    Hi! Am I able to see what activities we can book before our time slot opens up? We have a few families going together and would be great if we can plan before actually having to book since I hear it's a mad dash to book once time slot opens up.

    Ahoy there, Sonia! Welcome aboard planDisney! I'm super excited that your crew will be sailing this December! What a way to celebrate the end of 2022!

    When it comes to getting a head start on creating your wishlist of Onboard Activities and Port Adventures before the clock strikes 12:00 a.m. (Eastern time, mind you) the day your booking window opens, you're filling my sails and speaking my language! Whenever we cruise with a large group, we all make our lists of must-dos and see how things shake out, since it always seems we've got everything from Platinum Castaway Club members to first-time sailors in our crew! You're right that it can be a bit of a scramble, so getting organized is always a planDrew-approved approach! 

    As entertainment and activities options are subject to change, there isn't a place to see exactly what is offered on your cruise until your booking window opens, but you can get a good idea of the excitement that awaits by visiting Onboard Activities and filtering by experience type, ship, and age group! From beverage tastings and Senses Spa & Salon treatments for the adults to kid-approved favorite experiences like the Royal Court Royal Tea and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, there are shiploads of activities to explore! 

    The same goes for Port Adventures, where you can take a look at Port Adventures which may be available based on your itinerary's destination! From cabanas, parasailing, and snorkel gear rental on Disney Castaway Cay to a luxury sail and snorkel in Cabo San Lucas, there's an entire world to discover!

    Luckily, there is so much that is already included in a Disney Cruise Line vacation that even without any additional booked activities, you're sure to have plenty to fill your days - some may say too much to do in a single cruise!

    I hope that helps you create your shortlist of activities to keep a weather eye on for you and your crew! Remember to sign in to your account before the clock strikes 12 (again, Eastern time!), and with a little faith, trust, and pixie dust on your side, I wish you smooth sailing when it comes to booking your favorites! Oh, and don't forget to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app, too - you can book activities there as well!

    Thank you so much for your question, Sonia! if you have any others as your booking window comes over the horizon, please drop me another line here at planDisney! 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
