    On our upcoming WISH cruise, family members have booked the Extreme Getaway Package at Castaway Cay, but I have not. Will I still be able to get close enough to take pictures of them enjoying this activity, specifically interacting with the stingrays?

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for sailing by planDisney again! It sounds like you and your family have some grand plans for your Disney Cruise Line vacation, so as Mr. Ray says, climb aboard, explorers!

    The Extreme Getaway Package at Disney Castaway Cay is one of my favorite port adventures. Your family will love all that it offers, especially meeting the stingrays. Now, the area immediately surrounding the stingray lagoon is roped off, and in my experience, only Guests registered for the encounter are permitted to enter this area. Depending on your camera, you could stand beyond the ropes and perhaps capture some photos, especially if your family stands at one of the feeding tables located at the end closest to the area near Boat Beach. Of course, you should ask a Crew Member about photo locations as they may have a better recommendation for you. 

    Nancy, I hope that you will be able to experience some of the big blue world, too. I love the Float & Tube rental option. There's nothing more relaxing than floating on the clear waters of Castaway Cay!

    Thanks again for bringing your question to us. Swim back by anytime, and be sure to wave to Rapunzel for me as you make your way back aboard the Disney Wish after your day in paradise!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
