    Are imessages/facetime on apple phones free on the cruise or is that something I will have to get the wifi for? I have a child I am wanting to keep in contact with, which is why I ask.

    Welcome to planDisney Jennifer!

    While it is always nice to have a few days at sea away from it all, sometimes you still need to keep in contact with the "real world!" While onboard your Disney Cruise, you will be able to stay in touch through imessage. There is no additional cost for this. Both the sender and receiver must have imessaging for it to work. Please note that only text works, photos will not send. 

    If you need access to the internet during your sailing, sign up for Connect at Sea when your board the ship. Remember that you are in the middle of the ocean, so internet is not going to be speedy like at home, but it will help keep you connected if you need something beyond the imessaging. 

    To avoid any extreme cell phone bills when you get home, set your phone to "DCL-GUEST" when boarding the ship. You will then be able to access the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app while sailing. The Navigator is like having your own personal cruise director as it has dining times, menus, activity schedules, deck plans, and so much more. 

    Wishing you a magical sailing with Disney Cruise! Bon Voyage!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
