    what time of the day does the online Disney Cruise line booking window open for new released dates?

    Hi Tommie!

    I am so excited to hEAR you will be catching the current for an upcoming sailing and making your plans to book reservations as soon as dates for those new itineraries allow! You are in for a fabulous adventure with Captain Mickey at the helm. 

    At the stroke of midnight (EST) on the day your advance booking window opens, you will be able to add activities and reservations to your cruise itinerary. Login to "My Reservations" on the Disney Cruise Line website, and under the "My Plans" section, you can add activities there. 

    Calculate up the number of days in advance by your Castaway Club level: 75 days for first time cruisers; 90 days for Silver level Guests who have sailed 1-5 cruises; 105 days for Gold level in Castaway Club (completed 5th cruise); and 120 days for Platinum Guests (completed 10 cruises). While you may be waiting a while for those Summer 2021 booking windows to arrive, be sure to calendar the date and time according to your Castaway Club level.

    Be strategic about which days you choose for reservations like spa treatments at Senses Spa and Salon. For instance, I like to book those on at sea days, but there are some specials offered on port days that you also can snag while onboard. And of course, I always want at least one meal in either Palo (on all four ships) and Remy (on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy), the adult exclusive restaurants onboard. 

    And my final suggestion is to never give up if you aren't able to book something you really want. Guests change their plans daily, so keep checking on the Disney Cruise Line website or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to see if activities have opened up before you set sail. 

    Tommie, please stop back by the Disney Parks Moms Panel anytime! We always love to help Guests navigate the cruise planning waters! 

    Bon Voyage!
