DCL website automatic balance update?

Would anybody happen to know if Disney Cruise Line decides to lower the price of a cruise before the pay in full date, if Disney automatically updates the balance due when you go to make a payment? Or would we have to contact the cruise line to have the new, lower amount applied to your booking?

Rarely DCL will actually lower the price of a cruise.

Occasionally, if a cruise isn't selling well, after the PIF date they will offer discounted rates to fill the ships. These rates can be for FL residents, military, Kids Sail Free, or the last minute restricted fares (IGT, OGT, VGT).

When planning to book a cruise, I usually watch the price before booking. I have seen Disney cruise prices lower, and raise before for the same sailing over time. Im not sure of Disney's reasoning behind this, but it does happen.

I know for a fact once the pay in full date has passed for a particular sailing, Disney is usually pretty good about applying a credit to your card if the price has gone down. I'm just not sure if they apply it to your balance if you haven't paid in full yet.

Some of the promotions that DCL offers close to the sail date are for new bookings only, which means you would need to cancel your existing reservation in order to be eligible for the promotional price. If this happens before your PIF, you're in luck -- just cancel your original reservation and rebook. Depending on the price difference and the amount of your deposit on the original reservation, you are sometimes still better off canceling, losing the deposit, and rebooking under the promotion.
