What’s Included on Castaway Cay 

A visit to Castaway Cay is an extension of the Disney Cruise Line experience, with many offerings included in your cruise fare. Towels are conveniently provided as you head off the ship, and complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas are already set up for you to enjoy the turquoise-water beaches.

There is so much to see and do at Castaway Cay, from swimming and snorkeling in the blue lagoon to setting out on an adventure in a kayak or paddleboat. If you’re looking for a thrill, swim out to Pelican Plunge and hit the waterslides! Once you’ve had your fill of sunshine, head over to the In Da Shade Pavilion, where the whole family can enjoy various games like ping pong, basketball, and more.

Take advantage of all the island entertainment! Check out the live music and dance parties hosted at the Gazebo and keep an eye out for character appearances throughout the day. Mickey and his friends are dressed in their island best, which makes for a unique photo op. 

There is a variety of offerings that cruisers of all ages can enjoy, from adult-only areas to activities designed with little ones in mind. Has all the fun in the sun worked up an appetite? A delicious all-you-can-eat barbecue lunch and unlimited soft-serve ice cream are also included in your visit.

Just For Kids

While there is plenty of family-friendly entertainment on Castaway Cay, there is also programming just for kids! Like the Oceaneer Club on the cruise ships, sailors ages 3-12 can visit Scuttle’s Cove to enjoy age-appropriate, supervised fun. Activities include sandcastle building, water games, scavenger hunts, and more. Teen Hideout allows teens ages 14-17 to have a space of their own in paradise to enjoy island activities without adults (or kids) around!

Adults Exclusives

Guests ages 18 and older can escape to Serenity Bay, an adults-only retreat on Castaway Cay. Your little ones can enjoy secured youth programming at Scuttle’s Cove while you grab a specialty beverage from Castaway Air Bar, find a relaxing hammock, and enjoy the serene sounds of the ocean. Indulge in a delicious feast at Serenity Bay BBQ – a peaceful lunch spot reserved only for adults.
