When you pack for your day at Castaway Cay, be sure to pack your autograph book and a pen!

While there are usually photographers at each character greeting, you may want to pack your own phone or camera just in case you stumble upon a character.

Worried about bringing your phone with you to Castaway Cay?  One thing I would recommend is this waterproof phone case.
