A Sight Unseen: The Night Stars at Disney Cruise Line’s Castaway Cay

Ever wondered what Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, looks like at night?

I’ve been wondering that myself for years, and I finally got the chance to find out.

I was recently on the island working on a pretty cool photo project, which I’m looking forward to sharing on the Disney Parks Blog soon. (I don’t want to give away too much, but you’ll get a perspective of Castaway Cay you’ve never seen before.)

Since this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be on the island at night, Mickey, Goofy and I decided to embark on a photo expedition for a glimpse of a sight unseen by most: the night stars at Castaway Cay.

We were awestruck by the number of stars visible in the brilliant night sky. Take a look for yourself…

Be on the lookout for more photos from my Castaway Cay adventure coming soon.

  • Those pics are so beautiful! I have never been there, but hope to be going on the DCL soon!

  • That’s so pretty!

  • I’ve often wondered what it would be like to spend the night there. Maybe a lay over cruise would be very nice.

  • Wow! Spectacular pictures!

    And I thought Castaway Cay was amazing in the day time!

    Hey Jonathan…any chance DCL is ever going to have an evening excursion on Castaway Cay so we can see these beautiful stars in person?

    Here’s hoping!!

  • These are some amazing photos! But must you taunt me with the Disney Magic? Lol i wish to to go someday!

  • Thank you for sharing, cannot wait to see the super secret project. I love these pics!!!!

  • These are just beautiful!! I’ve been to Castaway Cay twice (thrid time will be in 2 months) and I never thought about how no one sees it at night!! One of my favorite things to do at night on the cruise is to look up at the sky when we are out at sea. I live near the city, so I don’t get that kind of experience at home.
