    This our first time on a cruise, and I would like to know how far in advance we can book on board and port adventures?

    Ahoy, Virginia!

    Thanks for stopping by, and for using the Disney Parks Moms Panel as a planning resource for your first Disney Cruise! I'm so happy to hear you're setting sail on your first Disney Cruise Line vacation. I always get excited when someone tells me they're cruising with Disney for the very first time, because I know how much they're going to love it!

    It's so much fun to plan a Disney Cruise, and one of the the best parts of planning is booking Onboard Activities. These activities include: Port Adventures, Nursery time, Spa/Fitness, Adult-exclusive dining, and other Onboard Fun. Once your cruise is paid in full, you'll be able to login on the Disney Cruise Line website when your advance booking window opens and make reservations. (I always make sure to process the payment for our final balance a few days ahead of our advance booking window!)

    Advance booking windows are determined by your Castaway Club membership level:

    • First time Guests - 75 days prior to sail date
    • Silver Castaway Club Members - 90 days prior to sail date
    • Gold Castaway Club Members - 105 days prior to sail date
    • Concierge Guests/Platinum Castaway Club Members - 120 days prior to sail date
    I hope this helps with your planning. Let us know if you have more questions before your cruise! - Diane W.
