    We are heading to Halloween on the High Seas next month!! Last time we cruised, we were so busy on Castaway Cay that we didn't have much time to explore. Are there any trails to explore on our own?

    Welcome aboard, Beth Ann! In just a few short weeks, your whole family will be heading out to sea with Disney Cruise Line for a spooky treat: a Halloween on the High Seas sailing! I'm so excited for you!

    Disney's private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, is one of my favorite places in the world. Since you've been there before, you know what I'm talking about! Many times, my family doesn't book a Port Adventure at all on Castaway Cay because there is so much already included in the cost of our cruise, to keep us busy all day there! But, of course, Disney does offer some really great Port Adventures there.

    I'm happy to tell you that there are trails to explore with bikes at Castaway Cay. You can either pre-book your bikes as a Port Adventure, or simply walk up to the bike rental booth when you're ready to ride that day and rent then. There are plenty of bikes of all sizes available for kids, adults, and with child seats or with training wheels, and of course, bike helmets are there too. My family and I love riding the relaxing bike trail that leads throughout the island. Be sure to take the bike loop, but stop halfway through at the observation tower. Climb those stairs for the best view of the whole island! Then, head back on your bikes to continue the loop. Next, ride out the old airstrip toward Serenity Bay and head right. There is another lesser known bike path out there that heads along the other side of the island and at the end is a beautiful photo spot by the beach.

    You'll really enjoy exploring the beauty of Disney's private island by bike on the trails, Beth Ann. No need to bring a water bottle either, because there are water stops throughout the trails! Have a magical cruise next month!
