Specify When Your Cruise Will Be or Was Booked:


Online Pre-Booking Dates

Disney Cruise Line determines the earliest date that you can pre-book activities online (e.g. Palo/Remy dining, excursions, kids club, spa treatments, etc.) based upon your Castaway Club status. Enter your sail date above and this chart will display the various booking dates for each status.

Your Castaway Club Status* Earliest Date**
Platinum Castaway Club (10+ previous cruises) and Concierge guests can pre-book up to 120 days in advance of the sailing 8/17/2017

Final Payment Date Rules

Disney Cruise Line determines the final payment due date based upon the type of cruise (i.e. duration, embark or debark ports, and whether it falls on a holiday), concierge stateroom status, certain ports of call (e.g. Alaska), and also when you booked your cruise (as Disney's policies have changed over time). Enter your sail date above, specify the book date, and this chart will display the various final payment date rules for each cruising scenario. To determine the final payment date that applies to your cruise, start from the top and continue down until you find an entry where all of the 'Cruise Characteristics' shown match those of your cruise.
