    Hi there We are on the fantasy going 29 April and port adventures are sold out We wanted to take our friend and godson only 3 years to the beaches any advice as we need to feel safe thanks guys

    Ahoy Robert! Welcome back to planDisney. My pals and I are glad you thought to stop by as you prepare for some Disney vacations in the near future. 

    I'm excited to see that you'll be boarding the Disney Fantasy in just a few weeks! The Disney Fantasy is an absolutely stunning ship and the itineraries that she sails to are just lovely. It won't be long before you will be enjoying the ocean breeze and soft, sandy beaches of the Caribbean. 

    I'm sorry to hear that the Port Adventures you were hoping to book are currently sold out. I do have a few suggestions for you. First, I recommend that you check back a few times a week as your voyage draws near. Guests do change their plans and it may be to your advantage if a Port Adventure becomes available to book. Second, I recommend that you go to the Port Adventures desk once you board the Fantasy to speak with the wonderful Crew Members there. They will let you know if there is anything available to reserve and will also be able to give you suggestions for what they recommend for your three-year-old godson. 

    I have sailed on the same itinerary that you have booked when my youngest child was three. We did not book a Port Adventure when we visited Tortola and decided to take an open-air taxi to a nearby beach (Cane Garden Bay). The beach was very calm and beautiful. There were several taxis just steps away from the port that were readily available to whisk cruise passengers to the beach and back again. The drive was about 15-20 minutes from the port. Our mode of transportation did not have seat belts, and I remember the drive feeling a bit adventurous with a toddler in my lap.

    When it comes to Disney's private island of Castaway Cay, you'll have easy access to the wonderful Castaway Family Beach that you can enjoy with your godson. He may also get really excited about the water play area, Spring-A-Leak (adjacent to the Bike Rentals). My three-year-old definitely did! If your godson is registered for the Youth Activities onboard the cruise ship, he can also check in to Scuttle's Cove on Castaway Cay for some time with the Disney Cruise Line youth counselors on the island. That's the perfect time for any adults in your travel party to visit the adult-exclusive beach, Serenity Bay. If you aren't already familiar with Castaway Cay, I suggest that you take a peek at the map on the website to get the lay of the land. 

    One last note, Robert. The Crew Members at both the Guest Services desk and the Port Adventures desk are very, very helpful. They want you to have a wonderful voyage and great experiences at the ports that you will be visiting. If you share your interests and any concerns you may have with them, they will give you suggestions about how to spend your time off of the ship whether it be on a Port Adventure or while exploring on your own. 

    I wish you a holiday filled with magic and adventure. Please visit planDisney again if we can be of any additional help. 

    Enjoy your cruise, 


    P.S. Be sure to visit the Midship Detective Agency on board so your godson can help solve a mystery while exploring the ship!
