    What's included at the Castaway Cay stop on the Disney Cruise Lines?

    Welcome aboard, Andrew!

    Disney's Private Island, Castaway Cay, is one of my favorite spots in the world. With its sparkling water and stretches of beautiful sandy beaches, plus activities and events to keep you busy all day, it will be your favorite port of call on your sailing too! So much is included in your port stop there. Activities take place all day long. From character dance parties to crab races, a family archeological whale dig site, Pelican Plunge water sliding fun, sports areas, Scuttle's Cove kids club, and plenty of loungers to relax in the sun or the shade, you'll be as busy or as relaxed as you'd like.

    Besides the activities and events that are included, and will be listed that day in your Personal Navigator or on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App, all guests can dine at one of three restaurants included on the island. Cookies BBQ, Cookies Too, and the Serenity Bay BBQ (on the 18+ beach, Serenity Bay). Lunch begins from 11:30 until 2:00, so you can dine when you're hungry. And then again if you'd like! My kids love the soft serve ice cream stations that serve free ice cream throughout the day too.

    With so much included in the cost of your cruise during your Castaway Cay Day, you can easily go the whole day without spending a dime. However, there are some fun extras if you'd like to make the day even more magical. Plenty of Port Adventures are available at Castaway Cay. My family loves snorkeling (look out for some cool underwater Hidden Mickey's!), renting bikes to tour the island's bike paths, and interacting with the stingrays at Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure. But, take a look at all of the other Port Adventures and see if there's one that sounds like a must-do for your family!

    Have fun planning your Castaway Cay day, Andrew!
