    Good evening, I am reaching out due to me wanting to know more information about planning a Disney cruise for my family and I. I have a family of 7. Is there a way I would be able to get a planner to help me accommodate this trip for my family?

    Ahoy there, Rovena! Welcome aboard planDisney! I'm so happy to hear you're looking into setting sail with Disney Cruise Line, and even more excited you chose to sail our way for help! While we're not official vacation planners or travel agents, we are Guests just like you who know the ins and outs of planning Disney vacations! It sounds like the most pressing information you're searching for is how to be sure all seven of your crew can stay, so allow me to take the wheel and steer you into port with a few of my all-time Disney Cruise Line planning tips!

    Now, I noticed you had a planned arrival date of November 10th of this year EAR-marked! In that case, the first thing I would do is use the Find a Cruise Tool to find what cruises are available in November! I took the liberty of doing so for you, and it looks like there are a few cruises departing in mid-November that might work for you! Among them are a 5-Night Baja Cruise from San Diego on the Disney Wonder, a 3-Night Bahamian from Port Canaveral on the Disney Wish, and a 7-Night Eastern Caribbean on the Disney Fantasy! If your dates are more flexible in November, there are others that may be options as well! 

    When it comes to larger groups like yours, the most important thing to note is most non-suite staterooms on the Disney Cruise Line ships can accommodate up to five Guests. With Happy, Sleepy, Grumpy, Doc, Bashful, Dopey, and Sneezy all needing a place to stay, that just won't do, will it? Luckily there are a few ways to make sure your entire crew has a place to rest their heads - but they will vary by ship! If it were my family, I'd take a look at the following options: 

    • If you were hoping to sail on the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy, your best way of accommodating all seven of you would be to request adjoining staterooms. There are more than 500 sets of adjoining staterooms across all categories on this class of ship, so whether you select a pair of Inside staterooms to keep costs down, or are looking to have adjoining Concierge staterooms, your options are pretty open! Booking multiple staterooms is an easy process, as Guests can reserve up to FOUR staterooms during the booking process! Just note that at least one adult must be in each stateroom when booking multiple staterooms.
    • If you are looking to sail on the Disney Magic or Disney Wonder, both ships have two stateroom options that actually sleep seven guests! The Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah and Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah each have multiple bedrooms and sleeping arrangements for seven. Also included are Concierge privileges like the earliest booking windows for Port Adventures and onboard activities (125 days before embarkation), and access to the Concierge Lounge and sundeck areas! It's definitely something to compare to the price of two staterooms - especially if you'd like to have a verandah!
    • If you want to be on the latest ship to join the fleet - the Disney Wish - you have one other option unlike any of the others - the Concierge Wish Tower Suite. This multi-deck stateroom located in the funnel above the upper decks sleeps up to eight guests in the utmost of luxury! 
    There is so much more to explore when it comes to everything that's included on a Disney Cruise Line vacation, Rovena, but I hope that gives you a heading to help you chart a course! Once you find the accommodations that are right for your crew, please sail my way again here at planDisney! Thank you for your question! 

    Fair winds and following seas!
