On our third day aboard the Disney Wonder we made a visit to Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
We decided to skip the tram to the beach and walk instead. On our walk we ran into none other than Captain Jack Sparrow! I have to commend Disney on casting the characters, this “Jack” was awesome and played his part well!
Next we found Mickey! J-Kabob decided to play a little shy with Mickey this day, but we still managed to get a few photos.
We took a stroll down the beach to find a spot to settle down for the day and came across this little guy! He sure kept J-Kabob entertained for awhile. Isn’t he cute?!
The water was a good temperature and we had a blast swimming in the ocean and playing in the sand! I really appreciated that Disney had life jackets available on the beach.
And you can’t leave the beach without trying out the hammocks! Can you see that little grin on his face? Too cute!
Before we knew it, it was time to head back to the ship. Look how beautiful it is here! With everyone heading back to the ship it made for a great photo of the ship with the empty beach.
Almost back to the ship and J-Kabob spotted a cannon and a pile of cannon balls!
What a great sight to see upon returning to the ship! They really do a great job at making you feel at home while on vacation.
We cleaned up and headed to the dining room for our last dinner onboard. The servers are really awesome at making sure you have what you need. J-Kabob just wanted some grapes to munch on and they made it happen. A whole bowl of grapes for our little guy.
Here are our wonderful servers. A nice thing with Disney Cruise Line is that your dining servers follow you around to the different dining rooms. This means they can really get to know you and your preferences, instead of having to tell new servers each night. Our servers would always have our drinks on the table waiting for us and usually had a little game or trick to show J-Kabob.
A certain little man fell asleep during dinner. Having such a fun beach day must have worn him out!
But before long he was awake again, not wanting to miss any of the fun. We headed back to our room.
I know it’s hard to see, but there is a cute towel rabbit on the bed!
Then we headed down to the theater for our last stage show of the trip. Disney shows are really well done and never failed to keep the attention of J-Kabob. This meant we all got to see the full show without someone needing to take J-Kabob out. Well that and he was usually tired by the time we got to the show, so he was pretty content to stay still in his chair!
I must have forgotten to take photos of leaving the ship the next morning, in all the hustle and bustle, because I can’t find any. Opps! Rest assured though, it was a smooth process of having breakfast and getting off the ship. Our luggage was waiting for us in the terminal, we just collected it and headed out to find our bus.
We had such a wonderful time. I highly recommend a Disney Cruise for anyone with kids (and even those without). The level of quality and fun for families is outstanding!
Thanks for reading along as I reminisced about our first ever Disney Cruise!
