Disney Cruise Line Presents:

The Disney Wish

Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship is going to be its most Magical and Majestic yet. I am hoping I am fortunate to sail her with my family in early 2023. She is currently being built in the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. She will set sail for the first time Summer of 2022.

The Wish will be Disney’s 5th ship in its fleet and the first ship to have an actual attraction at sea! The AquaMouse will take the water-coaster to a new level!

In addition to many other innovations, this ship will have The Star Wars:Hyper Space Lounge. A perfectly themed lounge that will be open to families during the day but strictly adults in the evenings.

The Oceaneer Lab will be home to the Marvel Super Hero Academy. It will also have Rapunzel’s Art Studio and an Imagineering Lab! I have always wanted to know what it was like to be an imagineer and it is awesome that kids today will get a chance to find out.

Want to get “Out There” and see this amazing ship and its destinations? Know that “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” and I would love to help you reserve and plan this amazing dream vacation. There are several dates to keep track of for payments, reservations, possible price drops, excursions…etc and often, many calls to make. Let me handle all the stress for you while you and your family get excited for your trip! You receive all my knowledge & complimentary planning services when you reserve your cruise through me – the same price as booking through Disney but with the added value!

Disney Cruise Line Announces Summer 2022 Itineraries

Who is ready to walk through the most friendly “ear”port in the world?! Disney Cruise Line just announced their sailings for the summer of 2022. They are returning to some old favorite as well as spreading magic to some new places.

Europe

The Disney Magic will be sailing to several different places. They will start with the Greek Isles and the Mediterranean. They will then sail to northern Europe to visit places like the Baltic, British Isles (look for Hans in those Southern ones!), Iceland, and the Norwegian Fjords. Do you think you will spot some famous Frozen Sisters?!

New ports of call:

  • Chania, Greece
  • Porto, Portugal
  • Riga, Latvia
  • Maloy, Norway
  • Nynashamn, Sweden, near Stockholm

Alaska

The Disney Wonder will return to Alaska in 2022. Guests can take in amazing views of glaciers, mountains, local wildlife, and more. These 7 night itineraries will depart from Vancouver and stop at Dawes Glacier, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan.

Caribbean

New in 2022, Disney Cruise Line will call Miami a home port. All sailings out of Miami will visit the famous and beautiful Castaway Cay.

Out of Port Canaveral, the Fantasy will sail several different Caribbean itineraries that range from 5-9 nights. All of these sailings will also stop at Castaway Cay.

The Disney Wish

The Disney Wish is still set to make its debut as the 5th ship in the Disney Cruise Fleet in the Summer of 2022. As soon as I have further details, I will be sure to share them here.

Pre & Post Cruise Disney Enchantment

If your cruise itinerary just isn’t long enough for you, why not add on some extra magic? Guests sailing out of Port Canaveral & Miami are conveniently situated right near Walt Disney World before and after their sailing. Why not add on a few extra days of excitement? I like to call this the Surf & Turf option!

If you are sailing out of other ports, check out an Adventure by Disney Escape. These are amazing VIP experiences where you will see some of these beautiful destinations around the world in a way that you will never forget. For more information on Adventures by Disney, visit my Adventures by Disney page or contact me today!

Now the important part! – When to Reserve

Disney Cruise Line is not like most other lines where the closer you get to the cruise, the lower the price will go. They book every room every sailing fairly early on. That is why, the best time to purchase and the way to save the most is to book as soon as it is released. As the rooms book up, the prices may increase. Here is when you can reserve!

For my Disney Cruise Line Castaway Club Members, Disney Vacation Club Members and/or Adventures by Disney Adventure Insiders:

  • Platinum Castaway Club Members & Golden Oak – March 22, 2021
  • Gold Castaway Club Members – March 23, 2021
  • Silver Castaway Club Members, Disney Vacation Club Members and Adventures by Disney Adventure Insiders – March 24, 2021

Reservations open to the rest of the public on March 25, 2021


Let’s start talking about your Disney Cruise dreams today and let me help you turn them into Magical Memories that will last a lifetime! When you reserve with me, I can make all the early morning and late night calls and sit on all the long holds while you go about your life. I keep track of all the important dates along the way so you do not have to. I am also constantly monitoring for price changes, excursion information, and more. Not to mention, I absolutely love Disney Cruise Line and I will plan your trip with the attention to detail as I would my own. If I can’t sail all the time, why not see the joy through planning others!

