    Do you have to purchase the food and beverage packages in advance or can you wait until you're on the ship? Can you buy the mug once you're on board?

    Hi there, Heather!

    Wow!  Your vacation is just a few sleeps away!  I am so excited for you cruise aboard the Disney Dream with not one, but TWO stops at Castaway Cay!  Castaway Cay might be one of my favorite things about Disney Cruise Line and the opportunity to spend two days there sounds like a dream come true!

    You can pre-purchase the wine or beer packages through Gift & Amenities OR you can purchase it once onboard, which is what we typically do.  If you are going to purchase the wine package to be served with your dinners, you can order that from your dining room servers and if you are wanting the beer mug package you can get that from any of the bars or lounges.  There will also be stations set up on the pool deck on embarkation day selling these packages where you can stop and place your order!  If you are wanting any of the specialty food items such as fruit baskets or chocolates delivered to your stateroom, those would need to be purchased ahead of time and at least three days prior to your sail date.

    Have you heard about the onboard beverage tastings offered by Disney Cruise Line?  These ticketed events are so much fun and give you the chance to try new things and meet other onboard Guests!  We always try to reserve one ahead of time on “My Cruise Activities”, but you can also check for availability once onboard!  If they are unavailable, do add yourself to the waitlist as sometimes plans change for other Guests and you will get your chance!

    Wishing you a wonderful and magical vacation, Heather!  I am envious of the fun in the sun you will be having at Castaway Cay this week!

    Happy Sailing!
