    I booked a placeholder on the UK cruise last year. I have a few questions as I want to use it for the UK sailing in 2023. Does it get booked in dollars rather than pounds? Does it include 2 state rooms? If it includes 2 will we be classed as 1 party?

    Ahoy, and welcome to planDisney, Kelly, we thank you for sailing in!

    Disney Cruise Line placeholders are the best, and it's the way we would keep smiling at the end of cruises knowing that we were returning in the near future as it is so sad disembarking - that "See Ya Real Soon" gets me every time.

    Kelly, in exploring the official Disney Cruise Line pages for U.K. Guests wishing to book their regular sailings, after changing the country filter to the United Kingdom, I see that U.K. Guests are quoted prices for sailings in Pounds Sterling. To use your Disney Cruise Line placeholder, however, you will need to contact Disney Cruise Line to book your sailing(s), as currently, the placeholders for Guests who paid a deposit are not stored in their Disney Cruise Line account. Once the placeholder is converted to a set sailing, it will then appear in My Reservations under My Disney Cruise beneath the Already Booked tab on the main page once you sign in. And if booking a second stateroom during this time, please ensure both staterooms are linked on your file to ensure that you are all seated together for your Disney Cruise Line Dining Rotation.

    Please Note:
    A Placeholder with Disney Cruise Line is valid for up to 2 (two) staterooms for Categories 4 to 11 and must be booked within 24 months. Kelly, kindly refer to the Disney Cruise Line Placeholder Term and Conditions (subject to change) for more details. 

    Kelly, I recommend downloading the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to manage your plans before and during your cruise for such important details as being able to modify your stateroom, pay down your sailing, complete your Online Check-In for necessary documentation and select a Port Arrival Time, and I absolutely love utilizing the Onboard Chat feature to keep tabs on my wanderers.

    I invite you to explore the various Disney Cruise Line Destinations and Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures with some dates in mind in preparation for your consultation with a Disney Cruise Line Cast Member.

    Further, prepare for your call by referring to your Disney Cruise Line ship Deck Plans found under the Our Ships tab to see exactly where your staterooms will be, this way you will see if a particular location is suitable for you. I, for example, love booking mid-ship to forward on the first four ships in the fleet because I like to be closer to the adult spa and pool areas.

    Kelly, I hope this information is helpful, and I wish you the most magical sailing together with your loved ones, thank you kindly for stopping by planDisney!
