    We hope to travel as a group of 10 (parents, adult children, and adult grandchildren). Ideally we would like to make just one reservation, but are multiple family members able to make payments towards the trip? Are there any payment restrictions?

    Ahoy Heather,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your question. What a wonderful vacation you are planning - a multigenerational sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line!

    I called Disney Cruise Line and spoke with a wonderful Cast Member who let me know that yes, you will be able to have multiple people make payments toward this trip. When you make a reservation for a larger group such as yours, you will have separate reservation numbers for each stateroom within your group. Even if you begin by booking the staterooms together, they will produce a separate reservation number for each stateroom. You can book a group of up to four staterooms online. For five or more staterooms, you do need to call Disney Cruise Line. You can also call Disney Cruise Line to book fewer than four staterooms if you prefer.

    You will need to attach an e-mail address to each stateroom, and each stateroom will have its own reservation number. After this, you can add the other reservation numbers for the other staterooms to your account as well. Others whose e-mails are attached to the other staterooms that you have booked can do the same. This will allow you all to access each reservation. Everyone can then make payments toward any of the staterooms to which they have access.

    I know that this may seem complicated, Heather. I have to say that I had a great experience talking with the Cast Member who helped me with this question today. The bottom line is that yes, you can have multiple people make payments toward everyone in the group's reservation. Do feel free to call Disney Cruise Line with more specific questions about your specific scenario if you need to do so!

    I have to say that a cruise with a large group is such a great idea due to the various activities available. Even if all ten of you are not interested in the same activities all of the time, there is bound to be something for everyone. It sounds like you are traveling with only adults, so do be sure to check out the adults-only areas aboard the Disney ship, including making a reservation for one of the adults-only dining options. I also find that if you decide to split up as a group throughout the day for various activities, coming back together for your rotational dining each night is a great way to reconnect and share tales of the day's adventures!

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Heather. Please feel free to sail on back to planDisney with any further questions as you plan your magical journey!
