    I want to plan a land and sea vacation for summer of 2022. Would like to go on your new ship, Wish. When is the best time to begin planning? There will be four of us, 3 adults and an eight year old girl.

    Ahoy Claudia!

    Thanks for bouncing over to planDisney! It's "Tigger-iffic" to hEAR you are wanting to plan a land and sea adventure with Captain Mickey. Better yet, you hope to set sail on the newest ship in the Disney fleet, the Disney Wish! You can take a sneak peek at the ship details here to get a sense of all the amazing new spaces and concepts Disney Cruise Line has.

    Now is actually the prime time to begin making plans for sailing on the Disney Wish because the advance booking window for reservations opens to the general public on May 27, 2021. If you have cruised with Disney Cruise Line before, then you would have earlier access to make reservations, depending on your Castaway Club status.

    The current advance booking timeline for the Disney Wish sailings is as follows and begins at 8:00 A.M. EST on each day:

    -May 17th for Platinum Castaway Club Members with 25 or More Sailings by phone only at 1 (800) 388-4513;

    -May 18th for Platinum Castaway Club Members with 20 or More Sailings by phone only at 1(800) 388-4513;

    -May 19th for Platinum Castaway Club Members with 15 or More Sailings by phone only at 1(800) 388-4513;

    -May 20th for All Platinum Castaway Club Members by signing in to your account to book online;

    -May 24th for Gold Castaway Club Members by signing in to your account to book online;

    -May 25th for Disney Vacation Club Members and Adventure Insiders. Disney Vacation Club Members should call Member Services at 1(800) 800-9800 to book with Reservation Points. To make a cash-only booking, call 1(866) 325-6348 or contact your travel agent; and Adventure Insiders should call 1(888) 272-0644; 

    -May 26th for Silver Castaway Club Members by signing in to your account to book online; and 

    -May 27th for the General Public by booking online.  

    Disney Cruise Line is strongly recommending that Guests book either through a travel agent or online beginning May 20th due to anticipated high call volume.

    If you have particular dates that work best for you, then I suggest that you make your Disney Wish reservations as soon as possible for two reasons. One, the Disney Wish is going to be THE hot ticket for 2022 and Guests will be booking like crazy for this new ship in the Disney fleet. Two, the general rule is that the farther out you can make your reservation, the better the pricing. 

    Disney Cruise Line has Vacation Planning Specialists who can help you with planning a land and sea adventure. The components of the Walt Disney World vacation may have to be planned at a later date than the cruise, but I would move forward with your cruise plans as soon as you are able. I’m certain that as itineraries fill up, options regarding dates and stateroom categories would be more limited. 

    So "ta-ta for now"...because you need to get those plans made! Stop by our "Thotful Spot" anytime if you have more questions about the Disney Wish, Walt Disney World, or vacation planning!

    SEA ya real soon!
