    Is there anything we should be doing now that we have paid in full for our July 14th - 7 day trip? I know we can't plan activities until April 30th, but is there anything else we should be doing at this point?

    Hi there, Becki!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How excited you must be to be going on your first Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Your trip aboard the Disney Fantasy will be absolutely magical and you will create so many lasting memories!

    As a first-time cruiser, your booking window and Online Check-In window opens 75 days prior to your departure.  Once that date arrives, you will complete your online check-in and book any onboard activities and onshore excursions you want to do during your week at sea.  My suggestion to you would be to explore all the Port Adventures available for your itinerary’s ports of call so that once your check-in date arrives you are ready to book and secure your spot for those activities!  You may also want to think about the onboard activities that you are interested in reserving, such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or adult-exclusive dinners.  Also ensure that you have any pre/post cruise transportation and travel booked as you will need that handy when you complete your online check-in.

    If you have not yet done so, download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to your smartphone to have daily schedules, deck plans and a handy chat feature in which you can keep in touch with others in your travel party while onboard! Also visit My Cruise Photos to learn about the photo packages available for pre-purchase allowing you to bring home the magical memories made onboard!

    Happy Planning and Happy Sailing!
