Disney Cruise Line is further extending their temporary final payment deadline an additional month. For sailings through October 31, 2021, Disney Cruise Line is temporarily extending final payment until 60 days prior to sailing for Guests booked in unrestricted stateroom categories. This means that those Guests who have not yet reached their final payment due date can wait until up to 60 days prior to sailing to pay for their cruise vacation. Onboard cruise activities can be scheduled within your Castaway Club booking window once final payment is received.

Additional details on the Cruise Date Flexibility Option can be found on our website at DisneyCruise.com.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard for your sailing and hope that this added flexibility is helpful.

*This temporary Cruise Date Flexibility is valid for new and existing reservations booked prior to May 31, 2021, and allows Guests to change their departure up to 15 days before their sailing for any cruise departing through October 31, 2021. Guests that wish to change their sail date must move to a future sailing that commences on or before September 30, 2022. Prevailing rates apply and Guests are responsible for any balance due after the reservation has been modified. Guests are unable to return to their original sail date once the reservation has been changed. Should you cancel your new sail date, any cancellation fees applicable to the original sail date will be deferred and applied as a minimum cancellation fee to the future sailing. Standard air cancellation fees apply for Guests who booked flights through Disney Cruise Line.

    We’re booked for the end of October and I think it’s actually going to happen. We’re all very excited.

    I hope they go off as well. We are PIF for our end of Oct cruise (It already has the 125% offer). Disney has a method to their madness. Less paid in full cruises they have to offer the 125% to if they cancel.
