Pregnant Mom not allowed to board Disney Cruise

Pregnant Women beware! Disney has a policy that pregnant women can not cruise after 24 weeks. If you buy a Disney Cruise on Expedia there is no notice of the policy. If you like me don't learn of the policy until a few days before the cruise sale date and are more than 24 weeks, both Disney and Expedia will refuse to refund your money.

Has anyone else had this issue? Any luck getting your money back? My husband never would have booked the trip if he had known.

If they have this policy posted in the Terms and Conditions on their website and/or inside their brochure then you should have known or could have known. I think that will be their position.

I'm sorry that you did not book with a Disney expert, a travel agent. They know these things and, in this case, certainly could have saved you two a lot of $$$. It is harder than one supposes to be your own travel agent. That's why there are folks doing it as a full time job. I hope you can still afford to enjoy your babymoon, just perhaps ashore.

Hi Serena,

Thanks for posting here as it's a good 'heads up' for others. It must have been extremely disappointing to realize that you couldn't take the cruise.

24 weeks is fairly standard amongst the cruise lines, with a few variations. Here's a list that might be of help to others:

Thanks for the info, we have just booked a Disney cruise leaving Sept 20th. And we are trying to fall pregnant, as we are flying from overseas I won't be going at all if I'm at least 5 months along, Disney have a good cancellation/reschedule policy and I will know by the time the final payment is due.
