Castaway Cay. GET THERE EARLY!. It's very hot, find chairs in the shade. You will need them. If you don't have all the snorkel stuff, flippers, vest, mask, rent them. I'ts worth it. Buy underwater cameras at Wallmart (Cheap Fuji 7-8 $ ) takes great pictures. Huge fish. My kids stayed in the water for hours. Sun is very hot , reapply, reapply, or burn. Be prepared to stand in line for an hour or more for hair braiding at castaway, braid 1$, corn row 2$, long hair extra. Eat or at least get drinks at Cooks barbeq. They close promptly at 2:00 or 2:30 you will be out of luck. Take small bills or change if you are going to mail postcards from castaway cay. Stamps have disney ship on them and are Bahamian. Postcards have same ship picture. Suggest you purchase on board, write them out and mail them as soon as you get on to the island. Plan something to do like a shore excursion to beach or dolphin etc. if your cruise takes you to Freeport, don't take a cab and walk around shops. Very dirty, worse that nassau. All and all not a bad vacation. Saw the Shuttle Launch. Visited the emergency room(daughter got a 2 ''sliver at hotel pool deck in Fla. Had to replace alternator in my van. (we Drove down) Swam with sharks (yes we were in Sarasota, and Tampa. when they wer biting people) saw a funnel cloud, too.Heard that a tornado did touch down in Tampa area. It's great to be home, Already planning my next Disney adventure, Maybe a 7 day Cruise, maybe the newest hotel.Maybe not in the heat of August .
