Castaway Cay. It truly is the definition of paradise. Disney’s very own private island is a beacon of relaxation and the perfect beach day you could possibly have. There’s great beaches with not too deep water, there’s a running/biking trail, there’s snorkeling, there’s parasailing, there’s great kids areas, there’s stingrays, I mean, it’s paradise.
But, while you’re on paradise, you get pretty hungry. Swimming, biking, running, snorkeling, sitting on the beach ( 🙂 ), etc can be a workout. And you don’t want to go all the way back to the ship to eat. It’s so far away! What’s a family to do? Well, that’s where Cookie’s BBQ and Cookie’s Too come into play!
Both Cookie’s BBQ and Cookie’s Too are BBQ dining locations that serve up complimentary meals! That’s right, everything here is included with your cruise fare. There are many different entry points for the buffet, so if the line is long at one, search around the corner because you might find an option with a much shorter line.
Both offer up delightful summer-time inspired treats and things to appeal to all. There’s things like cous-cous, tomato salad, corn on the cob, cheeseburgers, spicy chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, chicken, ribs, chips, and more. The menu stays relatively the same time and time again, but occasionally, you’ll find a new option.
Of course, you can’t forget dessert. There’s a soft serve ice cream option for Guests, but there’s also muffins, breads, and what the place is named for…
Huge chocolate chip cookies! (Here’s a hack….take two cookies….go to the ice cream machine and make yourself a delicious ice cream cookie sandwich!)
Cookie’s BBQ and Cookie’s Too is open air, so keep that in mind. Especially because the wildlife knows there’s food here and they are just waiting for you to leave your tray open so they can pig out! (And trust me! They absolutely will!) Because it’s open air though, you are perfectly welcome to come dressed in your bathing suit and sit on one of the wooden picnic tables.
Cookie’s BBQ and Cookie’s Too certainly isn’t a fancy option, but it is delicious and filling. When you’re on an island like Castaway Cay, you’re looking for delicious and filling. (If you are looking for something air conditioned, you can always go back to the ship and have lunch instead.)
