    Hello from VA! I have 2 daughters 4 and 4 months. We are booking a cruise for August (DREAM). Since this is our first time we are only allowed to begin booking 75 days out. Do things fill up before that? I don't want to miss out, BBB especially!

    Hi there, Sarah-Jane!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your FIRST Disney Cruise Line vacation – how exciting!  I know you are looking forward to this and all the memories you will make onboard with your sweet family!  

    As you prepare for booking, please be aware that the minimum age for the youngest cruisers is six months old.  I am assuming that your youngest will be at least six months old by the time your sailing arrives and you be thrilled with how easy and convenient Disney Cruise Line makes traveling with the littlest Mouseketeers!  From pack and plays and diaper pails in your stateroom to a wonderful group of counselors in the “it’s a small world” nursery!, even the smallest Guests will feel special!

    Yes, as a first time cruiser, your Online Check-In and advanced booking window will open 75 days prior to your sailing!  There is always a possibility that some Port Adventure excursions or onboard activities that you are interested in may not be available, but don’t get discouraged!!  Plans always change, so check back for an opening or you can always check once onboard for availability.  From my experience, there have been times where I have not booked a Pirates League reservation for my boys prior to sailing and was able to get one once onboard!  As long as you allow for a bit of flexibility, I am sure Cast Members will do what they can to make everyone’s DREAM a reality!

    I wish you a wonderful and magical adventure with Captain Mickey with many memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
