    We want to do a few excursions on Castaway Cay, but I am unsure which ones to plan so we have some beach time! Parasailing and snorkeling are top priority. What else do you suggest?

    Welcome back to plan Disney, Judith!

    As Moana would say: “See that line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me.” I don’t know about you, but I am totally beckoned to go to Castaway Cay, Disney private island. Its relaxed vibe and amazing activities mean we have so much to do ashore and what always feels like so little time! So I SEA why you want to maximize every minute you are there with your crew. 

    Oh boy, the Castaway Cay Port Adventures are an absolute treat! Parasailing, snorkeling...you’ve got a great list going there so far! I’ll add a few more for you to consider. Our favorite experiences have been the Castaway Cay Getaway Package, Castaway Ray’s Stingray Adventure, or combine them all in the Extreme Getaway Package. Snorkeling and stingrays and sunshine, oh my! 

    As far as my bucket list, next time I go to Castaway Cay, I’d love to try Parasailing or the Walking and Kayaking Nature Adventure. Then again, I like your idea of leaving some time to chill out on the beach. My favorite pastime is enjoying a Drink of the Day with my toes in the sand while my kids play on the dueling waterslides at Pelican Plunge. 

    My final recommendation is to make sure everyone in your party has input in the selected activities and excursions. Honestly, our most memorable Castaway Cay experiences have been when everyone in the family gets a say in what we do even if it means some time apart. My teens appreciate the independence it gives them, and it gives my husband and me time to head over to the adults-only Serenity Bay for a little while. I call that win-win! 

    In the words of Maui, “You’re welcome” to come back to planDisney with more cruise planning questions. Wishing you a magical day at Castaway Cay and a blissful vacation!
