    How soon can I book a cabana on Castaway Cay?

    Welcome aboard, Susan! It sounds like you have a magical sailing booked with Disney Cruise Line! My family and I love sailing with Captain Mickey and his friends, and one of our favorite ports of call is Disney Cruise Line's private island, Castaway Cay.

    First time guests with Disney Cruise Line can begin their online check-in, where they can book all sorts of extras, at 75 days prior to setting sail. There, you'll be able to choose Port Adventures, Adult Exclusive Dining, Spa Treatments, and yes, the private cabanas on Castaway Cay. Now, please know that guests who have sailed with Disney before get to begin their bookings earlier: 90 days ahead for Silver Castaway Club Members, 105 days for Gold, and 120 days for Platinum. The private cabanas on Castaway Cay are very popular and sell out quickly, so I recommend you log into your reservation as soon as you're able to do so, and try to book one right away. If they're all taken, you can keep checking back, as guests may cancel in the weeks leading up to the cruise. Also, check onboard as soon as you arrive, because there may be last minute cancelations.

    I hope you're able to book one of those fabulous private cabanas on the beach at Castaway Cay, Susan. If not, don't worry because Disney's private island has plenty of lounge chairs, umbrellas, sunny spots, shady spots, and hammocks for guests to enjoy throughout the island!

    Have fun planning!
