    Can you make payments for a Disney Cruise or do you need to pay in full at the time of booking?

    Welcome, Brittany! Thank you for stopping by with your question.

    It looks like you are in the beginning stages of planning your Disney Cruise Line vacation. Yay! You'll have lots to look at and consider as you begin planning, with everything from the cruise ship you'd like to sail on to the port adventures you want to experience. A lot goes into planning your high seas adventure, but it's the best kind of planning. 

    When you book your Disney Cruise Line trip, you'll pay a deposit for each stateroom that you book. Your final payment is typically due anywhere from 75 - 120 days before you sail, however, this policy has been relaxed a bit for sailing through March of 2023. Final payment for those sailings is due 60 days before embarkation day. Between the time you book and your final payment date, you can pay off your cruise however you'd like. 

    There's so much included in the price of a Disney Cruise Line vacation, Brittany, that once you've made your final payment, there are only a few things left to budget for. And you can even pay your cruise off with Disney Gift Cards, which you can sometimes find discounted by about 5% at your local warehouse store or if you use your Red Card at one of the big box stores.

    I hope you have a great time planning your trip, Brittany! If you need us for any other help, know that we're happy to get you in shipshape and ready to sail.
