New Disney Dream Sail Dates

© Disney

The first time I set foot on the Disney Dream, I fell in love. The Dream & the Fantasy are my favorite cruise ships in the cruising industry. They have an excellent balance of things for kids, things for the whole family, but also plenty for just the adults. The adult area on these two ships are simply amazing and the teen area (for some day when mine are older) has got to be the coolest club on the high seas. I mean, they have their own hot tub and sun deck!!

A great option for guests that LOVE Walt Disney World but may want to try a Disney Cruise or those that want to do both but don’t cant travel for more than 7 nights or so, I suggest the Land & Sea option (or what I like to call Surf & Turf : )

This is a 3 or 4 night sailing that is paired with a few days at Disney World. The Disney Dream just added new sailings that cater to this type of guest perfectly!

They added the following itineraries for 2020:

3-Night Bahamian Cruises 
Disney Dream from Port Canaveral, FL 
New 2020 Sail Dates: Aug. 24, 27; Sept. 3, 2020

4-Night Bahamian Cruises 
Disney Dream from Port Canaveral, FL 
New 2020 Sail Dates: Aug. 30; Sept. 6, 10, 2020

More dates will be released for later in 2020 as well if you are looking to travel early in the school year or on one of awesome Halloween Sailings or Holiday Sailings. Stay Tuned!!

If you are interested on pricing for one of these great cruises alone or would like to pair it with a stay at Disney World, I would love to help! I have great knowledge about the Disney Cruises which can be an awesome advantage to you while planning.

Top Reasons to Contact Me for Your Disney Destination & Universal Travel Needs

All of your Favorite Leading Ladies & Gentlemen – they all had one thing in common; An awesome sidekick!

Anna has Olaf, Aladdin has Genie, Mulan has Mushu & you can have me!!

Think of yourself as the leading lady or gentleman and think of me as just that – your awesome Disney Sidekick. I am here to help you turn your dreams into amazing memories to cherish for years to come as well as to help you with anything that may come up while you plan. If you are thinking to yourself, “I want total control of my trip and don’t want anyone planning for me and I prefer to make my own reservations.” No worries – I can do as little or as much as you would like. I can help you plan the whole trip, or I can just hold the reservation for you and watch for things that will impact your trip like closures, discounts, and more! It is all up to you!

Why use me as your Disney Sidekick? Here are several reasons:

Knowledge

When I chose to become a Travel Agent for Disney Destinations & Universal Resorts, I had to go through many courses and trainings from both companies. I actually had to earn a degree from Disney’s College of Knowledge before I could speak to any guests. Now that I am an established agent, I have to attend on-site trainings and conferences as well as a form of continuing education throughout the year. I am updated daily to changes, new attractions, closures, special events, and more. I make sure I know everything I need to know to make sure each guest has a fantastic experience without any unwanted surprises.

Experience

In addition to the formal courses I had to take, there is also the decades (yikes) of experience I have had with both companies. I have been going to Walt Disney World since before I said my first word. I have been over 50 times and each experience was a little different. I have been as a child, as an adult without kids, on a bachelorette trip, on my “Disney-moon”, and now several trips with children of all ages. I know the resorts, parks, transportation, and magical extras quite well in addition to all the tips and tricks to have the smoothest and least stressful trip possible.

I have taken several Disney Cruises as well so I am very familiar with the ships and itineraries and would love to help you plan your first or fiftieth Disney Cruise.

I have also been going to Universal since I was very small. My Father was in a line of work that got us VIP tours a few times so I even know some of the behind the scenes things. Not to mention, Harry Potter is my favorite book series so I get “lost” in the Wizarding World at least once a year.

Passion

I live and breathe the Magic of Disney. I have personally felt how it can bring people together. I am so passionate about helping guests with their trips because I want each guest to feel the magic and wonder that I feel when I am in Disney World.

Planning, Prepping & Tips

What should I bring in my park traveling bag? What should I leave home? What activities can I do with a small child while everyone else is riding the “big” rides? When can I check in for my Disney Cruise and why do it ASAP? What are the best FastPasses and how do I get them? Should I bring my kids with me to our Palo Reservation? How can I get a Cinderella Castle Reservation? What is the most romantic restaurant in Disneyland?

