While this field guide could serve as your single source, we recommend you gather as much information as possible. Each of the sources described below offers its own unique porthole into the world of Disney cruising.

Official Disney Information—Definitely get the free booklet and DVD we mentioned on page 20, and visit the web site (http://www.disneycruise.com). Any other brochures you can get from your travel agent will be helpful, too. Disney also sends cruise documentation (more about this on page 64) that contains some basic information.

Books—Disney published an official guidebook, Birnbaum’s Disney Cruise Line, starting in 2004. The most recent edition was published in 2013. The folks at Unofficial Guides picked up the slack in 2014, debuting The Unoffical Guide to the Disney Cruise Line. The first edition of PassPorter’s Disney Cruise Line debuted in 2003. And while virtually all Walt Disney World Resort guidebooks mention the Disney Cruise Line, most only give it a few pages. The two with the most information are Fodor’s Walt Disney World with Kids by Kim Wright Wiley and The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World by Bob Sehlinger. Both have about 10 pages on the topic. Several other PassPorter publications contain information on Disney Cruise Line: PassPorter’s Cruise Clues is an e-book filled with cruise tips, packing lists, and cruise line comparisons, PassPorter’s Disney Weddings & Honeymoons is another book with solid information on getting married or honeymooning onboard a Disney cruise ship, and PassPorter’s Disney Vacation Club covers cruising on points.

Web Sites—Some of the best sources of information are the official and unofficial sites for the Disney Cruise Line. Here are our picks:

    The Cruise Clues link goes to a broken link.

    You are viewing page 36, which is section 16 of chapter 1 of PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line guidebook.
