    We're looking to do a cruise and WDW in 2013. The cruise can be booked now, but WDW can't. Do you recommend booking cruise now, or waiting until WDW can be booked at the same time?

    Hi Tracy!

    I would go ahead and book your cruise now.  The reason for this is that pricing just goes higher as the sailing date gets closer. 

    Booking Disney World will be a bit easier, and it could turn out that you hit a special offer such as free dining.  Although Guests can reserve resorts and park days through the cruise line, I suggest you do not do that.  When I called and spoke to one of the reservation specialists, I was told that this method may not be the most cost effective for Guests.  You see, you would not be able to take advantage of any resort or dining promotions that may be going on in the parks at the time of your trip.  I was also told that there would be no discounted pricing available on resort rooms or park tickets if you book through them.  You can book the Disney parks and resorts leg of your trip online at or by calling (407)939-7675.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
