    Nicholas from Vic Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We are planning for the Honolulu to Sydney repositioning cruise to be our first Disney cruise and are wondering what time (and timezone) on the 6th should we expect reservations to be available? We're from Australia so want to be awake

    Ahoy there, Nicholas! Welcome aboard planDisney! 

    Your first Disney Cruise Line vacation! Wow! How exciting for you and your crew! If you're anything like my family, you'll be starting an incredible tradition of sailing aboard the Disney Cruise Line fleet once you get your first taste of everything that is included in a Disney Cruise Line vacation! Plus, the Disney Wonder is the ship making these voyages, and let me tell you - she's my favorite ship in the fleet! 

    Now, I sailed on over to confirm with a crew member that these itineraries will be released at 8 a.m. Eastern, which based on Victoria's observance of Australian Eastern Daylight Time, would mean 11 p.m. in your local time zone! OH, and something very important to note: the Hawaiian and South Pacific itineraries' release date has changed to the following schedule. 

    • October 10, 2022: Platinum Castaway Club Members & Golden Oak Members
    • October 11, 2022: Gold Castaway Club Members
    • October 12, 2022: Silver Castaway Club Members, eligible Disney Vacation Club Members and Adventure Insiders
    • October 13, 2022: All Guests
    Since this is your first cruise, I'd be setting an alarm to be at my computer at around 10:45 p.m. AEDT on October 13 so you're ready to pounce on the 13-night South Pacific cruise from Honolulu to Sydney itinerary like Tigger! 

    I can't wait for you to experience everything for the first time with your crew, Nicholas! Here's a bit of faith, trust, and pixie dust that you'll have smooth sailing when booking! Thank you so much for your question, and if you have any others as you continue planning, please drop me another line here at planDisney! 

    Fair winds and following seas!
