    How far in advance can you start booking Land and Cruise vacations. What time of the year is the best deals on sailing?

    Welcome aboard, Lurline! Is it exciting to begin thinking about a Disney Cruise Line vacation, and possibly even a Land and Sea adventure with Disney? My family and I love adding a few fun days at the Walt Disney World Resort to the beginning or end (or both!) of our Disney cruises. It makes for even more Disney magic!

    You can book your Land and Sea vacation as soon as the itineraries are released for the cruises. Right now, the itineraries are available through early fall of 2018. These itineraries were just released, and I hope to see the rest of the 2018 itineraries in a few months! So, depending on when you are hoping to sail, just plan to book it as soon as you see those itineraries released. Typically, Disney releases the itineraries about a year and a half in advance, but it can vary. Check out the Plan A Cruise page of Disney Cruise Line's website where you can view the currently offered itineraries. Disney Cruise Line's website is the best place, along with the Disney Parks Blog to keep current on the latest itinerary releases.

    When you're ready to book your cruise, simply chat with the agents at Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532, as they can book not only your cruise but your resort stays, park tickets, and ground transfers as well. Have fun planning, Lurline!
