    at lookout cay can we swim at the front beach where we see the ship if we don't have a cabana?

    Ahoy, Donna! Welcome to planDisney. Halloween on the High Seas, Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point and two stops at Disney Castaway Cay? You have picked a cruise that is practically perfect in every way!

    Lookout Cay is such an enchanting destination! Before returning to the ship, my family and I headed over to the walkway that leads to the Family Cabanas so we could capture a perfect photo of the Disney Fantasy from Mabrika Cove. We could not walk to the beach access points, as they are in the area reserved for Guests renting cabanas. While this may be disappointing news, the Family Beach is absolutely stunning! 

    We went on the Nature Trail to see the namesake lighthouse. At the island's tip, you can see just how far the beach extends. One of the access points to the Nature Trail leads to the beach, which we took to head back to all the Lookout Cay amenities. It was so tranquil, and the pink sand was gorgeous.

    There is so much to do at Lookout Cay. We joined a session at the Goombay Cultural Center to learn about the art and craft of the Junkanoo festivals and even made our own headpieces. We picked the time right before the start of "Rush! A Junkanoo Celebration at Disney Lookout Cay." Spirits were high with this colorful celebration. I think we enjoyed it even more, having just learned a bit about the history of the event and the craftsmanship that goes into the costumes. 

    I also really enjoyed Rush Out Gush Out Water Play. The water was so refreshing and fun! We spent our day at Castaway Cay enjoying the beach, and we spent our time at Lookout Cay exploring everything the new destination offers -- and we still left with stuff we wanted to do.

    You also have some magical plans on board the ship. After your day at Lookout Cay, the evening will be packed with tricks and treats as you enjoy Mickey's Mouse-querade. It's spook-tacular! You also get to party like a swashbuckling buccaneer with Pirate Night on Thursday. Yo ho! Yo ho! So many costumes, so little time. 

    Oh boy, Donna! The more I think about your cruise, the more excited I get for you. Adventure is out there, waiting for you on board Disney Cruise Line.

    If you have any other questions, please sail back by planDisney. We're here for you!
