Everything you love about Disney combined with everything you love about the Beach!

You can't go wrong with a beach that Disney has cleaned, raked, and prepped for your arrival. Not to mention, it's a private beach, with lunch included. Always a win!

We did the 5K in the morning after dropping our daughter off at the Kidscove. They walked up with us to the starting point. Yes it is a bit of a walk to the starting point, but hey it's a warming up ;). After we finished we went to pick up our daughter but she didn't want to come, she... More

This was our first time on a Disney Cruise and our first time to Castaway Cay. I'd read a lot of reviews about the 5K Disney does the morning you arrive. I decided to give it a shot. It was fun, but walking over a mile to the start line seemed to kill the point. There were no mile markers... More

Castaway Cay was wonderful. It had been years in between trips and I could not believe how I had it still looked the same as it did years ago. It definitely has a refreshing atmosphere and is way less crowded than other islands in the area. I can't wait to get back. The cruise was all around a perfect experience!

This was our third visit to Castaway Cay with a Disney Cruise and it was as fabulous as ever. We didn't get off the ship until about 10:00 am and there were still plenty of sun loungers, chairs and hammocks available on the beach. It didn't get too crowded at all. There was an area suitable for young children to... More

Fantastic every time we've gone. So beautiful, so clean, so well organized. Plenty of activities for those who want to be in the sun and those who do not. We saw lizards on land and sea turtles, stingrays and fish in the snorkeling lagoon. No waves so you can just float forever. Note, people lay claim to the hammocks and... More

This was our third visit to Castaway Cay. Every visit has been pleasant, relaxing, and enjoyable. We and the opportunity to walk all around the island, relax in Serenity Bay, do some swimming, and ride a water trike. There was some damage to the island from Hurricane Matthew. Mostly this was cosmetic, and the structures and beaches were in decent... More

I REALLY enjoyed Serenity Bay - the beautiful water, refreshing, delicious adult beverages and that hammock! I was able to relax there, because my grandson enjoyed the Scuttle's Cove area and did not want to leave. My daughter and niece enjoyed the family beach area. The family beach area was not for me however, because of the crowd. My purpose... More

My husband and I were on a 4 night cruise to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The day at Castaway Cay was our actual anniversary. It was a beautiful day! We walked around the family beach on our way back to the Dream, but spent all our time on the Cay at Serenity Beach. The adult beach was very uncrowded. The... More
