Disney's Castaway Cay, Bahamas

Consistently rated by Disney Guests as their favorite port of call, Castaway Cay is Disney's private island paradise reserved exclusively for Disney cruisers. This oasis invites you to enjoy balmy tropical weather and world-class recreation with renowned Disney hospitality.

Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase by Guests 21 years of age or older. Disney Imagineers designed Castaway Cay with one-of-a-kind areas and activities for every member of the family.

Teens can kick back, listen to music and participate in activities at Hideout, their own secluded area close to the beach.
