    Wondering when the dates for summer 2018 will be out and what are the different ways that one can save some money while booking ?

    Welcome aboard, Elizabeth! My family and I are anxiously awaiting the release of the summer 2018 Disney Cruise Line itineraries too! We know we'll be booking a cruise for that summer and are so excited to see what new options might be available for us, and which of our favorite itineraries might be back!

    While I don't have an exact date to share with you, I'm guessing and hoping to see the announcement in April. This past April was when Disney Cruise Line announced the summer 2017 itineraries, so I'm hoping this coming April will bring word of the 2018 summer sailings. I'll join you in watching both the Disney Cruise Line website as well as the Disney Parks Blog, which are two of the first places the new itineraries will be announced.

    It's always best to book as soon as possible after new itineraries are released, as that offers the best pricing and availability, because priced do tend to go up later. You may also check out the Special Rates and Offers that are available from time to time, especially since I see that you are a Florida Resident. There are very often special rates for Florida residents! Lucky you! Another tip is to book through a Disney certified travel agent, as some of them offer nice onboard credits as a perk to booking through them. My friend is a travel agent, specializing in Disney trips, and we love that her company offers us a really great onboard credit for up to $200 depending on which itinerary we book. So, you may consider checking out some travel agencies, or asking your own travel agent if there are any special offers like that.

    Have fun planning, Elizabeth!
