    Is the Extreme Getaway Package at Castaway Cay an all-day excursion? It says 1-hour on the sign-up page but I think it may be a typo.

    Welcome aboard, Jocelyn!

    How exciting to hear that you'll be visiting Castaway Cay in the very near future when you sail with Captain Mickey! Disney's private island is surely one of the top destinations for families. It is difficult to compare it to any other location.

    My family and I enjoyed the Extreme Getaway Package at Castaway Cay several months ago. It is a wonderful 4-in-one day adventure and is quite action packed. You'll surely be busy for the whole day -- and not just for 1 hour. This port adventure will give you and your family an awesome way to explore the island at your own pace. The hour-long bike adventure around the island will get you to points that you could never walk to. It is an easy, flat-trail bike route and you can leisurely check out different view points around Castaway Cay. The sting ray adventure time slot will need to be reserved in advance - so when you are able to do your online check in, try to reserve your slot sooner than later. Similar to biking, the snorkel and tube rentals are available to you all day and do not need to be reserved. You can do this whenever you feel like it throughout the day. Searching for the sunken treasures along Castaway snorkel lagoon was a hit for me and my kids - our underwater camera came in very handy!

    Remember that there is an all-you-care-to-eat Lunch Buffet included for you to enjoy while on the island. They serve lunch from 11-2pm at Cookies BBQ & Cookies BBQ Too, so try to plan your days' activities without missing lunch.

    I hope this helps. Do let us know if you need additional information or need help with planning your magical vacation. We are always glad to add more pixie dust!

    Have a magical voyage, Jocelyn!
