    Want to go on our first cruise, Disney Cruise, but I have no idea where to start as far as planning??? Who can we contact to start budget estimates? Can we make a deposit and then make payments like one can for Disney World? please help!! 2015 is our eta.

    Ahoy Kitzze!
    I'm so excited to hear you're planning your first cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line! With Broadway-style entertainment, magical kids' areas, delightful dining experiences and SO much more, you're about to have the vacation of a lifetime! With all four ships sailing from Florida ports in early 2015, there are lots of great itineraries to choose from. Every cruise departing from January to April includes a stop at Castaway Cay, a tropical island paradise created just for Disney Cruise Line guests!
    To get started, a visit to the DCL website will show you sail dates and itineraries and help you decide which magical voyage is right for your family. Rates start at $450 per person for a 3-Night Bahamian cruise to $1225 per person for a 7-Night Eastern Caribbean (for inside stateroom, based on double occupancy), so there are cruises to fit every budget!
    When you're ready to book, you can call Disney Cruise Line at (888)325-2500, or contact your travel agent. At that time, you'll get a "due date" for a deposit, which will be 20 percent of the cruise fare. Final payment for a cruise package must be made between 75 and 150 days prior to departure, depending on the itinerary and category you choose. A good travel agent should be able to schedule a payment plan that works for you and your budget!
    Have fun with your planning, and please come back and visit the Moms Panel site if you have more questions along the way - we're happy to help!
