    We will be heading on the Disney Dream in July. We have not booked any excursions for Castaway Cay. My husband and I will be traveling with our two children (our daughter is 10 and our son is 6). Any tips or suggestions for what to do while at Castaway Cay

    Ahoy Christina –
    Your crew only has a couple of months to go until your “Dream”y cruise with Disney Cruise Line. How exciting! My crew enjoyed the Dream a few months ago and it was the most fun packed weekend we ever had. The culmination of our journey had to be the visit to Castaway Cay. We just love the white powdery sand beach, the crystal blue waters and the gentle breeze caressing our skin. Our crew is plenty happy to just grab a hammock and “chill out” on the beach while the kids enjoy building sandcastles, finding sea shells and burying themselves in the sand. That being said, we have enjoyed some of the excursions the island has to offer, and compared with other ports, the prices are better. A must for your family is snorkeling. Even for beginners, Snorkel Lagoon is easy, pleasant and it is not necessary to be a swimmer to enjoy it. Other fun things to do are the tube rentals, bicycling and hiking/nature adventures. The glass bottom boat ride is educational and good for all ages, and the stingray excursion is very popular. Christina, you have so much to choose from with Port Adventures with Disney Cruise Line, I hope that I was able to steer you in the right direction. Thanks again for sailing by for a visit here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
