    My Granddaughter and I went on the DCL last October and I was wondering what the Castaway Club is. I was told that after the first cruise we would start getting info on up coming cruises. Did I hear wrong.

    Hi there, Kathleen!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with your question and trust that you had a magical adventure and made many memories onboard your first Disney Cruise Line vacation last yEAR!  And hopefully you are considering setting sail once again with Captain Mickey.  With so many itineraries to choose from and four ships to explore, you can be guaranteed to “sea” and experience new things with each voyage you take!

    As a previous Disney Cruise Line Guest, you are automatically part of the Castaway Club, which is Disney Cruise Line’s way of recognizing returning Guests!  At the conclusion of your first Disney Cruise Line vacation, you are automatically enrolled as a Silver Member of the Castaway Club and are entitled to benefits such as early booking and advanced Online Check-In!  After you’ve set sail with Captain Mickey for five voyages, you will move up to Gold Member status and after ten voyages you will be a Platinum Castaway Club member!  While benefits are always subject to change, a full list of current benefits can be found online, where you can also log in and see your current status!  Since my family has quite a few voyages under our belt, it’s often fun to look back at each of the different voyages we went on and to compare stateroom selections and itineraries!  If you do not have your Castaway Club member number, give Disney Cruise Line a call at (800) 951-3532 and they will be able to provide that for you!

    Disney Cruise Line just recently released itineraries through early 2021, and there are some exciting and unique voyages!  While it may seem far off, now is the perfect time to book that next Disney Cruise Line vacation to make even more memories -- and take advantage of those early booking privileges!!  If you have any additional questions about booking – or once you’ve gotten your next voyage booked, please come back!  We are more than happy to help make this another magical and memorable adventure at sea!
