If the prices drop in Sept you can rebook at the discounted rate. Up until your paid in full date.

Disney is usually a tier based pricing system means as the ship fills up, the cost will go up. As mentioned you can take advantage of a lower rate if it happens, but book now for better pricing.

The weather might be nicer too in September. We went in late Feb this year and the water was quite cool at castaway cay... not sure how much cooler it would be in Jan.

There needs to be 1 legal adult in each room... however, if DCL considers 17 & under as children, I think anyone 18+ is an adult.

I know at least one person has to be 21 on Royal Caribbean to stay in their own cabin, unless cruising with parents. I'm sure that's to keep hordes of 18-20 year old college kids from booking spring break cruises. I guess most college kids can't afford to book a Disney spring break cruise!

Thanks everyone!

I've been looking at the age restrictions for cruises. The Disney Cruise Line is one of the fiew who accepts people 18 and up. The only thing is that everybody has to have 18 in the cabin!

Most of the age restrictions for cruises are that there must be at least one person who is 21 years and older in the cabin.

Definately check on the age verification by calling DCl reservations and asking to speaki with a supervisor. Also ask to get it in writting or email if possible. YOu can always ask for their email address and then email them to confirm the info they gave to you.

As for when to travel, I love January when its least expensive. The water might be cold but not bad. The only issue is if the water is choppy and the ship wont be able to dock at CC.
Make sure you call and check

Magical Sailing!
