    Hi there, I am a DVC member from Australia. I read that we may be able to have early access to the Australian Disney Cruises from 28th Sept. How do I get access to the early bookings?

    Ahoy there, Sarah! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your holiday planning question. I love chatting Disney with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member! 

    Weren't you SO thrilled to hear that Disney Cruise Line will be setting sail from New Zealand and Australia?! I know I was! As I type this, my daughter and I are watching the latest season of our beloved Bluey (for the 15th time, at least), and my daughter is wishing upon a star that she will be able to see where Bluey lives. How exciting that these incredible cruises will set sail right from your backyard! Since these new New Zealand & Australian Cruises are limited-time sailings and so unique, they are sure to be super popular. So, let's chat about how you can book early to reserve your spot!

    If you will be using your DVC Points towards at least one Guest's reservation in your cruising party, just contact DVC Member Services at 800-8009-8000, and once you reach Member Services, dial "3" to reach a Cruise Advisor to book your cruise early. If you plan on booking your cruise by paying with cash only, make your reservation on the Disney Cruise Line website. To gain access to early booking, just be sure that you are logged in using your usual Disney login so that the system will recognize that you are a DVC Member. It really is Disney Magic at Sea!

    Sarah, eligible DVC Members, Castaway Club Silver Members and Adventures by Disney Insiders can book as early as 8:00 a.m. AEST on September 28, 2022, in Australia. Happy early booking and sailing, my friend! 

    I hope this was helpful, Sarah, and I hope you book the Disney Cruise Line sailing of your dreams using your DVC Membership magic. Please stop by any time with any holiday planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    Bon voyage!
