    I am planning a cruise with my best friend and some of her family and potentially some of mine for Halloween on the High Seas in 2023/24! How do we maximize our trip and get the best price for our group?

    Ahoy there, Ayanna!

    Welcome aboard planDisney, where helping Guests make their Disney vacation plans is our DREAM job. While you are a bit early to get information for Disney cruises in late 2023, I must say that I like your style! One of my favorite tidbits of advice is to book your Disney Cruise Line vacations early. Booking an itinerary as far out as possible is typically the best way to save money. 

    Currently, Disney Cruise Line itineraries are available for booking through May 2023. Traditionally, Captain Mickey has announced June-December itineraries in the early Spring. So since you have your eyes on a Halloween on the High Seas voyage in October 2023, check back on the Disney Cruise Line website starting in the spring of 2022 for the newest batch of cruise information to be released. 

    An early-bird booking for a voyage far out on the horizon is also a surefire way to ensure that you will be able to select the stateroom of your dreams! Don’t feel like everyone has to book the same category of staterooms either; there’s a variety of offerings from Inside, Oceanview and Verandah. Also, please check the Special Offers link because one of those might be an additional source of savings.

    Here’s a planDisney tip: stockpile Disney gift cards in the months leading up to a cruise and use those for payments and onboard spending. Did you know you can combine those gift cards onto one card? Once you create an account on the Disney Gift Card website, the cards can all be consolidated onto a single card (up to $ 1000). 

    Please sail back to planDisney if you have any additional questions as you chart a course for this epic friends and family voyage! 

    SEA ya real soon!
