Disney Cruise Line changes placeholder date policy

When booking a cruise while onboard Disney Cruise Line, guests will no longer have to select a sail date to take advantage of any onboard booking offers. The perks to booking your next cruise while still on the ship include a reduced deposit amount, a 10% fare discount and a shipboard credit from Disney Cruise Line. Before this policy change, cruisers would have to either know which cruise they wanted to take or book what is often referred to as a “dummy date” as a way to secure the offers, then change dates once they decided on an actual date.

The deposit for these cruises will be $200 per stateroom. The policy of needing to sail within 24 months of the original booking has not changed.
