Best Time to go on a Disney Cruise   

We know you are excited about taking your Disney Cruise. The relaxation, onboard activities, entertainment, exciting onshore adventures that await you are beckoning you to come aboard and sail away to paradise. We have already discussed the benefits of a Disney Cruise and what type of cruise itinerary would best suit you. In this issue we will discuss the best time to cruise.

For some travelers price is a major factor when deciding to take a Disney vacation. Did you know though that most people do still travel during peak travel times because they realize the value they are receiving for their dollars. Anytime you choose to cruise is a great time. But here are some tips that will help you make the most of your dollars!

For Disney Cruises, Early booking is the "key" to insuring ones trip is as memorable and economical as can be. When dates become available and itineraries have been released (usually 18 mo. in advance), the availability on the ship is plenty and prices are at their lowest. As the ship begins to fill up and the dates draw nearer, you will find yourself paying more for the same cabin as your neighbor who knew to book ahead. It is always highly recommended to book your Disney Cruise 12-18 months in advance for the best possible savings and take advantage of the Early Booking Savings (EBS).

"Hey, tell me what time of year I will get the best deal!" 
Ok, we will start at the beginning of the year. January and the beginning of February are excellent times to take a Disney Cruise. This is considered value season and rates will be lower. Mid Feb.-April you will find yourself among those that are taking their Spring Break to the sunny, warm tropical climate of the Caribbean, escaping the frigid cold winters up north and find that the rates are at their highest. If traveling during this time period is your first choice, then take advantage of the Early Booking Savings so you are not throwing your money out to sea.

During May, you can find some deals before the summer vacationers begin taking their vacations. June-Aug. will be your regular season with moderate rates lower than peak season.

September as people are gearing up for a new school year and getting a jump start on their Holiday planning is a great time to catch a great wave of savings. Pricing on Disney Cruises will be at their lowest during this time of year. You still though will want to add up your savings by combining the low fares with the EBS.

October, November,December (excluding Thanksgiving & Christmas) you will also FALL in love with the GREAT fall savings of value season. The weather at this time of year is pleasant and a great time to cruise the Bahamas or take your Caribbean cruise.
"Wait a second, isn't this hurricane season?" Yes, hurricane season officially begins on June 1 and ends Nov. 30. During Aug. & Sept. that is when peak activity generally occurs. But Disney has you covered. After 8 years of sailing, and a leader in serving families, the knowledgeable professional, seasoned Captains know how to steer you out of harms way should any threatening weather approach. So why worry, you will have the time of your life and save LOTS.
Guests over the years have come back raving about the "mystery" itineraries they have sailed when the Captain has had to redirect the ship. If you are not as daring as some and would prefer not to sail on a mystery cruise, no worries, with the addition of Trip protection/cancellation insurance added onto your cruise package, you are covered! You will be able to reschedule your cruise or receive a refund of your fare if inclement weather threatened your cruise itinerary.

So as you can see, anytime of the year is a Great time to cruise. It is just a matter of personal preference depending on your vacation schedule and budget
