    With the exciting announcement of Disney Cruise Line coming to New Orleans, when can we expect to see Summer 2020 booking dates release?

    Hi there, Joette!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Like you, I was SO EXCITED to see that Disney Cruise Line will be sailing from New Orleans in 2020!  My husband is from New Orleans, but we never seem to make it back there as often as we would like!  But, now we have a reason…the “Mickey Boat”!!  Now to just figure out some pre-cruise Mardi Gras plans…

    Disney Cruise Line releases schedules and itineraries throughout the year, and while future release dates remain unknown, it typically seems to be about 14-18 months ahead of sailings.  Summer 2019 itineraries were released on March 1, 2018 so my best guesstimate would be to plan for a release anywhere between February and April of 2019.  Keep your eye online at Disney Parks Blog and Disney Cruise Line where you can find the latest information!  Since you can never be sure where Disney Cruise Line go next, if you see an itinerary from New Orleans that fits into your schedule for early 2020, go for it!  You can’t beat the convenience of a departure port that is close to home!  Booking for the recently released schedule opens on October 4, 2019.  

    Please come back with any other questions that you may have as your planning continues!  I can't wait to see what Disney Cruise Line comes up with next!

    Happy Planning!
