    My family is planning a disney cruise in October of 2017. I want to put my deposit on our cruise asap but might have to change the reservation in 6 months to add my parents on the cruise can we do that? Also do we need to bring car seats on the magicalexp

    Welcome aboard, Lynnette!

    Sailing with Disney is always magical, but it's even more fun when you sail with extended family and friends. Some of our favorite cruises have been those when the kids' grandparents joined us! Go ahead and book your cruise when your immediate family is ready to do so. Your parents can be added on as a separate or connecting stateroom, or even in your stateroom if there is room. Disney's staterooms can sleep up to five, depending on which category you book. As long as your name is the main name on the reservation, you can change and add to the additional guests on the reservation up until 75 days prior to departure. However, don't wait too long to book your parents onto the trip, as at times, a particular sailing may sell out, and you may not be able to add them, even to your own stateroom, as only so many guests can be onboard. The agents at Disney Cruise Line can be reached at (800) 951-3532, and they'll be happy to help you get your cruise booked and give you any other details about adding additional guests. 

    Disney Cruise Line does not offer a complimentary Magical Express service like you might have experienced at the Walt Disney World Resort. However, they do have ground transfers in the same types of motor coaches between the airport, cruise port, and the resorts at Walt Disney World. The cost is currently $35 per person, each way, for these transfers, and I promise it's the easiest way to transition from land to sea and back again, letting Disney take care of the details. The motorcoach does not accommodate car seats, so no need to bring those, unless you'll be needing them in a car after your cruise is over. 

    Have fun as you begin planning this exciting trip, Lynnette!
