    Ahoy there, Jill!  

    Thanks for sailing by planDisney with your thoughtful questions. I’m excited to hear you’re planning a fabulous Disney Cruise Line vacation next fall with your family! With several staterooms needed and a large crew, I can understand wanting to maximize the savings and streamline your planning.

    If you use a travel agent that you trust to book this reservation, they often gift you with onboard credit or other bonuses as a “thank you” for giving them the business. Guests do not pay extra for going through a travel agent, but these specialized services can assist with booking your onboard activities and other arrangements as needed. My family has used a travel agent in the past and received a kind “thank you” gift and personalized support during our planning. We were glad to support a small business and learn some things throughout the process. I prefer to manage my own plans and navigate the Disney Cruise Line planning process myself; you can find the right agent for you who will balance your style with their services. If you have already made your cruise reservations, please know you have 30 days to transfer this to a travel agent if desired and appropriate.  

    You may also manage your plans and finances of this vacation yourself through the handy tools online with Disney Cruise Line, Jill, which is what I do for most of our trips. Keep an eye on the Special Offers page on the Disney Cruise Line website for finding seasonal offers that may apply to your sailing. You can always apply these to an existing reservation if an offer becomes available; please call Disney Cruise Line to seamlessly apply any new offers that may sail your way in the coming year. I’ve found that booking my cruises far in advance, as you’re planning to do a year out, also helps with the overall cost. We also like the flexibility of paying for this special adventure over time; after the initial deposit, you may pay your own way and in your own timing until the official paid-in-full date for your sailing.

    I adore the Disney Magic! As Disney’s original cruise ship, there is so much nostalgia onboard and knowing how many families have made memories onboard together over 25 years makes me feel so inspired.  This ship just received a few fun updates this year which I know you will enjoy exploring! There is plenty of space to store your children's car seats in your stateroom – I recommend your closet, as each stateroom has two and there is enough space to stack them inside with room left for your clothing to hang, too.

    My family had so much fun on our Halloween on the High Seas cruise a few years ago, and I know you will have a wonderful time too! Please let us know if you have other questions as you get into the planning details for this amazing adventure.  

    Wishing you a magical cruise,
