    Are life jackets available on cruise ship and castaway cay for children under the age of 5? Specifically snorkeling for an almost 5 year old?

    Welcome to planDisney Kira!

    Life jackets are available for guests of all ages when swimming on any of the Disney Cruise Line ships as well as on Castaway Cay. Captains Mickey and Minnie want to keep everyone, especially our littlest swimmers, safe!

    Snorkeling equipment is available for guests aged 5 and older. When reading through all the Port Adventures, you will see age requirements listed. I hope your little one will still have fun in the beautiful water for some splashing good times! 

    When my kids were that age, they really enjoyed riding bikes and peddling around the island. It is a really fun way to explore! Bike rental is available on the island. Rental time is one hour which is just about the perfect amount of time to peddle your way through the pathways. 

    While on Castaway Cay, you will enjoy a delicious lunch at Cookies BBQ! Feast on burgers, chicken, and don't forget to get a chocolate chip cookie for dessert! Yum!

    Wishing you a magical voyage!

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!
