    In Nassau, is going to Atlantis the only option to visiting the island for water park, swim with/pet dolphins and beach time? What are (if any) the other options? Are you able to just pay Atlantis to get in for the day or do you have to go through DCL?

    Hi Liza!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am always happy to see a fellow Texan here and it appEARs that you will soon be heading on the Disney Magic for some fun in the sun.

    Disney Cruise Line offers a lot of wonderful excursions for Guests when they visit different ports of call.  Even when I set off on my own to resEARch a destination, I always find that Port Adventures has already included that exciting opportunity in their list!  They find the best of the best for their Guests and they take care of everything once you’ve decided just which excursion to reserve!  In Nassau, Atlantis is an option for a kind of “all inclusive” opportunity to do and see several things.  But another one of my favorite places in Nassau is Blue Lagoon Island.  Port Adventures offers a variety of options at both locations depending on just what it is that you want to do while there.  Both have the option for a dolphin experience and a lovely beach to visit, but Blue Lagoon does not offer a waterpark.  Both are great ways to spend your day in Nassau.  When you explore the different options, be sure to review the “Know Before You Go” info for all the important details!

    You can always look into booking your own tour or transportation to a location at port, but you will want to ensure that you are back to the ship with plenty of time to spare at the end of your day!  I am always hesitant to do so because I am always nervous all day about making it back resulting in me (and my family) not having as good of a time as we could have!  I’d rather just let Port Adventures do it all for me so all I have to do is show up when and where they tell me to!

    Please come back with any other questions you may have about your upcoming adventure!

    Happy Sailing!
