Welcome to Disney’s Castaway Cay, where the palm trees sway and the crystal-clear waters sparkle all day long! Guests will enjoy not one, but three beaches all accessible by tram or a walking path; the first two beaches are family-friendly, while the last beach, Serenity Bay, is adult-exclusive! Along your way to the beach, you might even see some of your favorite Disney pals out for photos early in the morning! Character meet & greet times/locations on the island can be found in your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app! (PROTIP: Get there early because these lines will be closed off quickly; they’re very popular!)
Let’s take a look at what else is in store…
Castaway Family Beach
Find your place in the sun at this gorgeous beach set aside, especially for family fun. Have a blast sailing, paddling a kayak, or swimming and snorkeling in the blue lagoon. With your family in mind, we’ve laid out a feast at Cookie’s BBQ. You can also take advantage of a host of good-time activities, from lively music and dancing at the Gazebo to tetherball, volleyball, and soccer at the Sports Beach. Children can even engage in an array of supervised games at the fanciful In Da Shade Game Pavilion!
Snorkelers of all skill levels will be enchanted by the undersea realm of marine life off Castaway Family Beach. Novices can follow the Discover Trail, while more experienced snorkelers may wish to tackle the Explorer Trail. Keep an eye out for the hidden Mickey!
Escape to this secluded, adults-only oasis reserved exclusively for adults 18 years of age and older. There, you can unwind in the heart of serenity, treating yourself to such offerings as an open-air cabana massage under the swaying palm trees, or frozen specialty drinks at the Castaway Air Bar. Air Bar BBQ has hearty fare and savory dishes to satisfy your appetite when hunger strikes.
Gil’s Fins and Boats
Rent snorkel gear for all family members, along with kayaks, paddleboats, aqua trikes, and other water equipment for your day as a marine adventurer.
Take a ride on one of the 2 twisting water slides that carry you into the refreshing lagoon at this water-play area and floating platform, which celebrates the island’s native pelicans.
Teen Hideout is just what it’s named for a place where teens 14 to 17 years of age can lounge—carefree—in their very own slice of paradise.
In Da Shade Game Pavilion
