I just used csatravelprotection.com......received the info on this site! They were much less expensive than Disney. You must purchase the insurance before you pay for your cruise!

Have a great trip!

I compared DCL's Disney Cruise Vacation Plan to the travel insurance of two local travel agencies. Although DCL's Disney Cruise Vacation Plan was a tad bit higher (not by much at all) than the travel insurances being offered, we felt that DCL's coverage would protect our family better. For the small difference in price, it just was not worth it for us to go for a bargain. DCL's Vacation Protection Plan is more than just travel insurance, you get Trip Cancellation/Interruption Protection, Travel Delay Protection, Emergency Medical/Dental benefits, Emergency Medical Transportation, Baggage Coverage and Delay Protection, and a 24-hour Emergency Assistance hotline number to call. You can get information about their Cruise Vacation Plan by contacting DCL directly or going to disneycruise.com.

Happy Sailing!!!

CSA offers all of those protections also. They also have a policy for "pre-exisiting conditions" if you need that (we did not).

We also used CSA when we traveled in June. The price was good and the policy was what we needed. Fortunately, we didn't need to use it, but I would definintely use them again for peace of mind..especially if you have children or older family members....you never know who will get sick when and we didn't want to loose all that money!!

We are going with CSA also-we aren't risking anything by going with them-and we are saving $$$$

I bought DCL's trip insurance. I only got it for the trip cancellation part and I normally don't get trip insurance at all, but after my cruise last month and my mother-n-law having quad by-pass surgery right before our last cruise and her still not be able to take care of herself I figured I better get it. I bought DCL's becuase it's really not to a bad price and it was very convient since I booked directly through Disney.

We went with CSA, it's a great policy and cost alot less than what Disney was selling for. We are flying down the day before and CSA covers our hotel and rental car as well as flight, trip cancelation, lost luggage, delay in travel. You name it they cover it. We have never bought travel insurance before but felt more comfortable buying it because of the kids. We are traveling in a few weeks and didn't purchase it until the end of September. We got our policy about a week after filling out the application on thier web sight. Hope we don't have to use it but feel much better having it. Good luck Tracy
