    I will be sailing on the Disney Magic in March 2020 and I am trying to find the price of the cabanas on Castaway? Also, I am trying to figure out if I can prepay the minimum tip amount and also give cash if needed at the end?

    Welcome aboard, Jennifer!

    This time next year, your family will be setting sail on the high seas with Disney Cruise Line! Have you downloaded the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App yet? I start the app's cruise countdown every time I book a cruise, and it's a lot of fun to check and follow along! Plus, you'll want that app once onboard to be able to check the schedule of events, text with others in your group, view maps and menus and so much more!

    When your online check-in opens 75 days prior to sailing for first time guests and 90 or more days prior for those who have sailed with Disney before, you'll be able to begin booking extras, including the private cabanas on Castaway Cay. Those book up quickly, so if this is your first sailing, be sure to log on right away, as there's a chance you might still get one if you hurry. Pricing is always subject to change, but currently, the cost is $599 or $649, depending on season. The season is split in March, so your trip may fall into the peak or off peak season depending on exact sail dates, but you can verify this when you begin online check-in. The adult exclusive cabanas at Serenity Bay on Castaway Cay are currently $399.

    As far as gratuities for your onboard Cast Members like dining servers and stateroom hosts, those can certainly be pre-paid or simply charged to your stateroom account at the end of the cruise. My family and I always bring extra cash to tuck into the tip envelopes for our favorites as well, or we stop by guest services to request an additional amount over the traditional gratuity amount be charged to our account, so you've got a couple options there, Jennifer!

    Have such fun planning!
