Money-Saving Ideas (continued)

Move to Florida

We’re not serious about moving, but if you’re already a Florida resident you may get discounts up to 50% off select cruises (limited staterooms). Call Disney at 888-325-2500 or your travel agent to inquire about Florida resident discounts, or check http://www.mousesavers.com.

Book Your Next Cruise Onboard

On your next Disney cruise, check the Personal Navigator or the Cruise Sales Desk on Deck 4 for onboard specials. Booking onboard offers great prices (10% less than usual, recently), sometimes with reduced deposits (recently 10% for 7-night or longer sailings) and/or onboard credits ($100-$200, lately). The best rates may be for sailing at the same time next year, there may be blackout dates, and you must reserve before you disembark. If you see a deal, grab it—you can change or cancel your reservation later if necessary (you must complete travel within 24 months); just call Disney at 888-325-2500. Tip: When you book onboard you can ask to have the cruise assigned to the same travel agent who booked your original cruise, or you can transfer your booking to the agent of your choice when you return home (must transfer within 30 days of booking).

Stay Off-Site Before Your Cruise

If you’re like us and prefer to arrive at least a day ahead of your cruise, look for an inexpensive hotel or motel. In-airport hotels can be pricey—to save money, see page 76. Lodging is described beginning on page 75. It can sometimes be less expensive to fly in a day early, so always investigate.

Compare Local Transportation Costs

Depending on your party size, it can be less expensive to rent a car to drive from the airport to the port and back again. On the other hand, transportation companies such as Quicksilver Tours & Transportation may offer price plus convenience. Explore your options starting on page 77.
