    Hi we are planning to take a cruise in 2016 when booking do we have to pay everything upfront ?

    Ahoy, Carmen! 

    I am so excited for you to be planning your cruise in 2016! It looks like we should expect the summer and fall of 2016 itineraries to be released soon!

    When you book your Disney Cruise Line vacation, you will need to pay a 20% deposit of your total cruise fare. This is all you will need to pay until 75 days prior to your sailing, which is your "paid in full" (PIF) date. You can always pay some of what you owe when it is convenient for you, you will just need the final payment made by the PIF date. Since you are a new cruiser, you will be able to book your Port Adventures or Adult Dining reservations once you are at your 75 days prior to sailing.

    Your Port Adventures will be charged to your stateroom once you are onboard, and you will pay those fees while on your cruise. You can also expect to be charged for your gratuities, drinks, and Adult dining experiences once you are onboard.

    I hope this helps with your cruise planning! Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions as they arise throughout your planning.

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