Plus, all Disney Cruise Line vacations reserved through me will receive The Minnie Box! Full of information and small gifts of excitement to make getting ready for your trip that much more special.

See Ya Real Soon!

National Plan For A Vacation Day!

The last Tuesday of January is National Plan for a Vacation Day. It comes at a perfect time – the holidays are over, the weather is miserable, and there are no school breaks to look forward to for a while.

Having a vacation planned gives families something to look forward to together. When we have a Disney trip planned, we do family movie nights each weekend. One night, we make diner together and watch a different Disney Movie. If I am feeling really crafty, I will plan the dinner around the movie – Spaghetti & meatballs with Lady & The Tramp, Hawaiian Chicken with Moana, Pizza with Toy Story, Beef & Broccoli with Mulan…etc. Even as my littles are not so little anymore, this is something we all look forward to through the week and gets us talking about or exciting trip ahead.

Planning ahead also has a lot of benefits – you can spread out payments over several months and have longer to save for all the fun treats & souvenirs. You can take advantage of promotions as they come along as long as there is availability. You also have a better chance of getting the resort/ship & room category you prefer before they sell out. Let’s not forget the 180-day advanced dining reservations that are so coveted. Planning ahead gives you all of these advantages and more!

Which Disney Destination will you visit in 2020? Maybe it is time to try something new?! If you cruise often but haven’t checked out a Disney Cruise, it is time you see why they win all the awards that they do year after year. If you visit Disney World each year, step out of the box! Visit the west coast and see Disneyland or try a Disney Cruise. Looking to travel abroad to where your ancestors are from? Adventures by Disney has amazing options all around the globe that will have you experiencing other countries like you never thought you could.

Contact me today so we can “Plan For A Vacation”! My planning services are free of charge and I can assist you with stress-free preparations for a Magical Trip. Let’s get you something to be excited about in 2020!

Disney Cruise Line Wins Again!

© Disney

For the seventh year in a row, Disney Cruise Line has taken the #1 spot in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line Rankings. That is a major accomplishment and to hit it 7 years in a row is a testament to just how magical Disney Cruise Line really is!

Disney Cruise Line ears this award year after year for a few simple reasons:

The Disney Name – You know you are getting top of the line service, food, accommodations, and activities because it is all backed by the Disney Name. They make sure that every aspect of your Cruise is as magical as possible. They truly care about every detail and the way they are perceived.

The Disney Activities – Whether you are the youngest or oldest of Disney Fans, there is something for everyone. The Broadway-Style shows are breathtaking, the experiences & meals with the characters are so special, the pampering is unmatched and the deck parties are unprecedented. Disney does everything with the Disney touch and if you love Disney World or Disneyland for the magical feeling you get, then this should be your very next vacation. Plus, it is not just for families or younger children. The ships that Disney is building have whole sections dedicated to adults including lounges & bars, spas, and pool areas including one with the bar stools in the water! It is that magical Disney touch that is added to every aspect & activity of an amazing vacation that can take you to many parts of the US, Caribbean, and Europe.

The Rooms – The rooms on this cruise line are among the largest for their categories. They give you more space and more storage. They also have SPLIT BATHROOMS! If you have ever cruised with someone who takes a little longer to shower or get ready, you know how valuable this is. You have a shower and a sink in one room and a sink with a potty in another. Twice the space to get ready = happy family members.

Special Sailings – Disney Cruise Line provides several different themed cruises throughout the year. They include Halloween & Christmas Sailings but also Character themed sailings like Marvel & Star Wars Days at Sea. More info on those Here.

Value – Yes, Disney Cruises are more expensive than some other commercial lines. However, those other lines cannot begin to offer the what Disney does. You truly get what you pay for in this instance. The cast & crew, the meals, the shows, the kids clubs, the activities, deck parties, excursions, rooms, cleanliness (Lowest report of viruses in the industry due to their diligence), and the magic make it worth every penny.

Don’t take my word for it – Try it! Even the shortest of cruises will have you wanting to return. Oh, and that is another amazing part about Disney Cruise Line; their loyalty and benefits for repeat customers is like no other cruise line. They want you to return and they show it with all of the perks they offer.

