Sharing A Tour of Disney’s Castaway Cay with you today!  Pure paradise during your Disney Cruise Line experience!
Castaway Cay

Castaway Cay

You are in for the ultimate treat at Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. I honestly can’t say enough about our very first Disney Cruise earlier this month.  What a time I’ll never forget.  As a re-cap, we experienced the 3 night cruise on the Disney Wonder departing from Port Caveral, FL.

One of the highlights of our cruise was definitely exploring around Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.  Another note for you, Castaway Cay is pronounced Castaway “key.”

Early Saturday morning we arrived to the island.  This was so exciting watching from our verandah.  If you’d like to see my review of our Disney Wonder Stateroom with Verandah, check it out HERE.

What Can I do on Castaway Cay?

There was so much to do and see once departing from the ship.  I’ll walk you through the island through photos.  Love this buoy at the beginning of the walkways.  Great photo spot.

So Many Great Photo Opportunities on Castaway Cay.

Can you even handle how adorable these Disney paintings are?  Another fun feature down the walkway.  Another perfect photo spot.

You’ve got a Castaway Cay map at the beginning of the island as well.

How Do I Get Around Disney’s Castaway Cay?

There are shuttles/trams to take you to various parts of the island should you not feel like walking.  My husband and I walked most parts of the island, gorgeous views all around so it’s worth it to walk.

Castaway Cay Weather

Castaway Cay weather has been GORGEOUS the 3 visits I’ve had over the last few years.  Check weather.com to get an idea of the timing of your cruise.  The colorful beachy walkways are breathtaking.

You’ve got plenty of signs to point you in the right direction.

So many things to do on the island.  You can rent these cool floating paddle bikes if you’d like, choose an excursion, or just spend the day lounging by the beautiful water.

I love that Castaway Cay has a family beach and also an adults only beach “Serenity Bay” should you be traveling with just adults.  We spent time at both, but most of our day at Serenity Bay.  It was fantastic.

Another one of our favorite activities was renting a bike to explore the island.  The bike rental area is right behind this 5K Start sign.  I believe it was $11 for the day per person.

    Oh my gosh! Just took my first Cruise on the Disney Dream Feb. 10th-13th. The pictures of Castaway Cay makes me a little “homesick”. My favorite part of the day was feeding the sting rays. Thank you for sharing.
