Just a magical day on Castaway Cay. The family really enjoyed the day, except for the fishing trip cancellation on 12/24/14 due to rough seas. Totally get that! No worries because we just relaxed on the beach, our daughter LOVED the kids club (she is 8). Food at the BBQ for lunch was very good. Hard to think or fathom... More

We had not been to Castaway Cay for 8 years and I was amazed at the changes that have taken place. Tip #1. If you are on the Wonder or Magic (smaller ships) don't worry about reserving a cabana. Yes I said it. They have really added chairs and beach space to make room for the extra capacity on the... More

While the entire Disney Cruise experience was great, Castaway Cay was my favorite stop! We were concerned it was going to be overcrowded but their was plenty of room for all. We got off the ship early and enjoyed no line for water slide and clear waters for snorkeling. Later in the day, we came face to face with a... More

you are from Florida like we are. Very relaxing clean and well staffed and accommodating team on this island. Of course it's Disney so you'd expect that anyway. It's an easy walk to the common area so if the tram line is king just the the 10 min walk. It's relaxing anyway.

Disney does it right and hits it out of the park with Castaway Cay. The island is pristine and peaceful. If you can visit only one island in your life, it should be Castaway Cay!

The island was beautiful with so much to do! Snorkel early if possible, it does get cloudy after a few hundred people have kicked up all the sand. We rented a cabana. I would definitely recommend it for families with young kids; the beach is far less crowded. We had a baby and they put a pack-n-play in the cabana... More

Everyone loves this visit during the cruise and with good reason. Just like the Disney Cruise line ships there is something for everyone. We've enjoyed as adults by ourselves as well as with the entire family. The beach is amazing as is the ocean slides..of course there's some Disney shopping for those souvenirs and just like the boat, all you... More

It looks like TripAdvisor doesn’t have a section for cruises. The Castaway Cay is part of the Disney Cruise so I will take this opportunity to provide my recent experience on the Disney Fantasy.
