    Hello! Thanks for answering my last 2 questions. On CC, our hull snorkling adventure is scheduled for 9am. I want to book bike and tube rental for afternoon but only 8am is available. Can we use them anytime during the day or does it have to be at 8?

    Hi there, Anissa!

    Ahoy and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your DREAMy Disney Cruise Line vacation will be here before you know it!!  My own family is embarking on the Disney Wonder the same day you set sail, so I know how busy these last couple weeks are getting everything packed and planned!  But, rest assured, once you get onboard all the stress goes away and the real fun starts!  

    My family LOVES renting bicycles when we visit Castaway Cay!  We started out renting bicycles for just my husband and I when our boys were too itty bitty to sit in a child seat…and then we moved to the child seat bikes…then bicycles with training wheels…and now we all get our own bicycle – without training wheels!!  We have the best time exploring the island, always making a special point to visit the Observation Tower for a great photo opportunity and view!  And, to be completely honest, we have NEVER rented bicycles prior to getting to the island!  We have always just stopped by the bike barn and rented them there, on the spot!  We have never once had a problem with this and prefer to do it this way so that we can see how our day goes and go when it works best for us.  So, my recommendation to you would be to do the same, which gives you the flexibility to go when you want to, spacing out your time on the island!  I honestly do not foresee you running into any issues with being able to get a bicycle – at some point in the day as they are plentiful!  That being said, I do recommend booking other excursions at Castaway Cay ahead of time as those are more limited and often have timed departures.

    Anissa, I hope this information and prior experience helps guide you in planning your day at Castaway Cay!  It is always one of my favorite stops when sailing with Captain Mickey and know you will enjoy it too!

    The countdown is on…have the best time!

    Happy Sailing!
