    Hi. We are DVC members in Australia. Finally Disney cruises are coming to Australia and its going to be very popular! I read 'some' DVC members get early access to booking but can't find out who that it?! How do we find out if we are elgible?

    Ahoy, David!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.  It sounds like you were as excited as I was to hear all the news from the D23 Expo last weekend!  With incredible updates to Disney Parks around the world and tons of new movies and series on the horizon, there's lots of magic coming in the next few years.  But if I had to guess, I bet the news you were most excited to hear is that Disney has plans to make a big splash Down Under –– Disney Cruise Line is officially headed to Australia and New Zealand in 2023 and 2024!

    With the undoubted popularity of these itineraries, it's going to be best to book as early as possible, which is great news for Disney Vacation Club Members! That's because eligible Disney Vacation Club Members can book many of these sailings –– along with Castaway Club Silver Members and Adventures By Disney Insiders –– beginning in Australia on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, at 8 AM AEST (that's September 27th, here in the States).  To be eligible for this early booking window, you'll need to be a Disney Vacation Club Member with access to Membership Extras.  This means that you've purchased a qualifying real estate interest directly from Disney Vacation Club (or have a grandfathered contract that includes these benefits).  If you're not sure whether or not your Membership qualifies for Membership Extras, I suggest giving Member Services a call at 800-8009-8000 before that booking window opens on September 28th.

    Thanks so much for visiting planDisney, David.  I hope this helped to answer your question and I'm wishing you a high seas adventure with Disney Cruise Line that's filled with plenty of Membership magic next year!
