    Hello there, Verretta. Welcome to planDisney where my pals and I are here and happy to help with your planning needs!

    It sounds like you are considering a Disney Cruise, and soon! My family has always had a fantastic time sailing with Mickey and the gang. We love that a Disney Cruise is a vacation with enchanting entertainment, beautiful accommodations, delicious dining, and extraordinary sights all rolled into one. You get a Disney vacation, a cruise vacation, and (for many itineraries) a beach vacation as well. To my family, that is a whole lot of value wrapped up in a Disney Cruise. 

    While the Disney Cruise Line does not offer payment plans or any type of grants for cruisers, you may decide to make partial payments in increments between the time you pay your deposit for your reservation and the date that your cruise fare is due.

    If you are looking to save money on an upcoming Disney Cruise, I have a few recommendations for you. First of all, you can check the Special Offers section of the Disney Cruise Line website for limited-time deals. You may find a discounted sailing or special rate that works well for you.

    A great way to get the best pricing on many itineraries is to reserve them early when sailing schedules have just been announced. We should be hearing about summer 2023 itineraries soon, and that may work out well for you if you'd like to cruise with Disney next year. Keep an eye out on the Disney Cruise Line Website or the Disney Parks Blog for the announcement in the near future. 

    Lastly, I recommend sailing during off-peak times if it fits with your schedule. I find that early May, and mid-September have been excellent times for my family to set sail while staying within our vacation budget. 

    I hope that you've found my ideas to be helpful and that I've pointed your compass in the direction of fun and adventure with the Disney Cruise Line. Please sail back to planDisney again if you have more questions for us. We'd sure love to help. 

    Happy Planning!
