    What activities need to be reserved before we embark on the ship? Like spa / kids activities / movies?

    Ahoy, Shannon!
    It's great to hear from you again with another excellent cruise question! On the Disney Cruise Line website, you will be able to reserve some activities prior to your departure once your cruise is paid in full. If you are a first time cruiser, reservations can be made 75 days prior to departure in the "My Disney Cruise" section. Once you are logged in, navigate your way to "My Reservations" and look for "My Cruise Activities." On the Disney Wonder, port adventures, spa treatments, adult dining at Palo and nursery reservations can all be booked before you sail. Please note all of these activities are offered for an additional fee. Kids programming at the Oceaneer Club/Lab does not need to be reserved ahead of time. Once your children are registered (either online in the check-in section or on the ship), they can visit these imaginative areas for hours on end! First-run movies in the Buena Vista Theatre, the Broadway-style productions in the Walt Disney Theatre and other entertainment in the theaters and lounges do not require reservations either. 
    I hope I've steered you in the right direction, Shannon! If you have further questions about your magical voyage, please let us know! We are always happy to help!
    Have a "Wonder"ful day and happy planning!
