    What activities are still "paused" on DCL? A disney blogger wrote that the Sail Away Celebration, the Pirate’s Night deck party, and up-close character interactions continue to be paused. We are booked on the June 11th cruise on the Fantasy.

    Ahoy there, Claire! Welcome to the planDisney panel. I'm so glad you stopped by with your question as you prepare to set sail on the Disney Fantasy. It looks like today is THE day you head out for an adventure. I hope you have the most wonderful time. 

    As Disney Cruise Line returns to sailing once again, we've been seeing a gradual return of fan-favorite activities. I recently sailed with Mickey and the gang and I can tell you that deck parties are happening again. I experienced the high-energy Sail-a-Wave Party on embarkation day on the Disney Magic, and the Pirates in the Caribbean Deck Party during our voyage on Pirate Night. Entertainment experiences are subject to change, but I'm hopeful that you'll get to enjoy deck party celebrations. If you are a Castaway Club member and return cruiser of the Disney Cruise Line, you may notice some updated experiences. There's a lot to enjoy and discover if this is your first cruise or your fifteenth!

    While I wasn't able to hug characters while sailing two weeks ago, I did get some great photos with my family and our favorite characters. I'm hopeful that you do as well. There are lots of magical moments ahead. 

    If your sailing party includes anyone young, or young at heart, be sure to check out the Midship Detective Agency while onboard. It's a fun way to explore the ship, interact with the artwork, and solve a mystery or two. And don't forget, if you are interested in sailing again with Disney Cruise Line within the next two years, you can book a placeholder cruise with the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to sail at a discounted price on select cruises. 

    Thank you for visiting the planDisney panel. I wish you a most magical vacation!
