New Castaway Club Gift

Just back from our Disney Dream 4-nt and had to share the news...

There are NEW gifts for returning cruisers (Castaway Club).

This included a nice backpack with 2 large compartments, side compartments, an outlet for your MP3 device cord as well as snacks (package of pretzels and package of goldfish shaped like mickey heads) and a keychain with DCL logo which spins.

I think this is a nice upgrade -- especially the snacks - I always thought the flipflop marshmallow treats tasted stale.

Wow that looks nice

So only returning customers are eligible for such a gift?

Yes, first time DCL cruisers don't get a gift. From your second cruise forward though, each stateroom with a returning customer gets one of these.

Apparently, if you are gold (5+ cruises with DCL) or platinum (10+ cruises) there are additional items or gifts but this was our fifth cruise so were still Silver when we got this.

Also, I visited another family to checkout their inside cabin (thank you to Judy) and saw that not all of the cabins got the same gift - their kids' room had the old style gift. I suspect that our cruise was the transition point and they were phasing out the old and going to the new ones.

We did it Disneyland, in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year. Walt Disney

Well just entered my room on wonder and what a surprise! The same gift pack was on my bed! This is my first cruise so I am not sure why I received the gift I booked my cruise with my Disney visa so that could have helped.

We were on the Magic last week and got both the red/black drawstring bag and the blue/black backpack. Maybe they are giving both away until the tote bags are gone

How big is the new backpack? Is it kiddie sized or adult sized? How much would it hold for an excursion--a few towels and water bottles? Thanks!

It is adult sized and you could fit at least 2 towels, plus several water bottles, snacks, sunscreen etc... There is an open pocket in the front, a middle zipper compartment with an opening for headphones and a main large compartment.

I went onto the DCL site to double check these as I though gold started after the 5th cruise and they have it listed this way:

Silver Begins after your 1st completed cruise, Gold Begins after your 5th completed cruise and Platinum Begins after your 10th completed cruise.

Just didn't want someone to think they were a level that they aren't.

We are in the middle of planning our second ever cruise. I had no idea the CC gift was so substantial so kudos to Disney!!

You'll just have to plan a few more cruises.

Yea for you!! Was anyone else in your cabin a return cruiser? If so, that is why there was a gift. As long as there is at least one return cruiser, you get the gift.
If not, count your blessings and have a terrific cruise! Wish I was getting on DCL cruise tonight....
