What are the things i should so IMMEDIATELY at the 120 day mark?

We booked a concierge room and because of it we can book stuff at the 120 day mark. What are things we MUST book at that time to get ahead of everyone else?

This is our first Disney Cruise by the way... on the Fantasy on the 7-day Eastern cruise.

If you want a cabana at Castaway Cay then that is the FIRST thing you need to do.

Palo, Remy reservations

Yep: Some things go real quickly and since you are on the Fantasy, there is at least one more (BBB).

1. Adult Dining: Palo brunch goes the quickest, then Palo Dinner, Remy Brunch and Remy Dinner.

2. Cabanas at CC: The family cabanas and Adult cabanas go quick especially during summer break.

3. Bippidi Boppidi Boutique/Pirate League: The Pirate League appts on Pirate Night Day go quickly so if you are thinking of having your kids get made up for Pirate Night, I would grab one of those.

4. Excursions you don't want to miss: Most excursions don't sell out, but I wouldn't take a chance if there is one you really want to do... You can always cancel it later.

I would say cabanas are number 1, with BBB being number 2. You're sailing concierge, so you'll get whatever Palo and Remy reservation you want. They even hold about half of the reservations back to book once you're on board. Excursions are important, but not at the 120 day mark.

I agree, cabanas would be first if you want one... Then BBB and adult dining...

Be careful not getting Palo/Remy reservations. PP is correct they keep a limited number ressies back for concierge, but they sometimes don't have them for every time slot available. If you wait for concierge to get them for you, the time slot you want may not be available... especially brunch. We have sailed concierge several times and I speak from experience. We thought the same way the PP and did get Palo brunch on one of our first concierge cruises, just not when we wanted. Now we do it ourselves just to make sure.
