    We are going on the Disney fantasy in 2 weeks! I really wanted to book a banana boat ride on Castaway Cay for my 2 older kids but it doesn’t show as an option for my younger daughter. My kids are 7 and 9. Do they allow kids that are 7 to ride with an adult

    Welcome back, Caroline! It's almost time to set sail! In just over a week, your family will be out for a magical adventure on the Disney Fantasy in the warm waters of the Caribbean! What magic is in store!

    Castaway Cay is one of my family's favorite places in the world. There's just no place quite like Disney's private island paradise. We have had visits there when we've done multiple Port Adventures and visits when we've just spent the day relaxing and exploring the island. You just can't go wrong with either option!

    The Banana Boat Thrill Ride is surely an adventure to experience! My family is similar to yours in that my son is the youngest but the biggest thrill seeker. He's always one to jump at the chance to experience at a younger age a big thrill that my older daughter wouldn't do at all. I'm sorry to say though, that this adventure is limited to children ages eight and up. The Port Adventures are strict on age guidelines and, as you're finding during your online check-in, the system will not even allow you the option to add a guest outside of the age restriction. But, since this is a shorter adventure on Castaway Cay, perhaps you can allow your younger daughter to enjoy some wet and wild fun with the counselors at Scuttle's Cove while the others head out on this ride. Then, pick her up and take her out for another fun adventure - snorkeling in the Snorkel Lagoon, a relaxing bike ride to explore the island, or even Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure. There are plenty of adventures that include younger children, Caroline, so I hope you can do both!

    Enjoy every moment of this exciting trip!
