    Hegberto from VA Asked

    I would like some help in planning a group cruise with Disney. I have group size of 13 couples with children.

    Welcome aboard, Hegberto!

    I applaud your decision to cruise with Captain Mickey. But it’s a positively brilliant idea when you plan on sharing the adventure with friends and family. It turns into one FANTAStic experience getting to hang out with your friends, and all the children have friends they will already know on the cruise!

    Here’s your starting point for making group reservations with Disney Cruise Line. There isn’t a separate contact line for groups, so you can either call a Disney Cruise Line Vacation Planning Specialist or a Travel Agent to make reservations for multiple staterooms for 13 couples and their kids. Or each couple would need to be in charge of their own reservations using these same contacts. 

    The key point is to make sure that the person coordinating all these reservations links all your individual stateroom reservations together. The reason? So you all will be seated close together during your rotation dining! With a group your size, one table will not work, but they can seat you all in the same area with all the tables grouped together. Hey, I foresee a kids’ table in your future!

    For a large group traveling together, I would especially recommend the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Not only will it provide showtimes, dinner menus, daily activities and their times and locations, it also works WONDERs in keeping all of you connected throughout the day. The chat feature will let you all relay any activities you all might want to attend together and also proves very useful in tracking the kiddos while they are in the Youth Clubs.

    Last but certainly not least, stateroom locations may be important to your crew. Depending on how everyone gets along, you may want to select connecting staterooms so you can leave the door open between rooms to feel more connected. Using the Deck Plans and choosing your ship in the upper left-hand corner, you can go ahead and scope out which staterooms are connected.

    I hope this has you even more enthusiastic about a 2022 voyage. Now go get started on those reservations, and have a MAGICal time!

    Happy Sailing!
