Update to the Disney Cruise Line Placeholder Reservation Policy
Since placeholder reservations were first introduced several years ago, Disney Cruise Line has asked guests to make a payment for any additional deposit amount at the time of selecting an actual sail date. Effective immediately, guests and travel agents selecting a sail date for a placeholder reservation will now have the standard 3-day hold period to pay any additional deposit amounts owed.
If the full deposit amount is not met by the due date, the reservation will be canceled, and any onboard offer benefits received when the placeholder reservation was booked will be forfeited. Please note that if a reservation with an onboard offer applied is canceled due to non-payment, the reservation cannot be reinstated.
