    How do I become a castaway cay member?

    Welcome aboard, Raquel! Disney Cruise Line's Castaway Club is the club for guests who have sailed with Disney on at least one prior cruise. Guests automatically become Castaway Club members once they complete their very first sailing.

    Silver Castaway Club members are those who have sailed 1-4 times with Disney before. Those who have taken 5-9 sailings prior are Gold Castaway Club members. And guests who have completed over 10 prior cruises with Captain Mickey and his crew become Platinum Castaway Club members. 

    There are some great perks to being in the Castaway Club. Early booking when the new cruise itineraries are released, and earlier online check-in, meaning earlier access to booking those fun extras like Port Adventures and certain character experiences before they fill up. In addition to these things, Castaway Club members get a special gift in their stateroom when they arrive, as well as club level lanyards for each sailing and a faster check-in line at the port. The perks go up from there, and you can read more about the perks for each club level on the Castaway Club page of Disney's website. My family and I especially enjoy the Gold and Platinum Reception with the Captain onboard the longer sailings. My kids think it is so cool to hang out having snacks and drinks with the captain and his officers. It's a pretty special event!

    Once you finish your very first cruise with Disney Cruise Line, you'll receive a notice with your Castaway Club member numbers, Raquel! Enjoy your next cruise!
