Here’s a short post with one tip for you Disney cruisers that you should not forget!

Castaway Cay is Disney Cruise Line’s private island in the Bahamas.

Nearly every Disney cruise in the Caribbean makes a stop at Castaway Cay, as the island is easily accessible, just 250 or so nautical miles east of Port Canaveral. It is also all Disney’s with no permanent inhabitants and the only visitors are Disney’s cast and clients!

Remember though, it’s pronounced “Key”.

A visit to Castaway Cay will be one of the highlights of your Disney Cruise.

Our one tip…

Get off the ship first thing, and get your day on Castaway Cay started early!


Two reasons:

1. Many of your fellow Disney Cruisers will sleep in on the Castaway Cay day. We’re not quite sure why, but it always seem to work that way.

If you hit the Cay as soon as Disney will let you off the ship, you’ll snag a great spot on the beach and enjoy several hours of what will seem to be an almost completely secluded Caribbean Island.

You’ll love it.

2. By the time early afternoon rolls around, you’ll be ready to head back to the ship, just as all your fellow travelers are getting settled on Castaway Cay.

The ship will be all yours.

The lines for Aqua Duck or the Aqua Dunk or any of the ship-board attractions will be much, much shorter.
