    Our family of 6 adults & 3 kids (4, 6, & 7), desperately want to go on a disney cruise but have not yet because of the price. I want to take the kids on at least one disney cruise while my parents can still go and the kids are young. Any advice?

    Hello Scott!

    I really appreciate you stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this question. Your question touched my heart because my most treasured voyages have been the ones when we sailed with my parents along. I want to help you as best I can with ideas on how to make this multi-generational Disney Cruise set sail!

    One of the ways to get the best price and availability for your future Disney Cruise is to book as early as possible. The 2018 summer itineraries haven't been announced yet, so I would keep on the lookout by visiting the Disney Parks Blog or the Disney Cruise Line's website for those dates to be released! Another way to possibly save money is to view all the Special Rates and Offers. Here, Disney Cruise Line will share any current promotions that are being offered. Something else that might help with the cost of your future Disney Cruise is to explore the different stateroom categories. There are four main categories of staterooms aboard each ship. I suggest taking a peek at each category to see if one better suits your family's budget over another. You'll more than likely look into booking two adjoining staterooms so everyone will be close to each other!

    Scott, I hope one or more of these suggestions helped give you ideas on planning your future Disney Cruise with your children and parents. Oh, one more thing! If your sail dates are flexible, booking a cruise for September, October, January or February tends to be less expensive times to sail.
