Disney Cruise Blog: Disney's Private Island, Castaway Cay

October 24, 2019

First things first, ENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN YOUR OWN DISNEY CRUISE HERE! (last day to enter is 10/27/2019) 

I'm calling this a "blog," but it's really more of a photo gallery. I feel like there's nothing I can say that does Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, justice. The only way to visit Castaway Cay is to take a Disney Cruise...and really, it's almost worth it just for the day at the island even if you didn't love the rest of the cruise - which you will! 

First, look at that blue water! #nofilter  :)

Here's my daughter right before she went on that water slide behind her. How fun, right? A water slide that drops you into the ocean! 

Here's my daughter having fun on the "island" where the water slides are.

And while I had put my phone away when we were out in the water, here's a picture my friend took. Look at that beautiful clear water!!! I want to go back! You could walk out really far if you wanted to so it was a lot of fun for even the little ones. 

How clear is the water on #CastawayCay you can see your feet and everything else! #Bahamas #SerenityBay #PrivateIsland JohnAndStacey #DisneyDream #FollowMyDisneyCruise #DisneyCruiseLife

Here's some video I shot just on tram ride back to the ship. Yes...that's how Disney does it. You don't even have to walk if you don't want to. They'll pick you up. And great you with cold drinks and iced towels. Now that's the Disney Cruise Life. And I miss it.
