How To Get the Best Price on a Disney Cruise
April 25, 2024

Disney Cruises are one of the most popular vacations for families, groups and couples, allowing people to see multiple destinations in one fabulous Disney vacation. If you’re wondering how to get the best price on a Disney Cruise, you aren’t alone.

We’ve gathered our best tips to make sure you get the best deal for your 1st or 50th Disney Cruise.

Booking Disney Cruises in Advance = Savings

Imagine being able to see multiple beach destinations, like Belize or Grand Cayman, in one trip. Or, being able to explore both Europe without taking a train or flight between the two cities.

Now, add in some Disney magic, delicious dining every night, world-class Disney entertainment and activities for the whole family. You just imagined some of the most popular reasons to take a Disney cruise!

It can be tempting to want to wait for a better deal, but with Disney Cruise Lines, the best way to get a good price is to book as early as possible.

By booking in advance, you’ll be able to get the first choice of cabin and still get an amazing deal. You can even make payments when you book a cruise with Get Away Today, which is a huge benefit to booking in advance. With itineraries available for up to two years out, that gives you plenty of time to save.

Watch Disney Cruise Release Dates

Another great time to book a Disney Cruise? When dates are released for new sailings. Those dates are super important because they offer the best availability at the lowest prices. Disney usually releases cruise itineraries in groups and about 12-18 months early.

If you have a future sail date in mind, the best way to keep an eye on it is to call our Cruise Specialists and make sure they know you’re hoping to book. You can reach them at 877-510-2929.

Then, when it’s time to hold your spot on a Disney Cruise, be ready to make a down payment. From there you can make flexible payments before you travel.

Disney Cruise Line Inside Cabins

Interior staterooms are the least expensive option on Disney cruises. This is because inside rooms don’t have a window or balcony to the outside. If you are only traveling with 2-4 people, these can be a great option to get the best price on a cruise.

With so many things to see and do on Disney cruises, you’ll likely only be in your room to sleep. Plus, since the inside staterooms get very dark, they work perfectly for those who are light sleepers. Just make sure to set an alarm so you don’t miss anything!

If you’re worried about seasickness, it may be worth the money to upgrade to an ocean view stateroom. Keep in mind this will be more expensive than an inside cabin, but still less expensive than a stateroom with a balcony. There are so many cabin types, you might be surprised where you could save some money.

Disney Cruises for Large Groups

If you’re traveling with a family of five or more, we can help you compare the price of two cabins instead of a Suite.

Our cruise experts can even help book cabins that are right next to each other or connecting. Another popular choice for families with older children is booking one ocean view cabin and an inside cabin straight across the hall. That way, Mom and Dad get the extra perk of an ocean view while the kids are still nearby.

Choose the Closest Port to Home

Disney Cruises don’t just sail from Florida. In fact, there are cruise ports all around the world, including the West Coast.

By finding a cruise port near you, you can save on travel to the start point. All those extra savings can then be spent on experiences like spa treatments or excursions once you’re aboard!

Speaking of excursions and spa treatments, you’ll want to start budgeting as soon as you start looking at a cruise. While so much is included in your cruise (see why we think Disney Cruises are the best here), there are other things like excursions, souvenirs, spa treatments and specialty dining experiences to consider.

By budgeting for them in the beginning, you won’t be surprised or feel like you missed out on anything during the cruise. Plus, some cruise lines even offer discounts if you purchase certain things (like spa treatments or drink packages) in advance.

There you have it – our top tips for getting the best price on a Disney Cruise. When you call our cruise experts at Get Away Today you won’t just be getting the best price. You’ll also be getting the best service, which includes extra goodies, need-to-know tips and more. Our cruise department makes sure to take care of you every step of the way, from the moment you call us at 877-510-2929 for a quote until the end of the cruise itself. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
