With the upcoming expansion of the Disney Cruise Line, the company wants to make sure that Castaway Cay is ready for the influx of visitors. The 1,000 acre island paradise will be getting an upgrade, set to be done by next summer. Some of the items on the agenda are a bigger family beach, more water sports, another restaurant and 20 private cabanas.

The family beach is currently 1,000 feet and will be expanded by 700 feet. Disney wants guests to have the opportunity to spread out and is hoping the expanded beach will allow them to do so. Another tram stop will be added further down the coastline, along with a new restaurant and shops. Also in the works are two new corkscrew slides and two new play areas with water features.
