    I am wondering about when I can start to plan for an April 2026 cruise for 10 people

    Ahoy there, Linda!

    Welcome to planDisney! You came to the right place because we agree it is never too early to plan a Disney Cruise Line vacation!

    While we still haven't seen all the itineraries for 2025 yet, I do have some tips for you. Itineraries are usually released 15-18 months in advance. So, depending on when you would like to cruise, you can do the math and determine when to begin looking for your perfect cruise. Since there will be more ships to choose from, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we see cruises being released sooner rather than later. Of course, this is just my eager wishful thinking! No matter when the dates are released, they are typically announced on the Disney Parks Blog and the Disney Cruise Line Instagram account first. So, be sure you are following both of these great sources of information. You can also let your favorite Disney Authorized Vacation Planner of your interest and they can keep an eye out for you, too.  

    I encourage you to explore the Disney Cruise Line website to get an idea of which ship or itinerary you might be interested in, keeping in mind that itineraries may change from season to season. You can get an idea of cruise fares, too. Just peruse itineraries under the Plan a Cruise tab. You can book up to four staterooms together online, so you could price out a cruise for 10 Guests by following the planning prompts. And don't worry, you won't have to pay for anything––you are just porthole shopping!

    I hope this information helps, Linda. Please let us know if you have other questions as you plan; we love to assist our fellow Guests!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
