    What time of day does booking a cruise online open, like booking a Disney World online reservation begins at 7am eastern time? Does this apply to booking a cruise?

    Hi there, Karen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question about planning a Disney Cruise Line vacation!  You cannot go wrong with a Disney Cruise Line vacation – with so many incredible itineraries to choose from, there is an adventure at sea for everyone!

    As you probably heard, Disney Cruise Line just announced the next set of sail dates which extends the schedule out through early 2020.  First time Disney Cruise Line guests can begin booking those newly released sailings on October 4, 2018 beginning at 8:00AM EST.  Reservations can be made online or by calling Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 or contacting your travel agent to make the arrangements for you.  “Opening Day” is usually pretty popular, so be prepared for some longer than usual wait times if you plan on making your reservation by phone!

    One of the best things about sailing with Captain Mickey is that SO MUCH is included with your reservation!  In addition to your stateroom, you also get food, sodas, non-stop entertainment and activities, Youth Clubs and more!  There is something for everyone and every age onboard and my family loves that we can visit so many places while onboard, but still have a “home base” to come back to each night!  It sure beats packing up your suitcase and moving it from island to island or city to city each day!

    Once you’ve got your upcoming Disney Cruise booked, please come back with any additional questions you may have!

    Happy Planning!
