Disney’s Private Island

My best friend worked as a performer on the Disney Dream, and I had the lucky, lifetime opportunity to go on a FREE cruise! Our stops included Nassau and  Castaway Cay.

Paradise? Pretty Much. And not like Nassau, where only some areas are paradise, I’m saying that this entire island is paradise. Tidy, clean, sparkly…you know, very Disney. And the only way you can get to this private island is by taking a Disney Cruise. Once you look out your cabin window and see the clear blue waters, you’ll be racin’ to get on land!

Beaches

Once off the ship, a very Disney-like shuttle will transport you to the many beaches including:

With no plan for the day, we grabbed some bikes, thanks to the free bike rental from Lexi’s cast member status, and we trekked out to some bike paths at the end of the island and discovered this treasure…
With very few people exploring this high up look-out point, we climbed up the stairs and saw these green, lush views of the vegetation on the island. Stillness. Absolute stillness. We stared out in awe and took in the warm breeze. With FREE telescopes (yep, that’s right, you don’t have to put in a quarter to see the view!), we observed the plants and flowers before heading out back to the bike trail.
I’m always amazed by how much thought and attention to detail Disney gives to their resorts and products. Like Disneyland, every little detail about the private island is completely on point: whether it’s a statue of Scuttle perched on a wooden ledge or an abandoned pirate ship calling out to the pirate ghosts of the past parked along the waters inviting all those who enter to escape in the magic of Disney, Disney always goes above and beyond my expectations for a vacation.
