    Where do I find the black out dates for 2019 if I want to use my place holder I purchased on my last cruise. We want to go in March next year during spring break but could go cheaper in the summer if spring break is part of the black out period. Thanks.

    Hi there, Mark!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am glad you stopped by while researching for a future Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Great move in booking a future cruise placeholder while on your previous cruise!  I never leave the ship without booking a future cruise so that it automatically becomes a “See Ya Real Soon!” departure which makes the farewell a tad bit easier!

    I checked with Disney Cruise Line to confirm blackout dates for 2019 and the following dates are the only ones currently marked as such.  This is current as of today, and things are always subject to change, but currently the only dates listed as blackouts are:

    Disney Wonder – Departing from San Diego:
    April 12, 2019
    April 19, 2019

    Once you've booked your next sailing and set your Cruise Countdown Clock on the Navigator app, make note of your Online Check-In date.  As a previous cruiser you are automatically enrolled in the Castaway Club and that allows you advanced booking and Online Check-In as follows:

    Platinum - 120 days prior to sailing
    Gold - 105 days prior to sailing
    Silver - 90 days prior to sailing
    First Time Cruisers - 75 days prior to sailing

    So, go ahead and book that Spring Break vacation and don’t forget to book another future cruise before that sailing concludes.  With such a variety of itineraries to choose from your biggest challenge may be deciding which one to explore next! 

    Happy Sailing!
