    We are booking 2nd cruise before taking 1st one in fear of prices rising. How will we take advantage of the silver castaway level since we are booking before we take our 1st cruise? We will be booking 3rd cruise onboard though! :)

    Ahoy, Amanda!

    It is wonderful to hEAR from you again. I can't tell you how much I love this question! You are a planner after my own heart reserving your second sailing before your first and already planning on cruise number three! You'll be taking advantage of Gold Castaway Club benefits before you know it. Woo hoo!

    Since you will not have completed your first cruise at the time of booking cruise number two, you will have to wait until bookings open up to the general public (if your future cruise has yet to be released). I'm not sure how far apart you are scheduling your first two sailings, but your Silver benefits will be effective immediately after your disembarkation (hopefully it will be before your 90-day window opens up). This is really what is most important since it allows you to reserve your Port Adventures and onboard experiences before first time cruisers. But, to take advantage of this early booking window, your cruise will need to be paid in full at the 90-day mark. 

    As soon as you disembark the ship Amanda, you'll be a Silver Castaway Club member! You'll be able to check out your status by logging your Castaway Club number on the Castaway Club page on the Disney Cruise Line website. If you don't receive your number by email, feel free to give the members-only line a call at (800) 449-3380.

    Thank you for continuing to send in your questions! We are always happy to help you with your magical plans.
