    Tried so hard to get a Family Cabana at Castaway Cay but they were sold out- we went on the second we could but no luck. Any advice? We sail in November. Thanks so much Kelsey

    Ahoy, Kelsey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for stopping by! Your upcoming voyage to paradise is right around the corner! Soon you'll be onboard and checking your Personal Navigator newsletter, or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app, for all the fun scheduled each day.

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be sailing aboard an itinerary that makes a magical stop at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay; it's my favorite port of call! I'm sorry you weren't able to grab a private cabana. They get scooped up faster than the Mickey Waffles during the breakfast buffet at Cabanas!? I suggest checking back online periodically to see if a family's plans have changed, resulting in one becoming available! If it's embarkation day and you still don't have a private cabana, definitely stop by the Guest Services Desk once onboard to see if any private cabanas have become available!

    Kelsey, even if your pirate crew isn't able to reserve a private cabana on Castaway Cay, don't worry! You will find plenty of beach chairs and loungers shaded by large umbrellas or swaying palm trees. You will still have such a relaxing and fun time during your island getaway.

    I'll be sending you tons of pixie dust in the hopes that a private cabana becomes available prior to your cruise! I hope you and your family have an unforgettable high-seas adventure!
