Disney Dream OBC and Castaway Cay Cabanas

If you are thinking about booking the January 30, 2011 sailing of the Disney Dream, Disney is offering a new promotion just for you!  When booking a category 4A through 6B stateroom with verandah and book using code DDO, you will qualify for an onboard credit of $100 per stateroom.  This cannot be combined with other offers and is subject to availability.

We also have updated information on the Cabanas on Castaway Cay.  Due to feedback from guests who have had a chance to experience the cabanas, Disney is making some changes to the amenities and pricing for the cabanas.  There are 16 cabanas on the family beach and 4 on the adult beach, Serenity Bay.  Each of these include:

  • Unlimited bottled water and soda
  • whole fruit
  • chips and granola bars
  • Coppertone suntan lotion basket
  • cool face cloths in the refrigerator
  • 8 beach towels
  • float or tube rental
  • 1 hour bike rental
  • selection of magazines

Snorkel equipment and sand toys are also included for the Family Beach Cabanas.

The price for the cabanas on the family beach is $499 for up to 6 guests.  The cabanas on the Serenity Bay Beach will be $399 for up to 4 guests.  Additional guests (up to 10 total) may be added for $50 per person.  Pricing is subject to change.

A wristband will be given when you book the cabanas prior to arrival at Castaway Cay.  This wristband will be required for access to the Cabana area and for the rentals.  The cabanas must be booked onboard at the Port Adventures desk or with Guest Services.

Cruising 101, Part 1

Many people are choosing to cruise as their choice of vacations these days.  It can be intimidating both for the new cruiser and the experienced cruiser however to book a cruise and then actually go on the cruise as there can be many differences between cruise lines and their policies/procedures.  I ran into this twice this year cruising on Celebrity and Norwegian cruise lines because I have cruised with Disney so many times, I just wasn’t sure about some things.

This blog will address many of the questions you may have regarding choosing a cruise, planning for the cruise, once onboard the cruise and disembarkation after the cruise.  The blog will be continued over a few days as there is so much information I don’t want to overwhelm you.  Once the topic has been covered, I will be including a link to our website with all the information there.  This will allow you to search for particular topics and allow us to update the information as necessary.  Please post questions that you may have so that we can answer them as well.
