    Besides sports simulator, are reservations taken for other sports or activities on the goofy sports deck, such as basketball courts? Activities so busy a few years ago on our cruise, if no reservations, any advice for hopes of grabbing a basketball court?

    Ahoy, Kelly!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I loved playing basketball as a little girl and still do! The first time I saw there were basketball hoops on the deck of a Disney Cruise ship I couldn't believe it! Having the opportunity to play basketball while sailing the high seas with Captain Mickey and his friends was something I never dreamed of being able to do while playing on my high school basketball team!

    Reservations are only taken for the Virtual Sports Simulators at Goofy's Sports Deck. The rest of the activities, like playing basketball or miniature golf, are available on a first-come, first-served basis. It's been my family's experience that grabbing a basketball court was easier on days the ship was docked at a port of call. We still might have had to share with one or two other Guests, but that made our games more fun! The courts were much more crowded during days at sea. Also, the miniature golf was usually open later in the evening and those hours were less crowded! Playing miniature golf under the stars in the middle of the ocean has become a family tradition!

    You will be able to find the hours when Goofy's Sports Deck, Goofy Golf and the Sports Simulators are open each day in your Personal Navigator newsletter or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. I hope you and your family are able to enjoy all the fun on Deck 13 during your voyage to paradise!
