    Are there enough umbrellas at castaway cay or do I need to bring one?

    Hi Freida, 

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for asking us another great question!

    Although I love all of the Disney Cruise Line ships, one of the biggest draws for me is definitely visiting Castaway Cay. I always seek out “double dip” itineraries, ones that stop at Disney Cruise Line’s glorious private island twice! 

    Part of the reason why I love Castaway Cay so much is because of how easy it is to get an umbrella and chairs on the island. Regardless of when I’ve walked off the ship, I haven’t had any problem securing an umbrella in my preferred location. Of course, sometimes when we start our day a bit later on (hey, we’re on vacation and living by island time!) I won’t be able to find an umbrella and seats in the first “row” facing the ocean, but I can always find something good. All this to say, you don’t need to bring an umbrella with you. Just plenty of sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat… and a good book!

    As always, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
