    I want to start planning far in advance for a cruise with my two granddaughters for late spring 2021. How far in advance can I start the process and for a first cruise what would you suggest.

    Ahoy Kelly!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  What an amazing gift to give your granddaughters!  I love that you are planning ahead to bring them on their very first Disney cruise.  I am excited for all the memories you will make spending time together on this vacation!

    Let those memories begin today!  Disney Cruise Line has many planning tools available for you to get started right now.  It sounds like you know when you want to go, so the next step would be to determine WHERE you want to go!  Ask your princesses to help you plan.  Get them involved in the process by watching the planning videos together and writing down the places and activities that interest you the most.

    Disney Cruise Line offers so many different itineraries for you to explore.  To get an idea of your options, you can look at the itineraries already released for Spring of 2020 to identify which cruises may be available for you in 2021.  Currently, itineraries are released through Fall of 2020.  You can expect the late Spring to Summer 2021 itineraries to be released in early Spring 2020.  Once those are released, you can pick your dream cruise, select your stateroom and start the next phase of planning your getaway!

    While you watch your countdown until your high seas adventure begins, check out all the great onboard activities, youth clubs and entertainment you have to look forward to onboard!

    Be sure to cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any questions you have as you plan this magical vacation for you and your granddaughters.  We would love to help you pixie dust all of the fun you will share together!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
