Looking for a bit of a retreat on Disney’s already private island, Castaway Cay? Well, look no further than the private cabanas nestled between the family beach and the adults only serenity beach.
I was fortunate enough to get one of these on our last Disney cruise and let me just tell you, it did not disappoint!
Once we got off the ship we took the tram to our check in point. After checking in we were lead to the cabana entrance
And taken to our cabana, we had #12
Our host gave us the run down and showed us the button to push if we needed anything throughout the day and then we went about settling in.
The cabanas have a small refrigerator stocked with water and soft drinks. There is also a basket with some snacks (we had fruit, chips and granola bars). You also get sunscreen and towels so there is no need to bring that off the ship if you don’t want to.
There is a living area and some great lounge chairs outside – these things were so comfortable!
And what is a day of relaxation with a hammock?
The price of the cabana also includes floats, sand toys, snorkeling equipment and bicycle rental. We made use of all of these things except the bike rentals, we just ran out of time!
Maybe the biggest perk to the cabanas though is the private beach, there is no jockeying for chairs or great spots, no bumping into and stepping around other beach goers, it’s just you and the other families in the cabanas. Our cabana beach looked like this all day….
Of course all this luxury doesn’t come free. The cost of the cabanas is $499 for up to 6 guests and you can add up to 4 more for an additional fee of $50 per person. We shared our cabana with another family which really made it much more affordable and totally worth the expense in our opinion! You can reserve the cabanas online in advance or at the Port Adventures desk on board, word of warning though, they go fast!
