    What are the new Online cruise check-in windows for new cruisers and all Castaway Club members?

    Ahoy Tim!

    So nice to "sea" you again at planDisney with another great question. With the recent addition of the Pearl Castaway Club Membership tier Disney Cruise Line guests can now enjoy more benefits than ever before. From booking new itineraries to scheduling cruise activities, Castaway Club members are sure to enjoy smooth sailing with every voyage.

    First time cruisers can check-in and select a Port Arrival Time (PAT) 30 days prior to sailing. Silver members who have already completed at least one Disney Cruise Line sailing are able to check in 33 days prior. Guests are considered Gold Castaway Club members once they've completed 5 sailings and can complete their online check-in 35 days prior, with Platinum and Pearl members able to check-in at 38 and 40 days respectively. I always try to complete my online check-in as soon as my window opens to ensure the earliest PAT available. We love spending those early hours of embarkation day enjoying the ship before it's officially time to sail away!

    You can review all the benefits available to Castaway Club members and confirm your current membership level. When it's time to check-in for your next sailing navigate to "My Reservations" under the "Already Booked" tab. Be sure to have the necessary identification documents available for each member of your Stateroom in order to expedite the process.

    I'm slowly working my way toward Platinum membership, and look forward to enjoying a complimentary dinner reservation at Palo once I've gotten those 10 Disney Cruise Line vacations under my belt. I'm also eager to snag some of the adorable new Castaway Club Stateroom gifts that were recently announced. Head on over to the official Disney Cruse Line Instagram page to see my panel buddy Tracie share the goods.

    Tim, I hope this was helpful. Please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again with more questions. We're always all hands on deck here at planDisney!

    Bon voyage,
