    Saw that the family cabanas have quickly sold out for upcoming cruise aboard Disney Magic. Are there other options once we arrive or places to rent umbrellas? I have a family of 5. Thanks!

    Hi Veronica! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What an adventure you have awaiting you onboard the Disney Magic.  My family loves cruising on the Disney Magic and especially love our time spent on the beautiful and pristine Castaway Cay.  You can’t beat lounging on the beach or splashing in the water with the Disney Magic as your backdrop!  

    Castaway Cay does haven a limited number of Cabanas available to reserve for your time on the island.  Since they are limited, sometimes they are hard to snag one.  But don't worry as there are plenty of complimentary lounge chairs and umbrellas available for you on the beach! Life jackets and snorkel equipment can also be picked up near the lifeguard stands for your use.  

    Be sure you check out other Port Adventures available at Castaway Cay including parasailing, stingray encounters and bicycle rentals.  The Castaway Cay 5K is also a fun experience and will give runners - or walkers - a quick 3.1 mile tour of the island.  You can register for the race onboard at Guest Services; but don’t delay as spots will fill up.  If you have little ones too small to participate, you can drop them off at Scuttle’s Cove, Castaway Cay’s Youth Club on the island before you start.  

    Don’t leave Castaway Cay without stopping by one of the two specialty gift shops where you can find exclusive Castaway Cay merchandise only available for purchase on the island.  

    Happy Sailing, Veronica!
