    I just booked a Merrytime cruise for 2023, the week after thanksgiving and was wondering what they typical weather is. I forgot this could be a high time for hurricanes, and was worried about the dates I booked and if I should change it.

    Welcome to planDisney Geraldine!

    I am so excited that you will be sailing on a Very Merrytime Cruise in 2023. You will get to enjoy plenty of festive activities and holiday fun throughout your voyage. 

    While I certainly cannot predict the weather, you are going to be sailing at the tail end of hurricane season so I think you will be fine. I actually was on the Disney Wish this past fall during a hurricane, and the Captain did an amazing job keeping us in calm waters. We stayed clear of the weather and actually spent the days basking in the sun! The crew on a Disney Cruise puts safety before everything else, so you are in good hands. 

    If you would feel better, you are able to change the date of your cruise. Please note that there may be a difference in the fare, and you will need to see what is available. Most changes can be made online or call a friendly Disney Cruise Line agent who will be happy to assist you. Change fees may apply as you get closer to your cruise, so make any changes sooner than later. 

    Wishing you calm seas and sunny skies during your magical Disney Cruise!
