2nd time back on Disney cruise. This place is awesome. So much to do on little island! My son and I went snorkeling for a couple of hours while my wife and daughter played on beach. The only bummer was that our trip got cut short by torrential downpour halfway into the day. My son and I dumped our snorkeling... More

Pictures do not do this justice. It is amazingly beautiful. Disney as usual has made this perfection. This will be the best day of your cruise. There are numerous excursions but we chose to rent some floats and snorkel gear and just enjoyed the day.

Take your time and don't rush to the Cay. It seemed like when it was time to disembark, everyone flooded to stake their claim on the beach. My family and I leisurely ate a later breakfast, packed snacks, and arrived at the Cay after 1pm. Families with young kids and sunburned families were already returning to the boat. We easily...

Castaway Cay was, by far, the best stop on the trip! The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is a ton of fun! My family never did make it to other parts of the island, we had way too much fun snorkeling with all the fish. The BBQ lunch they serve is ok, I'm sure the food quality differs for... More

access is only available through disney cruises, lots and lots of activities on site for a price of course, howver if you do not feel like spending extra money the beaches are beautiful.

This is Disney's private island and is the highlight of the cruise. So much fun from water sports, swim with the stingrays, massage, bike rides, and a yummy BBQ lunch. I wish that Disney would cruise to this island and spend more than 1 day. Best stop on the whole trip! Love the Disney cruise line!

Part of the Disney Cruise experience in May 2014 aboard the Fantasy. We had beautiful hot and sunny weather the entire day. My Mother and adult sisters and I really enjoyed that there were specific adult only parts of the Cay. Everything was run with the typical Disney efficiency and forethought. The only negative to my experience was the selfishness... More

So this review location is Disney's Cataway Cay, but people are essentially using it as a review of the Disney Cruises they went on - I didn't see a tripadvisor section on cruises, which to me seems pretty odd - definitely a section they should have (or perhaps I just can't find it). Pretty much all of the Disney Cruises... More

It was nice experience for my family. If you never been to gorgeous beach, you will be amazed by. We have been to much nicer beach so impression of the beach was so so. We enjoyed foods. My boy liked BBQ. The day was very hot so we stayed for few hours and went back to the ship earlier.
