Welcome to Castaway Cay

UPDATE (October, 2010)
-- It's been almost two years (!?) since we were last at Castaway Cay, and Disney has expanded the facilities there in anticipation of their new additions to the Disney Cruise Line.  Check out this post from the Disney Parks Blog for some highlights.
This is part of a series about cruising on the Disney Magic. Click here if you want to go back to the start of the tour.

Before we conclude our tour of the Disney Magic, let's stop for a visit on Disney's private island - Castaway Cay (pronounced "key").

Located in the Bahama Islands, Castaway Cay serves as an exclusive port of call for the Disney Cruise Line.

The upper-right portion of this map shows the island's location:

Here's a view of the island, as seen from our stateroom on board the Magic:

Castaway Cay offers guests a remote, island getaway. Beaches, bicycles, boats, and other simple pleasures beckon.

The hi-res version of this map gives a good overview of Castaway Cay's layout and activities:

I'll spend the next few posts exploring select parts of the map.
