    Hi my family wants to go on a Disney cruise but we don't know the budget to be specific we would like the Disney Dream and we have a disability person any advice?

    Ahoy, David - 

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It can be challenging to start off your search for a family vacation -- planning, budgeting and booking a trip will take several logical steps. You're in luck, since you can do all the initial research online 24 hours a day. The Disney Cruise Line website allows you to play around with dates, destinations and even stateroom types to help you plan for your vacation. Start off with this link on Finding a Cruise and customize the choices to fit your family's needs:

          Travel Party -- choose the number of guests in your family. This is where you can check the box to choose an 'Accessible Room' 
          Travel Dates -- choose when you'd like to cruise and how many nights
          Ships -- choose the box next to Disney Dream

    You should see the estimated costs on the same screen, as you choose the different filters. You'll also see the availability for the 4 different types of staterooms: Inside, Oceanview, Verandah or Concierge. If you need to change dates or any other filter - then you can play around with the site some more. This should get you started and give you an idea of costs to budget for.

    Your cruise cost is all-inclusive and includes your stateroom, meals & non-alcoholic drinks, youth club access and a whole bunch of onboard activities (shows come free!). There are additional costs that you'll need to think of: Port Adventures & excursions, Spa, Adult Dining at Palo or Remy, Alcoholic drinks, Arcade, Beverage Tastings, Gratuities to name the most common ones. You can also request some free cruise planning tools here.

    Hope this helps, David!
