    My son is 11 and would like to go parasailing on Castaway Cay. He only weighs 71lbs. It says there is. 90 lb min weight. Can you ride tandem if they are less than 90 lbs?

    Welcome back, Amy! Parasailing on Castaway Cay will provide such a great view of that beautiful island, I'm so glad you are considering that exciting Port Adventure!

    I spoke with an agent at Disney Cruise Line to find out how the weight limits work for that particular adventure. Children under age 13 must ride tandem, no matter their weight, so your son will need to ride with someone else. As long as the combined weight of the two of them falls between 90 and 375 pounds, they are all set to parasail. I hope you both get to experience an amazing ride with some great views around Disney's private island. I've never seen Castaway Cay from that perspective before, but can only imagine it will be a really neat experience!

    Have fun as you continue to plan, Amy!
