    We put a placeholder for a future trip in February of 2020 right before COVID shut everything down. Will the placeholder still expire in February 2022 or will there be an extension?

    Hi Cory!

    “Welcome aboard!” So glad you joined us here at planDisney. Sounds like you are more than ready to enjoy all that's included on a Disney cruise with Captain Mickey. 

    Wise choice making an Onboard Booking (also known as a placeholder) for a future cruise while on your last voyage! A placeholder has some great perks, so I'm so happy you were able to take advantage of it. Just sorry it has been challenging being able to put it to good use.

    As you are aware, the onboard booking ordinarily allows you up to 24 months from the date the placeholder was booked to set sail. But after the year we’ve had, Captain Mickey has relaxed the rules to give Guests the chance to use their placeholders. Instead of yours expiring in February 2022 as originally slated, most placeholders have been extended out through September 2022. Be aware that the Disney Wish has block out dates, so you may or may not be able to reserve the Disney Wish due to its overall popularity. My advice: call Disney Cruise Line to discuss your placeholder and what extension would be available on your specific reservation.

    Now the fun part: deciding on an itinerary that suits you and your family! Having many more months in 2022 to work with hopefully opens up some more FANTAStic possibilities for you, like maybe a seasonal cruise like Halloween on the High Seas or a specialty voyage featuring a Marvel Day at Sea or Star Wars Day at Sea. WISHing you the best of luck as you select a MAGICal voyage and embark on a WONDERful cruise.

    Keep Disney DREAMing!
