Getting around Disney’s Castaway Cay

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

I will be taking a Disney Cruise in a couple of months and with the Pic of the Week being about Disney’s Castaway Cay, I decided to continue with the theme and to further acquaint you with the Caribbean island.

The trams will take you from a stop near the dock to Palm Central Station with further service to Serenity Bay. The trams run about every six minutes with the caveat of them running on Bahamian time.

As you walk around the island, you will notice several fun photo opportunities dreamed up by Disney Imagineers.

The last blog showed Pluto at the Mount Rustmore location. Here is a photo of the nearby sign just in case you are lost.

While visiting the Lookout Tower on the island, I spied this interesting structure.

Well, hate to end this with bathroom humor, but time to start planning an island excursion.
