Your meal will not cost you extra (you already will have paid for that) but everthing else will such as floats,snorkeling gear,alcoholic drinks. Everything you do will get charged to your "Key to the World Card." Here's some info on things to do on Castaway for you:

For kids and teens, it's Never Never Land. For adults, it's Shangri-la. As you step off the ship directly into paradise at Disney's Castaway Cay, you'll know you've arrived in a magical place. Hop on a bike and live out your wildest Robinson Crusoe fantasies exploring secluded white-sand beaches. Let us pamper you in rare style in one of our open-air massage cabanas. Join us for a Bahamian barbecue, or kick back with your favorite cocktail. In true Disney fashion, this day-long island experience is one you'll never forget.

Castaway Cay (pronounced 'key') is Disney's own 1000 acre private island, located in the Bahamas. Disney built a wharf on the island so that the ships could moor there, rather than having the passengers catch a launch boat to get to the island from the ship. Passengers can get to the family beach by taking a tram or walking, a tram takes you to Serenity Bay.

Located 225 nautical miles from Disney's year-round home port of Port Canaveral, Fla., Castaway Cay is a pristine island located in the string of Bahamian islands named the Abacos. Stretching 3.1 miles long and 2.2 miles wide, Disney has developed less than 10 percent of the island, allowing the natural beauty to surround guests at every turn.

Whether lounging on a sun-drenched beach, participating in a variety of water sports or indulging in the ultimate island barbecue, Castaway Cay offers an authentic tropical experience that every member of the family thinks is just for them.

There are now more adventures than ever for guests to enjoy at Castaway Cay, Disney's private Bahamian island.

New activities include banana boating, parasailing, bottom fishing, deep-water scuba diving, off-shore snorkeling, a scenic glass bottom boat voyage and a nature and kayak adventure.

On the dining front, guests can now indulge in fresh fruit buffets and soft-serve ice cream bars.

Adults have never been happier with Serenity Bay Beach, where they can stay all day, surrounded by fresh-grilled sandwiches, tropical fruit and beverage bars and open-air massage cabanas overlooking the sea.

Back toward the family beach, those looking for some fun out of the sun can participate games such as billiards, ping-pong, basketball, shuffleboard and foosball underneath a shaded recreation pavilion.

Whether lounging on a sun-drenched beach, participating in a variety of water sports or indulging in the ultimate island barbecue, Castaway Cay offers an authentic tropical experience with something for everyone.
