Recap of Couponing Deals and Disney Posts 10.1.14

A Note from Kristin

I had to give up dairy for the baby, so I have been cooking a lot more at home. Boy at the dishes! And half of them are too big or not made for the dishwasher. I’m smart though and I put the computer on Netflix and watch something interesting while I wash the dishes.

Disney’s Castaway Cay Island

Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Line is the best cruise line for families. Why?  Because it is all-inclusive cruising.  That means your stateroom, all meals, live entertainment, and more is included in your cruise fare.  And next week, October 6-13, is Cruise Week!  Guess what!  Disney Cruise Line is offering a $100 onboard credit for select 7-Night sailings January-March of 2015 when you book during Cruise Week.  As the FAQ writer here on Couponing to Disney, I visit you every week to share questions and answers about Disney travel.  This week, we are going to look at Disney’s Castaway Cay Island.  Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, and every Disney Cruise Line itinerary out of Florida includes a stop at Castaway Cay!

Can I rent beach umbrellas and chairs on Castaway Cay?

Actually, no you can’t rent them. They are FREE!  How awesome is that?  Disney Cruise Line offers free beach chairs, umbrellas, and chaise lounges on Castaway Cay for no fee.   They are first come first serve, but they are also plentiful!

What activities are on Castaway Cay?

Your Disney Cruise Line ship will stop on Castaway Cay so you can enjoy tons of family, or adult only, fun!  Pelican’s Plunge and Scuttle’s Cove are perfect for the kids.  These play areas are safe, fun, and give the kids in your family lots of room to run and play. You can leave them here to enjoy the adult only beach, or stay and play with them on Pelican’s Plunge!  Bike rentals are another great option on Castaway Cay.  Shopping is plentiful as well.  Lunch is provided during your stop at Castaway Cay as well.

How is the weather at Castaway Cay in the winter months?

The weather in Castaway Cay can be somewhat unpredictable in the winter months.  However, it is warm enough to be outside to enjoy bike riding and the beach.  It can be “cool”, think in the 70s”, which for many of us that is nice compared to what we are experiencing in much of the US during the winter!  It may not be warm enough to swim, but it will be pleasant.

What is the Castaway Cay 5K?

The Castaway Cay 5K is a run that is free, and open to guests 10 and up. It is an unofficial runDisney 5K.  That means it is not timed, but you still receive a medal at the end.    If you would like to run, but your children are too young, this would be a great opportunity to check them into Scuttle’s Cove for some fun while you run.

What excursions can I book for Castaway Cay?

Castaway Cay offers a lot of fun activities outside of the beach and swimming.  Some of the more popular ones are the Castaway Cay Getaway Package, the Castaway Ray’s Stingray Adventure, Glass Bottom Boat Scenic Voyage, and the Seahorse Catamaran Snorkeling Adventure.  Some of these may have age limits, and the shore excursions can be booked 75 days before your departure.

Extra Cash: Get paid to complete surveys with Mindfield Online

Mindfield Internet Panels is currently accepting new applications. You can earn cash for your opinion and for testing full size products.

Mindfield is one of my favorite survey companies. I’ve tested a few products for them (they pay you and send you the product to test free!). I have even been offered some really high dollar surveys ($7 and $8!).

One of my readers joined and the same day she received TWO $25 surveys the day she joined! They were surveys that you complete daily over a 2 week period, but how cool is that?

The minimum to cash out is just $5 and you can opt to receive your payments via Paypal.

Here’s what readers had to say:

I got paid 10 bucks from them to try something once. That was pretty cool. – Ashley

I have been active with Mindfield for 5 months and I just started my 5th product test for them. And these products are awesome and something that I would buy for my family. – Sandy

I actually qualified for a $25 survey a few months ago. I ran through the house jumping for joy. – Pauline

This is one of the many ways you can add cash to your fund. Be sure to see all the ways to earn extra cash.Go here to read to the Getting Started “Couponing to Disney” page.
