Grand Cayman Disney Cruise
ne of the stops on our Disney Fantasy Western Caribbean cruise was Grand Cayman. I was personally excited about this stop because I had researched how easy it was to get around the island. When we arrived we walked about 2 blocks to the local bus stop, paid $2 per person and went to the Turtle Farm. The bus ride was about 45 mins with stops. It was comfortable but overall an unremarkable ride. The best part was talking with the locals that used the bus also! They were very friendly and didn’t mind us asking them questions at all. To find the bus when you exit the terminal look for the square with the clock tower. We had to walk 1 block left, make a right and then another 2 blocks but depending on where your ship docks it could be different. The bus stop is right next to the square with the clock tower. We did not need any local currency.
hen we arrived at the Turtle Farm we decided to walk just past the entrance and eat at The Cracked Conch. The food was delicious and the view was fantastic but with our large party (10 people) it was a slow meal. I was anxious to get to the turtle farm so I wasn’t thrilled sitting that long and our kids were super fussy honestly.
Once we entered the Turtle Farm we showed them our pre-purchased tickets, were given a map and we headed in. The Turtle Farm raises turtles for both food and release. They are attempting to provide all of the turtles necessary for the locals (and tourists) to eat to protect the ative wild population. As tough as it is to swallow that people eat these beautiful creatures it isn’t much different than eating a chicken or a cow.
The best part of the Turtle Farm was getting to hold baby turtles! We spent the most time in this section. he adult males in our group found the giant green iguanas at the farm the most entertaining.
Overall, we spent about 1.5 hours there but we could have spent a bit more time. There was a museum building we didn’t even get a chance to enter.
Catching the bus back was super easy! Stay on the same side as the Turtle Farm and wait until you see the “bus” (it’s a van.) Give them a wave and they will stop. Simply tell them you are headed back to the cruise port and you are good to go. The ride is $2 pp (excluding infants who can sit on your lap.)
