    have they moved the tram stop closer to the ship ondisney's cay?

    Hi Kay!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You're asking about one of my favorite places on Earth: Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! I look forward to spending the day on the island every cruise that stops there! My family loves to snorkel and find the hidden treasures under the sea off Castaway Family Beach! After playing in the sand with my son and eating a yummy BBQ lunch, I love to sit in a lounge chair under a palm tree and read a great book! Now that's my idea of a day in paradise!

    Disney Cruise Line makes traveling around the island a breeze! Once you debark the ship and grab your complimentary beach towels for the day, you'll begin walking a short distance past the Post Office. Only a short distance more, after the Post Office, will be the first tram stop: Kargo Handling Tram Stop. You will be able to board the Kargo Handling Tram which will then make stops at Scuttles Cove Tram Stop and Pelican Point Tram Stop. Both Scuttles Cove and Pelican Point stops are right along the Castaway Family Beach. If you would like to visit the adults-only beach, Serenity Bay, you'll need to transfer trams at the Pelican Point Tram Stop to the Serenity Bay Tram. Then, sit back and relax as the tram takes you to the other side of the island for some adult-only tranquility on Serenity Bay!

    Kay, take a look at the interactive map at the bottom of Castaway Cay's webpage to see where each tram stop is located. If you or a member in your family might need assistance getting to that initial tram stop after debarking the ship, I recommend stopping by the Guest Services Desk (or Port Adventures Desk) onboard and speaking with the helpful Cast Members! They may be able to give you the specific distance and/or assistance to the Kargo Handling Tram Stop!
