    I would like to take my two children on a disney cruise this year but I am not sure when is the best time. Would you recommend a couple of months that might be better price wise and weather wise? Thank you in advance for your help. :)

    Hi Jenny!

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  One of the best parts of my job as one of the Cruise Moms is spreading pixie dust to Guests like you!  In my opinion, there is no other cruise line better for families than Disney because of the magical atmosphere on all their ships.

    You have a great question about when to take a Disney Cruise.  Historically, September, October, November (except Thanksgiving week) and January are the least expensive months to cruise.  The fall months usually have the lower fares due to hurricane season, but you will find wonderful weather conditions during these months.  I have cruised several times during the hurricane season and have always experienced smooth sailing.  Even if there are hurricanes or disturbances that may cause a threat, the Captain will redirect the ship's course so you can still enjoy your time at sea! 

    As you plan you magical voyage, make sure to visit the Planning Center on to request your free Cruise-Planning DVD.  There are also many fantastic resources on the website including more cruise videos for your enjoyment.  Have a look, and let me know any other questions you may have about planning your cruise vacation!

    Happy Planning!
