    I’m looking for a cruise Aug 2025 for my extended family. 4 rooms and one suite. Preferably from New York. Too early to plan ?

    Ahoy and 'Ohana, Stuart! I am thrilled you are already dreaming of an adventure at sea next summer with Captains Mickey and Minnie! Disney Cruise Line vacations are the absolute best, especially with extended family. 

    The short answer to your question is it is never too soon to start planning for a Disney Cruise Line vacation, it just may be too early to reserve your staterooms. Like you, I am anxiously awaiting the announcement of summer 2025 itineraries. The Cast Members I spoke with shared we only have to wait a few more months. They did not have any more specific information available yet. 

    With multiple staterooms and a suite, I know you want to book as soon as possible. In looking at the release of spring 2025 dates, their upcoming arrival was announced on the official Disney Cruise Line Facebook page on October 26 and on Disney Parks Blog the next day. Booking for these opened on November 6, so there was a good week to take a peek before they were available to reserve.  

    My advice: follow the official Disney Cruise Line page on Facebook and the Disney Parks Blog. You can also go to Google Alerts and set up a "Disney Cruise Summer 2025" alert and have Google notify you when news or posts appear online with these terms. And you may want to consider reaching out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. A good travel agent specializing in Disney vacations is paying attention and should let you know when new itineraries are being released, as well as the date you would be eligible to book based on your Castaway Club level. 

    In the meantime, just keep swimming! It won't be long before you open the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App and see the countdown clock rolling.

    If you have any other questions as you continue to plan for this magical voyage, please come back to planDisney. We are here for you!
