    Do you have to book reservations ahead of time to meet characters on the Disney wish?

    Hello, Ashley! Thanks for visiting us at planDisney. Welcome!

    I'm more than happy to help you prepare for your time aboard the magnificent Disney Wish. You'll be enchanted by the decor, experiences, dining, and entertainment offered throughout your sailing. There are some fabulous opportunities to meet your favorite Disney friends, and most do not require reservations. Let's talk about the two that do: Royal Gathering and Olaf's Royal Picnic

    The Royal Gathering is a complimentary experience but does require reservations. This is a chance to meet several Disney princesses in succession. You will also have the choice to meet them on their own (no reservation required) however, this is a great opportunity for you to have many royal greetings all at once! You may book a reservation for the Royal Gathering 30 days prior to your sailing. Visit My Cruise Activities in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to make your reservation. 

    At Olaf's Royal Picnic, you are invited to celebrate summer in the Arendelle Castle with Olaf, Kristoff, Anna, and Elsa while you take part in treats and merriment among the splendor of summer. Olaf's Royal Picnic is a specially priced experience, available for an additional fee, and designed for children ages 3-12 and their parents. This experience includes a distinguished assortment of gifts for each child in attendance and promises to be a special and memorable event. This event can be reserved when your advance booking window opens (75 days before you sail if you are a first-time guest of Disney Cruise Line). 

    All other opportunities to greet Disney Characters will be outlined in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. You'll be able to view the schedule once you step aboard the ship. Character Greeting activities are plentiful! The Daily Activity Schedule will list when and where to meet your favorite Disney Friends. It's a great idea to get to the meeting spot about five to ten minutes early for minimal wait times. Take lots of pictures and enjoy those magical memories!

    Please set your course for planDisney again if you have more questions. My pals and I are always here and happy to help!
