    1st time cruise goer here. Are the restaurants on Castaway Cay part of the cruise package pricing? Or are they an extra charge?

    Welcome aboard, Jo Anna! Hooray for you for beginning to look into your very first sailing with Disney Cruise Line! I can't wait for you to experience all of the magic that is in store!

    Castaway Cay is Disney's private island in the Bahamas, exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. The beautiful beaches, exciting events and activities, delicious dining and relaxing atmosphere make for one of the best days of your cruise, for sure! You'll be happy to know that while there are lots of extras available to purchase or book on the island, so much of it is included in the cost of your sailing, so you can easily go without spending another dime! Cookies BBQ and Cookies Too! BBQ are the two restaurants on the Family Beach at Castaway Cay, and both are included in the cost of your cruise! Help yourself to lunch there anytime during the lunch hours. And your kids will adore that even on Castaway Cay they can enjoy unlimited soft serve ice cream!!! The adult exclusive beach, Serenity Bay, on the island also has a lunch spot, Serenity Bay BBQ, again included in the cost of your sailing. Of course, there are bars around the island should you want to treat yourself to a specialty drink, alcoholic or not, and those do carry additional charges.

    You'll have plenty of included activities all day like waterslide fun at Pelican Plunge, In Da Shade Games, Character Dance Parties, Spring-A-Leak water fun, Scuttle's Cove Youth Club and other included activities. But, if you want even more adventure, check out the Port Adventures that Disney offers. We especially enjoy renting bikes as there's a great bike path to explore the island, or snorkel gear since the snorkel lagoon is really something to experience! 

    Have fun planning your trip, Jo Anna!
