    I am looking for advice for our port adventure in the Bahamas. We have a son, age 5, and a daughter age 8. Is the waterpark worth it for their age? And, Is a cabana recommended?

    Hi Erin!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your upcoming Disney Cruise to paradise will be here before you know it! Your little buccaneers will have so much fun onboard! There are so many activities onboard for kids of all ages. From the innovative Youth Clubs to the Character Experiences each day throughout the ship, they will have a blast with all there is to see and do.

    The fun continues when your Disney Cruise sets sail to each port of call, too! If you're thinking about booking the Atlantis Aquaventure while visiting Nassau, Bahamas, your pirate and pirate princess will have a splashtacular time! In my opinion, not only will your small explorers love all the fun at Splasher's, a treasure chest-themed water playground for kids, but they'll love to explore the aquariums around Atlantis Paradise Island Resort, too. A Private Cabana at Atlantis will give your entire family a shaded and comfortable place to call home while enjoying your day in the waterpark. 

    If you're referring to booking a private cabana on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, you and your family will absolutely love all the luxuries that go along with having your very own private piece of property right on the beach! My pirate crew booked a private cabana during our most recent visit to Castaway Cay and never wanted to leave! The private cabanas are a hot commodity, so I highly recommend booking one as soon as your cruise is paid in full and your advance booking window opens.

    Thanks so much for sailing by! If you think of any future questions, please come back and visit us again!