These are questions I get frequently and when you reserve with me I can help you with them and many, many others.

Perks

Travel Agents do have some fun things they are able to do for their guests – for example; If you are not staying at a Universal Resort but you would like to visit the parks, tickets that are purchased through me will get you into the parks an hour prior to the general public. This is usually only a perk reserved for resort guests but the tickets purchased from me through my agency will allow you to do that!

Time

Planning a Disney Cruise or a Disney World/Disneyland trip takes a lot of time. There are so many options to choose from, reservations to make (at an unbelievably early hour) phone calls to make that sometimes have high wait times…etc. Let me do that for you! Changing reservations or adding/taking away options often requires a phone call to Disney – I can do that for you as well.

Surprises!

Qualifying reservations receive our Minnie Box (or Adventure Packet for Universal)!! This is a super fun surprise that is unique to the wonderful agency I am a part of – Magical Vacations LLC. This is a box that will be mailed to you prior to you leaving for your trip. It is full of magic and surprises tailored to your family’s vacation.

Just Me!

You may need to contact several different departments of Disney to get your trip all set up – The Disney Cruise Line for your cruise needs, Guest Services to modify Magical Express & transfer you after a cruise or a flight, multiple different numbers to contact if you want to add Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique, golf, spa experiences…etc. When you reserve through me, I am your one point of contact – Just me! Just let me know what you need and I make all the calls and sit on all the holds!

Money

Yes – Travel Agents can save you money! My knowledge alone can help you make informed decisions that can easily save you money. In addition, like I said earlier, I do watch closely for discounts released after you reserve and if your trip qualifies, I can have it applied to your trip. I do have guests that book their trip through me and make all of their own reservations themselves. They handle their entire trip because that is what they like to do. I just hold the reservation for them and watch for discounts.

I just saved a guest over $1000 last week when three different promotions were released. There were limited rooms to the offer but I was able to modify her reservation and have it changed before most even knew about the promotion. $1000! That is a lot of Mickey Head Ice Creams!

Contact me!

Now that you know the many wonderful things I can do to make your trip as magical and memorable as possible, contact me! I would love to help you and your family turn your Dreams into Memories!

Already Booked?

If you are already reserved for your Disney Cruise, Aulani, Adventures by Disney, Disney World or Disneyland trip but you would like me to assist you going further, let me know! We may be able to transfer your reservation over so that I can help you with anything you need going forward.

Disney has just released their Summer of 2020 cruise itineraries. They are headed back to Greece after a long hiatus and there will be 5 brand new ports of call visited, all in Europe. It is going to be a very exciting time to cruise!

Mediterranean

Climb aboard the Disney Magic & sail the Mediterranean. Through three separate sailings departing from Rome, the Magic will sail through the Greek Isle’s to Ports in Athens, Olympia, Santorini, Mykonos, and Crete. Once finished with Greece, the cruise will head to Italy and/or France, depending on the Itinerary.

Other sailings in the Mediterranean depart from Spain and include stops at several ports in Italy & France.

Departing from England or Denmark, guests can experience all new ports of call including Poland, Norway, England, & Belgium.

Alaska

Disney will once again sail to Alaska next Summer with the Disney Wonder. Departing from Vancouver, guests will cruise up and through Alaska taking in breathtaking views of wildlife & glaciers. The port-of-call adventures are also incredible and not to be missed!

Caribbean & Bahamas

The Disney Fantasy will spend the summer cruising both the Caribbean & the Bahamas. These cruises will be 3, 4, 5, or 9 nights long. The Disney Dream will cruise the Bahamas with cruises that are 3, 4, and 5 nights long. Absolutely LOVE Castaway Cay? Some of these itineraries stop there twice!

Enhance your Cruise

If you want to enhance your cruise in a big Disney way, try pairing your cruise with Adventures by Disney or Disney world. You can pick a “surf & turf” option where you spend some time at Disney World before or after your sailing. Adventures by Disney offers pre-cruise escapes as well as offer onboard and port enhancements. Ask for more details!

These itineraries will book up very quickly. They go on sale to the public on March 7th but may be available to you sooner if you are already part of the Castaway Club.
