by three explorers who were searching for fame and fortune. What they found
instead was an incredible tropical paradise where the beauty of mother
nature meets the magic of Disney. [music]>>Phil: Okay, it’s made down here just give me a little more on that starboard lowers. Snug it up that’s

Castaway Cay trams. The first tram is located a short walk from the Arrival
Plaza and will drop you off right at the children’s adventure area and Scuttle’s Cove next to the first aid station. The second tram runs between Palm’s

white sand beaches. Sports enthusiasts get into the act with an incredible
variety of water activities. You’ll find swimming floats available for rental on

your floats in advance onboard. [music]>>Snorkeling fans, both beginners and pros
will experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity exploring the underwater reef condos and Castaway Cay’s twelve acres snorkeling lagoon. The ongoing creation of this amazing ecosystem has been a joint project between marine biologist from Epcot’s Living Seas Pavilion and Disney’s Animal Kingdom
theme park, along with Mother Nature herself. By adding these specially designed man-made structures marine research has been able
to provide homes to attract many species of corals and other marine animals. Please remember we’re all visitors in this very fragile underwater world. Always respect the natural environment and leave it and its many treasures just
as pristine as when you found it so that others may enjoy it too. [music]>. Announcer: Snorkeling equipment rentals are

poisonous so stay on the trail and remember to take only pictures and leave
