    Hi Moms, On Castaway Cay, I see there is Scuttle's Cove for the littlest kids, Spring-a-Leak for kids and the Teen Hideout for teens 14-17. Which of these areas would be for tweens ages 11-13? Would that be Spring-a-Leak? Thank you!

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ingerlise!

    Your high seas adventure is just around the corner.  I am excited for you to have so much fun during your vacation thanks to all your careful planning for your family.  I "sea" nothing but smooth sailing for you!

    Castaway Cay is my favorite stop when sailing the Bahamas with Captain Mickey.  With so many great things to do on Disney's private island, my family has had many "best days ever" here!  On our last visit to the island, my son was twelve and was spending time in the tween club Edge while onboard for the first time.  Once we arrived at the island, we weren't sure where to direct him when he wanted some time to himself.

    Pirates-in-Training that are 11 or 12 years old are still welcome in Scuttle's Cove.  My son, however, wasn't interested in this sandy spot with his sister this time.  We also found that Spring-a-Leak was really a splash pad type play area aimed toward a younger crowd. 

    We spoke to the Cast Members and the tween club really doesn't extend on to Castaway Cay.  It was recommended he visit the Teen Hideout and he could ask to join in their activities like beach volleyball if he would like.  He actually ended up connecting with his friends from Edge and they spent the afternoon with us at Pelican Plunge.  I would recommend your tweens try to make plans to meet up with their friends from the ship at the Teen Hideout area and then head to the beach or In Da Shade game pavilion to enjoy some time on the island together.  They can also use the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to keep in touch using the chat feature!

    Sail back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before your cruise, Ingerlise!  We love to help you navigate all of your plans!

    Bon voyage!  Angie
