    During day at Castaway Cay is it possible to fit in Glass Bottom Boat Scenic Voyage, Parasailing & some time at the beach with a tube rental. How would you schedule this day/transport between/meals? Where can we eat?

    Hi Crystal - 

    Castaway Cay is full of family infused fun and only the lucky Disney Cruise guests get to visit this jewel destination. Cruisers of all ages will have lots to do and there's loads of magical memories to be made.

    Your port adventures and activities while at Castaway Cay can be timed throughout the day, so that you can definitely squeeze in as much fun as you want. Once the ship docks in the morning at around 8:30, you can hop off the ship onto the island. All aboard times may vary, but it is usually around 4:30/4:45pm or so in the afternoon.  Most of the activities that you are interested in are well within a 5 minute walking distance from each other (depending on how fast you walk). The Glass Bottom Boat Scenic Voyage is an hour long excursion and is scheduled throughout the day - depending on weather and tide conditions. You might want to reserve a spot early, to make sure you can efficiently schedule in your other activities. The Parasailing adventure is also an hour long session and is quite exhilarating! Both activities have a meeting and starting point right by Marge's Barge, so you're already there.

    A bountiful lunch is included during your day visit to Castaway Cay. It is an all-you-care-to-eat BBQ at Cookies BBQ or Cookies too. That too is nearby and lunch is served buffet style. After a good meal, you can relax on a tube out on the beach for the rest of the afternoon. Now, that's a vacation!

    Bon voyage!
