One of the highlights of a Disney cruise is stopping for the day at Castaway Cay, a private island in the Bahamas that is reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. Here are 9 things we love about this little slice of paradise.
As the ship pulls into the 1,000-acre Castaway Cay, you won’t believe your eyes. This is the stuff that deserted island dreams are made of: white-sand beaches, crystal-clear aquamarine water, swaying palm trees. Leave it to Disney to find the most idyllic oasis in the middle of the Caribbean sea. And of course, this being Disney, not a palm frond is out of place. The island is perfectly manicured and decorated with colorful, Bahamian-style cottages, including a working post office where you can mail postcards.
