I guess the plats who are booking July and most of August are already within the 120d and therefore paying now can book now. I am gold and have booked for September, and I see on my disney account page it says can start booking in June which is 105 days before.
Thank you for checking, I will update the first post :)

Do we know when the kids' club will be available for booking? At the 120/105/90 day mark, or at the 30 day mark?
I've a feeling the kids club will be these cruises CC Cabanas!

Disney Magic At Sea Know Before You Leave Home

You are required to reserve your spot for popular complimentary activities, including showtimes for our West-End-style shows, fitness center and yoga sessions, and time at the youth clubs. Reservations can be made online or through the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning 30 days and up to two days prior to the date you set sail. While we do not recommend you wait, remaining reservation times can be booked on the ship through the app (pending availability).

I was told that extras you can normally book and pay for (e.g. Palo) is the 120/105/90/75 and stuff that is normally free but has to be booked due to covid restrictions is from 30 days out for everyone.

I’ve seen on Facebook someone who booked today confirm they’ve already been able to book Palo and a beverage seminar.
It’s the stuff you don’t normally have to book, e.g. theatre and kids club slots, that are 30 days out...

    Those booking tomorrow (Silver CC members and I think it's DVC too, but need to check) is Thursday the 29th and first time cruisers or general sale is Friday the 30th of April. Thought it might be helpful to clarify in case it confuses people 🙂

    For anyone else who has older kids I have just read on another site that the older kids clubs edge and vibe will be open with more details to be released soon. Was posted on social media by a TA who had spoken to DCL. I was hoping they would be, maybe with the older kids as they are all wearing masks and can social distance better might not be as restricted with times and bookings?

    When we did the transatlantic in 2014, we were given a lovely piece of artwork by Don ducky Williams. I wonder will they do something like that for these special cruises?

    What's everyones general sense n off pricing??? Too expressive, about what you thought???
    It was around what I expected for normal rooms and concierge was actually cheaper than I expected weirdly

    Updated Info from people who are booking
    • Government issued ID will be required for all passengers
    • 20% deposit required at booking , 3 day hold from time of booking to when deposit needs to be paid, then the balance needs to be paid 30 days before departure
    • If Paid In Full at time of booking, booking for Palo and other upcharge items opens as Platinum are inside the normal DCL booking window of 120 days and Gold Castaway members are inside the normal DCL booking window of 105 days.
    • Back To Back Booking allowed
    • Palo will be $45 for a 4 course fixed price menu / A la Carte menu
    • Vaccination status will be verified though NHS App
    So NHS app doesn't work for any country but England!

    There is a Scottish version as well, and I'm sure the other nations also do. (Even Gibraltar has a version I believe)
    Wales don't have a version currently

    Today we are booking for our fourth Disney cruise, but this will be the first time booking using a travel agent - Dreams Unlimited, of course. It is weird to just be sat here, not having to worry about getting on the phone and being on hold on the Silver opening day. Just have to patiently wait to see what we get. 😊

    I'd love a travel agent to write about their experience. I was very frustrated yesterday - being Gold and 70 mins on hold to book a cruise, which has a price point much higher than their competitors. I don't think its much to ask of Disney to have a better system in place to enable early booking.

    I do wonder what the experience is for the travel agents...

    I think many have hoped for a while for an upgraded on-line booking system that could allow for access via the Castaway level.
