    What is the deposit for a Disney Cruise for April 2022?

    Welcome to planDisney, Christine!

    “Heigh ho heigh ho”...it’s off to sailing in 2022 you go! OK, so I’m not one of the Seven Dwarfs, but you get the idea: it’s so much fun to “whistle while you work” and make those future plans for a nautical vacation. Then again, it hardly feels like “work” when you are planning an adventure at sea with Captain Mickey!

    Since you have your sights set on an April 2022 voyage, here’s what you need to know to lock in those plans. The Magic Mirror says that all that is required to secure a Disney Cruise Line reservation is that initial deposit, which varies depending on which itinerary you have selected. Typically, the deposit for a Disney cruise is 20% of the cruise fare and is due within 24 hours of booking your specific sailing. I’m not certain which ship or itinerary you are planning on, but this is a good rule of thumb on the amount due. Of course, deposit requirements are always subject to change, so check your reservation as it will provide you the deposit amount due when you check out. 

    Once you have booked a vacation and made your deposit, then you are in the driver’s seat when it comes to making the remaining payments over time or if you prefer one lump sum for that final payment. So long as you have your cruise paid off by the Payment in Full date, you’re good to go! And with Captain Mickey temporarily extending the deadlines for final payments to 60 days prior to sailing, that gives Guests even more flexibility with their Disney dollars. 

    Speaking of money, here’s a planDisney tip: buy Disney gift cards over time and apply them to payment for your cruise. It’s not only a great way to spread out the cost of a cruise, it makes the perfect gift idea to give to family and friends for special occasions. 

    If you have a need to “mine” for more planning information, look no further than planDisney! When it comes to making vacation plans, we always love to “dig, dig, dig” up those answers for Guests. Christine, “I’m wishing” a magical cruise for you and your family!
