One of the most common questions I am asked is how much does a Disney Fantasy Cruise cost?

This article is the latest in a series that I am writing about the costs of a Disney Cruise.

Here I am comparing the prices for comparable sailings on the Disney Fantasy Cruise Cost for Summer 2021 and 2022 to see how prices are different.

Are prices going up for Disney Cruises? Has the fact that there is so much pent up demand for Disney cruises in 2021 and 2022 meant that prices have increased?

Let us see by comparing the opening day prices for Summer 2021 and 2022 for the Disney Dream. The answers surprised me.

Who can get opening day prices on a Disney Cruise?

The system that DCL uses is that the week before anyone can make bookings, the itineraries for the Disney ships are announced.

They always follow the same pattern that cruises will be released to certain categories in stages according mostly to your Castaway Club status.

  • Monday – Platinum Castaway Club Members and Disney’s Golden Oaks residents
  • Tuesday  – Gold Castaway Club Members
  • Wednesday – Silver Castaway Club members, Adventures by Disney Insiders, and DVC members who have not previously sailed with DCL.
  • Thursday – General Public

The 2022 Disney Fantasy sailings were released on Monday March 22, 2021.

The 2021 Disney Fantasy sailings were released on Monday February 25, 2020.

All the rates shown below are for the opening day prices. Usually what happens is that the prices will increase, sometimes significantly, over the next few days.

This means that the Platinum Castaway Club members usually get a better rate than Gold, Silver and the general public.

Because there is such demand for Disney Cruises prices usually go up over time.

I am testing this theory by keeping track of Summer 2022 prices for each ship. You can see the results, some of which are very surpriisng.

All prices shown are for the lowest priced stateroom in each category for 2 adults and include taxes and port charges.

Staterooms are available for 3 and 4 guests. There are limited staterooms for 5. Concierge staterooms are also available for up to 7 guests. Additional guests are charged at a lower rate than guests 1 and 2.

Here I am comparing the opening day 2021 prices with opening day 2022 prices for the summer for Disney Dream sailings. The dates will be slightly different of course, but the comparable sailing is taken.

For example if a 3 night sailing sails on 22nd June one year, it may be 23rd the next.

For some of the 2021 sailings there just isn’t a comparison for 2022. For instance, there are no 3, 4 or 6 night sailings on the Disney Fantasy in summer 2022, so it isn’t possible to compare prices

All prices are opening day prices – so if you look now, the prices are likely higher.

This 5 night cruise sails on 7/16/22 and 7/17/21. The difference between the 2 is that the 2022 cruise has a port stop in Cozumel instead of Nassau.

For the following cruises here is a big surprise. Many of the 2021 opening day prices are actually higher than the comparable 2022 opening day prices.

However, Concierge Staterooms don’t follow this pattern. The prices for 2022 for Concierge are all higher than 2021.

  • Port Canaveral

You will see here that the price difference between 2021 and 2022 for this Disney Fantasy Eastern Caribbean cruise which includes San Juan as a port stop is considerable.

This is probably for 2 reasons. The first is that this cruise in 2021 was over July 4. Cruise costs are usually higher over the Ju.y 4 holiday. Compare this will the dates in late September for 2022 – the dates are in much less demand than July 4.
