    I'm trying to plan a Orlando Disney resort first and then end it with a cruise on the Wish for my son birthday (toddler). Want to know when the Wish comes online for booking and how do I plan the resort and cruise together?

    Hi Ahmad!

    Welcome to planDisney! A land and sea adventure sounds like a real treat. Not only will you be sailing on the Disney Wish, but you'll also be enjoying a "whole new world" at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. I call that the perfect combination of theme park fun and tropical destinations in one! And with a birthday at sea for your toddler, it’s going to be a real SAILabration!

    I’d say you will need to first go ahead and make your Disney Wish reservation because that is the most time-sensitive element of your vacation. Guests who have not previously sailed with Captain Mickey before may book starting May 27th at 8:00 A.M. on the Disney Cruise Line website or via a Travel Agent. So your question is timed perfectly-you can make a reservation tomorrow! I’d suggest going ahead and pinpointing which itineraries are most appealing and having a first, second and third choice. 

    You have said that you’d like to do the Walt Disney World vacation first and then the cruise second. Great choice! So once your voyage is all lined up, you can make arrangements for your Walt Disney World vacation either online or with a Cast Member by phone. Ordinarily, I would suggest contacting a Disney Cruise Line Vacation Planning Specialist to reserve this land and sea vacation, but I’ve been informed that the Disney Wish reservations are only being handled online. So in this instance, it’s better to simply separate out the planning for both components of your epic vacation.

    If you need more suggestions about the Disney Wish, Walt Disney World, or ways to add pizzazz to a birthday sailing, cruise back to planDisney...we can make all the plans together! 

    SEA ya real soon!
