I'm curious to know if characters are ever out at Castaway Cay? I know my DD would love this!

They appear on the dock as you get off the ship, and in the kid programming for very brief times. Times will be noted on the PALS line, in the Navigator, and in the atrium.

Remember, it can be HOT there! They can't stay out long.

They do - several ones in different spots. Will be on your navigator!

Captain Jack also appears! My DSD was so excited because she was wearing her pirate t-shirt. I have a picture of Captain Jack point to DSD's chest (and she's not a small cup size).

Yes, we had some great encounters with characters there. The best (and shortest, LOL) was when we were riding the tram and we looked to our right (away from the beach) and Capt Jack showed up on the top of a small hill right by the tram. I barely was able to get my camera up and ready in time but it was so cool the way he jumped up on top of the hill with nothing but open island as a backdrop. It looked like something out of one of the movies He was on his way over to the character greeting, I'm sure...but it was such a cool entrance.

We also had a very fun encounter with Chip and Dale as we were getting back on the ship.

Captain Hook was in front of the post office, Jack Sparrow was on the walkway to the beach, Mickey was at his designated Meet & Greet spot, Minnie and Goofy were by Mount Rushmore.
