    We were only able to book 2 out of the 6 of us on the Magen's Bay excursion in St. Thomas. How hard is it to add the rest of the party (4 people) once we get on the ship?

    Hi Kristen!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Before you know it, your vacation will be here, and you will be on your way for fun in the sun onboard the beautiful Disney Fantasy.  I noticed that you will be taking a tiny Mouseketeer with you, and I absolutely love that!  My boys we both under one on their first Disney Cruise Line vacation and we have some of the best memories from those adventures.  They certainly won’t remember it, but that’s what pictures are for, right?!?

    Booking an excursion through Disney Cruise Line’s Port Adventures is a great idea because they do all the work for you and you just have to worry about showing up and enjoying!  From my experience, adding extra Guests to Port Adventure excursions once onboard is harder that adding onboard activities since there are more factors involved.  Since Disney Cruise Line works with local vendors for the excursions it is often hard to add additional Guests due to transportation and other logistics for the day’s activity.  If you don’t plan on leaving anyone onboard in the Youth Clubs or nursery, I recommend waiting until you are onboard to inquire about availability for your entire family.  Another option is to book a private excursion through a vendor and not through Port Adventures to get you to a beach for the day!  In the meantime, continue to check back and see if additional spots open for the Magen’s Bay tour!  You may also want to consider the Coral World Ocean Park excursion; my family loved it!  

    Wishing you a FANTAStic adventure at sea with Captain Mickey!

    Happy Sailing!
