    I sailed on the Dream Sept. 16.While on the boat we did a place holder. When placing on board credits were still offered. I know they took away on board credits a few weeks after. I just placed my reservation for April 2021. Will I get the on board credit?

    Hi there, Mary!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  And…WELCOME BACK from your recent Disney Cruise Line vacation!  If your return has been anything like mine typically are, it sure is hard getting “back to reality” after an exciting adventure with Captain Mickey!   Each night I hope for chocolates on my pillow or unique towel animals….but they just don’t seem to appEAR!

    I am going to go ahead and assume that you had the most magical adventure with Captain Mickey, and you are likely eagerly awaiting your NEXT Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Booking a placeholder or your next voyage while onboard always makes that final swipe of your Key to the World Card a little easier…because you know you will be back for another memorable adventure!  I am so glad you came by with your question about the benefits that are attached to an onboard booking because you are correct, recently Disney Cruise Line has changed some of those!  You are in luck, though, because since your voyage was before the changes were put into effect, the benefits, including the onboard credit, is still applicable to your reservation.

    So, now that you have your reservation booked, you can sit back and wait for your Online Check-In and onboard booking window to open!  Now that you are an official Silver Castaway Club member, you get the benefit of booking and checking-in 90 days out!  So, mark that date on your calendar because it will be here before you know it!

    Please come back with any other questions you may have!
