    We have kids ages 7, 11, 12, 15 for our upcoming cruise. All kiddos want to parasail, but I read age 8 is a requirement? Is there anyway to accommodate our entire party? The 7 yo is taller and weighs more than the 11 yo. Assuming weight reqt is for solo?

    Ahoy Allyson, and welcome to planDisney! I know the anticipation is building for your upcoming adventure on Disney Cruise Line. Parasailing is on the to-do list for me and my tween, so I am excited for you and your family.

    The minimum age for parasailing on Castaway Cay is 8 years old. The minimum allowable weight is 96 lbs, and the maximum is 375 lbs. If Guests want to ride in tandem, the combined weight cannot exceed 375 lbs. The Captain makes the final decisions for safety reasons. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult age 18 or older. Participating children aged 13 to 17 who are not parasailing with an adult must be escorted to Marge's Barges by a parent or legal guardian. Unfortunately, your 7-year-old will not be able to parasail during this cruise.    My planDisney pal Amanda has suggested that a good place to possibly watch parasailing is back on the DisneyWish from Chip' n Dale's Pool on Deck 14.

    While on Castaway Cay, don't forget to stop by Cookie's BBQ or Cookies Too for a buffet lunch, spend some time snorkeling, and take a break from the beach in In Da Shade Game Pavilion.

    Happy Sailing!
