Re-post in case you missed it!
As most of you know, last weekend we took our very first Disney Cruise aboard the Disney Dream. It’s only been a week and we are already ready to go back. Disney Cruise Line does an amazing job, both on the ship and off. Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, offers guests activities, in addition to just having some fun in the sun on the beach. One such activity is biking. Yes, for $11.00 per person you can rent a bicycle for an hour and explore the island. The bike rental stand is convenient, and has multiple sizes of bikes for any member of your travel party. They even have bicycles with seats attached for little ones.
The bike trail is the same path as the 5K that Castaway Cay offers, plus more. You can ride your bike towards the back of the island where there’s a watch tower, to climb up and get a scenic view. Also, if you ride even further, you go past the adult beach and cabana area for more beach front views.
The island tour by bike takes a little while, and you WILL indeed get your exercise, as the roads have ups and downs. With all the eating we did aboard the Dream, exercise was probably needed! Guests under 18, like my kiddos, are required to wear a helmet. Once you’re done riding, you just return the bike back to the station and you can go about your day, it’s easy and fun. So, the next time you’re looking to do something a little extra while visiting Castaway Cay, try the bike rentals, it’s a great time for the entire family!
