We had finally arrived in Bermuda!! We originally had booked resort stay here (not with Disney). Often on these Islands, resorts will offer day passes. We had booked the Coco Reef Resort. Day passes were $104 per adult and $55 per child and included use of their beach, pool and a 3-course lunch. Prior to setting sail the weather looked like it was going to be COLD so we cancelled.
Of course it turned out to be a beautiful day so while onboard we stopped at the Port Adventures Desk and chatted with an amazing cast member who helped us decide on a Disney excursion to Horseshoe Bay. Now something important to know here is that you can grab a taxi or bus for less than $10 per person however it was our first time here and we were traveling with Disney so we wanted to the peace of mind that we had reliable and safe transfers to the beach!
We didn’t have a super early excursion so we opted for Lumiere’s for breakfast…and it was delicious!!
After breakfast we packed our beach bags, grabbed our excursion tickets and headed to the theatre where we were instructed to meet up. We were then taken downstairs and off the ship. It was a beautiful day with sun and a bit of wind.
We boarded a small bus (several of them) and we were off! The Island was just beautiful and we got a great view of the ship! Our bus driver was excellent and told us facts about the Island as we drove.
Before long we had arrived! There is no cost to visit the beach but they do have a little shop with souvenirs and drinks, a bar/restaurant and you can rent chairs and umbrella’s. A beach chair or umbrella rents for $15 each, or two chairs & an umbrella is $40. There is also bathrooms and showers not far from the beach.
We grabbed 2 chairs and an umbrella and set up. We’ve been to a few islands in the Caribbean before but I wasn’t prepared for how beautiful the beach was going to be!!
The kids and hubby set off to build a sand castle!
Finally it was warming up and we were ready to hit the waves!
We spent almost the entire time in the water and it was so incredible. The waves weren’t TOO strong but enough that the girls had a blast. It was cool but not cold…overall just the perfect beach day!
It was time to pack up! We hit the showers, changed and hopped back on our bus to go to the ship. The bus driver was amazing and shared more about the island as we drove back.
Nothing like some sun and sea to make you sleepy!
World’s Smallest Bridge!!
There she is!!
After we got onboard we grabbed some snacks, including ice cream (we didn’t eat at the beach).
I can’t get enough of these views!!
Since it was so beautiful out and the ship was still pretty empty, the girls asked to swim and ride the slide…they even got Dad up there (before his nap)!
Soon it was time to get ready for dinner and a show..but tonight we skipped the act in the Walt Disney Theatre and opted to See Christopher Robin instead!
And of course some character meet and greet’s after the movie, before dinner!
They were mesmerized by the sea!
Finally the night we had been waiting for…dinner at Rapunzel’s! It was beautiful inside and my cell camera just didn’t do it justice!!
The little touches were amazing!
Apparently I was too excited to take a clear picture…check out Finley’s face!
The kids ate pretty much the same every night…mac and cheese, pizza or burgers!
My favorite was near the end of dinner where there were floating lanterns all over the restaurant. I may have gotten a little teary!! Sorry no food pictures but rest assured it was delicious!!
It was a great day and I had seriously fallen in love with Bermuda!! Stay tuned for our 2nd day in Bermuda!!
