Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I would like to go on a Disney cruise with my husband and two children.. Where should I book the cruise? Online what websites give the best deals? We will be celebrating both of my kids birthdays!
- - Asked by Rabia from Texas on 10/1/2013
- Welcome aboard, Rabia! I'm so happy to hear that you're looking to book a magical cruise vacation with Disney! We love the Disney Parks, but once we started sailing with Disney Cruise Line, we realized how much more magical a cruise can be! I'm sure you'll find the same!
The best time to book a cruise is as far out as possible. The best prices tend to be when the new itineraries are released, plus you'll have more options in choosing a stateroom that best fits your budget. I'm hoping to see the 2015 itineraries later this year, though I don't know exactly when that will be. The best way to book your cruise is directly through Disney Cruise Line or with your travel agent. Some travel agents can offer a nice onboard credit for booking through them. You won't find any deals websites offering discounts on Disney cruises, but you can check out the special promotions that Disney Cruise Line offers throughout the year.
Last year, we had already booked our cruise when we found out a few months before sailing that our sailing had become a Kids Sail Free promotional sailing. Since we had already booked it at the regular price, we were able to call Disney Cruise Line and switch our reservation around on that same ship and date to take advantage of the Kids Sail Free promotion! What a nice surprise!
When you make your reservations, be sure to let the agent know that you'll be celebrating your children's birthdays onboard. They can note that on your reservation so that Cast Members know and your little ones might be surprised with some special treatment onboard and a song at dinner!
Let me know what other questions you have as you begin to plan, Rabia! I'm happy to help!
