Online and general booking is now open, I have now updated the first post with links to all the online booking pages for each sailing. You will have to adjust the room occupants and stateroom category to get the quote you are looking for.

All prices include Tax, Fees and Port Expenses
Prices are listed for Inside, Oceanview, Verandah and Concierge for each cruise

I'm booked! It says I can book activities from the 1st of July, if the booking is fully paid for. That's for someone with no Castaway Club membership. My booking is for London Tilbury. 571467

Here is an odd question:

I've never booked a cruise before, and when I filled out the dreams unlimited travel quote form, it asked if I had any special needs/disabilities. I put in that "I didn't really know if it classed as a disability or not from a cruise point of view, but I use a doctor-prescribed breathing machine when I sleep at night, so I needed a bed with a plug next to it, or a cruise approved extension cord."

Our quote came in and we are very happy with the price, then I noticed we were in a wheelchair accessible room. Now I'm a little worried what happens when I walk on board wheelchair free into this room and wether or not I'm going to raise any eyebrows. It certainly wasn't my intention!:guilty:

Can anyone with more experience comment? I might just be worrying over nothing...have any of you ever been in an accessible room you didn't specifically request?

Is there a reason to ring to book (ie onboard credit) that you don't get through booking online?

I’ve heard of people assigned those rooms (from speaking to others on past cruises I’ve been on) without requesting them, I don’t think Disney would question it but I’d drop your DU agent an email to chat it through to put your mind at ease :)

Also assuming you already know, but the sockets on the ships are US sockets if that impacts on your planning at all.

    just so you know, Disney does not give on board credit when you book with them direct either by phone or online. Onboard credit as far as I know is only given by specialist USA Disney travel agents like Dreams Unlimited. Dreams Unlimited get commission from Disney for selling the cruises. Dreams Unlimited give some of this commission back to their clients as on board credit.

    UK Highstreet Travel Agents dont sell enough Disney cruises to be able to afford to give away some of their commission.

    Here is an odd question:
    Agree with PP who suggests checking in with DU to clarify that you don't need a wheelchair accessible stateroom. There are relatively few of them onboard, so it would be nice if you can release it to someone who may have the need. But if it's the last room available, they don't hold it and you are allowed to book it. A wheelchair accessible room will not have a split bathroom, and be aware that the bathroom floor becomes wet from the shower.

    I assume you use what is often referred to as a CPAP or similar. DCL will provide an extension cord if necessary, though I think there may be outlets next to the bed installed during the last refurb; as PP mentioned they are US-style plugs so you may need an adapter. Also have your agent note if you will need distilled water because DCL can provide that, too.

    You can book with Dreams Unlimited, even though they are USA based. I am from Ireland and I have a 2022 Norwegian Fjords cruise booked with Dreams Unlimited. They have an online payment system and the money goes direct to Disney, they do not hold it. You will get the onboard credit, which is % of your cruise cost. I paid in US Dollar with my Irish credit card and have had no issues.

    Has anyone worked out the parking situation yet?
    The link from the Liverpool port information page takes you the to CPS Cruise and passenger services page which asks you to choose your cruise provider and Disney isn’t on the list.

    I can't seem to find the UK staycations on the DCL page of the dreams website. How have the rest of you done it?

    I did it through that page but I’ve looked and can see they are no longer listed.
    There is a list of agents on here that you can find by using the search function, maybe contact someone directly?

    i noticed that when i was having a nose (we are local so jumping the train in). You’d like to think they’d update it soon as i imagine a lot of people will be trying to book.

    Others have mentioned the US sockets, but don't forget unlike in Europe it's not just the shape of the plug but the voltage. You may need a step-up transformer unless your equipment handles both 120 and 240 V supply.
