    Hello! I know that my family will have access to Disney Castaway Island on the specified day in our itinerary. However, do I need to book a port adventure at Nassau for my family to access and enjoy swimming at the beach

    Welcome to planDisney Annabelle!

    If you are looking for a perfect beach day, then Castaway Cay is the place to be! This island paradise is exclusive to guests of Disney Cruise Line. During your Castaway Cay day, you will enjoy sandy beaches, beach chairs and umbrellas, and even beach towels. Everything you need for a day in the sun will be waiting for you. Even lunch will be served at Cookie's BBQ, complete with chocolate chip cookies for dessert. (My secret tip - stop by the soft serve machines to add ice cream to your cookie!)

    For an additional charge, you may choose to rent snorkel equipment, inner-tubes or floats, or rent a bike to explore the island. Check the Port Adventures to see all that is available on Castaway Cay. 

    If you would like to enjoy a beach day while in Nassau, you will definitely want to book a Port Adventure. Head to Atlantis for their water park or try a Blue Lagoon Beach day. If you are feeling adventurous, try a swim with the dolphins excursion! Port Adventures may be booked ahead of time or stop by the Port Adventures Desk once on the ship. 

    Some guests opt to stay on the ship when at port, and that is just fine! Swimming pools and dining locations will be open for all to enjoy. The ship is less busy on port days, so enjoy some extra space on deck if you stay onboard. 

    Wishing you calm waters and sunny skies during your magical Disney Cruise!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
