    I'm hoping to sign my family up for the stingray outing at castaway cay, however, my daughter will be a few months short of being 5 years old (at the time of our cruise). Is Disney pretty strict on the age requirements?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Laura!

    It sounds like you have an adventure to Castaway Cay in your future.  I'm so excited for you to visit my favorite island paradise!

    Disney Cruise Line's number one priority is safety.  This includes the safety of guests during Port Adventures offered on Castaway Cay and all ports the cruise line visits.  Age requirements are enforced to ensure the safety of everyone participating in the adventure.

    My family enjoyed Castaway Cay's Stingray Adventure just after my own daughter turned five.  We had a lot of fun but didn't realize how big the stingrays actually were!  My daughter was scared being in the water with them, and I ended up holding her most of the experience.  Add this adventure to your to-do list on a future cruise when your daughter is older or let her party with the Youth Counselors at Scuttle's Cove while the rest of your family enjoys the stingrays.

    Your four year old princess can join the entire family on the Glass Bottom Boat Scenic Voyage.  There are beautiful reefs and fish to see during this adventure.  My family always rents bicycles on Castaway Cay to explore the island together and ride to the observation tower for a great view of the island.  There are bicycles for riders of all levels and larger bikes with child seats attached if your little one needs to ride with you.  Be sure to cool off anytime during your visit at Spring-a-Leak, a water play area designed just for your little princess!

    Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail, Laura!
