Top Six Reasons to Book Your 2015 Disney Cruise Now!

Recently on Facebook I mentioned that Disney Cruise Line has released their 2015 summer sailings, including amazing itineraries to the home of Disney’s “Frozen” – Norway!  2015 may seem far off, but here are six reasons to book your 2015 Disney Cruise today!

1.  First Choice Stateroom Category – Booking early ensures you get the stateroom category you desire!  Did you know that Disney Cruise Line has the fewest inside staterooms available to guests?   There are also limited staterooms that can sleep a family of 5.  These staterooms sell out quickly due to the lower costs of inside staterooms and the demand for both room types so it’s imperative to book early to secure the stateroom category you prefer.

2.  Best Pricing – Disney Cruise Line is most affordable when booked well in advance.  The closer  you get to the sailing the more expensive rates normally get.

3.  Included Value of a Disney Cruise – There are so many extras included in a Disney cruise.

  • One of the biggest included values is that ALL soda, coffee, tea and water are included.
  • And all the ice cream you can possibly eat!
  • Kids clubs are included for kids of all ages, including a special TWEEN club and TEEN club!
  • ALL dining options are included!  (Can you say no upcharge for filet or lobster????)
  • First Run Movies
  • 24-Hour Room Service (Seriously, room service is FREE!)
  • Adult Only Areas
  • Themed Parties like the famed Pirate Deck Party
  • Fireworks
  • Strollers, wagons and wheelchairs on Castaway Cay (first come, first serve)

4.  Adult Only Areas – When you think Disney you might think kids, but Disney provides ample adult only space onboard their ships and at Castaway Cay, their private island paradise.

5.  Castaway Cay – Disney’s private island in the Bahamas is the perfect place to relax or get active!  From the two family beaches, Pelican Plunge, BBQ, games and FREE Kids Clubs to the relaxing, adults only Serenity Beach with it’s hammocks, bar and BBQ Castaway Cay has everything for families and adults alike!  You can rent a cabana for the day, get a massage or run a FREE 5K!

6.  Pay a deposit now and the balance isn’t due until NEXT YEAR!  That’s right, for most summer sailings your deposit wouldn’t be due until next year!  Plus, you can make payments along the way as you count down to your cruise.

BONUS: Book your 2014 OR 2015 cruise by April 30th and receive a $40 onboard credit as my thank you to you!

Frequently Asked Questions On Transfer Reservations

How Much Is The Disney Gift Card?

The amount of the FREE Disney gift card varies based on the total package price of your Disney vacation.  (Not including airfare)

$1500-2000                         FREE $15 Disney Gift Card

$2001-3500                         FREE $25 Disney Gift Card

$3500 and up                      FREE $50 Disney Gift Card

How Do I Add You As My Travel Agent on a Disney Reservation?

We will email you a form that you sign and fax to Disney.  It takes about 3 business days for Disney to add us to the reservation.  Your package stays exactly the same, Disney only adds our name as the agency helping you plan your vacation.  We will then mail you your FREE Disney gift card with your final travel package to add a little extra magic to your Disney vacation!

Does Anything Change on my Reservation?

No, everything on your reservation stays exactly the same!  The only difference is that our agency is added to your reservation enabling you to receive exemplary customer service and all the Mouse Perks that we offer!

Can I Add You To A Reservation Made with Another Travel Agent or AAA?

As an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, Disney allows us to take over a reservation, because Disney knows we will take exceptional care of their guests.  Our guests are much happier and better prepared for their vacation than a guest that books directly with Disney!  For this reason, Disney allows us to take over your reservation.

As a professional courtesy, we do not take over travel agent bookings.  Travel Agents are not paid and only make money on commissions from the destination.  If you have been working with a travel agent, they worked hard to help you plan your trip so we do not take over bookings from fellow travel agents.

Are There Fees To Add You To Our Reservation?

No fees what-so-ever are incurred when you transfer your reservation!  Our services are always free to you.  Our commission is paid directly by Disney.  You simply get fabulous service and loads of extra benefits!

When Do I Get My Disney Gift Card? 

Once your trip reservations are paid in full, you will receive your Disney Gift Card with your final package documents.
