    Are there activities that are included with your day here? Do they do a lunch on the beach?

    Lunch at Cookies BBQ for the family or Serenity Bay for adults, soft drinks, ice cream, kids' clubs....I think that's everything. Oh, and beach chairs and umbrellas- it's heaven!!!

    OK, so what are the activities that they have, that you pay a fee for? Like sea racers, etc?

    There are excursions you have to pay for on Castaway Cay, i.e. parasiling, sting rays, and waverunners. You have to pay for anything that goes in the water, snorkels, boats, floats, etc. You also have to pay for bicycle rentals.

    No, lunch is served at Cookies BBQ by the family beach and also at Serenity Bay. There is also ice cream, a fresh fruit stand and drink station. You only pay for drinks if ordered from a server or one of the bars.

    If you bring your own snorkel gear, there is no charge to swim out into the snorkel area where they have the submerged "Mickey" and other things to see underwater.

    They will ask you to wear one of their safety vests in the water even if you have your own mask and flippers, but there is no charge for just the vest. You can rent snorkel gear for a fee, as well, but wanted to say that snorkeling is no charge if you have your own [​IMG]

    Well, the ship is right there, so you can easily jump back on to get something from Goofy's or Plutos and take it ashore.

    Cookies' serves a BBQ lunch buffet from 11:30am until 2pm. I beleive Serenity Bay's little food area has the same hours. Then, Cookies' usually keeps just one line open from 2-3:30pm with BBQ and (sometimes) pizza.

    They might have been referring to needing food outside of the hours Cookies has?!

    Hey Mickeyhugger or Deb T If I were to rent a bike do you know if they have the toddler seat on some of the bikes so I can take my 2yr old for a ride?
