    Hi. I was looking into booking a disney cruise for me and my sons in April 2024 out of New Orleans. Can you give me some more information? Thank you

    Welcome aboard, Kristin!  

    Thanks for sailing by planDisney with a great question for our Disney Cruise Line crew. I’m excited to answer your question because my family has sailed out of the beautiful departure port of New Orleans twice with Disney Cruise Line and I have lots of great information to share with you. Pull up a virtual lounge chair, fill your cup with some chicory coffee, and let’s dig a little deeper!

    I was fortunate to be on the inaugural sailing from New Orleans on the Disney Wonder in early 2020. My family sailed again out of the departure port of New Orleans this year on the Disney Magic, and it was another wonderful experience. There's so much to see in this vibrant city if you arrive early, with many partner hotel or transportation options to the port.

    You can find a cruise that suits your family’s schedule by searching the home page of Disney Cruise Line; it appears that the 2024 sailing season has these departures through March 2024. There are several different itineraries so you can explore the results to see which appeal to you, stateroom availability, and pricing. If you see something you’d like to confirm, you can go through the process to reserve online or call Disney Cruise Line to secure a reservation. Please know that you can pay for your future vacation at your own pace, with just a required deposit.

    There is so much included on your Disney Cruise Line voyage, Kristin! Your sons will have an incredible time exploring a touch of independence in the youth clubs, being mesmerized by the unique entertainment and deck parties, and endless water play onboard.

    Please check out these wonderful resources to help guide you to the best Disney Cruise Line vacation for your family:  

    I understand it can be overwhelming to plan your first adventure together at sea, but we’re here to help! Please know that you can plan as much or as little as you desire for a cruise. So much of the detailed planning is handled by Disney to manage the activities onboard, dining schedules, entertainment, and logistics for every port of call. You just need to select key activities to reserve, pack, and then slip into vacation mode!

    Please sail on by planDisney anytime you have additional questions about your Disney Cruise Line vacation.

    Laissez les bons temps rouler (let the good times roll)!
