Whether you are a Disney fan deciding to sail for the first time or a passionate cruiser looking for a bit of Disney magic, when it comes to booking with Disney Cruise Lines it’s a bit of a different story altogether. Other cruise lines give out last-minute discounts. But with Disney Cruise Lines getting the best rates is to book as early as possible.
Disney cruise rates are released in advance. Rates for 2017 itineraries were released as follows:
- From January to April 2017 (Rates were released in October 2015)
- From May to September 2017 (Itineraries went on sale April 2016)
Rates for late 2017 or early 2018 itineraries may not be available yet, but from previous release dates we can assume it will be as follows:
- From October to December 2017(Expected to be released in May or June 2016)
- From January to April 2018 (Expected to be released October 2016)
Who have previously booked with Disney Cruise Lines will say it is better to book as soon the itineraries are released. This is important when popular sailing times like Spring Break, Summer, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are around the corner. Having booked early not only guarantees that there will be great variety to choose from when it comes to stateroom categories but also it will help find better and more affordable rates.
Are there any discounts available while booking with Disney Cruise Lines?
The answer is yes. But they are not as common like cruise lines due to popularity. During less popular sailing times (February, May, September and October) you may find a chance of some Disney Cruise Lines discount. If Disney does offer some discounts they are mostly meant for the Castaway members, military personnel and Florida residents. Heading out from less popular ports such as Miami or Galveston can get you some discounts or if the sailing is for long journeys, it is common for Disney Cruise Lines to provide discounts for these.
The second best way to have a magical sailing with Disney Cruise Lines in affordable range is to work with a Disney Travel Agent. They will help you with the new itineraries when become available, and get those early rates, find staterooms that offer the best value for money, or observe for any last-minute discounts.
