I've read great things about Disney cruises but my budget is limited. The Dream berth from Port Canaveral to Nassau and to Disney's private Castaway Cay was a great choice for our family, and booking through Leigh McCarty at Small World Vacations allowed this novice family of cruisers to have some help with the planning and budgeting. I truly believe... More

We spent four hours on this island with a young toddler. While four hours isn't long for most families, it was plenty of time for a 13 month old. There are a number of things to do on the island. Most of the activities are geared towards the five and up crowd. There were limited things for my daughter to... More

My family and I really enjoyed this beautiful island! Lots of fun on the beach! Several things to do for small children also. This Disney Cruise adventure was top notch in my book!

What's not to love about a private island? Only Disney cruises can use it and we were the only ship docked at the time we went. It had everything you need, including rental boats, snorkel gear, etc. We booked the sting ray port adventure and enjoyed every minute of it. The BBQ they served on the island was pretty tasty...

By far the one of the best parts of our disney cruise. The sand is beautiful and clean, the water cool and clear. Disney has everything available - floats, snorkel equipment, food, drinks and restrooms. There are even cabanas available, although only a few and very pricey. There are plenty of sport excursions available on the island - sting ray... More

I love that Disney has it's own island, and, while it's not the only cruise line that does have one, this is by far the cleanest and best-run of them out there!
