    So I know that the sting ray excursion is for 5 year olds, my son turns 5 the day after we are at Castaway Cay, do you think there will be any wiggle room for a 24 hours age difference?

    Welcome aboard, Brandi! I'm excited to hear that your family is heading to Castaway Cay with Disney Cruise Line soon! Disney's private island is one of my favorite places in the world, and I'm sure you're going to discover how magical it is when you spend the day there too!

    Disney Cruise Line's Port Adventures have very strict age restrictions, so you will not be able to book Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure online for your son, as the system will not allow it due to his age that is already registered in his reservation. However, you may want to ask at the Port Adventure desk once you're onboard the ship, as that one day age difference is so close. It's a great adventure right there on the beaches of Castaway Cay, and since there are time slots available for it throughout the entire day, there are usually some openings left for that adventure, even if you don't book until you're onboard. We've even been able to walk up that day on the beach to book that particular adventure! It sure is amazing to touch the stingrays and allow them to eat right from our hands!

    No matter what you decide to do during your day at Disney's private island, you're in for such a wonderful time. My kids love the character dance parties, splashing at Spring-a-Leak, flying down the slides at Pelican Plunge, and the free soft serve all day. Renting bikes is so much fun so that your family can explore the island, even climbing all the way up to to the top of the observation tower for a gorgeous 360 degree view! And of course, the kids adore Scuttle's Cove, where they can play games with the counselors while my husband and I sneak away to relax at Serenity Bay, the 18 and over beach. I promise you won't lack for activities at Castaway Cay, Brandi!

    Have fun planning!