Contact me today for more information or to reserve your Disney Cruise. My planning services are free of charge and my knowledge and position can save you time and money. Plus, every cruise guest receives our Minnie Box delivered to their doorstep before you leave for your cruise! I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Disney Cruise Line Returns to New Orleans & Favorite Tropical Destinations in Early 2021

© Disney

Starting in early 2021, Disney Cruise Line will begin using New Orleans as a home port for several cruises. This makes for a great opportunity – the home port is a destination of it’s own. You can tack on a few days before or after a Disney Cruise to explore the home of Tiana & Prince Naveen!

The Disney Wonder will sail to the Western Caribbean, Bahamas, 14 night Panama Canal, and also a new port in Mexico where you can explore Mayan Ruins. The Wonder will also sail out of Galveston in 2021. From this home port you can sail to Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Key West (a favorite of mine!), Castaway Cay, & Nassau.

If you are looking for a more Tropical Itinerary, look no further than the Disney Magic, Fantasy, and Dream. In early 2021, they will sail to the Bahamas, Eastern Caribbean, and Western Caribbean. The home port for the Magic will be Miami while the Fantasy and the Dream will leave out of Port Canaveral.

Which home port you sail out of can definitely enhance your trip. If you have never been to Miami and it is a place you hope to visit, sail an itinerary on the Magic and add a day or so before or after your trip. Of course, nothing beats sailing out of Port Canaveral and adding a few days at Disney World onto the front or back end of a cruise. I like to call that our “Surf & Turf” trips. They are my favorite – the best of both “worlds”.

Castaway Club Members can book these itineraries as early as September 30th for Platinum, October 1 for Platinum & Gold, and October 2 for Platinum, Gold, and Silver. They go on sale to the general public on October 3rd.

If you are interested in more information regarding one of these itineraries or to reserve, I would be happy to give you a no-obligation quote. My planning services are free of charge. I save guests time and frustrations by handling all their reservations, phone calls, and deadlines. I focus solely on Disney Cruises and do not book any other cruise line so I am very well versed in all things that need to be accomplished during you planning phase. I look forward to hearing from you!

Disney Cruise Line Purchases New Land

© Disney

With the upcoming addition of 3 new Ships and the itineraries they will add, Disney Cruise Line has decided they need an additional “Private” Beach.

Earlier this year, Disney Cruise Line purchased a new patch of land in the Bahamas. The beautiful island of Eleuthera has a lush area called Lighthouse Point. It is here where Disney will start constructing as soon as Environmental Plans and assessments are completed.

Since 2007, Disney has been putting a lot of focus on conservation and protecting our environment. Disney has been donating millions each year to protect and rehab coral reefs, especially in the Bahamas. The Government of the Bahamas and Disney have agreed upon the practices that they will use to construct on the land as well as the pier. Disney is looking to leave as little footprint as possible, agreeing to only develop 20% of the property and use sustainable building practices throughout construction. Also, instead of dredging a typical cruise ship channel, Disney Cruise Line will be building an open-trestle pier to lessen the impact on the environment.

One of the most exciting parts of the development of this island is the Imagineer that will be a very large part of design. Joe Rohde was at the forefront of design for Animal Kingdom and he also helped design Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii. When Joe is part of a project, you can feel the dedication and the love that went into it so I cannot wait to see what he does with this beautiful land. He has already spent a lot of time in Eleuthera meeting with locals and gaining knowledge of the art & culture. This will definitely be reflected in Lighthouse Point which is set to celebrate the culture of The Bahamas. Here is a video where Joe discusses this project and also gives a glimpse of Lighthouse Point-

Disney Cruise Line is hoping to begin construction in 2020 with completion around the end of 2021 or early 2022. Stay tuned for details!!

If you are interested in information on taking a Disney Cruise, I would love to help you and your loved ones plan a trip. Contact me today for a quote and for more information. My services are free of charge and I can provide you with some valuable planning advice through your booking journey. With me, you do not have to worry about calling in to make changes or add reservations – that is what I am here for. I anticipate those dates, make sure you are ready to book, and take care of it all at a very quick pace. All qualifying cruise reservations will receive The Minnie Box! A signature gift from the Agency I work with that is full of goodies and magic. Your vacation starts the moment you tug on the big yellow bow and open your gift. I hope to talk to you soon!
