    We became Gold Castaway Club members this year. What benefits do we get that the Silver members don't enjoy?

    Welcome aboard, Ana Marie! Congratulations on completing your fifth sailing with Disney Cruise Line, and welcome to the Gold Castaway Club! As Silver Castaway Club members, you probably really enjoyed those early booking benefits when you were able to begin booking all the fun extras like Port Adventures and Adult Exclusive dining 90 days prior to sailing, a full 15 days prior to when first time cruisers got to select those. Well, as Gold Castaway Club members, you'll now get to begin your online activity planning 105 days prior to sailing! You'll certainly love that you can plan that far out, allowing you to have top selection of some of those most popular activities that book up quickly!

    In addition, your family will now be invited to the Castaway Club Onboard Reception (on sailings of four nights or longer) exclusively for Gold and Platinum members. My family and I love this reception, as we get to chat and mingle with the ship's officers. Last cruise, my kids had a really great time sitting down with the captain of the Dream and he was so wonderful answering all of their questions while we enjoyed snacks and specialty drinks.

    You'll also get special merchandise offerings onboard, so keep an eye out for that once you're on the ship. And of course, as you check in at the port terminal, you'll receive a Gold Castaway Club member lanyard, and special gift in your stateroom. The gifts are different based on membership level, and change occasionally, so I can't tell you exactly what you'll receive, but we've always loved our surprise stateroom gift, regardless of club level.

    Log into your Castaway Club account for even more details and have fun as you plan your next magical cruise with Captain Mickey and his crew, Ana Marie! Cheers to your new Gold membership!
