Default Castaway Cay - Bike rental Q

We are so excited to be taking our family on our first Disney cruise in April 2012! We love to bike on vacation and take our bikes with us on trips sometimes.

Does the bike rental place on CC have bikes with kiddie seats or pull along cars to fit two little kids available? We have 4 year old twins and a 1 year old.

Hi!

I remember seeing bikes with toddler/child seats attached, but not trailers. They also had helmets available.

There may have been bike trailers, but I didn't notice them.

My bike ride was one of the highlights of my day on Castaway Cay.
Enjoy.

No bike trailers but they do have kiddie seats on some bikes and some small bikes with training wheels.

I love biking on Castaway Cay!

btw - your ticket says you have an hour to ride, but they don't time you in any way.

Where do you book the bike rentals? do you do it ahead of time at the ship or you do it at CC? I am interested in booking a bike for me and my hubby and a little bike seat for our toddler.

I would go to the shore excursion desk to ask about it.

But I'd be surprised if they ran out, they had A LOT of bikes!

There was no issue with float or bike availability for either day we were on CC, despite that both were sold out online. Have a great time!
