    Hi Angie - Wanting to book our first Disney cruise ASAP for the beginning of December out of Galveston. But I'm a little uncertain if I should do myself or through an agent. I typically book trips myself but there appears to be incentives w/an agent.

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, April!

    I am so excited to hear that you are planning your very FIRST Disney cruise!  There is so much magic included when you sail with Captain Mickey.  After our family's first high seas adventure, we found ourselves on a quest to experience ALL of the Disney Cruise Line itineraries!

    With all of the planning tools available through Disney Cruise Line including videos, Vacation Planning Specialists available by phone and the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I was able to plan my family's first cruise myself. 

    Start by selecting your sailing from Galveston and then pick your stateroom.  You can start making plans once your cruise is paid in full and you are within your advance booking window, which may be immediate if sailing in early December of this year.  Book your Port Adventures and choose onboard activities like treatments in Senses Spa and Salon, time in the "it's a small world" nursery if you have pirates under the age of three, or reservations at the adult exclusive restaurants Palo and Remy.

    If you would like personalized assistance from a travel professional, some agents may offer an incentive to book your vacation through them.  You would need to contact an agent directly to get details about what they may offer.

    Please cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel when you book your vacation if you need any help navigating the planning process.  We love to help sprinkle some pixie dust and ensure smooth sailing for your entire pirate crew and their first voyage!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
