    I’d like to book for 2025 sailing for DCL would it be a good idea to book a 2024 sailing and than move that booking to 2025 sailing as soon as they release sailings for that year?

    Ahoy there, Kelly,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! How exciting to have a Disney Cruise Line vacation on the horizon! 

    I was just thinking about planning a Disney Cruise for 2025 myself so I did a little research that I’m happy to share with you. Disney Cruise line itineraries are usually announced about 15 months in advance so, the cruises we are hoping for will probably be released sometime at the end of this year. We will need to keep an eye on the Disney Cruise Line website and the Disney Parks Blog, since that is where the announcements are made first. 

    There is no real benefit to booking a cruise now with the intention of rebooking for a future cruise. Now, if we were on a Disney cruise today, I would recommend that we book what is called a Disney Cruise Line Onboard-Only Offer, or “placeholder reservation,” which offers a 10% discount off prevailing rates for a future sailing. We could use the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to book a placeholder reservation while on board. But alas, we are not on a Disney Cruise so we will keep that in mind during our next cruise!

    So, Kelly, let’s watch out for those dates to be released and any Special Offers that might be announced and I hope to see you sailing away in 2025! If you have any other questions about your future Disney Cruise vacation, please cruise back over and let us know. My planDisney Disney Cruise Line specialist pals Tracie and Adrianna know all the best tips!

    Wishing you smooth sailing,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
