    How old do you need to be to parasail at castaway cay?

    Hi there, Leanor!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited that you stopped by with your question about visiting one of my favorite destinations, Disney’s Castaway Cay!!!  Where else do you get to enjoy soft, sandy beaches, clear-blue water AND attend a dance party with Mickey and Friends?!?!  My family always looks forward to our stop there and we enjoy every minute of it!

    One thing that we really love about visiting Castaway Cay is that you can make it as leisurely of a day OR as adventurous of a day…it’s simply up to you as to how you want to spend your day!  Disney Cruise Line’s Port Adventures team offers some great options for Guests and one of our favorite activities is renting bicycles and exploring the island as a family!  In addition to some of the “less adventurous” excursions, you can take part in some thrilling and extra-exciting excursions while at Castaway Cay, such as jet skiing or parasailing!  We have yet to try these out due to age restrictions but do see these on our horizon…one day!  Currently the age minimum for the Parasailing (C08) excursion on Castaway Cay is 8 years old, but please also note that there is a minimum weight of 90lbs, too!  I know for certain that my soon-to-be eight-year old will not meet that minimum weight, so I wanted to make sure you were aware of that, too!

    As you continue planning and preparing for your adventure on the high seas, please come back with any other questions you may have!  Wishing you an unforgettable voyage!

    Happy Sailing!
