    Hi Beth, Loved your profile. I would love to plan a cruise for OCT/NOV of 2018 to celebrate both my husband's 50th and daughters 16th Birthdays, where do I start? Also, are there payment options available?

    Ahoy, Cassandra!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm honored to help you begin planning your husband's and daughter's birthday cruise extravaganza aboard Disney Cruise Line. Guess what? Disney Cruise Line just announced New Destinations for Fall 2018 today! Booking for these exciting destinations opens next week!

    First, I want to say you're already starting off on the right foot: You're beginning the planning process early! The earlier you book a Disney Cruise, the better the prices and availability. Since you already know the months you want to sail, I recommend first taking a look at the New Fall 2018 Itineraries and Sail Dates to see which destination your family will most enjoy! Beginning next week, these exciting destinations for fall, 2018, will be available on Disney Cruise Line's "Find a Cruise" page. After selecting a specific cruise online, you'll also be able to choose a stateroom and see exactly where it's located onboard!

    After choosing a cruise, you'll need to put down a deposit. Once you've paid your deposit, you have the flexibility of making payments toward your cruise as often as you'd like! Some families make payments monthly, some choose to make two larger payments and others like paying it in full all at once. You can call Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 or log into your reservation online to make payments. As a first-time cruiser, your cruise will need to be paid in full 75 days prior to setting sail.

    Please don't hesitate to visit us again any time! We want to help make the planning process as smooth sailing as possible.

    P.S. Thank you for the profile love!!
