Day 7 in our Disney Video Tour — Fun in the sun at Castaway Cay

by Susan

Disney Tips - Disney Castaway Cay

Welcome to Day 7 in our 10 Days of Disney Video Tour.

Okay, Ladies… this is what life is all about… Fun in the sun at Disney Cruise Line’s exclusive island in the Bahamas — Castaway Cay!

I must go back!!!

See the complete list of videos at 10 Days of Disney video tour.

Or click on each below to enjoy the magic of Disney…

See the full list in our 10 Days of Disney video tour.

And in the nature of full disclosure… Disney paid for our trip and produced these videos. But as you can imagine, they certainly didn’t need to pay us to love and gush about Disney… that just comes naturally. :)

Don’t miss tomorrow’s scenic video…

Clear ocean waters always seem to beckon me. I would like to snorkel but I would also love to spend time at the adult beach sitting in the water or floating around. Hmmm…the open air cabana massage would be nice too!

I have not been on a Disney Cruise however, I will be going on one. We have been wanting to take our children and grandchildren on a cruise. We want to have a family atmosphere for the little ones and we know that Disney will provide that.
I would love to sit in the theater and watch the live performances with my grandchildren. We went on a cruise with another cruise line in 2000 and again this year with the same cruise line. Can you believe that the live show was exactly the same 9 years later????

I think we’d like the “family beach” best. My husband and I are not big into the “drop-your-kids-off-at-a-kids-club-while-on-vacation” thing. We much prefer to keep our girls with us, exploring the sights and sounds of faraway places together…

When we went on the Disney Cruise, we really enjoyed the fact that we could go to the adults only beach in the morning while our youngest had fun with kids his own age doing lots of fun things, and our teenager spent the whole day swimming, biking, snorkling, etc. Then we met the little one for lunch, and went to the family beach so my son and I could swim together in the water, while The Hubs could take his afternoon nap. Just the whole day was…. well, MAGICAL!!! (Not to mention the photos… especially the one of my little on with Capn. Hook…. oh, the memories!!)
