    I read that the Castaway Cay package is $26 for a 5 year old. Why is it so much less than a 13 year old? Does it still include biking? Are there bikes small enough for a 5 year old? Do you provide helmets?

    Hi there, Jana!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to “sea” you will be visiting one of my favorite destinations – Disney’s Private Island, Castaway Cay!  My family always looks forward to our day there where we can enjoy soft, sandy beaches and crystal-blue water with the most incredible view!

    I am so happy to hEAR you are already looking at some of the Port Adventures offered at Castaway Cay.  Planning ahead for your day will make it that much more relaxing because you won’t have to wonder what you will do!  And the Castaway Cay Getaway Package is the PERFECT way to do it all!  Float rental, snorkel equipment and bicycle rental will surely allow you to see the island and explore everything it has to offer at a discounted rate!  All packages include bicycle rentals, no matter the age, and there are a variety of bicycle types you can choose from when you go to pick up your bicycles.  There are child sized bicycles and they even have training wheels if needed, as well as helmets for all!  Pricing for the packages is broken down by age, but they do all include the same rentals.  Please note that in order to receive the discounted rate, you need to reserve the Getaway Package before arriving at Castaway Cay – either online or onboard at the Port Adventures desk.  Your Online Check-In and onboard booking window will open 75-days ahead of your voyage, so make sure you’ve noted that date on your calendar so you will be ready to go when that time arrives!  Booking opens at the stroke of midnight (EST), and you can reserve activities and excursions prior to completing your Online Check-In!

    I sure hope you and your family love Castaway Cay as much as my family does!  We are eagerly anticipating booking a voyage that visits Castaway Cay for two days as there is so much to do and enjoy…especially the soft serve and chocolate chip cookies they serve at lunchtime on the island!

    As your planning continues, please come back with any other questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
