    Is water available for free on Castaway Cay? Are there drink stations like on board the boats, or do you have to get soft drinks and water directly from the restaurants? Thanks!

    Welcome aboard, Meghan!

    Castaway Cay is one of my favorite places in the world! There is truly no other place like it. Disney's private island is such a beautiful and relaxing place with so many activities included, as well as some really delicious food.

    We love our lunches at Cookies BBQ and Cookies, Too! BBQ when we visit the island. These are the two buffet dining spots around Family Beach, but there is also another buffet restaurant out at Serenity Bay for the 18 and older crowd. Right outside the buffet area of each restaurant are beverage stations so you can help yourself to soft drinks and water throughout the day. My kids would not be happy with me if I failed to mention that next to those soft drink stations, you can also find soft serve stations. Once the kids get used to free ice cream all day on the ship, they don't want to give that up at Castaway Cay! And you simply must have one of the huge chocolate chip cookies at Cookies BBQ or Cookies, Too! BBQ, of course, because they are so yummy! No shortage of treats and great food on the island, that's for sure, Meghan!

    If you opt to rent bikes and take a leisurely ride around the island's bike paths, you'll find a few stops along the bike loop with water stations and cups so you can stay hydrated too. It is warm there, so wear your sunscreen and drink lots of water and you'll have a great day!

    Have fun planning your Disney cruise and your magical day at Castaway Cay! Please stop back if you have any other questions before you set sail. We're happy to help!
