    We are first time cruisers with our first cruise set to sail April 29 for 3 nights to the Bahamas and back. Question is: When will we get our castaway club number and how?

    Ahoy Lawrence!

    Congratulations on booking your very first sailing with Disney Cruise Line! From that very first “Welcome Aboard”, I hope you and your family are filled with excitement! We are happy to share all the tips and tricks that first time Disney cruisers need to know. I cannot wait for you to experience all the magic that is included with Disney Cruise Line, from deck parties to fireworks at sea, Broadway-caliber musicals and beloved Disney characters. 

    I love that you are so eager to cruise that you want to be a Castaway Club member already! Here’s how that works: at the end of your first Disney Cruise Line vacation, you are automatically enrolled as a Silver Member in the Castaway Club and are entitled to benefits such as early booking and advanced Online Check-In for your next voyages.

    You’ll receive this information in the mail after your first voyage, welcoming you to the club that’s made for cruising fans like you and me, Castaway Club! Disney Cruise Line created this exclusive club to reward frequent cruisers with extra perks like earlier advance booking window dates and a welcome back aboard gift. You can learn all about the various levels of membership and what that entails here. You could also call Disney Cruise Line to find out your Castaway Club number, but again, it won’t be available until you complete your April voyage. 

    Lawrence, before you know it, your DREAM vacation will be here. In the meantime, swim back over to planDisney if we can help you with more planning tips as you chart a course for an adventure at sea with Captain Mickey.

    Happy Sailing!
