    We are boarding the sip between 11:30-12:00, but it won’t leave until 4:00. Will there be food or snacks available as soon as we get on board? If not am I allowed to pack snacks in a carry on bag for my daughter?

    Ahoy Bailey!

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I will tell Captain Mickey you are on your way since I'm sailing on the Disney Magic right before you do! Aren't you excited that New Orleans is a new port for Disney Cruise Line? I know I cannot wait to let the good times roll in the Big Easy before we start our adventure at sea!

    Your question taps into a tale as old as time: what are my food options when I board a Disney cruise? As soon as Guests begin boarding the ship, restaurants will be ready to say "Be Our Guest." From Cabanas buffet to a sit down dining room, there's definitely something there that wasn't there before you boarded. Like Belle never leaves home without a good book, you should never leave the port without having downloaded the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. It will reveal the full story of all the dining choices, menus, and even what characters you might see on your  magical journey. 

    Other popular lunch or snack choices that Gaston would gobble up are the poolside quick service spots that serve pizza, hamburgers, sandwiches, and of course, soft serve ice cream at Eye Scream Treats! Don't forget to pack your carry on bag with bathing suits and sunscreen so you can be the first to make a splash in the pool and not have to wait for Cogsworth and Lumiere to deliver your luggage to your stateroom. 

    I can tell you want adventure in the great wide somewhere, and we're happy to help with all of that! Waltz back over to the Disney Parks Moms Panel anytime!

    Bon Voyage!
