Castaway Club Member – Are you a veteran of Disney Cruising?


If you are then you know all about Disney Castaway Club.  Disney Cruise Line Castaway Club is a program that enhances your cruise experience with valuable benefits that you can enjoy on board and at home as well.

Once you get home from your first cruise, you become a Castaway Club member.  This will get you some amazing benefits that you can use to help your planning the next cruise.

There are many benefits to being a Castaway Club member.  You get to book shore excursions, child care at Flounder’s Reef Nursery, fine dining at Palo and pampering at Vista Spa & Salon in advance of first time cruisers.


While Guests sailing for the first time can book 75 days in advance of their sailing, Silver Castaway members can pre-book 90 days before sailing. Gold Castaway members get to book 105 days in advance and Platinum Castaway members enjoy the option of booking a full 120 days prior to sailing.

The first time I was a Castaway Club member I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into my stateroom to find a beautiful travel bag filled with goodies as a welcome back present.

This is one benefit that my husband loves – exclusive content on  This has the latest cruise news, behind-the-scenes information, videos and Castaway Club Compass newsletter.

When you check in at port you get complimentary Castaway Club lanyard and special Key to the World card.  This way cast members can see that you are a return cruiser.

The more you cruise the higher the club level you get:

Silver Castaway for Guests who’ve completed 1-4 sailings
Gold Castaway for Guests who’ve completed 5-9 sailings
Platinum Castaway for Guests who’ve completed 10 or more sailings

I am currently a silver Castaway Club member but come next November I will make Gold, I am so excited!  I want to let you know that our first cruise was years ago with the thought that it would be a once in a lifetime treat for our tenth wedding anniversary; well as you can tell we are addicted.  It is an experience that I recommend for everyone!!
