Castaway Cay expansion

Posted on: August 31, 2009

I’ve been waiting for this news.  Castaway Cay is AWESOME,  but if you’re going to be bringing more people there with a bigger ship, then you’ll need more room for them.

What am I talking about?   In preparation of the new ships Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy; Castaway Cay is getting a makeover.  It actually looks to be a major expansion and overhaul more than just a makeover.  A few of the headlines: new/expanded family beach area, another picnic shelter for the buffet lunch, a new teen hideout area, new water play areas –in the water and on land!   More information

As I said, I’ve been waiting for this announcement.   I saw signs of this in July; there were large construction vehicles/tools on the island and some work was starting.  While I’ve been fortunate to visit Castaway Cay during some lower crowd times, I can see how it could get very busy.  Bring in the new ships and more than double the amount of people….It was going to be crowded.  The great thing is, this island has plenty of room for expansion and the ability to leave much of the island undisturbed.

This is very exciting news.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out!    Hmmm, sounds like a good reason to book another cruise 🙂
