My son who is 5 years old will be cruising with us in about 3 wks. My question is at Castaway Cay(disney's island) do they allow children my son's age in the water while they are in the program for his age group, or is everything they do on the sand? he does not swim well at all ,so I am concerned about him going in the water without parental supervision but I don't want him to miss out on being with children his age. Any advice or suggestions?
Castaway Cay's program is on the sand -- no where near the water. They have some fun activities but it does get hot there. THere are some sprinklers to help. I suggest having him go for a short bit if you want some time for r&r, but I never left my kids there for hours on end due to the heat. The water is so inviting that it's a shame if your kids can't enjoy it too.
