    On the day when I can start booking cruise activities, when does the booking window open? What should I be looking to book, other than port excursions? I am going to be on the Disney Wish.

    Douglas, welcome back to planDisney! 

    How exciting! Not only are you cruising on the beautiful Disney Wish, but it’s also a themed Halloween sailing. Before I share some of the fun activities you’ll find onboard, let’s determine your booking window.

    Your Castaway Club Membership level determines your booking window. If it’s your first cruise, you can begin booking activities 75 days before your sail date if your cruise is paid in full. The more times you have sailed with Disney, the sooner you can book activities. Don’t worry; you don’t have to grab a calendar and start counting. Sign in to your reservation on the Disney Cruise Line website, and you’ll find the date you can book activities under “Cruise Details” and next to “Cruise Activities.”  The activities will open at midnight Eastern Time. 

    Besides Port Adventures, you can reserve spa and salon services, nursery time, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointments, Olaf’s Royal Picnic, adult-only dining, beverage tastings, and photo packages. The coveted reservations seem to be for brunch at Palo Steakhouse and Olaf’s Royal Picnic. They are the hardest reservations to secure, so if you are interested in either, I’d make those my first stop on the Cruise Activities page. You can find Olaf’s Royal Picnic under “Onboard Fun” and Palo under “Adult Dining.”

    Douglas, your sailing is also a Halloween on the High Seas voyage, with spooktacular activities happening all over the ship. Best of all, these do not have to be reserved in advance; just show up and enjoy the special character meet and greets, Trick-or-Treating, and ghoulish games. Captain Minnie is still putting the finishing touches on the Halloween festivities, so keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as fall approaches. 

    I can’t wait for you to step aboard and explore the Disney Wish. You are going to have such a wonderful time! Please stop by again with any more questions. I am delighted to help!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime.
