    We completed our first Disney cruise Nov 15, 2008 and understand we are now Castaway Club members. Should we have received anything from Disney (member number, etc) indicating we are Castaway Club members?

    Some do, and some just don't, myself being the latter.

    You can call DCL and request your CC numbers, that is all you basically do need to insure any future bookings have your CC number in it, to qualify for a few things, ex: early booking for excursions, a CC gift in your cabin.

    We would'nt have recieved anything had I not emailed and requested it. But you honestly don't need it....with the exception of the number that is.

    I too was on the Nov 15 cruise. When I called and asked about the cc number, they gave them to me, but added they are no longer sending out cards with the numbers on them. I don't know if anything else will be eventually sent, but no cards are being issued anymore.

    I went on a 4/2006 cruise and never got anything. I called DCL for our Castaway Club numbers and made sure our current booking has our numbers on them too. I also requested they mail out Castaway Club cards to us and they did. I got them in a few weeks after calling.

    When I was speaking to a CM re our current cruise ressies for hte 4/12 Easter cruise I was told the same as Waltworshiper that nothing is being sent out anymore. I had my CC numbers emailed to me so they are now in my outlook and accessable whenever I will need them again. :)

    We just went on our second Disney Cruise. We were told we would rec'v a special gift onboard. We didn't rec'v any number prior to cruise. I don't want to spoil the surprise but we were pleasantly surprised! For those seasoned cruisers, do they do that for every cruise hereafter?!?! Love Disney!!!!!!!!!

    Glad it worked out even though you didn't know!

    It wouldn't have worked that way for me unfortunately. I booked our previous cruise under my maiden name since it was our honeymoon and we moved to another state so they had no idea we were the same people!

    Thanks for the replies. We e-mailed DCL and they promptly sent the Castaway Club member number for all four of our family. We're really looking forward to our surprise gift when we sail again Nov 2010!
