    Hi, Does anyone know if there are any complimentary activities at Castaway island? Thanks! Michelle

    Hi Michelle!

    I'm happy to answer your question about my favorite place to visit on a Disney Cruise - Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! It's a gorgeous location with amazing amenities, and my family loves spending time in this tropical paradise.

    When it comes to all that's included during your visit to Castaway Cay, you'll be happy to know that there's plenty to do at no extra cost. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided, as well as a delicious all-you-care-to-enjoy lunch at Cookie's BBQ and Cookie's Too. Lunch is also served at Serenity Bay BBQ on the 18+ private beach, Serenity Bay. Lunch service is from 11:30am - 2:00, with no assigned times to dine, so you can enjoy the island at your own pace!

    There will be fun activities scheduled throughout the day, for guests of all ages. On our recent visit to the island, there was a Character Dance Party, Basketball Free Throw competition, Ping Pong Tournament, lots of Character Greetings, Family Whale Dig, and more. Any runners in the family? Guests ages 10 and up can participate in the Castaway Cay 5K. Simply stop by the Port Adventures Desk or Guest Services to sign up for this free event prior to your arrival at Castaway Cay. Each day, you'll receive a Personal Navigator - a detailed schedule of all the fun events and activities happening throughout the day. All the activities on Castaway Cay will be listed with times and locations. I encourage you to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App on your smartphone - you can save activities to a "favorites" list, and receive reminders so you don't miss any "must-do" events!

    Make sure to check out the Port Adventures available at Castaway Cay - though offered at an additional cost, you might find something perfect for your family! We love renting bicycles to tour the island.

    I hope this helps with your planning. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
