Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Just wondering if we will have time to enjoy all of the included activities at Castaway Cay (Pelican Plunge, character dance parties, beach etc.) if we also book the Extreme Getaway Port Adventure?
How long are the waits for slides at Pelican Plunge?
- - Asked by Jamie from Michigan on 12/28/2013
- Welcome back, Jamie! Castaway Cay is one of my favorite beaches in the entire world. With so much to offer every member of the family, I'm sure you'll fall in love with this beautiful island as well.
The Extreme Getaway Package on Castaway Cay includes quite a few fun adventures like bicycle rental, snorkel gear rentals, float and tube rentals and the popular Castaway Ray Stingray Adventure. These things will certainly keep you busy all day long.
If you think you'd like to spend your day by playing it more by ear, it's easy enough to simply walk up to the rental areas for the bikes, floats and snorkel gear if you decide at the last minute to participate on the island. There are plenty of bikes, floats and snorkel equipment, so really no need to pre-book those individually. You will save some money by pre-booking the entire adventure with the Extreme Getaway, but if you aren't sure you'll actually take advantage of all of that, why not just book the Castaway Ray Stingray Adventure, then see how your day shapes up from there.
In your previous question, you mentioned that your kids are 5 and 8. Don't forget that there are crab races, character dance parties, Monstro Point whale dig, Spring-a-Leak water play area, Pelican Plunge and more activities going on all day in which you'll probably want to participate. And your kids will love to spend some time playing wet and sandy games with the counselors in Scuttle's Cove, the Youth Club on the island, while you sneak away to Serenity Bay for some adult time. (I highly recommend that!)
I hope that helps as you continue planning your cruise, Jamie! Stop back again with any other questions!
