« back to Castaway Cay
We are cruising in October on the Wonder with two days in Castaway Cay! Will there be different Navigators each day there or the same basic activities each day? We're repeat cruisers, but have not been back to back on the awesome island!

You're going to LOVE the Castaway Cay
"double dip" itinerary! We cruised with a double dip on the Dream in 2012, and it was my very favorite. The only thing better than a visit to Disney's private island paradise is visiting TWICE during one sailing!
On our cruise, the activities for our two stops at Castaway Cay were basically the same. The Castaway Cay 5K was only offered on the first visit, but that's the only major difference that I remember. We tried to make sure each day was different by scheduling different Port Adventures for each visit. On our first stop, we scheduled a super-active day by reserving the Castaway Cay Getaway Package
. With floats, snorkel equipment and an hour of bicycle rental, we had tons of fun in the sun! Touring the island on bikes is such a fun way to spend the afternoon, and a great way to work off some of the delicious "all-you-care-to-enjoy" soft-serve ice cream!
On our second day, we spent the day just chilling on the beach. We found a great spot right in front of Pelican Plunge! A parasailing adventure was scheduled for late afternoon, to take a flight over the gorgeous island before boarding the ship.
With two visits to this Disney paradise, you're sure to find lots of ways to enjoy yourself, and to make each day a unique experience. Whether you take it easy or get active, you'll be so happy you get to visit Castaway Cay twice! Make sure to keep an eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow - I've heard he likes to visit from time to time...
