    We are wanting to rent bikes but is shows only availability shows 8am on the DCL app. Does that mean you have to pick it up at 8 or is that just reserving a bike and can be picked up at anytime?

    Ahoy there, David, and welcome aboard planDisney, where we set sail to help you prepare for life in the open sea, Disney style.

    Disney Castaway Cay is a magical place for everyone. Some people love to run or walk the Disney Castaway Cay 5K, some want to feed Castaway Ray's stingrays, a different group lounges on the pristine beach and listens to the gentle waves break on the shore, while others try out their cycling strength on the Aqua Trikes (C36), me I like the breeze in my hair as I stroll on a bike around the island or the big splash at the end of the Pelican Plunge. There are so many port adventure options to choose from on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App that the Disney Parks Blog created a Top Ten Things to Do at Castaway Cay.

    Bike Rentals (C04) on Disney Castaway Cay begins at 8:00 AM. Don't worry, if you need a few more moments of beauty rest before stepping ashore, your bike will be waiting for you at any time. Once you get your bike you can zip around the landing strip, go back on the paved trail to climb the observation tower, and search for nods to Disney movies and characters around the island. If for some reason all the bikes are gone when you arrive then it will be a short time for one to return as the rental length is only an hour.

    David, remember, the earlier you get off the ship the better lounge chair and umbrella options will be available on the family beach as well as the adult oasis, Serenity Bay. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions or for other Disney vacation planning tips.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories on the High Seas.
