Ever wanted to live on Disney’s private island in the Bahamas? Now is your chance!

Disney Cruise Line

The pandemic is greatly affecting the cruise industry as sailings have been suspended for almost a year and there is no beginning date in sight.

Just yesterday, Disney Cruise Line announced that cruises through the end of summer 2021 have been canceled. Although this is so unfortunate, the deadline to use the Future Cruise Credits has been extended. Read about those details HERE.

It’s hard to know what cruises will look like once they resume, but I imagine the same health and safety precautions will be taken there that are taken at other Disney Parks. In fact, I suspect they will go even further for cruises as the environment there is so different compared to theme parks.

With all that said, Disney is still needing people to come live on their private island! Yes, you can LIVE on Castaway Cay. Here’s how.

All but one have been listed on the website just this month alone! Several of the people who work for Castaway Cay do actually live on the island while some commute from other islands.

Would you ever want to live on an island?

I posed this question to the other KtP Writers and got a variety of responses.

Christina said she thinks it sounds nice in theory but wouldn’t want to live on a remote island. Kenny the Pirate noted he would rather live in Hawaii with more activities. Kate said no because Etsy deliveries would probably not be accepted there. None of us could argue that.
