Disney Cruise Line typically releases their itineraries approximately 15-ish months or so in advance. This is not to say that they always do it that way – which is why we say 'ish' – but over the years, this is what we have generally seen.
One of the most important things to know when you're starting to think about going on a Disney Cruise is that pricing will be at its lowest on the first day that particular cruise can be booked. Keep in mind that as the ships fill up, the cruise price increases.
Upon booking, guests must pay a deposit. The deposit amount will be determined at the time of booking.
The newest version of the Disney Cruise Line app allows guests to prepare for their cruise prior to leaving on their voyage. Once your reservation has been made, you can use the app to conveniently make payments, check-in for your cruise, make reservations for premium dining experiences like Palo and/or Remy, and even book select port adventures.
Dreams Unlimited Travel has many unique programs for Disney Cruise Line guests. Most important of all is that your Dreams Unlimited Travel agent will constantly check for better rates and specials in an effort to lower the overall cost of your vacation. For example, if you make your reservation on release day, and a new promotion becomes available before your pay-in-full date, Dreams Unlimited Travel will work to convert that reservation to the new program (provided it lowers the cost). While we obviously can't guarantee this with every reservation, it's not an unusual occurrence when it happens.
