5 Reasons to Vacay in Castaway Cay- Disney’s Private Island


Summer is on it way! Have you Planned your Vacations yet for the year? Well if not, don’t worry. I have a Hot Spot that shouldn’t be missed.. Especially if Kids are tagging along 😉 Disney has a Private Island called Castaway Cay that is Exclusive to Disney Cruise Line Guests ❤ (Read my Review on The Disney Dream Cruise here). This Tropical Paradise is Perfect for Families and Disney Lovers in general! I’ve come up with 5 Reasons to Vacay on this Island and here they are:

1.The Disney Experience

Where do you even start here! From meeting Disney Characters on the Island and Photo Ops to the Awesome Staff and just the general Safety this is one Island in the Bahamas that you wouldn’t want to miss.

And Yes! You read it correctly.. Another great Value, are all of the Character Photo Ops! I have been to Disney Parks MANY times in my life and this is the quickest I’ve ever met any Disney Character ❤


Be sure not miss the Opportunity to Mail Out a Keepsake Postcard from the Bahamas! Whether it’s just going to you and your Family or to Share any good news withs Friends or Long Distance Relatives, be sure to stop by the Castaway Cay Post Office next to the Ship. It was fun to actually write on a Post Card again and then to see how long it actually takes to be delivered was interesting too!


2. Adult Only/Teen Only/Kid Only Areas are available

  • Spring-a-Leak (Splash Pad for Kids 3-12 yrs old)
  • Scuttle’s Cove (Kids Club with a Whale-Bone Excavation Site for Kids 3-12 yrs old)
  • Teen Hideout (Teen Lounge 14-17 yrs old)
  • Serenity Bay (18+ only Beach. BBQ is available in this area as well as Cabana Massages, and Castaway Air Bar!)


3. Complimentary Food & Soft Drinks

You will probably work up an appetite so, you’ll be in luck! There are Complimentary BBQ Style Outdoor Dining Areas. Buffet style, cooked right in front of you. You won’t want to pass up the opportunity to purchase a Disney Keepsake Souvenir Cup located by the Free Soda stands.



4. A FREE 5k Run including a Disney Medal

Although I haven’t participated in the 5k Run/Walk on Castaway Cay, I regret now that I didn’t. What a great opportunity to View the Island and all the Disney Touches you’ll find on the Island! Not to mention sign up is Free and you get a Medal ❤ Sign up is available on the Cruise 🙂



5. Tropical Atmosphere

This Private Island is great for anybody. With a Family Beach, Snorkeling Lagoon & a Shaded Game Pavilion. It even provides Beach Sports (like Volleyball), Boat Rentals (like Paddleboards), Snorkeling Gear, Inner Tubes and MORE… Did I mention Shopping?!?
