    We want to start planning our flights to San Diego from El Paso Tx. What is the difference if we make them with Disney or by ourself do you recomend it to make them a day ahead, or same day of departure 

    Ahoy, Graciela!

    Thank you for sending in another excellent question about your Halloween on the High Seas sailing next October!

    Booking your flights through the Disney Cruise Line Air Program has several benefits, especially if you reserve flexible fares. These include selecting your travel date, airline, and flight times. You'll also not have to pay for your flights until your final cruise payment date. And I can't forget to mention that with a flexible fare, you can make a change or modification to your flights without penalty up to 119 days or even as close as 56 days for some itineraries. It's really a personable preference, Graciela, so my advice is to look over the features of the program on the Disney Cruise Line website to decide if it's the best option for your crew. You can give Disney Cruise Line a call at (877) 566-0967 if you have any further questions or would like to add the airfare on to your cruise reservation. 

    Graciela, I'm glad you mentioned flying in the day before you board the Disney Wonder. My family always drives or flies in early so that our day of embarkation is stress-free. It also gives me peace of mind in case there are any unexpected travel delays. If your schedule allows your family to arrive the day before departure, I strongly suggest it! 

    It was a pleasure assisting you again with your plans! We hope to hEAR from you again soon.

    Have a WONDERful day!
