23 September 2016

Beach at Castaway Cay

Updated: June 2024

Reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, Castaway Cay is one of the best cruise line private islands to visit on a Caribbean cruise and a destination everyone can look forward to when sailing on any one of the Disney Cruise Line ships. With swaying palm trees, sugar-white sandy beaches, and calm turquoise waters, this paradise is overflowing with amenities and a healthy does of Disney magic.

From the moment you step off your ship, everything you need for the truly perfect beach getaway is catered for; there's plenty of sun loungers and parasols for those of you looking to kick-back and soak up the sun, venues for tasty snacks and refreshments throughout your stay, and family-friendly entertainment – with Captain Mickey taking a break from his duties to enjoy the sunshine too!

What Can You See and Do at Castaway Cay?

You're spoilt for choice at Castaway Cay; there's so much to enjoy, and plenty of places to rest and relax if you're looking to lounge.

Treat yourself to scrumptious snacks thanks to open-air BBQ dining with complimentary meals, Disney character greetings, complimentary childcare for children aged three through 12, shops full of unique Castaway gifts and souvenirs, supervised kids clubs packed with fun activities, hiking trails and biking routes... There really is so much to do at this incredible island resort.

Here's a little more on some of this destination's highlights:

Shore Excursions

To make the most of your time on Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line have specially selected a great selection of shore excursions to provide you and your family with some unforgettable experiences. Top tip - to avoid any disappointment, you can pre-book any port adventure 120 days before your departure. Here’s just a snippet of what you can do…

Some Things to Know Before You Go

It's important to be prepared when you visit Castaway Cay, but you'll be pleased to know that this isn't going to be as stressful as you might think. The main language spoken on the island is English, with many of the English-speaking Disney Crew members actually living on the island itself.

Not only this, but the island's economy runs on US Dollars. But, you're more likely to use your stateroom keys as a form of payment, just like you would on your cruise ship – and just like a credit card!

On top of this, you'll even find a post office on the island – one operated by the official Bahamian authorities. It's not open every day, but you can still mail your letters and postcards to loved ones back home from this tropical paradise by using the drop-box outside the post office itself.
