    When are placeholder blackout dates for 2025

    Anchors aweigh, Ellen!

    Thanks for bringing your question to us here at planDisney. We are happy to have you onboard!

    It sounds like you brought home one of my favorite Disney Cruise Line souvenirs, an Onboard Booking Offer! There is nothing more exciting than contemplating your next vacation while you are on vacation, in my opinion. So, let's get that answer so you can make your plans.

    Currently, there are only three blockout dates for placeholder reservations listed for 2025:

    • 04/14/2025 - Disney Wish
    • 04/18/2025 - Disney Wish
    • 04/21/2025 - Disney Wish
    I checked with a Disney Cruise Line shoreside Cast Member to confirm and he shared that more dates may be released as more itineraries for 2025 are released. The Summer 2025 itineraries were recently made available for booking and the list did not update so you may be in luck and new dates won't be added. However, in the past, many of the late November and most December sailings on all ships had blockout dates listed. 

    To book a reservation using your placeholder, you need to call Disney Cruise Line and speak with a reservation specialist who can assist you. If you see a cruise you have your heart set on and that date is blocked, the Cast Member will help you find alternatives. I encourage you to make that call as soon as you are ready to book. I like to book early to get the best fares and to select one of my favorite staterooms.

    I hope this information is helpful, Ellen, and you can book that placeholder to wonderful use soon! Let us know if you have other questions or need some tips on selecting staterooms for your next cruise!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
