Disney Cruise Line Announces Summer 2023 Itineraries (May – September) – Disney Dream Heading to Europe • The Disney Cruise Line Blog

Disney Cruise Line released their Summer 2023 itineraries today for the fleet. The major news in today’s itinerary announcement is the redeployment of the Disney Dream to Europe. The Disney Wonder which continues to remain on the West Coast will spend the summer in Alaska. The Disney Fantasy and Disney Wish remain at Port Canaveral offering Caribbean and Bahamian cruises. The Disney Magic will offer sailings from Miami and San Juan.

Disney Cruise Line is still loading the sailings so this remains a work in progress and will be updated multiple times today.

Today’s release extends the available sail dates through the summer months of 2023 giving guests options for their future cruise credits and plan vacations more than one year out, as well as take advantage of opening day pricing for some of the new itineraries.

There is a change in the tiered booking cadence. While Summer 2023 dates were announced today, general booking will not open until Monday May 9th. The new spread out tiered booking period will begin Monday May 2nd for Castaway Club Members and some others.

  • Monday May 2nd – Platinum Members, Golden Oak Club Members and Club 33 Members
  • Tuesday May 3rd – Gold Castaway Club members
  • Thursday May 5th – Silver Members, Disney Vacation Club Members and Adventures by Disney Insiders
  • Monday May 9th, first time cruisers will be able to book.

If you’re an existing Castaway Club member, simply log in to your account now to verify your Castaway Club status, so you’ll be all set to book on your designated date. Alternatively, you can call (800) 388-4513 starting at 8:00 AM Eastern Time or contact your travel agent.

Castaway Club members can book online beginning Monday! The only caveat is that this is for new bookings only as the website is quiet not set up to move a placeholder to a new booking. Those types of bookings will still require a phone call.

The following bears repeating, please do NOT try calling today to book; this will just clog up the phone lines and bog down the reservation cast members. There may be people attempting to book an available cruise vacation today.

A look at opening day prices for the Summer 2023 sailings will be posted in the coming days.

For those looking for Fall 2023 dates, we anticipate the next release to occur sometime in the spring just before the summer season gets underway based on the historical itinerary release cycle.

Below you will find a breakout by ship, but this is a WORK IN PROGRESS AND INCOMPLETE UNTIL THIS MESSAGE IS UPDATED Disney Cruise Line is still loading the sailings. I will be updating the website throughout the day as I load the sailings and upload the new itinerary maps. The best way to be alerted to updates is by following me on Twitter @TheDCLblog – I will tweet updates as I add the sailings to the website and update this article. At the very end, you will find Disney Cruise Line’s Summer 2023 Itinerary Announcement press release.
