When will Late 2025 Early 2026 Disney Cruise Itineraries Be Available to Book?

Sharing is caring!

As Disney Cruise Line enthusiasts eagerly await the next wave of itineraries, the excitement is building for the release of cruise dates for late 2025 and early 2026.

Only DCL knows the exact date that sailings will be released, but we have been following this now for a decade and there is a pattern that gives us some hints as to when the 2025 sailings will be released to book.

When Will Disney Cruise Line Release Late 2025 to Early 2026 Dates?

Historically, Disney Cruise Line has staggered the release of its itineraries.

Typically, dates for the latter part of the year and early into the next are announced in the spring or summer of the preceding year.

For instance, if we follow this pattern, we can expect the release of late 2025 and early 2026 dates to occur around mid-2024.

You can see from this chart that the late sailings have been released from as early as May 11, to as late as July 25.

I doubt that the 2025 sailings will be released any later than the end of June.

When the sailings are released there are also different dates that you can book, which vary according to your Castaway Club status.

Golden Oak, DVC members and Adventure Insiders also get some priority.

Here is the booking release schedule for the Summer 2025 Disney Cruises.

How to Prepare for Booking

  1. Stay Informed: Sign up for the EverythingMouse Newsletter and get a Free 30 Page Cruise Planner. We will keep you informed of all the Disney Cruise News.
  2. Follow us on Facebook. We will let you know as soon as anything is announced.
  3. Be Ready to Book: Popular itineraries and staterooms can sell out quickly. Have your travel dates, preferred stateroom categories, and payment information ready to go as soon as the bookings open.

Why Book Early?

Booking early offers several advantages:

  • Best Selection: Secure your preferred stateroom category and location.
  • Lower Pricing: Usually prices rise from opening day.
  • Peace of Mind: Ensure your spot on the cruise of your choice, giving you plenty of time to plan the rest of your vacation.

What to do when Cruises are Released

When you are eligible to book make sure you are logged into your Castaway Cay account, or the itineraries will not be displayed as available to book unless it is past the open booking day.

Be prepared with your dates and familiarize yourself with the options such as stateroom type, location, and have some second and third choices ready as your first may not be available.

Be patient.

Particularly in the first booking days there are many people trying to book the same staterooms and cruises. It may take you a very long time to get through on the phone and the website may be slow.

If you want to make this process a lot easier and also get some Free Onboard Credit then the best way is to use a Disney Authorized Travel Agent.
