    How do I redeem my placeholder reservation discount and deposit?

    Welcome to planDisney Norie!

    Each time I am on a Disney Cruise, I make sure to get a Placeholder for a future vacation. It makes it much easier getting of the ship knowing I am really close to booking my next cruise adventure! Remember to use your Placeholder within 24 months. If you do not, the deposit will be refunded to its original form of payment. 

    To convert your Placeholder into a magical cruise, call a Disney Cruise Line agent at 800-951-3532. Have your Placeholder number handy, as well as your desired travel dates, travel party, and a credit card to cover the additional deposit. (Please note blockout dates of certain cruises!) Hold times have been long with the release of the Summer 2023 itineraries, so please be patient. I usually have better luck calling late afternoon but try first thing in the morning to try to be in the first wave of guests.

    Once you have booked your cruise, it is time to start dreaming of your sailing! Browse the different Port Adventures and all the dining options on the ships. My first stop each cruise is at Cabanas with its delicious buffet. What a way to start a vacation! 

    As your cruise gets closer, read through Know Before You Go for all the latest updates on cruising, checklists, and just a few reminders so your entire cruise is "smooth sailing!"

    Captain Mickey and the crew are looking forward to seeing you onboard real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
