    Hi Andi, We will be taking the Bahama cruise with our 6 year old daughter in July, we are paid in full, do we have to wait until May to sign up for onboard activities and special dining? Thanks!

    Hi, Ron!

    Congratulations on your upcoming cruise this summer aboard Disney Cruise Line (DCL)! Guests who have completed at least one DCL cruise are considered Castaway Club members and are allowed to book shore excursions, adult dining and spa experiences up to 120 days before sail date -- depending on how many cruises they've completed :

    • Silver (after first cruise) -- 90 days
    • Gold (after fifth cruise) -- 105 days
    • Platinum (after tenth cruise) -- 120 days

      For first-time DCL guests, amenities and port adventures can be booked up to 75 days in advance. Therefore, if this is your first Disney cruise and depending on the actual date of embarkation, your window of opportunity should be opening up for you very soon!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
