    Hi! we are taking a cruise next june and would like to do some research of all the animals/wildlife we may encounter on Castaway Cay - is there a list somewhere?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Laura!

    I am thrilled that you will be sailing to my favorite island paradise, Disney's Castaway Cay!  My family has made so many magical memories here, I hope you enjoy doing the same.

    Much of the wildlife found on the island is the same you may encounter throughout the Bahamas.  I am not aware of a list of animals that is available to guests visiting Castaway Cay, but a quick search of Bahamian wildlife should give you a good sneak peek!

    During our visits, my family has found stingrays, sea turtles, sea stars and a variety of tropical fish when snorkeling and swimming.  We have also found beautiful birds and lizards as we walked or rented bicycles to explore the islands.

    Disney Cruise Line offers many Port Adventures on Castaway Cay that will help you see all of this wonderful wildlife!  I have found the tour guides to have the best information about the island and all of the wildlife living here.  To get up close and personal with the stingrays, book Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure for your chance to touch and feed them during your visit.  The Glass Bottom Boat Scenic Voyage also gives you the opportunity to explore the waters surrounding the island and help you to see the coral reef environments and all of their inhabitants.

    I hope I have steered you in the right direction as you plan your adventure.  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail.

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
