    Does booking a cruise when it first opens up save a lot? We are looking at the Panama Canal cruise concierge level. There have been some concierge avail 6mos away & the next year one is not avail/opened up yet. Is the diff in price worth the wait?

    Hi Brent!

    So thrilled for you that you plan on sailing to the Panama Canal AND intend to travel in style at the concierge level! The Disney Wonder is my absolute favorite ship in the fleet, and I can SEA why you are excited about this amazing itinerary.

    Booking your Disney Cruise Line vacation as far out as possible is typically the best way to both save money AND get the best overall stateroom selection. My hunch is that if you can patiently wait until 2021 to sail, the savings will be more significant instead of choosing the same sailing six months from now

    Traditionally, Disney Cruise Line releases its new itineraries 15 to 18 months in advance, so keep a weather eye for announcements. Another great spot to stay tuned to all the Disney developments is the Disney Parks Blog. I find myself checking both websites frequently these days and daydreaming about my next adventure at sea!

    An early-bird booking for a voyage far out on the horizon is also a surefire way to ensure that you will be able to select the concierge level stateroom of your dreams! Concierge Guests enjoy many wonderful perks like priority check-in and boarding, exclusive onboard events, and that awe-inspiring Concierge Lounge that will make you feel like VIP’s of Captain Mickey himself! 

    Get ready to be pampered on your WONDERful voyage. Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail!

    Happy Sailing!
