There are many reasons that Castaway Cay is a favorite stop on Disney cruises. Watch the video to get a feel for the island, and then check out some of the unique features below.
Given this is Disney’s private island, there’s no need for tender boats on here – the ship docks where guests can simply wander on and off of the ship as they please.
Castaway Cay Post Office
Send a postcard or letter from the island post office and it will be stamped with the Castaway Cay postmark.
About 60 Disney crew members live on Castaway Cay and work full-time on the island. It adds to the sense of place you feel when visiting.
There’s an exclusive adult-only section on the island. The secluded retreat is Serenity Bay, with its own restaurant, beach and adult playground.
From digging for artificial whale bones to a 1,200-square-foot water playground with pop jets and and bubblers, this is the hub of child play on the island, especially during the Caribbean Beach Party.
From Gotta Get Soaked, a team challenge with water balloons and buckets, to Water Mania for younger children, there are water games for all ages, and sand castle games for those who want to stay dry.
