    My finacé and I are wanting to go on a Disney Cruise in late January of 2024 for our honeymoon, and want to know how soon can I book? What percentage of the cost do I have to pay at the time of booking? I am a Castaway Club member by the way.

    Ahoy Lauren!

    Hi there and welcome to planDisney. First off, congratulations on your engagement and your plans to honeymoon with Disney Cruise Line. Mickey and Minnie will be thrilled to have newlyweds on the high seas with them! Make sure that they note your special occasion on your reservation because the crew will want to sprinkle you with lots of pixie dust on your voyage.

    You are definitely a long range planner, but it's worth it to get the honeymoon of your DREAMs! And while 2024 sailings are currently way off in the distance, they will be on the horizon before we know it. With the addition of the Disney Wish in summer 2022, Disney Cruise Line will have 5 ships in the fleet to choose from. Boy, you will have plenty of amazing voyages to choose from!

    If Disney Cruise Line stays on the same course as far as announcing new itineraries and opening them for booking, I project that cruises in early 2024 calendar year will be available in Fall 2022. This is mere speculation on my part, but traditionally announcements are made around 15 to 18 months in advance. 

    The initial deposit does vary depending on which itinerary you have selected, but typically, it is 20% of the cruise fare and is due within 24 hours of booking your specific sailing. Of course, deposit requirements are always subject to change, so when you make that MAGICal honeymoon reservation, you will be told the exact deposit due when you check out. 

    I’m going to mention one more resource that may be useful to you in planning your honeymoon cruise: Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons. They will be more than happy to help customize the cruise package of your dreams. Guests can request a Digital Brochure to read all about the various options for honeymoon bliss, learn plenty of planning tips for cruise honeymoons, and even find a way to create a Disney Honeymoon Registry!

    Lauren, pop back by planDisney anytime. It’s our pleasure to assist you with your cruise planning and also help crystallize your special moments. WISHing you all the happiness as you embark on married life together and your honeymoon cruise!

    SEA ya real soon!
