wear a complimentary life vest. These are available in child and adult sizes near the Pelican Plunge entrance. You can borrow a life vest and keep it for the entire day. Lifeguards are stationed on the island and in the water to ensure a safe time for everyone.  

    Now, Kingsley, there are plenty of activities that will keep everyone dry while still enjoying some fun in the sun. My family likes to rent bikes for a leisurely sightseeing tour around the island. The entire bike bath is approximately 1.5 miles of flat terrain. We always bike to the observation tower to take a picture of the ship. Before returning to the Bike Rentals stand, stop at Cookies Too BBQ for some soft-serve ice cream to cool off. There are also character appearances, dance parties, and even secured youth programming for your children to enjoy. I know you’re going to have the best time exploring Castaway Cay.

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
